Brother HL-2130 printing fine then suddenly showed "error" and stopped.
Unable to clear error led no matter what - removed & restored power, removed and replaced toner cart, rebooted PC all to no avail.
I realise that this is a fairly cheap model.
Is it worth trying to get it fixed or simply bin it and go buy another.
Cheers

Try fixing it before binning.

Have a read of the following https://printerthinker.com/brother-hl-2130/ Several items can be reset.

Thanks Wai T,
Useful link but unfortunately it tells me that my problem appears to be a faulty PCB.
With the weird pricing arrangements these days a new printer will cost about the same as 5 minutes of a serviceman's time.
My choice now appears to be a no brainer really - new unit!
Thanks for your help anyway.
Cheers
