    Brother MFC-420CN, LCD reads: Unable to Print. See Troubleshooting & routine maintenance chapter in user's guide."

    I have done so, check for foreign objects, disconnected power, etc., as suggested in user's manual. Unfortunately, the user's manual gives no direction on what to do if these steps fail - which they did. There was NOT a paper jam prior to the error message, just a couple of days lapse in uses. Thanks for any help.

Please tell us what machine do you really have:
Is it a mfc 420cn or a mfc 5460cn?

Did you have a paperjam before getting the error?
This might be due to the paperjam.

Ill try to give you some more help but need more info...

My brother 420cn said unable to print see manual trooble shooting and routine maintenance, but I don't have a manual.


Have you checked at the Brothers web site? I find that they have the product manuals easily available. I have had two Brothers printers. I always lose the manual.

Says unable to print 4f, see troubleshooting and routine maintenance. please help.


This is a print head failure of some type. Turn off the printer, disconnect the power cord and lift up the scanner unit. Check for any paper or foreign object. See if you can slide the printhead and check under it. If the printhead will not move easily, do not force it. If the printhead is all the way to the right, you will not be able to move it. Use a flashlight to check for any foreign objects or paper scraps soaked with ink. Remove any foreign stuff that you find.

I have a MFC-5460CN and it is flashing across the screen "print unable 30 see troubleshooting and routine maintenance chapter in user guide" and we do not have a user guide


The 30 error says the carriage is not moving freely. Look on the extreme right and left with a light and see if there's a paper wad on either side. If you had a paper jam you could have pulled the encoder strip out of the sensor slot on the carriage and may need a shop to repair, but check for paper first.

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
