If your printer`s status displays “Printer in error state,” there may be a problem with the printer itself. Make sure the printer is turned on and connected to your PC by Wi-Fi or cable. Check it for low paper or ink, and be sure the cover isn`t open and the paper isn`t jammed.
The message “Unable to Print 44” will appear on the display for one of the following reasons: i. A foreign object, such as a paper clip or ripped piece of paper, is stuck in the machine; ii.
This error often occurs because of data corruption: print once more, print directly without using a spooler queue, check your driver settings or try some of the other tips from the PostScript troubleshooting page. Maybe it is the application you use to print the file that doesn`t create correct PostScript code.
Your computer may not be properly connected to the printer. Perform the setup procedure described in the Setup sheet. The interface cable may not be plugged in securely. Check both ends of the interface cable between the printer and the computer.
“Machine Error 77” is an indication of a mechanical malfunction or that the ROM in the machine is detecting a false error. This error may be caused by a surge or power outage.
Machine Error 7E is an indication of a mechanical malfunction of the Brother machine. Unplugging the machine from the power outlet for approximately 30 seconds and then plugging it back in may temporarily resolve the issue, but the machine will require service.
Select Start , then select Settings > Devices > Printers & scanners . Scroll down to Related Settings and select Print server properties. Select the Drivers tab, and see if your printer is listed. If it is, you`re all set.
a misprint or misspelling in a text.
A mistake in anything that`s printed is a misprint. You might also call it a typographical error or typo. Misprints are an embarrassment for the publisher, since they`re evidence of a hasty printing job or a lack of careful proofreading.
Use the Factory Reset function to restore all settings back to the factory settings. Unplug all the interface cables before you perform a Factory Reset. Press the Up or Down arrow key to select Initial Setup, and then press OK. Press the Up or Down arrow key to select Reset, and then press OK.
Syntax errors are mistakes in the source code, such as spelling and punctuation errors, incorrect labels, and so on, which cause an error message to be generated by the compiler. These appear in a separate error window, with the error type and line number indicated so that it can be corrected in the edit window.
The Python SyntaxError occurs when the interpreter encounters invalid syntax in code. When Python code is executed, the interpreter parses it to convert it into bytecode. If the interpreter finds any invalid syntax during the parsing stage, a SyntaxError is thrown.

Brother MFC 7220 "back cover open" error
ANSWER : Just googled this problem and delved into the innards of the machine. Lo and behold, there was a piece of paper stuck there and I have removed it (with difficulty). So it wasn’t “back cover” at all (which I kept on banging shut of course!). Misleading!

Brother Intellifax 4750e 77 error
ANSWER : I just received a used fax machine from a school district that recently purchased a new one. Everything is fine except the indicator light is not lit. It runs perfectly, I just can’t read anything on the screen. Also, is there any way I can get a manual other than printing it. There are 156 pages and I will run out of toner or paper, or both. Thank you.

Error Code 51.1 says Printer Error No Kidding.lol
ANSWER : Sometimes turning off and on will allow you to print a few pages. The error is a beam detect error. The only real fix is to replace the laser scanner unit. Could be a loose connector on the scanner or DC controller from the scanner. That’s unlikely. You could try the only other free fix which is to open the scanner assy. and clean all the mirrors inside. The dust could obstruct the laser beam enough to cause the detect error.
