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

Iger the error message on an NFC 440CN brother unable to initialize 4F. I read somewhere that the print head is damaged. Can I repair it myself and if so how?


4F is a printhead issue, however there are the rules per Brother International...

... only a Brother ASC can order parts!

A Brother ASC can opt to sell you the part at their discression, however it voids the part warranty because it is not being installed by an authorized service center. The average cost of a printhead replacement varies by ASC, usually $100 or more.

You can find your local ASC by clicking here.

Brother MFC-665 CW with "unable to print 4F" error


My MFC 665CW popped this same "Unable To Print 4F" error recently making the machine fully useless. Just an annoying triple beep and repeat error message to screen when trying to do anything at all with it. I wrote Brother about it. They said to check all through the machine (with a light) for any paper torn off inside, or unwanted foreign objects. This is a good step to do anyway to help maintain the printer. If that is not it, they said it would be a mechanical malfunction. I tried "resetting" by unplugging it for a while as they suggested to no avail. Also while I did find a bit of paper torn off down in my MFC 665 removing it had no effect.
