Open it all back up. open the front doors, back doors, side doors, fax input lid. look carefully Most of the time a little piece of torn paper is the problem.

DCP-J125 Uable to print (36)


The message Unable to Print (followed by a two character code) will appear on the display for one of the following reasons:

- Dirty encoder strip

- Foreign object, such as a paper clip or ripped piece of paper, stuck in the machine

- Mechanical malfunction

The most common cause of the issue is dirt on the encoder strip. Clean the encoder strip by doing the following:



CLEAN THE ENCODER STRIP

NOTE: The images shown below are from the representative product. The customer's model may look different from the picture.

1. Locate a lint free cloth such as a T-shirt, DRY eye glass cleaner cloth, DRY monitor cloth or wash cloth.

DO NOT USE ANY TYPE OF PAPER PRODUCTS (EX: paper towel, tissue paper, napkin, filter, news paper etc.) This will help ensure the dirt is removed from the encoder strip.

CHECK FOR FOREIGN OBJECTS & PAPER JAMS

2. After thoroughly cleaning the encoder strip, look inside the machine and in the two corners for jammed paper or foreign objects and remove them if any are found. Pieces of paper may be jammed under the print head.

If the print head is locked to the right side of the machine, press and hold the STOP/EXIT key for 5 seconds. This will cause the print head to move automatically to the middle of the machine and allow you to look for debris in the right corner.

3. Leave the scanner OPEN and turn the machine around so you are looking at the back of the machine.

4. Open the Jam Clear Cover and look inside the machine for paper. Remove any jammed paper that appears; then close the Jam Clear Cover and turn the machine back around to the front.

5. Gently close the scanner cover and verify the error message cleared from the display.

If you cleaned the encoder strip ONCE and the message continues to appear on the display, clean the encoder strip again. It is common to clean the encoder strip multiple times to resolve the issue.

If you cleaned the encoder strip at least TWICE and the message continues to appear on the display, unplug the machine from the power outlet for 2 seconds and plug it back in to cycle the power.

TEST THE MACHINE

NOTE: After a paper jam has been cleared, the Brother machine may complete a 2 minute cleaning cycle to remove paper dust from the nozzles before printing.

Message unable to print 50


Machine Error 50 either means that there is a loose object inside the machine (usually piece of paper), or that there is a mechanical error which would need you to have the machine sent to service.

This message is a general message and will appear for different reasons. It often indicates a paper jam or a mechanical issue. Complete the following to determine the possible issue.

1.
Check for foreign objects, such as a clip or ripped paper, inside the machine.
Open the scanner cover by pulling up on the lower right corner of the cover. Look inside the machine and remove any foreign objects. If you see jammed paper or another item inside this area, gently pull it out and then close the scanner cover securely.

2. If the error continues to appear, the machine may have a mechanical problem.
If the error message continues to appear, the machine will need to be reset. Resetting the machine will erase all faxes in memory and the Fax Journal Report.

Unable to print properly keeps printing on one line


Sounds like there is something jammed in the paper feeder, or maby its the paper feeder itself. Check to see if the path the paper follows through the feeder is completely clear. Sometimes paper is left in the feeder from previous paper jams.
