Hello,

This is quite unfortunate, but there are few things you can do, remove the cartridges on the printer, power off the printer, check the inner part to see if there are still pieces of paper left inside, turn the printer upside down and check very well to ensure there are no papers traces on the printer roller or any part of the printer.

Put back the cartridge and power on, if it is still same problem, power off the printer and power on back, while the printer is warming up or loading, pull out the plug from the AC wall and wait a while before putting the plugging the printer back, this hard reset on the printer, it should fix the problem.

If with all this, the is still not solve, i will advice you return the printer to the dealer to fix, since it is still under warranty, that will even put your mind at rest, because, it may be mechanism problem.

Take care.

Error code 5100


Hi You can Try 2 things.

ERROR 5100 means that there is some foreign object blocking your cartridges carriage that disables it from moving. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there



Next try.

It may be a piece of paper or a scotch tape or a staple wire.
Solution 1:
Clean the timing strip.

Solution 2:
The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .

Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.


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.

Brother MFC-9420CN Paper Jam Error message w/ loud grinding noiz


please try this

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Will not print / cartridges will not move back and forth


I had this happen to me the other night and I had to restart the printer to get the print job out of the que. You could try that.

While it's restarting, unplug the power cord and the usb cable. That should reset it.

Try to see if there're any Paper Pieces left while you were removing the rest of them. If you find there any, remove then retry. If this fails, contact the Service Center.

PAPER JAM THAT REALLY DOESN'T EXIST


make sure the back cover (black panel) is fully closed. If it is, remove the panel and shake gently to make sure nothing has fallen inside.
