Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

My brother mfc 240 c is keep saying paper jam but we have move the cover and we do not see a paper jam how do we resolve this issue please help


If there is no direct symptom of paper jam and still you cannot do printing properly, find whether it is because of drum problem. If the paper gets into the end gear of the rotating drum and gets stuck there, you cannot access the printing function. Switch off your printer and check the plastic arms of the printer drum. If there is any paper piece jammed in any of the arms, you can't continue printing. Here also cleaning is the best method to solve the problem. While cleaning, check the arms of the rotating drum. get more information to fix brother mfc printer paper jam problem .

Will not print or shut off comes up unable to print 50


Hi,
I had this same problem and it is an easy fix. It is similar on all brother printers but mine was a 5860CN.

Lift the lid on your printer and at the back you can see the opening where the print head is.
With the power off, use your finger to move the print head into the middle.
Now feel under the lip of the cover at the front of the gap and you will find a plastic strip that runs from one side to the other. This is the encoding strip and it what the print head uses to read where it is. This encoding strip is easily pushed out of position when a paper jam occurs and all you need to do is to get it back into position. Using both hands use a finger on either side of the print head and lift the encoding strip upwards slightly and move slightly towards the back of the printer. This will locate it back into the correct position in the print head when you release. You can feel this with your fingers. Power back on and the problems will be gone!
Remember and be gentle so as not to damage the encoder strip!

I have a Brother MFC 240C. After I removed paper from a paper jam the printer reads: Print unable 50. See Trouble Shooting and Routine Maintenance chapter in User's Guide. I tried to look this up on...


You may encounter a paper jam while working with your Brother printer. You need to be cautious while feeding the paper to your printer. Paper jams are often obvious, but you might come across a situation when you do not get any indication that the paper has jammed up the printer. In such cases, you need to open your printer and visually inspect it to search for the jammed paper. If the rollers of your printer are leaving marks on the printouts, then there is a need to clean them. Using chemical cleaners such as benzine, thinner, or alcohol to clean the rollers might prove hazardous to your printer.

Had paper jammed - removed jammed paper - but nerror light still on


Before you can clear a "PAPER JAM" or "PRINTER JAM" error, you must locate where in the unit the paper is jammed.
First, unplug the machine for safety and disconnect the telephone line. Next, follow these instructions based on where the paper jam is located.


Paper is jammed inside the paper tray:
  1. Pull the paper tray out of the machine.

  1. Pull out the jammed paper to remove it.

  1. Reload the paper in the paper tray.

  2. Reinstall the paper tray.


Paper is jammed inside the machine:


  1. Remove the jam clear cover on the back of the unit. Pull the jammed paper out of the machine.

  1. Re-insert the jam clear cover.

  2. If you can not pull out the jammed paper, lift the scanner cover from the right-hand side of the machine until it locks securely into the open position.

  3. Remove the jammed paper.

  4. Check the print head's position. In the example photo the print head is positioned at the left hand side of the platen area.

  5. Gently move the print head to the center.

    Note Be careful to not force the print head to move.
    If the print head is positioned at the far right hand side, you cannot move it. Please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us".



  6. Examine under the print head. If anything is found, remove it.

    Note Use a flashlight if necessary to check thoroughly.





  7. Lift the scanner cover to release the lock. Gently push the scanner cover support down and close the scanner cover.

  8. Reconnect the power cord and telephone line.

Note To prevent paper jams, do not put multiple kinds of paper in the paper tray at the same time.

If the message continues to appear on the LCD, the machine will require repair. Please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us".

Paper Jam Light on still


The print head is jamed too...
some wheel are scaled, there might be also a transparent scled band who help the print head.
If one of those was forced, you can replace the printer.
open it and check also if it's clean, this band might be dirty, cleaning with a wet rug (water) good luck.

Printer will not allow paper to flow freely; it jams on the left side and prints crooked.


first cancel all the prints going on and switch off and on the printer and keep the paper slowly

Paper jam Brother MFC-215C


Norman,

does the printhead run smoothly to the left side of the printer when it is powered on?

 

If the printhead cant run that freely, it will give you the paperjam message. You have to dismantle the printer again, connect the scanner and cables again when top cover is removed. Press the scanner open contact (opposite to the menu button) and watch the printhead run to the left side. It might be that either the printhead stucks somewhere on its way (press the cover of the printhead. It might be the reason) or the guide rail hinders the printhead to move.
