Must be a friend and a phony problem, that machine doesn't have a printhead you can remove or adhesive on the cartridges, or anything you can clean to improve print quality. I guess the only 2 votes are his own, should also go back to spelling school...

The nozzle may be blocked. So take out the colour cartridge and place its nozzle in a bit of water for about 10 mins. Bring it out and dab the nozzle with folded paper. If the tissue is blotted with the three colour it means you have unblocked the nozzle. Try now to print after returning the colour cartridge. You may need to repeat to get good results.

Thank you!!

I have a problem with "brother DCP-J140W" printer, it shown at the LCD "Init unable 4F" i was thinking the problem must be the printer head, can it be repaired or just replace the head ?

Error 4F means your printhead is RIP, mostly due to bad quality ink, the only one way to fx the printer is changing the printhead but... is that really worth it?
Well, check on or if you can find your part at a good price!
Best Regards

You can still print in black using the 3 colors. See the printer configuration. After a while it will clear up.

Color not printing

Ensure the cartridge(s) are fully seated and locked down. Replace the color cartridge with a Brother Original cartridge. If the problem went away, your old cartridge is either empty or, the printer does not recognize your recycled cartridge. The only other possibility is a clogged print head. You can try to clear it yourself or, take it to your favorite repair shop.
