Re: MFC-240C

You can download instruction book from brother web,
all you need to do is press the two tabs on the rear cover and pull it off, giving access tho the paper, if you have pulled it out from the top, then found rear cover then I suggest you look in either side of the head carriage area (where paper may of been ripped from) cause your paper bits will be smashed up at the ends

Hello FixYa, I have a problem with my Brother MFC-240C. Everytime I try to print something I get a paper jam error message. I have tried opening the back cover and removing the paper but it still does...

This is not a fix, but a troubleshooting step. After you perform this step, please respond and let me know the outcome.

Take a small stack of paper (less than 50 sheets) and place flat in a refrigerator overnight. After the paper has been in there for at least 8 hours, pull it out and fan it (to remove static cling between the sheets). Place in the printer and see if the paper will feed correctly.

If it does, then your problem is high humidity which is a common cause for paper sticking together and causing paper jams. If it doesn't, then you've probably got a torn piece of paper somewhere in the paper path that is causing a jam. Either way, let me know your results so I can help you troubleshoot your issue.

I have brother MFC_240 which after paper jam not printing

My MFC-240C has the same problem. Sometimes you have to turn the printer off and then turn it back on after a paper jam to get it to print again.

Printer prints blank pages

The print head is a part of the printer itself and unlike other printers, you cannot remove it or soak it without ruining your printer. So just try the print head cleaning option and perhaps replace cartridges, especially if you are using a third party or refilled cartridge which can clog even if it is full.

Message unable to print 50

Machine Error 50 either means that there is a loose object inside the machine (usually piece of paper), or that there is a mechanical error which would need you to have the machine sent to service.

Error 50 after jammed paper on brother MFC-240c

I had this too, I had to open the back of the machine, it is meant to open and pull out and clear the jam (pull out the crinkled paper) but everytime I tried to print again it kept saying that it still had the jam, I opened and closed it several times and it did not seem to register that I HAD CLEARED THE JAM, so what I did was unplug it from the wall and then plug it back in and then it was fine. I wonder if this is AN ACTUAL DEFECT with this machine, if ater a paper jam it cannot detect that it has been resolved without having to unplug it and plug it back in, HOPE THIS WORKS FOR YOU.

Paper jam

Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud
