    You can't solve this Error by yourself why it's an Hardware-Error. Only the Suport can repair this It's an Error whith the Print-Head (Connection-Cable) to your Machine. This Part must change with new one.

I have printer brother mfc-440cn. On lcd all the time unable print mesage 4f. WHAT is the selusion


4F message indicates that the printhead is dead, you will need to replace it to make it work again. Before you replace it, you may want to try this, see if it will remove the clean unable error message: 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.

Print Brother Mfc-290c Error Print unable 4F


Hi there
With some Brother printers you can try this.

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, and 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.


Some times this happens because of using cheap compatible ink cartridges if this is the case change the ink cartridges.

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.

Iger the error message on an NFC 440CN brother unable to initialize 4F. I read somewhere that the print head is damaged. Can I repair it myself and if so how?


4F is a printhead issue, however there are the rules per Brother International...

... only a Brother ASC can order parts!

A Brother ASC can opt to sell you the part at their discression, however it voids the part warranty because it is not being installed by an authorized service center. The average cost of a printhead replacement varies by ASC, usually $100 or more.

You can find your local ASC by clicking here.
