Try to reset DCP printers without numeric keypad.
Follow this:

1. press buttons Set, Menu, Mono Start one by one, followed by up arrow key four times. this should all be done as short a time as possible, around 3 seconds.

2. enter maintenance mode 80 by pressing the up/down arrow key and set key to select numbers 8 and 0

3. press up arrow key several times to get to the Purge item

4. enter 2, 7, 8 and 3 using arrow/set keys to reset the counter

5. press Stop/Exit key to go to root of maintenance mode

6. enter 9,9 to exit maintenance mode

SOURCE: error 50 afte paper jam

The following is an extract from the Brother Service Manual that covers your machine:
"Error Code 50 & 51: The purge cam switch does not come ON or OFF even after the purge cam has been driven by the specified number of pulses."
The manual lists seven different causes, best case being the need to clean part of the mechanism, the worst case being replace the whole main electronics board !
Unless you have very good skills for dismantling such a complicated machine*, your choices are take it to a Brother Service agent who will probably charge you more than a new machine, or bin it - sorry !
* If you want to have a go at dismantling it, the service manual can be bought on eBay for about £5. If you don't want to spend that much, I can supply you a .PDF file copy for £1 - just post back here and I'll sort it out.

MY BROTHER PRINTER DCP-395 CN ERROR IN UNABLE TO INTI 4F PLEASE SOLUTION


This error is associated with the self test the printer does on the print head during power-up of the printer.

Sadly, it is indicative of either a faulty print head or a faulty main control board, neither of which are easy or inexpensive to replace.

Unless you can get hold of another machine with a different fault and swap over the print head and/or board (you'll need very good skills and tools to do this) then I'm afraid the machine is beyond economic repair*.

* Brother will repair your machine but the cost will likley be more than a new one.

Model DCP 120C-UNABLE TO CLEAN-


Unplug the printer from power cord.Press and hold the "menu" button, then plug the device.You'll see on the LCD screen a "machine error" code.If this code is 40,41 or 4F the print head is defective.If the
error is 50 or 51 there is error in Purge unit and your printer need service.If error is 46 the waste ink tank is full.Follow this:
1. Pres 'menu', 'mono start' then'menu' one by one...
2. Press the arrow up or down to go to'maintenance 80'.
3. Press 'mono start' several times to go to'Purge'. Finding the PURGE will show some numeric value
which is Iassume the number of times the printer had cleaned.
4. Press'arrow up' key and scroll for number "2" then press "set".Do the same for numbers 7, 8 and 3.
After you have entered thiscombination, the purge numeric value will be reseted to 00000.
