    Was working wonderfully and then got error message "Unable to change. " I shut it down and turned it back on and got a message that black ink was low...then same "Unable to change" message came back on. I changed black ink but nothing helps...just get "unable to change. See user's manual trouble shooting and routine maintenance guide". Any suggestions?

    You did not say that in the first instance.
    Never the less if you are able install it on a computer with the software correctly installed and attempt to use it there- We are trying to run a check.
    When using as a stand alone of course the 'printer' will only print something that has been scanned
    i/e being used as a 'copier'
    or to view/print photographs from media cards
    Therefore a more comprehensive explanation of what you are trying/expecting the device to do would be useful.

    All you have to do is to give full detail- so far you failed to do so.

  • Anonymous Sep 04, 2007

    this could be a cartridge problem or if the model is so equipped - waste ink tank full.
    An alternatice site to check this out is- www.fixyourownprinter.com
    But please have comprehensive deyail available.

  • Anonymous Sep 04, 2007

    OK then try your luck with fixyourownprinter there is a section there that deal with brother.
    By the way does the manual - either the paper one or the one the the software disk cover this type of error?

After power on mfc directly press menu then start mono then 4x arrow-up button. mfc goes to maintenance and beeps permanetly. What error code does the display show up?

Posted on Sep 12, 2007

    This error shows up often after a paper jam. You have to disassemble the printer to see if there are paperpieces left inside the machine. The second job is to adjust the encoder strip at the right place on top of the printhead. Paper sometimes ejects (lift it out of position) the strip. This very simple to do :-)

My printer MFC-240C displayng "Print unable 51"

These errors are usually caused by small (~15mm2) paper scraps being stuck under the print head,
on the maintenance (purge) unit or at the flushing box.

check the left and right end of the carraige area, you may need to turn it on, and plug it quickly, so you can manually move the printhead.

Brother 130c print unable 50

Solution #1 is absolutely spot-on from adnanbhatti, copy the link into your browser to be able to see the photos of the printer and how to slide the print head:
http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/us/us/en/faq/faq/000000/000500/000065/faq000565_013.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=dcp130c_all&Cat=11

When I slid the print head over as specified, I found a little crumpled paper fragment soaked with ink. Pulled it out.... I turned on the printer, it ran a cleaning cycle automatically, and started printing just fine!
