Help! I can't unpause my Brother MFC-5890 CN printer. It had a paper jam. I switched off my printer to release the paper and when I switched it back on again I get a message saying, 'type the name and password of a user in the "Ipadmin" group. I tried entering what I thought were the correct username and password but that didn't work.


I've shut down my iMac and printer and then restarted them. That hasn't solved the problem either.


I also read very-difficult-to-understand discussions on this issue involving entering 'code' in my Terminal window. That didn't work.


Any pointers simple language!

iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
