Question about Brother MFC-5440CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
Printer started producing an ''Unable to Init'' error. I followed powered-up with the menu/set button held and the LCD reports a ''Machine Error 4F''.
What does this code mean and what is the best repair procedure/option?
Access the internal maintenance mode by pressing the Menu/Set button, then press * 2 8 6 4 within 2 seconds. This should put you in the maintenance mode menu. Enter 80, then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key. You'll find an entry listed as purge count. If number is over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.
This will reset the purge count value. Then the printer will restart, hopefully without the annoying cannot clean message.
All I ask is please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
