I had the "Clean Unable 51" error code and saw a bunch of different solutions. First, I tried the purge solution to no avail. Then, I read that something is probably caught somewhere or that pulling paper out from a paper jam could've misaligned a gear. So, I pulled out the paper tray, opened the cover, and the back piece to investigate. Nothing.
But, I noticed that every time I opened the cover or the ink cover, it would reset and try and print the document again. I did this about 4 times, and still it said clean unable 51. But on the fifth time, it printed! It seems that every time it attempted to print, it got a little further. I suspect dust buildup or something to that effect. good luck

How do i fix a / clean unable -51 code on my MFC-240C printer ?


you cant clean
Inside the printer behind the cartridge carrier is an ink absorber. This devise is used to clean the excess ink from the prinheads after printing. THe unable to clean 50 is an indication that the absorber is full and needs to be replaced. It must be changed and cannot just be cleaned. You can order one from Brother and the instructions for replacing it are in the package with the new one. Until this is changed the printer will not operate.

I have a Brother mfc-240c - will not print yellow


The print head is clogged.If not unclogging with cleaning process may you try to clean manualy.You need to dissasembly the hole printer to remove the print head.Put it in hot water.If you don't have a technical skills, don't try anything.
If not help just buy new printer, because the new print head will cost you as much more.

Machine Error 51


More than likely you have a bad printhead, if its under warranty brother will pay to have it fixed, otherwise just play baseball with it and buy another one

Problem with my printer Brother MFC-240C "Print unable 4F"


Access the internal maintenance mode by pressing the Menu/Set button, then press * 2 8 6 4 within 2 seconds. This should put you in the maintenance mode menu. Enter 80, then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key. You'll find an entry listed as purge count. If number is over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.

This will reset the purge count value. Then the printer will restart,
try this step by step.without missing any thing. thanks

What is 'print unable 51' never had a paper jam!


Do the following:

Print Unable
XX
The machine has a mechanical
problem.
—OR—
A foreign objects such as a clip or
ripped paper is in the machine.

Open the scanner cover and remove any foreign
objects inside the machine. ( You might try cleaning the scanner glass.)
If the error message continues, disconnect the machine from
the power for several minutes and then reconnect it.

Try this and let me know what happens. Binary Bob
