Customer Question

I have a Brother MFC 8950 DW. the green data light keeps blinking, and the error message says I'm out of paper in the MP tray. Well of course. I have a whole ream of paper in the M1 tray, but this isn't being recognized.
JA: Is your Brother printer displaying the error on all print jobs, even after you restart it?
Customer: yes. I went through TWO HOURS of tech support, with a woman whose third language (maybe) was english. I can't go that route again. I printed a couple of things this morning just fine, and then this happened again.
JA: When did you last update the printer driver software?
Customer: Well, I haven't. How do I do that?
JA: The Printer Technician will be able to walk you through that. Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No. I just want this fixed. Tax season is coming up. Make sure the person who calls SPEAKS ENGLISH.
