For error code 6E:

This means the heater temperature isn't rising fast enough.
The heater should rise at 2°C every 5 seconds.

You should first reset the code to see if the problem is just an anomoly or a real problem with the heating circuit (the halogen lamp and/or the power supply PCB). If after resetting the code the error returns, have a technician or service center diagnose which is the culprit (or you could simply replace both yourself -- if that is affordable to you).

To reset the trouble status follows these steps:
1. Press MENU *,2,8,6,4
2. The machine beeps for approx. one second and displays “MAINTENANCE" on the LCD, indicating that it is placed in the initial stage of the maintenance mode, a mode in which the machine is ready to accept entry from the key pad.
3. Now you are inside the simulation Press 01 to reset the trouble status.
4. To exit the simulation press 99.

• Pressing the 9 key twice in the initial stage of the maintenance mode makes the machine exit from the maintenance mode, restoring it to the standby state.
• Pressing the Stop button after entering only one digit restores the machine to the initial stage of the maintenance mode.

I hope this helps.

I have a Brother DCP 8040 combination printer/copier/scanner. It copies and scans (to the computer) fine via a USB connection. I can't figure out how to make it print any document from the computer. If...


If you do not have communication by the printer when connected by USB cable to the USB Port on the Computer; you are lacking the updated printer drivers. Go to Brother on line, plug in the DCP 8040 ( the printer mod.) in the support area, and download the current printer drivers. Install the drivers and see if you can now connect properly. You can also use the Windows DEVICES to locate the printer and check for updates.

To get reset code for errors on brother dcp 8040


6E
Heater temperature does not go up enough.
(Slower temperature rise rate than 2°C/5
sec. is detected.)

To cancel the trouble status follows these steps:
STEP1 .Press MENU *,2,8,6,4
STEP2.The machine beeps for approx. one second and displays “MAINTENANCE" on the
LCD, indicating that it is placed in the initial stage of the maintenance mode, a mode in which
the machine is ready to accept entry from the keys.

STEP3.Now you are inside the simulation Press 01 to reset the trouble status.

STEP4.To exit the simulation press 99

Pressing the 9 key twice in the initial stage of the maintenance mode makes the machine
exit from the maintenance mode, restoring it to the standby state.
Pressing the Stop button after entering only one digit restores the machine to the initial
stage of the maintenance mode.


If again 6E occurs try to check the halogen lamp or power supply PCB.Contact authorized technician to do this checking.
