There might be some paper left in the machine. Check the very edges espacially the left side (seeing from the front).

Another reason could be that the encoder strip isn t in right position or is stained from ink.

Anyway try the first solution first.

If you stll have trouble try to open the printer:

and have a close look to the encoder strip + disc (and look out for some paper in the edges... ;-))

SOURCE: unable to operate printer when i

based on research.. Looks like this happens when it's starting up. it goes a short distance and then jams up.

See what could be jamming up the cartridge.

Do you have any specific model information?

Unable to print 34 (what is it and how to correct)


This means there may be a paper or object like a paper clip inside the printer. Have you just had a paper jam?
Open the unit and inspect for paper or an object.
Follow the directions in the manual regarding saving any unprinted faxes, then disconnect power for ten seconds. Plug the unit back in. It should be working.

34 short paper


The printer does not auto detect your paper size and so when your Legal size document was printed on Letter size paper, you get a 34 Short Paper message.

Brother MFC-440CN printing error


I encountered the same problem. I just took all what's left of the paper from inside of the machine and than took off this plastic cover from the back of the machine. Than "unable to print 34" message disappeared, and "receiving data" message appeared on the lcd. Without the plastic cover machine released 3 pages and showed this message about paper fed. Than I put the cover back on it's place and pushed the green button (colour). Than again "receiving data" and mfc 440cn just printed requested documents. I have no idea why it was so simple, maybe i was lucky, no harm in trying after all, good luck!
