I'm afraid there is no simple solution to this problem.
Error codes 50 and 51 refer to problems with the purging mechanism - some of the whirring and clicking noises you hear when the machine self cleans or starts up are it purging ink from the print head. Through some very clever mechanics, the machine uses the paper feed motor (running in the opposite direction to normal) to perform purging.
Possible causes listed in the Brother Service Manual for this error code range from "simple" things like a misaligned cam, to complex problems with the main control board. However, whatever it is, dismantling these machines isn't staright forward and parts are very diffciult to obtain and very, very expensive, so much so that 99 times out of a 100, it isn't cost effective to repair.
You could approach a Brother service agent, but it's highly probably that they will charge you more than buying an equivalent brand new machine.
The error message "Print Unable 46" is an indication that the machines ink absorbers are almost full. The ink absorbers hold liquid and dried ink after it has been purged from the print head. These absorbers can control enough ink for the expected life of the machine.
There is a possibility that this message may have occurred in error. Upgrading the firmware of the Brother machine may resolve the issue. Follow the procedure below to determine if a firmware update is required: -if the display screen is displaying an error message, press the STOP/EXIT key to change the LCD to the main screen. -press the # and * key at the same time. The first 2 characters on the top row will determine the ROM version.
If the ROM version is OE or greater (example: OF, OG, OH, etc), the firmware does NOT need to be upgraded. If the ROM version is OA, OB, OC or OD, follow the procedure on this link to upgrade the firmware.
If the message "Print Unable 46" continues to appear on the display the Brother machine after completing the firmware upgrade and your machine is within warranty (even if it's not under warranty you have to do the same thing), you have to take it to a Brother Authorized Service Center. http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/us/us/en/faq/faq/000000/002600/000059/faq002659_000.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc290c_all&Cat=11
An error coded 4F means that there is a mechanical problem with the printer, usually, "unable to print means one of two things. Firstly an empty cartridge, secondly a full absorbing pad. I am guessing that the latter is not the priblem as the code would be #46, so if the ink cartridges are empty, get them replaced or refilled then disconnect the machine from the power for about 5 minutes, then reconnect and it should reset itself.
on my DCP 130C display appear an errore message "imp. stamp 50". This is an error message in italian language that indicate impossible to print, error 50.
Please, have you some suggestion to resolve this problem?
Thansk in advance
This COULD BE that there is some paper stuck in the dcp. Open cover and try to see if there is some paper left in the machine. I ve noticed, that -seeing from behind!- on the right side paperpieces are stuck and disturb the disk (foil) which give the printer info what to do.
Open cover and try to look into the edges (seeing from the front: its the left side -where the modell name is printed)
In some cases this means that the purgecamshaft is defective.
