Personally I answer questions for free, so your your little chantage ( that is a French word, look it up!) has to incidence on my mood. If you feel like it, you can try to post the question as a free question and some good samaritan like me will try to answer it. You may have a correct answer that solves your problem and it will not cost you a farthing, maybe a bit of gratitude when you take the time to write a short thank you note.

Yes it is a wireless printer as well.

For further details kindly refer to the manual. You can download one from here.

Concerned, Nooh.

Yes, you can do that. But you will have to install the software on your laptop to be able to connect it wirelessly. You will need to download drivers. If you need help with that, let me know and I will lead you through it.

The error means you have a paper jam or one of the sensors is incorrectly reading a paper jam. Unplug the unit and check all areas for a jam. Remove the back Jam Clear Cover and check inside there. Remove the Paper Tray and check that area and check if the PE actuator is in place behind the paper tray. Lift the scanner flatbed unit and check inside the print carriage area. Look for scraps of paper at the sides of the platen. These scraps that may be soaked with ink and difficult to see. You may need to move the print head to see both sides.

If the PE actuator is missing, contact Brother for a replacement. Put in the replacement if needed.

Close the scanner unit, replace the clear jam cover (put it on correctly) and replace the paper tray. Plug in and turn on the printer and see if the message clears. If it doesn't clear, access the Ink or Ink Management menu (either directly by a single key or through the menus). Do a test print for Print Quality (Color). If the quality is good, press 1, the up arrow or + key to select Yes. Then press the Stop/Exit button. If the print quality is poor, clean the print head.

If the jam message occurs again, check for more scraps of paper inside the unit as above. Make sure your paper meets the specifications for the printer and isn't getting excessively humid. (Paper will pick up moisture from the atmosphere so keep only the needed amount in open reams or the paper tray.) Fan the paper in the tray and then return it to the paper tray. Make sure the paper is flat in the tray and that the guides are just touching the edge of the paper.

If it still doesn't clear, the unit needs service.

I hope this helps.

Check flatcable connection to main circuit board:

Open cover and release the "Z" cover (right side) which hides the flatcable. Simply stick the cable to mainboard.

I would recommend downloading Open Office, then test printing from there. It will print like Microsoft word for you and then you will see if it is your Office the problem.
