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:

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!

I quote this from the official Brother website.
"Howdo I clear the message Unable to..." ( "Unable to Change" "Unable toClean" "Unable to Init" "Unable to Print" "Unable to Scan" )? Description:
Themessage "Unable to -" ( "Unable to Change" "Unable to Clean" "Unable toInit" "Unable to Print" "Unable to Scan" ) is a general message and mayappear for different reasons.
To clear the message, you need to disconnect the Brother machine from the power outlet to check the machine.

Follow the steps listed below:

  1. Check for foreign objects, such as a paper clip or scrap of paper, inside the machine.
    Disconnectthe machine from the power outlet and open the scanner cover by pullingup on the lower right corner of the cover. Look inside the machine andremove any foreign objects. If you see jammed paper or another iteminside this area, gently pull it out and then close the scanner coversecurely.

  2. If the error continues to appear, move the print head and examine under the print head.

Solutions to Fix Brother Printer Error Code 76:-
Solution 1:- Change the Fuser
The Error Code 76 in your Brother printers is also related to fuser error, so you need to change the fuser, but first just in case try to reset settings to factory defaults.
Solution 2:- Change or Update the IP Address
The other solution is that is to change the IP Address. For this you have need to do right click on your printer, click "Properties", then click the "Ports tab" then hit on your Brother printer and then click on "Configure port: (or you can delete the existing one and then add another one).
Furthermore, if you want to do is update the IP Address, you can. But the problem is that the Brother Printer doesn't have a static IP address, it's dynamic. If you want to confirm that, then go to your Brother Printer and press the "Reports" button and then print out the network configuration report. Now your IP address will show on that. It's actually the last digit in the IP address that changes. This will absolutely solve your problem.

Not printing

Sure. Its a new common problem of brother printers. The paperjam lifted the encoder strip (a foil strip) out of position. The encoder strip gives positioninfo to the printhead. You have to disassemble the printer and simply fix the encoder strip in its position upon the printhead. To avoid this prob in future stick a 3cm tape with a 1cm plastic strip in the middle onto the position where the encoder strip runs thru the printhead. The plastic foil avoids a sticking contact of the encoder strip.
