Sometimes you need to feed photo paper one sheet at a time.

Keeps saying there is a paper jam and there is no paper jam what so ever

Still the logic board thinks there must be a paper jam. Could be caused by a defective sensor, bad connection from sensor to logic board or a defective logic board. And what is very common, something dropped in the printer and really blocks a sensor.
check all places where the paper can go, if perhaps a paperclip or a little scrap od paper is blocking a sensor.
Or contact a service centre, or perhaps you start sving for a new printer?

Brother 540cn Printer won't print and displays unable to print 50. The photo capture button also flashes

The error code 50 indicates a paper jam condition. Whether there's actually still paper jammed or not, it's sensors are still indicating a jam. Check again for a bit of paper, or there may be a faulty sensor.

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.

When printing lines are running through the sentences.I have a brother mfc440cn printer

I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck

Not printing glossy A4 paper / paper jam / no paper feed

dont use thick photo paper like 230 gsm up, instead use 180 gsm papers. but if you dont want to waste the purchased thick photo papers, you can open the back and manually insert the paper once the printing process started. i tried this as a trial & error basis until i had perfected it.... hope it works with yours.

Torn paper jam Brother mfc 440cn

I pull paper out to remove it too, no worries, who doesn't.
You may be able to open the back of the unit up and there are a few rollers there than can be manipulated. Make sure it's unplugged. Don't force too hard but a little push or pull wont hurt.
Try rolling all the rollers that are in reach to see if you find anything, and they may need to be cleaned a little (not with anything wet!) with your finger is fine...they collect paper dust. You can blow in any area to try and clear any other paper dust also.
Let me know if this helps.

Photo Paper Jams

Based on your question, my first thought is that you changed the type of photo paper you used starting "this week" (when you first posted your question). If you did, the photo paper size/thickness may not be compatible with your printer.

Otherwise, there may be a problem with the paper sensor. Click on the following link and review the troubleshooting steps, particularly Step 2, to see if that helps:

Post back your results. If you are still having the problem, post any additional information you think might help solve the problem. Thanks and good luck.
