    I called Brother and they said it may have been caused by using the wrong weight of paper. Seems odd to me. Any advice?

    Same problem, can someone please help? I have no idea why it's saying printer error when i removed the paper jam.

I have a Brother MFC-3360C printer and have an error. Clean Unable 51


Error 51 normally indicates a paper jam or a sensor problem. Check the paper path and the printer head movement zones (far left and right) for any foreign objects (even small pieces of paper). If there has been a paper jam, was the paper forcibly removed? If so, possibly one of the sensors has been knocked out of position or damaged. Dust, dirt, grease or spilled ink may also be contaminating a sensor. This is maybe one of the most elusive problems to solve..!

Fax will not print: I connected the fax machine and plugged it in. It sends faxes OK. When a fax is sent to it, nothing comes out. The sending fax doesn't receive an error message, seems like all went...


Does the machine print anything? such as a directory or print when making a copy? I rather suspect it does not. When an incoming fax is recvd does the paper get pulled in and come out blank? If so your problem is with printing (or lack of it). Perform head cleaning. Also make sure the black cartridge still does not have its deal stuck on it. Post again if you still have problem.

Print unable, 50 check trouble shooting chapter, I dont have a book, We need this asap, its for our fire department?? Help Fix


This is Brothers definition of error code 50: "Error Code 50 & 51: The purge cam switch does not come ON or OFF even after the purge cam has been driven by the specified number of pulses."
The manual lists seven different causes, best case being the need to clean part of the mechanism, the worst case being replace the whole main electronics board !
So, no easy fix I'm afraid. You could contact a Brother agent for a repair quote, but in my experience this will cost as much as a new machine. Sorry.

Brother MFC-3360C error message ''PRINT UNABLE 4F .....''


Hi there
Brother 4F is this have a go it could work for you.


Access the internal maintenance mode by pressing the Menu/Set button, then press * 2 8 6 4 within 2 seconds. This should put you in the maintenance mode menu. Enter 80, then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key. You'll find an entry listed as purge count. If number is over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.

This will reset the purge count value. Then the printer will restart, hopefully without the annoying cannot clean message.


All I ask is 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.

No cartridge


Could you please give some more details:
Do you use gerneric ink instead of the original ones?
When did you get the error code? During normal condition or after a cart change?

This info will quite increase the range of solving suggestions!

Error code


and even if you did get rid of error 51 that you have created, you will find that you still cant print in black, original problem is the print head is stuffed probally from dodgy non gen ink running threw it and the fix is to replace head. I don't know who is telling all you brother mfc owners to clean your print head but your paddling up the wrong creek, these heads are electronic deivices that dont take kindly to cleaning, they are not the same as other brands. Re error 51 goto different machine same engine post
