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.

It is my pleasure to guide you.

The machine does not work due to a paper jam or some sensor problem.

Clear the paper jam. (Please refer to "FAQs & Troubleshooting" for information on the Paper Feed Problem.) If the problem still continues after clearing the paper jam, please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us" http://www.brother-usa.com/support/CustServ.aspx.

I have a message on my display screen that says "unable to print 36" What does that mean and how do I fix it?


36 usually means that a paper is jammed. You will have to open it up and manually remove the paper.

My printer Brother DCP 145C doesn't want to print. It takes the paper and then stops. It displays message: Print Unable 36.


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.

Error code 36 is generally because of a paper jam that was not cleared. Remove the rear jam cover (the plastic cover in the back center of the machine)and the paper tray and check for any pieces of paper. Sometimes just a scrap will remain, but it's enough to cause the machine to not work.

Once you've replaced the covers, if the jam code does not reset, turn the machine off and then back on.
