Brother mfc3240c - paper doesn't load due to ink spill
I was told that, due to ink spilling when I moved the machine to take it to a repair center, the paper won't load because it's sticky inside. The person who repairs them said that it's very difficult to clean, he's tried and may have to try some more but isn't sure he can repair it.

There is no option for that but you can try this: Tell the person who repairs your printer to clean your machine with cami cal or any liquid after deassembling it. after that reassemble it.
I think this will help you.

The printhead is stuck in the tilted position or is not able to tilt forward to the print position, due to problems:
Has ink spilled ink around the printhead that prevents it from moving to its center position? You should be able to push the printhead right to left. Clean the printhead area. Is the printhead stuck to the Wiper Blade? Check the process drive gears for obstructions. Ensure the gears are correctly aligned and homed. Has ink spilled on the Head Tilt gear drive train? Clean the gears area of ink.
I just had this error message appear on my computer screen and the 6A00 on my MP830 printer at the same time. I heard this error mean a few things (paper jam, ink carriage stuck), though not sure what it does actually mean. I moved the carriage back-and-forth, blasted compressed air and checked for paper jams. When nothing worked, I looked inside and saw a lot of spilled ink, I'm guessing from not using genuine Canon ink. I blotted the inside with paper towels (use gloves!!),especially the far right, and took out the ink cartridges and blotted the carriage. I replaced everything, powered the printer off and on, and it worked fine. I would suggest first to slide the carriage back-and-forth and look for paper jams before cleaning the ink. Hope this works for you.
check drum for sign of line, if not found proceed to fuser for a sign of toner spill. for where ever spill found clean and make a test print again. if found again remove toner and check for possible spillage path for the repair or replacement.
Sounds like your new cartridges are not being recognized, correct?
If not done already please ensure each cartridge has any plastic packing strips (usually with a colored tab) off the outside of the cartridge. Vendors use these to cover the contacts and/or the print heads for shipping and can be tricky to see.
Otherwise please ensure no ink has spilled or leaked into the slot where your printer cartridge goes. Use good computer cleaning swabs or wipes to remove any ink spill or dirt there. Gold contacts should be clean. Good cleaning wipes or swabs will let you remove dirt and ink but not leave fuzz or strands of cloth in printer. At this time you can also ensure no paper or labels etc are left inside covering gold contacts.
The machine needs to be disassembled and cleaned. Evidently, some ink or toner spilled onto the drum or the paper loading mechanism. After putting it back together, realign the heads and do a test print. It should be good as new.
Any type moisture on a printer can cause many problems especially a malfunction and possibly destroyed your whole printer. It will need to be cleaned very well in every area of the spill. Rollers, gears, shafts, surfaces must be clean for printer to function properly.
Could possibly have to uninstall all printer software drivers and reinstall them restarting your machines.
