Question about Brother Multi-Function Center MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer
This is a common problem with this model. I usually occurs after a jam in which when removing the jam your fingers go too far under the cover towards the front and dislodge the encoder strip. Its the strip that sits just above the carriage and tells its location (ie where to print). 30 is obstruction of the carriage and the 50 is cant find the purge station. It is an easy operation to relocate it after pulling it appart but a very dificult task while it is still together and you will probally put the machine out of alignment. An easy operation for your local service centre and it shouldn't cost too much if out of warranty. One of my favourite faults to fix as its easy as.

The instructions for removing the cover were excellent. I would probably not gotten the case open without this advice. In my case, cleaning the encoder strip did to solve the problem. Probably, a new printer is in my future. Thanks for the advice.
