Printer online then offline
My first solotution was to reinstall the printer as a new printer. But that is uncessary. The fix is as easy as changing the IP address the in Port.
The problem is the the IP address for your wirelss is not static. and when it changes, the printer does not recognize the new IP address. When this occurs. go the the printer folder ( in the control panel) and click on 'add new priter'. Then select 'add a network wirless printer . NO NEED TO INSTALL THE PRINTER...you just want to see the IP address.
Note the IP address.
GO to the printer, click on the right mouse and select 'properties'
Click on Port
You will see the current port already highlighted.
Click on ' configure port' and change the IP address under "printer name or IP address.

Brother MFC-420CN still unable to clean even after purge reset
You will need to take the scanner unit off and the cover tray. Many screws and clips to find and release. Once you have removed all that, you will find a container located just behind the cartridge bay that looks like it is full of black cotton pads - it is and that's the thing to very carefully remove. Use a bucket or laundry sink to remove the pads and note the order in which the are layered. Wash them out with water until the are relatively clean. Dry them and reassemble in order. Replace everything in reverse order and turn your machine on. You may need to run the maintenance code set again.

The LCD always say PLEASE WAIT
If you have unpluged the machine and repluged it in there is only one thing left apart from throwing it away: try to do a firmware update! download will be done from brother homepage. If youre lucky it will bing the machine back to work.
If that wont do, you have to put it away, sorry (circuitboard defective!)
