Question about Brother MFC 210C All-In-One InkJet Printer
It says unable to print 50
I had this same problem and it is an easy fix. It is similar on all brother printers but mine was a 5860CN.
Lift the lid on your printer and at the back you can see the opening where the print head is.
With the power off, use your finger to move the print head into the middle.
Now feel under the lip of the cover at the front of the gap and you will find a plastic strip that runs from one side to the other. This is the encoding strip and it what the print head uses to read where it is. This encoding strip is easily pushed out of position when a paper jam occurs and all you need to do is to get it back into position. Using both hands use a finger on either side of the print head and lift the encoding strip upwards slightly and move slightly towards the back of the printer. This will locate it back into the correct position in the print head when you release. You can feel this with your fingers. Power back on and the problems will be gone!
Remember and be gentle so as not to damage the encoder strip!

The paper jam you had probably lifted the long, thin, plastic encoder
strip out of its slot. It is making the printer think paper is still
jammed. Try gently pushing the strip back into the slot. You might
have to use a screwdriver or other thin instrument to get to the strip.
Be sure printer is off when you do this.
Hope that helps.

this is a complex machine, without its documentation it would be very hard to figure out, so the install and setup guide is available from brother, its available here
and here is the units operator manual, this will take you to it.
following the install guide is pretty straight forward and should result in a satisfactory setup.
