SOURCE: 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

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.

SOURCE: brother mfc-440cn has error unable to print 4f

The service manual says it could possibly be a bad Main Board or a power supply problem, but it always turns out to be a broken printhead. If it's under warranty (one year) get to an authorized service center and Brother will cover all the costs except your time and gas. If it's just past warranty, call Brother's customer support and beg. Sometimes they issue work orders for warranty service on machines that are past their warranty.
If it's out of warranty, I'd recommend giving up on it. The parts are expensive, it's time-consuming (expensive), and you can buy a replacement machine pretty cheaply. www.BrotherMall.com lists refurbished, more advanced machines for $90.

MFC-295CN 4F


Error code 4F is caused by a faulty print head or main circuit board.

Neither fault is easy to fix even IF you can find replaecemnt parts.

If you take it to a Brother repair shop, they will no doubt charge you more than a new machine will cost.

Sorry, but your machine is beyond economic repair.
