    I have two Brother machines:
    MFC 9600
    MFC 4550

    I was able to acquire a copy of the service manuals for each. The manual
    provides instructions for entering the "Maintenance Mode", however it does
    not seem to work on either machine does anyone have any insight to this.

    For bother the instructions are basically the same:

    Press the following buttons within 2 seconds:
    "Function", "*", "2" , "8", "6", "4". The unit will sound a long beep and
    display "Maintenance".

    Either I am doing something wrong, or I have incorrect instructions. Has
    anyone tried this and has it worked?

    Thanks

    Yes it does work....enter the key sequence more quickly. I'm not sure where
    they got the 2 seconds from because from experience you have to do it within
    about a 1/2 second....will take a few tries to get it right (Hint: use more
    than one finger )
