Hi,
The main reason of this error is that some paper jam had lifted the long, thin, plastic encoder strip out of its slot inside the printer.
It is making the printer read a false paper jam which is resulting in the error "unable to print".
Removing this error may require a technician.
If your printer is under warranty period, then take it to a Brother repair center.
If you want to remove this error yourself try gently pushing the strip back into the slot when the printer is off.
You might have to use a screwdriver or other thin instrument to get to the strip.
Thanks for using Fixya.
Good Luck and have a nice day.

Hi,

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.

Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

Brother MFC-665 CW with "unable to print 4F" error


My MFC 665CW popped this same "Unable To Print 4F" error recently making the machine fully useless. Just an annoying triple beep and repeat error message to screen when trying to do anything at all with it. I wrote Brother about it. They said to check all through the machine (with a light) for any paper torn off inside, or unwanted foreign objects. This is a good step to do anyway to help maintain the printer. If that is not it, they said it would be a mechanical malfunction. I tried "resetting" by unplugging it for a while as they suggested to no avail. Also while I did find a bit of paper torn off down in my MFC 665 removing it had no effect.

MFC-665CW "unable to print" 50 error


Did you have a paper jam before this happened? If yes then the paper must have pushed the encoder strip out of alignment. You will need to turn off the printer and then push it back into slot to fix it. Let me know if you need more help. Sai.

I have a brother mfc 665cw printer, had a printer jam, cleared the jam and now recieve unable to print 50 error, unable to copy or print. Have found some information about the encoder strip but I have no...


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud
