|Brother DCP-120c - Machine Error 5A by d4nnyt (1/24/08 11:56 AM) reply|| + / -|
|Previously had error code 46, I fixed this problem following some good (but fragmented) instructions from this site. |
I have put the printer back together but it sounds a bit different. It won't print anything it just says "Unable to init", I looked this up by switching it off then on whilst holding the menu key. It says "Machine Error 5A".
Can anyone help as to what this means or how I could fix it.

|I've got the same problem with my Brother MFC-210c. Fixed error 46 with a new ink absorber tank and reset the counter. Got it printing, though the lines were blurred and letters stacked up. Then got Error 5A.|
I found this on FixYa:
I doubt I'll make any further moves to fix the unit as I got given it for free anyway. Disappointing to note that this unit was almost new (all ink tanks were still over 80% full!) The consensus seems to be - "don't buy a Brother". Then again, I also hear the same but substitute the word Brother with HP, Canon, Lexmark, etc etc etc.

|After I have read your message I decided that the machine was broken so what the hell. So I opened it again and start to move some things a little bit because I thought that When I changed the ink box I did something wrong. I had hear a little noise before as everybody so I thought it was broken. Anyway I put everything in place again and the noise disappeared. Then I pressed menu for 15 sec while plugging it. I pressed 8, ok and 0 ok. Then I pressed the mono start button until I found something that said error 5A (you find it after purge), then I pressed 2 ok 7 ok 8 ok and 3 ok. The error disappeared and the printer started to clean and to work normally. I am not an technician I just thought that the printer was broken so I tried everything. Otherwise I had to throw the printer out. Hope this helped.|
