SOURCE: Error 50 after jammed paper on brother MFC-240c

I had this too, I had to open the back of the machine, it is meant to open and pull out and clear the jam (pull out the crinkled paper) but everytime I tried to print again it kept saying that it still had the jam, I opened and closed it several times and it did not seem to register that I HAD CLEARED THE JAM, so what I did was unplug it from the wall and then plug it back in and then it was fine. I wonder if this is AN ACTUAL DEFECT with this machine, if ater a paper jam it cannot detect that it has been resolved without having to unplug it and plug it back in, HOPE THIS WORKS FOR YOU.

SOURCE: brother mfc 685cw jammed then get error message

Hi can try this
Hi there
Brother 4F
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, 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.


All I ask is 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.

SOURCE: problem paper jam printer brother no mfc-490cw

Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

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.

The paper sensor is either stuck or dirty.
Just open it and follow the paper path and you should see where it is.

Otherwise, the sensor may be bad.

Paper jam at the rear of my Brother 5910DW printer The paper doesn't go through the roller at the back.


Don't fill the paper all the way to the top. Just load half the tray and try it. Also make sure the top tray for faxing is clear of any paper.

Have an Error 51 on Brother MFC-210C all in one printer?


I can help you with your Brother MFC-210C error 51 problem.

Error 51 refers to a paper jam error.
Clear the paper jam to clear the error code.
If the error code will not clear after clearing the jam, resetting and powering off, the printer may require service.

I hope that helps.

"unable to clean"


Hi dbostrander.
First check for foreign objects in the paper path. Check if you have any faxes in memory because you will lose them when removing power; see later.
Pull out the paper tray from the front and check for paper jams or torn paper anywhere inside the machine. Also check the 'jam clear screen' at the back of the printer. Remove the cover, remove any obstacle then replace ther cover.From the front of the machine lift the top cover from the right side till it is fully open on the slide. Check for jams. If the jam is under the print head you will have to disconnect the power (losing any faxes in memory *see below) to move the print head out of the way to clear the jam.Lift the scanner cover to release the lock. Gently push the scanner cover support down and close the scanner cover.
Check whether the MFC has faxes in
memory
1.Press Menu/Set, 9, 0, 1.
2. If the MFC has no faxes, disconnect the MFC
from the power source for several minutes
and then reconnect it then do as above.


—OR—
If faxes are present, you can transfer them to
another fax machine
If you have not set up your Station ID, you
cannot enter fax transfer mode.
3.Enter the fax number to which faxes will be
forwarded.
4.Press Mono Start.
5.After the faxes are transferred, disconnect
the MFC from the power source for several
minutes and then reconnect it.
You can transfer the Fax Journal report to
another fax machine by pressing Menu/Set, 9,0, 2 in step 1.

Hope this helps,
Mark.

Paper jam in brother MFC 240C


Usually small pieces of paper are jammed at the print head area. Lift up the scanner and see if you can find the paper at the print head parking area, clear the paper . If you can't find the paper, remove the scanner cables, then the scanner. You will see 2 screws at the rear and one near the USB connection. Another 3 screws towards the front will remove the front panel. Under the panel remove 4 screws and the two panel harnesses. The is a speaker harness which you must remember to attach back later (most people don't remember to put back). Lift up the top cover and you can see the whole engine. Clear any pieces of paper that might be there.
