Carriage Jam problem. Have gone through complete troubleshooting routine, but the message just won't go away. Says ""Carriage Jam". No debris to left or right of carriage. In fact, the jam was in the paper...

This error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.

Check for a paper jam. I just encountered this same error on my Brother MFC-290C, and that was the cause. I had to unplug the printer's power cable to clear the error message.

May be you should have the printer checked by a qualified technician.
I guess that when you aunt removed the paper, she did it by applying excessive force causing damage to the printer mechanic.

Solution #1 is absolutely spot-on from adnanbhatti, copy the link into your browser to be able to see the photos of the printer and how to slide the print head:

When I slid the print head over as specified, I found a little crumpled paper fragment soaked with ink. Pulled it out.... I turned on the printer, it ran a cleaning cycle automatically, and started printing just fine!

I have a color MFC 5 in 1 printer

If you did not get ALL the jammed sheet out, there is still a small piece of paper in there somewhere, probably covering a sensor or micro switch. Get a torch and look carefully. If youu don't find anything you may need to disassemble the printer to find it. Sounds like something is jamming.

Not printing

Sure. Its a new common problem of brother printers. The paperjam lifted the encoder strip (a foil strip) out of position. The encoder strip gives positioninfo to the printhead. You have to disassemble the printer and simply fix the encoder strip in its position upon the printhead. To avoid this prob in future stick a 3cm tape with a 1cm plastic strip in the middle onto the position where the encoder strip runs thru the printhead. The plastic foil avoids a sticking contact of the encoder strip.
