Default Brother MFC440CN printer - 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.

The first thing I would do would be to check for paper jams and make sure the ink cartridges are full and installed correctly.

Next I would get the newest driver online and uninstall the old one in favor of the new one.

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64
