Most likely they are being held in memory so you need to go into the menu to have them print out.

SOURCE: I have had my MFC-9420CN for about 4 years. For

mrbarbazza, I feel your pain. I have had a Brother MFC-9420CN for just under 4 years now and for the past 4 months or so, I have been randomly getting the "Paper Jam A1" error. It is particularly annoying when printing or copying a multiple page document and the error occurs on page 3, for example. I pull out the paper tray only to find a perfectly good, undamaged piece of paper that has been half (or less) fed out of the tray which comes out with the tray; it is not even stuck in the printer. I put it back in place in the tray, reinsert the tray into the printer, wait for the printer to go through all kinds of gyrations after which I either have to start the entire print job all over again, or the printer does it on its own. Very rarely will it pick up where it left off. The really frustrating part is, during this next printing, it will get to maybe page 7 out of 10 and the same thing happens. I go through the whole process as does the machine and the whole print job has to start all over again. The last 20 page document that I was copying required all of my restraint to keep me from throwing the whole printer out of my second story window. Now I just print or copy one page at a time and even then I still randomly get the error; there is no rhyme or reason to it. The web is full of several other problems that this multi-function machine has, none of which I have experienced. Your post is the first thing I've seen that even mentions this problem that we have had. Unfortunately I have no solution to offer you. Your post helped me realize that I was not alone with this issue, so I just wanted to return the favor. If I come across any solution, I will be sure to post it here. Best of luck to you.

Error message


I can't find the "50" as part of the "Unable to print" error. Usually when you get "Unable to print", it means there's a torn piece of paper, paperclip, some foreign object in the machine somewhere. Check under the scanner lid and inside the machine, look thoroughly; you may find a piece of paper blocking a sensor. If the error message continues, follow these steps before disconnecting the MFC so you won't lose any important messages. Then, disconnect the MFC from the power source for several minutes (which will erase all faxes), and then reconnect it. Check whether the MFC has faxes in memory: 1. Press Menu/Set, 9, 0, 1. 2. If the MFC has no faxes, disconnect the MFC from the power source for several minutes and then reconnect it. ?OR? If faxes are present, you can transfer them to another fax machine. Go to Step 3. 3. Enter the fax number to which faxes will be forwarded. 4. Press Black Start. 5. After faxes are transferred, disconnect the MFC from the power source for several minutes and then reconnect it. You can transfer the Fax Journal report to another fax machine by pressing Menu/Set, 9, 0, 2 in Step 1. Let me know if it helps!
