Customer Question
Hi Dustin, I have...

Hi Dustin, I have a Brother MFC5890cn, That keeps jamming, also often gives message unable to print. I have to turn it off and restart often to get it to work. also recently it will not print larger messages, if i want to print 5 pages it gets stuck at about 2.5 pages. Is this machine reparable or worth fixing?

Technician's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

The torn off switch doesn't work well i have to unplug to turn off
