Question about Brother MFC 240C All-In-One InkJet Printer
Will not print ;will not clean head
ERROR 51: PAPER SENSOR TRIPPED WITHOUT OTHER INDICATIONS OF A PAPER JAM
This problem can happen because of following reasons:
1. There is some piece of paper / paper clip / sticker stuck inside printer and you are not able to access it. In this case you need to turn off printer, then turn it upside down and shake it few times. Then try to start it normally. If still not working then you need to open it up as much you can to see if something is stuck
2. The electric sensor which receives signal from the mechanical paper sensor to detect jam has issues. Either there is dust on it or its gone bad and needs replacement. You should first open up the printer and blow air in it to remove all dust.
If it doesn't work then this repair unfortunately will cost you much more than buying a new Printer. You will have to contact the manufacturer, or utilize the warranty repair service.
