These mean the machine does not work due to a paper jam or some sensor problem. try to clear the paper jam. If the problem still continues after clearing the paper jam, try to clean the encoder strip (clear strip of plastic) located behind the head.

We are getting an error code 70 - unable to print. We just replaced each of the ink cartridges.


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If you are facing the error code 70 on brother printer it usually means
the printer does not work due to a paper jam or some sensor problem. It also may be due to dirty encoder strip or may be the encoder strip is out of position.
To solve this problem:
Remove the top cover and check inside for any possible piece of paper or dirt on the right or left most part of the carriage that is preventing it from moving. Clean it very carefully and turned on the printer, if still error code exist then
clean the encoder strip behind the printer head and if it is out of position,fix it on right position.Your problem will be solved.

For further assistance, I am here to help.
I hope this solution helps you
Thank you for using FixYa!

Printer' LCD: print unable 70. How to repair ir?


The machine has a mechanical

problem.

-OR-

A foreign object such as a clip or
ripped paper is in the machine.


Open the scanner cover and look on the left,

middle and right hand side under the covers for

foreign objects and paper scraps. Then, disconnect the

machine from the power for several minutes and
then reconnect it.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Dear all here i am anil kumar from india i have MFC brother printer DCP-195C but i have facing problem when i print the page the printer show print unable error 70 please solve my problem thanks...


Error 70 normally is a paper jam or something else that is stopping your print head moving correctly.

Open the covers, have a look, and after clearing the jam you must power off and on the machine.

- Dirty encoder strip

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

- Mechanical malfunction


The most common cause of this issue is dirt on the encoder strip.

Paper jam. caused error print unable 30


"Machine Error 30" (or "Unable to Print") indicates either a simple problem such as a paper or part of a paper stuck inside the machine, which of course is solved by opening the machine as much as possible and remove the reason for the jam.
Even a ripped part of a paper will be able to cause the paper, so it's important to be careful when taking jammed paper out to not rip the paper (do this by carefully pulling the paper among the same way as it would go when printing, not the opposite direction).

However, if that doesn't work, the error is mechanical (but still most likely caused by the jam, either a sensor getting dirty and unable to do it's work, or actually getting broken), and there isn't much you can do. If the message comes back right after turning on the machine, you'll have to have service performed on the machine.

Error code print unable 5A on a Brother HL4070CDW


On most printers that are manufactured today have an error chip built onto the motherboard of the printer. If your printer experiences an error. It will register it on on the chip. You will continue getting the error because it needs to be cancelled. To cancel this error follow the instructions below:
1) Turn print on
2) Unplug the printer from the power
3) Wait at least 70 seconds
4) Plug it back in
The error should be cancelled

From Brother's website:
Print Unable ##:
Turn off the printer. Wait a few seconds, then turn it on again. If this does not clear the
problem, call your dealer or a Brother Customer Service.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

  • Never - no fax confirmation sheets
  • Every Error - default setting
  • Send Error - a fax confirmation prints when the fax transmission encounters an error
  • Every Fax - a fax confirmation sheet will print for incoming and outgoing faxes
  • If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
