Importance of Resetting Brother® MFC Printer to Factory Default
What are the various tips to reset Brother MFC printer to factory default?
If any function of the Brother Multi Function Printer is not working, you can access that feature by resetting the machine to make the system go back to the original settings. The original settings of a machine are called default factory settings. Sometimes, the user faces problems like slow printing or the appearing of an error message saying that it received the data but the printer is at halt. It may show an error message asking to insert memory at the time of activating the 'Faxing' function. To reset the print server, take the following steps. Switch on your printer. Press the 'TEST' switch at the rear end of the printer server and hold it for 20 seconds. The Light Emitting Diode stops flashing for a moment and then starts flashing again. It means your printer has gone back to the factory default settings.
The important problems that can be solved by resetting to factory defaults are given below:
- Slow printing
- Fails to print, fax etc
- Not getting the fax
Sometimes, your Brother Multi Function Printer prints very slowly. You can increase the printing speed by resetting the system to its factory defaults. Sometimes, the user gives the printing command. But it doesn't print and shows an error message saying that the printer received the data but it is at a halt. You have to restart your computer to get the printing function. This problem can also be corrected by bringing back the system to its original settings.
Fails to print, fax etc
The trays may slow down and as a result, you get slow printing. The printing may get stuck after you give the command. The Multi Function Printer may seem to be reluctant in feeding the paper and take a lot of time after printing the first page i.e. it takes a lot of time for calibrating. So, the user finds it difficult if he has to print a large volume of data. The same case transpires while sending fax i.e. it takes a lot of time for faxing. All these problems can be solved by resetting.
The user cannot access the 'Fax' function of the Multi Function Printers. The incoming fax document will get stuck or you cannot get the complete fax message. Only one-fourth of the page gets printed. This problem occurs frequently and the MFP seems to be devoid of the faxing capability. The improper feeding of the printing media for faxing may be one reason for this. This problem of the Brother Multi Function printer can also be solved by resetting to the original form.
