Question about Brother MultiFunction Center MFC-440CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
I own a MFC-665CW. How do I clear the "unable to print" 50 error?
What exactly do you mean by move the encoder strip back into place? where can it go? as far as i can tell the encoder strip is locked onto the head and cant be moved either way without moving the head, thats how its made. the idea behind that strip is to tell the printer where the head is by the markings on that strip. so i cant understand how it can be out of position in the first place? the gears that drive it are spring loaded so it will just slip rather than than change places on the head, again this is made so it will always be able to know where it is even if it slips it cannot change its position on the head. its more likely to have a speck of dirt or ink splatter on it and thats throwing the sensors reading off. please explain how im incorrect in my thinking.
i have a error 50 and error 30 after a paper jam, it was the first page i tried to print using my comp, i was copying without my comp just fine, then it never worked after i carefully removed the piece of paper that was partially printed but never made past the outfeed of the carriage. i have inspected everything and found the head was not moving freely, i lubed it and got it to move. but now when the head is full left it is not fully engaging the gears from the lever on the left. the gears are in front of the head on the left front corner of the carriage area. i hear a gear slipping sound 2 times, after the 2nd short slip it then moves 1 inch to center and error 50.
when i solve it ill report back with pictures.
