MFC-440CN keeps restarting

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.) The printer is a stand-alone. IT is not connected to my computer. Please help.

    The URL provided requires my machine to be connected to the Internet. How can I have the machine connected to the Internet when I say the unit restarts by itself whenever I close the Scanner Cover. Is there a place where I can download the firmware file completely to my computer and then upload it on to the machine ?

    Hi there,

    I tried as per the suggestion. But the detection said that the firmware I currently have in the machine is already the latest one and no upgrade is needed.
    Also this restarting did not happen because of any lightning strike due to bad weather. It all started with a paper (glossy paper) jam which I believe was removed hastily from the machine.
    Please help.

Did you had bad weather with lighting strikes the days before you noticed that the machine behaves that strange? If yes, the pcb is defective due to micro eloectronic short circuit! You cant fix that by yourself. You need a new pcb which costs as much as a new mfc! Sorry!

This could be a firmware error. try to do a firmware update by downloading the firmware tool: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/dlf/download_top.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc440cn_all If it doesnt work, please write again here.

    You have to download a file then run the programm. the machine should be connected to your pc, of course.

    So if you have it stand-alone, install the usb-driver first on your laptop or pc. Connect the mfc by plug-in usb. wait until pc/laptop has found printer. afterwards run the file (update firmware). the firmware will be updated.

    When finished, unplug mfc from usb and use it standalone again.

    ...and the pc/laptop should be online when doing the firmware update for connecting to the brother server....

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.

I have a brother MFC 440CN printer and it shows a message that says : unable to print 4F


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.

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

I need to know how to reset my printer, I 've cleaned the pads, but nothing... Thank you in advance...


Power down the Canon Pixma IP4300. Once it has shut down, leave it off for a few moments.
Hold down both the "Resume" button and the "Power Button." When the printer begins to restart, release the "Resume" button but continue pressing "Power."
Push in the "Resume" button twice, then let go of both the buttons. In a moment, a green light flashes a few times.
Press the "Resume" button four times once the green flashing has finished.
Push the "Power" button again until the printer shuts down. Wait a few seconds, then press the power button again to restart the device. The Canon Pixma IP4300 will now function properly. for more information http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/printer/67824 hope this helps you.
