"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 ****. :-(

How do I replace the pf kit on a brother mfc-9325cw. I have the replacement parts.


Laura, you get the necessary tools, get access and remove the old parts and replace with new ones. Make sense?

HOW DO I un-lock the scanner on a Brother MFC 7420?


Unfortunately, the MFC-7420 doesn't have a physical lock switch. You need to turn off the all-in-one and wait for the unit to clear its memory. If the error recurs after you press the power button again, wait 30 minutes and try again. (Note: you will lose any faxes that are in memory. See the User Guide page 11-5 to save this information.) You can find the manual on the Brother support page for the MFC-7420: https://www.brother-usa.com/support/ModelInfo.aspx?R3ModelID=MFC7420 . Click on the Manuals & Documents tab. Then click on the Manuals on our Online Solution Center for the English version of the manual. The direct link to the User Guide is currently: http://download.brother.com/welcome/doc000387/ALLFB_UsaEngUsr_B.pdf .

You can also try unplugging the all-in-one for several minutes to reset the error codes. If the error persists, contact Brother if the MFC-7420 is still under warranty (1 year). If it isn't under warranty, consider replacing the unit. The repair costs may be unreasonable.

I hope this helps.

Laser printer makes light clicking noise when idle


When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.

Problem installing drivers for HP 4355 printer in vista 32bit OS


Vista OEM Cd usually doesnt come with drivers.

Printer should have come with its own cd which contains both the software & drivers.

If it didn't come with any
You can try using windows update
or
downloading drivers from hp site

Printer won't recognize cartridge


I had the same problem. I'm not sure but I think I replaced the cartridges when the printer was on because I turned the printer off and removed one of the cartridges. When I turned the printer back on it recognized that cartridge but not the others. I turned the printer off again, rmoved all cartiridges and put them back in when the printer was still off. When I turned the printer on again I had no problems. So...try turning off the printer, rmove all cartridges, then put them back in and restart printer. Hope this works for you .

Samsung kicked out hp 3in 1 printer already installed


Don't have your HP designated as the default printer (if possible)when you hook up the Samsung. When the Samsung is hooked up it sees the HP is the default printer. Well it can't have that, they discard the HP drivers. What does Samsung care about HP drivers theres only one printer port setup and thats the USB port you have them sharing. So yes you need to get a second cable. Tim
