Question about Brother MFC-5890CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
This happens when the selected paper type is not supported, I don't mean you might have selected the wrong paper type, but it's possible that the machine itself has a faulty selecting the paper type. In most cases, this happens when you print a transparency paper type on plain paper. Try a print on a transparent type paper, or on a photo paper or on a plastic coated paper. If it prints fine on other paper type without changing the paper type, then you need to try with different paper type on plain paper.
Let me know the outcomes.
