Question about Brother DCP-330C All-In-One InkJet Printer
I'm afraid there is no simple solution to this problem.
Error codes 50 and 51 refer to problems with the purging mechanism - some of the whirring and clicking noises you hear when the machine self cleans or starts up are it purging ink from the print head. Through some very clever mechanics, the machine uses the paper feed motor (running in the opposite direction to normal) to perform purging.
Possible causes listed in the Brother Service Manual for this error code range from "simple" things like a misaligned cam, to complex problems with the main control board. However, whatever it is, dismantling these machines isn't staright forward and parts are very diffciult to obtain and very, very expensive, so much so that 99 times out of a 100, it isn't cost effective to repair.
You could approach a Brother service agent, but it's highly probably that they will charge you more than buying an equivalent brand new machine.
