Brother MFC-410CN Ink Jet Problem

My machine is saying Unable to Print - see troubleshooting and routine maintenance in user guide. I have checked the user guide, and followed the factory reset instruction..by unplugging the usb cable and going into the menu and following the factory reset options.. but the machine still wont allow me to print!... Any ideas.. or the machine is going out of the window! Thanks

Please push menu button then start mono then 4x arrow up. Display should be ||maintenance|| and printer should beep. What error code does the display show up?

    Error 41 means that the printhead is broken. It has to be replaced by a new one.

    It depends...
    If you can get a cheap 2.hand dcp 110c with a troublefree printhead (broken scanner glas) at eBay, you can use this printhead without probs.

    A new one costs more than a new dcp 330c (est. 90 EUR or 80$).

    BTW: Its better to buy a new mfc 440cn/465cn (LC 1000 / LC 57 Cartridges) because the printhead is a lot better designed (more trouble-free) with better printquality and faster printouts.

I have a Brother all-in-one printer MFC 420CN and it displays unable to clean...see troubleshooting and routine maintenance in user's guide. Itried turning off and back on but it does not reset...


Try this and see if it works... It works for my Brother MFC-6490CW and I am sure the same process probably will apply to your machine. If it doesn't contact customer service and let them know you need to know how to Power Purge your machine. Good Luck!

Hold down the menu key. While still holding the menu key, unplug the machine and plug it back in. Do not let go of the key until the machine reboots and the screen says "maintenence". Hit the following keys: 7, 6, 4,black start. The machine will then go into "power purge" or deep clean mode for about 5-7 minutes. When complete hit: 99 to get out of maintanence and reboot. Be sure to have extra ink cartidges on hand as it does use up a lot of ink but this process works the best every time when the printer wont print

Problem with my printer Brother MFC-240C "Print unable 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, 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,
try this step by step.without missing any thing. thanks

Will not print


I have the same error message “Check the Troubleshooting and Routine Maintenance Chapter in User's Guide" I called customer service for "BROTHER 1-800-284-4329 USA; 1-877-BROTHER for CANADA. The Tech’s and I performed a series of diagnostic test, via the phone but were unable to solve the problem... Brother seem to believe that I have a defected printer head, Brother referred me to a local authorize service agent for Brother. I do have my User's Guide and there is no additional information that I was able to use to resolve this problem. HOW EVER, I am able to get the machine to print by opening the cover and close it as if I had installed ink, or removed a paper jam “SIMPLY OPEN AND CLOSE THE COVER”. I also vacuumed and blew the insides and the outside buttons of the machine with forced air from my vacuum, after all that I still have the same problem. My solution...buy a new machine mine is 32 months old and I probably have ran 15k or more print, fax, and copy jobs.
Some times we need to know when to move on, TIME IS MONEY AND TIME WASTED IS UN-REFUNDABLE.
GOOD LUCK
