Mfc-240 keeps showing Low temperature Allow machine to warm

Customer Question

mfc-240 keeps showing Low temperature Allow machine to warm up to room temperature. Have left it for days and still shows same. Cant print. Thanks
JA: What's the make/model number of your printer? How old is it?
Customer: MFC-240C we dont use it that much, thought i would try to have it fixed. Has always been good until recently. Dont know how long we have had it, maybe 5 years.
JA: What kind of computer are you printing from (Mac or PC)? What Operating System (OS) are you running?
Customer: PC ,But it doesnt copy or scan regardless. Message keeps showing.
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: A few weeks. Dont remember how it started, everything was good, then when i went to copy something else the message showed. I turned it off for a few days, then when I turned it back on everything was ok for a few days. when I went to copy again message came back.
JA: Anything else you want the printer expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: Should I keep trying or is it unfixable.

Hi and welcome to the site, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, have you tried opening all doors and covers to expose most of the inside to ambient air?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
this problem hasnt happened before a few weeks ago, and the printer has been in the same place for years. I am sorry but i dont wish to continue this as i am not very tech savy and finding this very difficult. I thought it would be much easier. Thanks
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
No I dont wish to spend any money , because if it doesnt work i have to get a new printer anyway... Thank you for your suggestion. How do I cancel this question request
