After I scaned and faxed a document from my Brother MFC-240C, I got an error: print unable 4F. I checked the printer that no paper jammed, what's the other issue?


Hi oliver_calga,

You can fix this if you access the internal maintenance mode and do the following:

1.First, press the Menu/Set button.

2.Then press * 2 8 6 4 within 2-3 seconds. This should put you in the maintenance mode menu.

3.Enter 80, and then scroll down with the arrow down 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 error message.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Message "Clean Unable 46" help me


dear friend,

These steps worked in MFC620CN/420CN/410CN/210C/240C and FAX2440C model.

To reset purge counter

1) Enter machine maintenance mode (on MFC240C all four photo/copy/fax/scan lights flash in maintenance mode). Care is needed in maintenance mode, otherwise critical settings may be inadvertently corrupted.

FAX models with numerical keypads: Press the Menu/Set, *, 2, 8, 6 and 4 keys within two seconds. (if you fail to complete the correct key sequence within two seconds, press the Stop key to try again).

Other (non-FAX) models: Press the Menu/Set and Black Start keys. Next press the "up arrow" key four times to enter the maintenance mode).

2) Press the 8 then 0 keys in the initial stage of the maintenance mode to call up the machine's log information list (function code 80).

3) Press the Black Start key several times to scroll through the log information list to reach the purge counter. The purge counter is the 25th item in the list.

4) Press the 2, 7, 8, and 3 keys in this order to reset the purge count to zero.

5) Press the Stop/Exit key to return to the initial stage of the maintenance mode.

6) Press the 9 key twice to return to the standby state.


enjoy & cheers

When i switchon my machiene an error occured Print Unable 52 please get me out of here regards


When trying to use your Brother machine you get the message "Unable to _____". The blank may be the word Change, Print, Scan or Clean and these words may vary from model to model.
This message is a general message and will appear for different reasons. It often indicates a paper jam or a mechanical issue. Complete the following to determine the possible issue.

  1. Check for foreign objects, such as a clip or ripped paper, inside the machine.
    Open the top cover and remove any foreign obstacles from inside the fax machine. If you see jammed paper or another item inside this area, gently pull it out and then close the top cover securely.
  1. If the error continues to appear, the machine may have a mechanical problem.
    If the error message continues to appear, the machine will need to be reset. Resetting the machine will erase all faxes in memory and the Fax Journal Report. However, there is a way to transfer faxes in memory and the Fax Journal Report to another fax machine to print them out. Do the following to transfer the data and reset the machine:
Step1: Transfer the Fax Journal Report
  1. Press Menu/Set on the Control Panel of the machine.
  2. Press the up or down navigation key until MISCELLANEOUS appears on the LCD. Then press Menu/Set.
  3. Press the up or down navigation key until DATA TRANSFER appears on the LCD. Then press Menu/Set.
  4. Press the up or down navigation key until REPORT TRANS. appears on the LCD. Then press Menu/Set.
  5. The LCD will prompt you to enter a fax number. Enter the number of the fax that you want to receive and print the report. Press Fax Start.
Step2: Verify and Transfer faxes in memory
  1. Press Menu/Set on the Control Panel of the machine.
  2. Press the up or down navigation key until MISCELLANEOUS appears on the LCD. Then press Menu/Set.
  3. Press the up or down navigation key until DATA TRANSFER appears on the LCD. Then press Menu/Set.
  4. Press the up or down navigation key until FAX TRANSFER appears on the LCD. Then press Menu/Set.
  5. If there are no faxes saved in memory, NO DATA will appear on the LCD. Continue to Step 3.

    If faxes are present, the LCD will prompt you to enter a fax number. Enter the number of the fax that you want to receive and print the faxes. Press Fax Start.
Step3: Reset the machine
After the Fax Journal Report and faxes in memory are transferred to another fax machine, disconnect the Brother machine from the power source for several minutes and then reconnect it.

If the message continues to appear on the LCD, please contact Brother Customer Service.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy Holidays!
Thanks, Joe

I want to change the name (My caller ID)when I fax how can I do that It show up as Holy Dreams that name of our former company. I want it to show as our new company. How do I do that


I believe you wish to change the "Station ID" on your MFC-240C. This setting will print out your company name and other header info on your faxes:

1) Press the <Menu> key
2) Press <Up> or <Down> Navigate to "Initial Setup"
3) Press <OK>
4) Note: Your station ID is already set, therefore the machine will prompt you to choose: (1) change, or (2) exit without changing - choose (1) to change
5) Enter your fax number, then press <OK>
6) Enter your company name using the dial pad keys. This may take a little practice. Press the dial pad key the correct number of times to produce your desired letter. Use your (>) right navigation key to advance to the next space. If you entered a letter incorrectly and want to change it, press the left navigation key to move the cursor under the incorrect letter.
7) Press <OK> when finished
8) Press <Stop/Exit> to resume normal operation

There! You should have it. I hope this helps!

Date and time is way off on fax header. How do we change it? Brother MFC-240C


While the fax mode light is lit, press menu and scroll down to general setup and enter, the date and time is one of the first settings. If you go to reports and print user settings the print is laid out the same as the menu structure like a roadmap to the different settings.

Screen says CHANGE UNABLE 51.


Follow the instructions listed below:

Error Message Cause Action
Change Unable
XX
The machine has a mechanical
problem.
—OR—
A foreign objects such as a clip or
ripped paper is in the machine.

Open the scanner cover and remove any foreign
objects inside the machine. If the error message
continues, see Transferring your faxes or Fax
Journal report on page 90 before disconnecting
the machine so you will not lose any important
messages. Then, disconnect the machine from
the power for several minutes and then
reconnect it.

Try this and let me know if this helped solve the problem. Binary Bob
