Hi,
I had this same problem and it is an easy fix.

Lift the lid on your printer and at the back you can see the opening where the print head is.
With the power off, use your finger to move the print head into the middle.
Now feel under the lip of the cover at the front of the gap and you will find a plastic strip that runs from one side to the other. This is the encoding strip and it what the print head uses to read where it is. This encoding strip is easily pushed out of position when a paper jam occurs and all you need to do is to get it back into position. Using both hands use a finger on either side of the print head and lif the encoding strip upwards slightly and towards the back of the printer. This will locate it back into the correct position in the print head when you release. Power back on and the problems will be gone!

Are the settings in the print driver set to the highest quality setting? If so, this will slow the print speed down tremendously. Try changing the default settings in the print driver to a lower quality (or resolution) setting.

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.

Brother MFC-5860CN print unable 51 error message


Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Unable to print 50


The MFC has a mechanical problem, or a foreign object, such as a clip or ripped paper, is in the MFC.
Turn off the MFC's power switch, and then on again. If the error message continues, leave the MFC for several minutes and try it again.
