Question about Brother Multi-Function Center MFC-665CW All-In-One InkJet Printer
I am getting an error message stating "unable to clean 51" What does this mean and how do I fix it so my printer will print.
Here's how I got rid of errors#50 and #51 on the Brother MFC-665CW, MFC440CN and like.
Open the 2 top-covers and locate the printer hole, a large horizontal hole near the back of the printer. The printer head is usually on the right and the cleaning pad, on the left. Locate them with a flash light.
For error #51 (Inkpad full): take some scott towel and gently press on the cleaning pad. Be ready to fill several Scott Towel sheets. Wear some gloves and/or have some "clorex"/"hertel plus" nearby to clean your hands.
For all errors, disconnect printer and move the head to the left. You may have to play with an horizontal bar with a gear at the right, near the printer head. The printer head get stuck in that gear and it pops error #50, but it can be unstuck gently by hands. close covers and power-up. Expect 3-5min for the printer to clean-up. First sheets may not have all colors.

Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
