Make sure the inks are all full, you may need more than one replaced. If all have ink just hold the stop key while you power up and that error should clear.

My Brother DCP 330C says " Unable to print 4F" What does this mean and what can i do to fix it please??...... Thank you Kindest reagrds Milli


Hi millih,

An error coded 4F means that there is a mechanical problem with the printer, usually, "unable to print means one of two things. Firstly an empty cartridge, secondly a full absorbing pad. I am guessing that the latter is not the priblem as the code would be #46, so if the ink cartridges are empty, get them replaced or refilled then disconnect the machine from the power for about 5 minutes, then reconnect and it should reset itself.

Sincerely

Disconnect power for 5 minutes then power up to reset printer, make sure cartridge is secured properly. If it still happens, see my related solution on Error code #46.

I have replaced my empty ink cartrages, but when i have put in the new ones, the screen still comes up with they are empty please replace, how can i solve this problem. this is for a brother dcp-130c


two possibilities, first check to make sure the inks are really there. take the cartridges out and look at the little plastic window on the cartridge and see if you see ink. if you dont, you will need to get a new cartridge again, if you do see the ink, most likely the sensor board is damaged. Usually this damaged because of generic ink.

thanks

Brpther DCP 330c does not recognise new black ink cartridge


Usually there is more than one cartridge empty when you receive this kind of problem. Try opening the top cover and check if the display changes - it should change to specify one (or more) of the color cartridges as empty. That one(s) should be changed too.

Black ink cartridge doesn't work.


Have you tried
  1. Taking out all the cartridges
  2. Power down the power
  3. Power up the printer
  4. Open the scanner Cover
  5. Close the scanner cover
  6. Message will ask you to put the ink.
  7. Put in Black
  8. Close scanner cover
  9. It may ask you whether the Black is being changed.
  10. Open the cover.
  11. Install Cyan.
  12. Repeat step 8-10 for the rest of the 2 colours.
  13. It should resolve the Black ink empty message.
Let us know if this works.

Thank you.

Replacing the cart holder on a Brother MFC 240C


Somethings that have worked for some Brother owners to get cartridges recognised.

1. With your MFC powered up, open it up and remove the cartridge you are having a problem with, then close the MFC, leaving it powered up. It should report that there is no cartridge in the machine.

Still with the MFC powered up, open it up and reinsert the ink cartridge, then close the MFC. It should either ask if you have replaced a cartridge or go into its cleaning mode.

Answer "yes" to "have you replaced cartridge?" and it should either "print" or "clean" and then "print".


2. The cartridge holder in the printer has an "electronic eye" (light sensor) of some type for each cartridge.
Some users have found that putting either permanent marker/sharpie/black PVC tape either on the area of the ink cartridge that goes near the sensor or alternatively putting tape over the sensor itself allows printing to occur.
The problem with this method is that the printer will no longer recognise near-empty cartridges and so will not warn you to replace them and so the print head may be damaged. This is said to work on LC57 icartridges used with the following models: DCP-330C, DCP-350C, DCP-540CN, DCP-560CN, FAX-2480C, MFC-240C, MFC-440CN, MFC-465CN, MFC-665CW, MFC-685CW, MFC-885CW, MFC-3360C, MFC-5460CN, MFC-5860CN.
