Default Help with Brother Multifunction Printer MFC440CN - Error code 51


Hopefully someone will help. A friend of mine is receiving an error message on his Brother MFC440CN printer: " Unable to change 51". By the way, he can scan, send and receive faxes, but he cannot print. I tried to search this one and couldn't really find anything.
If someone has any comments or suggestions how to solve this issue, it would be very much appreciated.

Try download the manual from Brother's Website for that printer. Sadly, error codes on printers and MFC are very model and manufacturer specific.

Main Rig - AMD FX-8350x8 4.0Ghz CPU, 4x 8Gb (32Gb) DDR3 Ram, Gigabyte GA-970A-D3, GeForce GT 970 4Gb, 1x 256Gb SSD\8Tb (3+2+2+1) SATA HDD, DVDRW, SB X-Fi, Win 10 (64-bit)
Asus N61JV-JX231V - Intel Core i5 3437u (1.9 - 2.4 GHz), 12GB, 640GB, 16" Display, nVidia 325M 1Gb, DVD-RW, Win 10 (64-bit)
