DCP-J125 Uable to print (36)


The message Unable to Print (followed by a two character code) will appear on the display for one of the following reasons:

- Dirty encoder strip

- Foreign object, such as a paper clip or ripped piece of paper, stuck in the machine

- Mechanical malfunction

The most common cause of the issue is dirt on the encoder strip. Clean the encoder strip by doing the following:



CLEAN THE ENCODER STRIP

NOTE: The images shown below are from the representative product. The customer's model may look different from the picture.

1. Locate a lint free cloth such as a T-shirt, DRY eye glass cleaner cloth, DRY monitor cloth or wash cloth.

DO NOT USE ANY TYPE OF PAPER PRODUCTS (EX: paper towel, tissue paper, napkin, filter, news paper etc.) This will help ensure the dirt is removed from the encoder strip.

CHECK FOR FOREIGN OBJECTS & PAPER JAMS

2. After thoroughly cleaning the encoder strip, look inside the machine and in the two corners for jammed paper or foreign objects and remove them if any are found. Pieces of paper may be jammed under the print head.

If the print head is locked to the right side of the machine, press and hold the STOP/EXIT key for 5 seconds. This will cause the print head to move automatically to the middle of the machine and allow you to look for debris in the right corner.

3. Leave the scanner OPEN and turn the machine around so you are looking at the back of the machine.

4. Open the Jam Clear Cover and look inside the machine for paper. Remove any jammed paper that appears; then close the Jam Clear Cover and turn the machine back around to the front.

5. Gently close the scanner cover and verify the error message cleared from the display.

If you cleaned the encoder strip ONCE and the message continues to appear on the display, clean the encoder strip again. It is common to clean the encoder strip multiple times to resolve the issue.

If you cleaned the encoder strip at least TWICE and the message continues to appear on the display, unplug the machine from the power outlet for 2 seconds and plug it back in to cycle the power.

TEST THE MACHINE

NOTE: After a paper jam has been cleared, the Brother machine may complete a 2 minute cleaning cycle to remove paper dust from the nozzles before printing.

Unable to Clean 5A


The machine does not work due to a paper jam or some sensor problem.
Clear the paper jam, try to clean the sensor on the top of the printhead.

My brother printer model is mfc-685cw. i checked paper jam but my lcd screen say unable to print 50. I am unable to shut down also.Then i switch of my printer after one hour i started but again i saw same...


If there is no direct symptom of paper jam and still you cannot do printing properly, find whether it is because of drum problem. If the paper gets into the end gear of the rotating drum and gets stuck there, you cannot access the printing function. Switch off your printer and check the plastic arms of the printer drum. If there is any paper piece jammed in any of the arms, you can't continue printing. Here also cleaning is the best method to solve the problem. While cleaning, check the arms of the rotating drum.
