Question about Brother MFC 240C All-In-One InkJet Printer

Print Unable 4F

I have a MFC-240C Fax/Copy Machine. I am receiving the error of Print Unable 4F. I tried the instructions that were posted for the other person about going into the maintenance area and checking the purge count. My purge count was less than 6000 so it didn't fix the problem when I put in 2783. Is there something else I should try?

The most common cause is jammed or shredded paper. Check for tiny pieces of paper throughout. Hope this helps.

Unable to init. 4f in Brother MFC j615w


Sorry to say this error refers to a print head failure. It is not a user changeable part. It will need repairing by a Brother service agent and it will probably cost more than the printer is worth.

I get the following message "Print unable 4F" on my MFC-240c. The printer will not print or copy anything. I opened up the printer and I did not see anything unusual.


This is the Brother definition of error code 4F:
"The head drive voltage has dropped from the high to low level in an abnormally short period." or "The head drive voltage has not risen to the specified level within the specified period in the self-diagnosis"
Causes:
"Piezoelectric ceramic actuator defective (Cracks or rare short)"
or
"Main PCB defective"
No simple fix I'm afraid. You could contact a Brother repair agent but I expect they will want to charge you more than a new machine. Sorry.

Printer unable 4F-what does this mean?


If still under warranty, I would call Brother for an RMA (return merchandise authorization) code and return the product. Why fiddle with it?

Error 4f mean the head drive voltage has dropped from the high to low level in an abnormally short period.This mean your printer need new print head.This will cost you just as a new printer, then think about new printer.

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

Message unable to print 50


Machine Error 50 either means that there is a loose object inside the machine (usually piece of paper), or that there is a mechanical error which would need you to have the machine sent to service.
