Have an Error 51 on Brother MFC-210C all in one printer?


I can help you with your Brother MFC-210C error 51 problem.

Error 51 refers to a paper jam error.
Clear the paper jam to clear the error code.
If the error code will not clear after clearing the jam, resetting and powering off, the printer may require service.

I hope that helps.

Unable to Print 51 is showing on my printer screen...Will not print.


Check for obstruction in printer. Paper chads, paperclips, staple etc. You may need to move the print head manually to find the problem.

Brother MFC-465CN printer Error code 51 unable to print


Usually this is caused by a foreign object or debris under the printhead path, or under where the printhead "parks."

Unplug the machine. Open the cover. Check the printhead path for little bits of paper, push pins, paperclips, staples etc. Note the location of the printhead.

If the printhead is at the far left, gently slide it towards the center (do not force it). Look carefully under where the printhead was stopped for debris. Use a flashlight if necessary.

Close the cover. Plug in the unit. Try again.

Error code 51


That error is telling you that the cleaning assembly is not cycling properly. Usually I find paper scraps on the right stopping it or a broken drive gear that means the entire engine assembly neeeds to be replaced.

Is showing Unable to Print 51 on the screen and will not print or do anything.


This message means that one of the sensors (you can't pin-point which one) has detected something and stops the printer from continuing.

You will need to manually check (after turning off the printer) that there is no paper or debris inside the printer that could be causing the error.

If that doesn't help, try running a head clean as part of its maintenance software (may be under Brother in the Start Menu) or in the Control Panel under Printers.

Boyond this, it looks like you will need to get the printer serviced. If that costs too much, it may be a better alternative going for a new printer instead, but this would be the last resort. Please try the above first.

With regards.
