Recover from bad Firmware update?
Posted on 2013-01-26
Anyway to unbrick a Brother laser HL2270DW black and white printer?
All I know so far is from an email I got from a friend:
I was trying to update the firmware so I could get the Ariel font. The process got to about 90% and it stopped. It actually shut the computer down. When I turn it off, wait a bit, turn it back on, the lights stay on for about ten seconds and then it goes out again and shuts down.
Is there anything I can do, short of tossing the printer on the scrapheap?
Already tried a Reset using the GO button (8 presses) from the Brother site.
Also unplug/plug holding Power button.
Unplug/plug holding the GO button.
Any other bright ideas out there?
