Well I'd download the software (or if you disks use them) and reinstall the drivers. There may be a corrupt file.

Also make sure that the connection is good with your usb.

also make sure in the set up that you have all the right preferences; for example you should not have LPT1 selected if you are using a USB connection.

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
