Hi,
The Service Error #50 is basically a Fusing Unit problem and you may actually find out that you may have to replace that assembly, to correct that error condition.
E50 means fuser malfunction. Try to print a configuration sheet (press 3 x set). If that doesn't work, you've to change the fuser.

There is probably caked ink and dust on a wire connection that touches the grey roller of the fuser (that has two rollers). It seems this will happen to a lot of the brothers. You just clean the connection. It's simple, but you have to get to it by removing a lot of screws, pieces, and wire jacks.
To summarize:

Remove top cover, and various plastic pieces in the back to get to the fuser. Then take out the fuser and find the 2 black wires that lead to the problem piece that needs to be cleaned.

When you have gotten to the fuser, remove the two wire jack connections. Remove the two screws holding fuser in. One of those screws is big with a spring - don't worry, the spring stays in place. The other screw looks normal, but it is a little longer than the other screws so remember where you lay it. Find the 2 black wires on the fuser leading to the problem piece. Remove the single screw holding it in. Pull it out and clean the wire connections. Now put things back together!

This is really specialist work (the taking apart and putting back together) for a simple cleaning end. Not for the faint-hearted!
It will either be a complete nightmare or a fun project for you..

I would personally take it to a specialist and get an estimate, and measure that against the price of a new printer. But, if you feel brave and have nothing to lose, have a go..
So you know what the problem is, but can you fix it yourself? Well that's down to you, I can't answer that ;)

Brother mfc5860cn has error message print unable - 4F


Hi there
Please try this.
With some Brother printers you can try this.

Access the internal maintenance mode by pressing the Menu/Set button, then press * 2 8 6 4 within 2 seconds. This should put you in the maintenance mode menu. Enter 80, and then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key. You'll find an entry listed as purge count. If number is over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.

This will reset the purge count value. Then the printer will restart, hopefully without the annoying cannot clean message.


Some times this happens because of using cheap compatible ink cartridges if this is the case change the ink cartridges.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
