Question about Brother MFC-5840CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
I needed to physically unplug the printer from power before I could clear this message (unable to print 34). For many problems with this printer, I could simply turn the printer off with the on/off switch but it wouldn't work this time. I needed to disconnect the printer from the ups/electrical power to clear the message. (BTW, the printer had NO paper jam that I could see and seems to work fine now)
