Hi there
Please try this.
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.

What are printer error messages 4F and 48 on Bother MFC-J430W wireless printer


Error 4F and Error 48.
Actual Message will be:
Unable To Init 4F
Unable To Clean 48

These messages indicate the Waste Ink Tank is full.
This is the space in your machine that will store all the ink that is used in cleaning the printhead. Once this is full the only way to continue printing is reset the Purge Counter and clean out the Waste Ink Station. If you do the reset and not he cleaning of the waste ink station you will eventually end up with the waste ink tank overflowing and leaving a huge mess to clean up. If you clean out the tank but not reset the purge counter it won't work till then.

Unless you are satisfied with your ability to dismantle and reassemble your printer you may want to just replace it as it can take some time and causes alot of mess.

BROTHER MFC 5840cn MACHINE ERROR 4F


Downloaded service & repair manual for brother mfc 5840CW- my unit. Will follow repair directions to check the memory then replace required parts. Will be cheaper and faster than finding a repair shop and paying as much as the macine to fix it! Rip off prices for repairs today on units so they can get you to leave them and buy a new one. Then they fix the unit and sell it "refurbished"- not mine!
Your information on clearing memory, the ink cleaning codes and taping the cartridge from over cleaning was good. Thanks for the help!
