Restarts as I power up

I have MFC 440CN. Whenever I power up it automatically restarts after few seconds. The LCD shows Please Wait... and then a beep sounds after which it restarts. If I keep the scanner cover open or catrodge cover open then LCD starts fine (but wont print. I can see the menu and all stuff but when I close, the unit restarts. Please help.

Did you had lighting strikes the days before?

It seems that the main circuit board has a short ciruit.

If it is still in warranty you should contact brother hotline.

Model LN52A550P3FXZA. Video and audio cycle on and off every 30 seconds or so. When picture switches off, the screen is filled with multi-color horizontal lines.


It is a common problem for this model, the problem is the main board. There are 2 Tantalum capacitors (C102 & C131) 47MF/10V, 1 Passive Voltage regulator KIA7805AF (IC300), 1 Step-Down Power Conveter IC MP2363DN (IC101) need to be replaced. If you do not have soldering skills, just order a new board.

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.

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

I would go first with Brother's support suggestion. You can always go back to the original BIOS setting.
