Hello welcome

bbl242003 :

Lets start by performing the following

bbl242003 :

1. Start by Powering the printer OFF

2. Turn the unit back on after a few seconds and while it is still ON, remove the power plug from the back side of it.

3. Wait for 2 minutes to elapse , then plug the unit back in

4. Wait about 3 minutes time for the unit to complete its boot process

5. Now attempt to print, did the error go away?

Yes genuine new ink cartridges
Expert:  bbl242003 replied 3 years ago.
This printer/machine is experiencing condensation inside normally caused by a temperature differential which is frequent when the temp outside the printer and inside vary substantially. Please implement the following solution Please Keep power on and then open the printer front cover. Please Leave the same front cover open for at least 30 minutes. Then Close the front cover. Turn off the machine's power switch and turn it on again This will allow more than enough time for proper ventilation and thus clear the error for you. Please follow up with me on the results, Please do NOT leave me negative feedback as I do not work for Brother Thank you Bruce .
