Why is that news you ask. Well when was the last time you repaired a technological good vs. just chucking it for a newer version, that’s faster, better, & cheaper.
I googled for a local Brother repair shop, described the problem and got a bid over the phone for $60. Not bad considering that replacement would have cost around $500. Plus I feel good about not dumping this in some landfill.
Next time consider the repair option.
