Question about Brother Multi-Function Center MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer
I get Change Unable 50 error. There is no paper jam or foreign object as the manual suggests for the possible cause of this error. I checked the other post but the picture is not so clear to take the unit's cover apart so that I get to see the print head. Please let me know how I can fix this problem. Thank you.
I also had this problem, your solution was spot-on, remove the top cover and control panel and re-seat the encoded strip. simple.
boy, are you guys good.

The solution jast like Solution #3 :
1-remove the top cover
2-remove the panel
3- re-seat (re - s e a t !!! not re- s e t !! ) the encoded strip.
now i will write in hebrew :
1-לפתוח את המכסה של המדפסת
2-להרים את הקונטרול פאנל (איפוא שכל המספרים הצג וכו') יש שם 3 ברגים להוציא את הברגים להרים את המכסה הזה שם יש שני חיבורים שבכל חיבור יש כמה חוטים, להוציא את שני החיבורים הקטנים האלה ולהחזיר מחדש לפתוח מחדש את המדפסת . אני מקווה שזה יעזור

My MFC-845CW reported "Unable to Change 50". It cleared after I manually inserted a sheet of paper at an angle and then moved the printhead over the paper. The paper absorbed some black ink, which surprised me but like I said the error cleared.

This error is usually caused by the Carriage Encoder Strip being dislodged from
the sensor mounted on the Print Head/Carriage Assembly.
Unfortunately, you will need to remove the scanner assembly, and top cover assembly to check to see if the encoder strip has come out of the printhead assembly.
