"Unable to Print 50" BROTHER MFC-440CN

My BROTHER MFC-440CN printer says, "unable to Print 50" on the screen and even after turning it off (which it wouldn't let me do. I had to unplug it!) it just won't work. It has also said, "Unable to Print 30".

It happened after I canceled a print job and it decided to **** the page up right after it started printing! I had to go in and remove the jammed paper. I turned it on and off again. I Tried canceling all printing projects and nothing! Please help me. I use this printer for my business.

    I had an error code 50, found a small piece of paper to the right of the inside of the machine. After turning it back on, then received error code unable to print 51. Print cartridge now stays to the right side. Have faked it out by changing the purge to 0000. Any other ideas out here???

Congrats! You just bought yourself a brand new printer! I just phoned the company and apparently if you have a teeny tiny paper jam and a Unable to print 50 pops up ... you just bought yourself a new machine, that particular message means your machine was damaged thru the course of your paper jam. The average cost an hour to fix it is $85 so its better to just buy a new one.. What a piece of ****. :-(

MFC-665CW "unable to print" 50 error


Did you have a paper jam before this happened? If yes then the paper must have pushed the encoder strip out of alignment. You will need to turn off the printer and then push it back into slot to fix it. Let me know if you need more help. Sai.
