Machine Error 51


More than likely you have a bad printhead, if its under warranty brother will pay to have it fixed, otherwise just play baseball with it and buy another one

Message unable to print 50


Machine Error 50 either means that there is a loose object inside the machine (usually piece of paper), or that there is a mechanical error which would need you to have the machine sent to service.

Message unable to print 50


I have the same problem. Most people i asked about it said it is a mechanical problem. It's better to bring it to a brother service center near you.

Brother 240c


I got one of these from a friend who couldn't get theirs to work. I got an error message that alternated between "print unable 50" and "print unable 30". I called Brother and checked on-line for a solution. Nothing helpful. So I took it apart, (after unplugging it from the power outlet), just a few screws and snap locks really, wasn't too hard. When I got the black case, the body of the MFC, off I found a clear guide ribbon that rests in a track on the back of the print head resting on top of the print-head assembly. I put the ribbon back in the track and reassembled the MFC. I think a bad paper jam pushed the ribbon out of the guide track on the print head . All the errors are gone. There are no instructions for the dis-assembly, but its not hard.


a18573f.jpg The screws, (8-10 screws in all), aren't hard to find, just the two screws hidden under the open hinge as shown here. You have to unplug some circuit connectors too. This method is best done by someone comfortable with taking the MFC apart.

Or if you have small hands, you could probably get it to catch with your fingers in the opening for the print head as shown above, but I didn't get it repaired that way. Good luck. Post the results if you try to fix it.

Error message unable to print


Send it back. The printhead voltage is innnnn disorder. Netxt will be Error 41 (Every Error starting with 4 means probs with printhead and in 99,9% the head has to be changed and cant be fixed!)
