Ok

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, hopefully without the annoying cannot clean message.


All I ask is 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.

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!

4F Error


rendilo, sorry , no good news: The printhead or purgeunit is in disorder. The whole unit has to be replaced. If you want to keep the printer you can try this and fix by your own: http://www.fixya.com/support/t202870-broken_feeder_arm The cost for repair by service will be more thasn a new printer ;-)
