Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
That machine seems to have a poltergeist in it. Have you tried a hard reset and uninstalling/reinstalling driver? If after all that you continue to have issues then something is drastically fubar with unit electronics.
I would contact tech services at Brother - they are generally very responsive and helpful - perhaps they can help you further with your dilemma.

if the message refers to the scanner, open the cover of the feeding unit on top of the printer and clean it with compressed air. Most probably an insect got stuck somewhere

I could not find a MFC-260C but did find drivers for the 240C and the 290C.Both are available below. One of them should work.

Have you tried to stop the spooler service in services?
Click on start orb
Type in search window:
Scroll down to Print spooler service and click on it in the right side window.
On the left side click stop the service and wait forthe process to stop .Do not close the window yet. You will have to restart it here later.
next delete the print job in the printer queue then restart the spooler service
Resubmit your new print job.
If that doesn't clear it, the next step would be to stop the spooler
service as stated above
Go into windows explorer
(Print job data is collected and stored in a spool file in the spooler folder.)
It is located in:
Your print job will show 2 files there Example below:
Delete the files located in there. There may be several of them depending apon how many print jobs you submitted. You will have to resubmit your print jobs all over again.
Next go back to services window and restart the spooler service
That will definitely fix it.
