If you are having problems printing, check your Drum unit, Ink or toner level, or Wi-Fi connection. All of these can be a cause of Error code 55.

This article is meant to help you resolve errors caused by the Brother printer.
Error code 55
If you are getting the error code 55 on your Brother printer, you should consider a few things. First, the fuser unit could be the cause of this problem. In some cases, the fuser unit is faulty and may fail to warm up properly. You can try to reset this error code on your Brother printer by turning it off and on again. If these steps fail, call Brother printer support for assistance. Listed below are some brother printer troubleshooting steps to fix the error code 55 on your Brother printer.
Check the cables. Sometimes, a faulty cable or the EIO board of the printer is the culprit. If all these do not work, it might be a hardware fault. The best thing to do is to consult a technician. There are a variety of solutions to this problem. If none of these work, try replacing the cable or trying another computer port. If all else fails, you can try the reset procedure, as this will fix the error.
The error "Brother printer drum unit is not functioning properly" may occur for a number of reasons, and one of these causes is a dirty corona wire. Other causes of the error include the improper installation of the toner cartridge or drum unit. If you have been experiencing this problem, here are some solutions to try. Hopefully, you'll be able to fix the problem on your own and avoid calling tech support.
To clean the corona wire, remove the top cover of the Brother printer and lift it upwards until you hear a click. After this, remove the drum unit from the printer and install a new one. Be careful not to touch any of the electrodes. Any static electricity may be damaging the printer. If you find any of these solutions to be helpful, you can reset the drum counter on the machine by moving the tab from one end to the other.
When your printer isn't connecting to your Wi-Fi network, you might be wondering where the problem might be. A good place to start is to check if the printer is connected to the same wireless network as your computer. If the answer is yes, then you should try turning off your antivirus and firewall. Also, make sure that your printer is in the DMZ settings on your router. Sometimes, your printer may be in deep sleep mode and won't print anything unless you unplug it and reconnect to it.
If you've tried these things, and your printer still won't connect, check whether you have the right wireless security information set up on your network. If you're not sure how to do this, consult your printer manual. Some brother printers may have an old wireless profile that conflicts with the wi-Fi router. To resolve this problem, you can reset your router's SSID and network name to the manufacturer's recommended settings.
Ink or toner level
If your Brother printer is showing an error message that states "Ink or Toner Level Low," you should first check the ink or toner level. The error may appear when the printer has run out of ink or toner and is no longer printing legibly. Your printer may also begin replacing one colour with another, such as black ink with blue ink. Sometimes it will simply stop printing altogether and display the ink level in its status bar.
If the ink or toner level of your Brother printer is too low to cause these problems, you can try checking the alignment manually. Many Brother printers have an alignment feature that automatically adjusts itself, but you should make sure to check it. Another sign of low ink levels is a blurred or faded image. You can check the ink level visually by comparing the weights of the cartridges. If there is a large difference between the two, you may have a low-ink cartridge.
You may have encountered a problem with your Brother printer and it's preventing you from using it. Windows no longer recognizes it, and it's unable to print or update its firmware. The reason for this is unclear. Brother is working on a solution, but there's no timetable for the fix. The following steps may be helpful in your situation. Follow these steps to fix the problem.
First, make sure that the printer's USB port is connected to the computer. If it's not, the cable may be connected to the wrong port. To fix this, follow the steps outlined below. If you can't find the printer's model number in the device list, check if you've installed the latest version of the printer's driver. If it's still not showing up, you can download it from the official Brother Printer website.
