Brother MFCJ6510DW UNABLE TO CLEAN 76 Error – How to fix

If you have a Brother MFCJ6510DW (or similar) that has developed the dreaded Unable to Clean 76 error please see pictures below  (easy fix).

Just incase I need to say it. Turn the power off before poking your fingers inside the printer.

Good access/view can be gained from this side of the printer.
I have outlined the encoder strip as it is clear (with fine black lines) and doesn’t photograph well.  It needs to go through the yellow box area between two plastic posts.

In the case of this printer it had jumped over the post closer to the yellow and black tape.

It is a simple case of moving it the yellow boxed area by hand. I didn’t have to use any tools.

Word of warning. The encoder strip can be scratched or damaged. So if you use tools be very careful and avoid metal/object that could deform or scratch like pliers or screw driver.

No covers need to be removed.

Please let me know if this guide helps you or if you have any questions
