Question about Brother MFC-290C Printer
This is very common on Brother MFCs - they self clean excessively and when they've done a set number of self-cleans, they refuse to print and give the error message you quote.
There is a work around - you can reset the self-clean counter - but this carries a small risk the waste ink from cleaning that is normally stored insde the machine in a tank/sponge MAY leak out. I've done the work around on my Brother MFC and, so far, no leakage so if I were you I'd take a punt.
Just Google "brother mfc unable to clean" and somewhere in the results will be how to reset the counter - it's all done from the keyboard so no tools required.
