Says unable to print 4f, see troubleshooting and routine maintenance. please help.


This is a print head failure of some type. Turn off the printer, disconnect the power cord and lift up the scanner unit. Check for any paper or foreign object. See if you can slide the printhead and check under it. If the printhead will not move easily, do not force it. If the printhead is all the way to the right, you will not be able to move it. Use a flashlight to check for any foreign objects or paper scraps soaked with ink. Remove any foreign stuff that you find.

May be you should have the printer checked by a qualified technician.
I guess that when you aunt removed the paper, she did it by applying excessive force causing damage to the printer mechanic.

I have a MFC-5460CN and it is flashing across the screen "print unable 30 see troubleshooting and routine maintenance chapter in user guide" and we do not have a user guide


The 30 error says the carriage is not moving freely. Look on the extreme right and left with a light and see if there's a paper wad on either side. If you had a paper jam you could have pulled the encoder strip out of the sensor slot on the carriage and may need a shop to repair, but check for paper first.

its possible your encoder strip came off of the printhead assembly.

you will need to check by taking off the scanner assembly, then the upper cover.

look at the encoder strip and see if its in the groove of the printhead.
