    Mine says "unable to print" all the time. (possibly down to cheap ink cartridges??)



    Also says the same when trying to clean.



    Turning off them on, followed by opening the body then shutting it (less than gently) usually fixes it for one print run.



    If that doesnt work, removing then refitting the ink cartridges, followed by the above seems to work.



    It will print fine until its finished the job or jobs, but once there is a gap in the printing, its back to "unable to print" & I have to go through the whole sequence again.



    Obviously this is not a fix, but works for me until I find a solution.

    Just tried the updated firmware to see if that helped & now its showing "unable to init" & gives error 41 which is the print head stuffed.



    How come it was printing OK half an hour ago but now wont print at all.



    THis is on a 2 year old printer which has done very little work - my last printer lasted more than 12 years & was second hand when I got it !!



    Certainly wont get a Brother again - its never worked fully from new but the feachers that didnt work were not important to me

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

Will not print


I have the same error message “Check the Troubleshooting and Routine Maintenance Chapter in User's Guide" I called customer service for "BROTHER 1-800-284-4329 USA; 1-877-BROTHER for CANADA. The Tech’s and I performed a series of diagnostic test, via the phone but were unable to solve the problem... Brother seem to believe that I have a defected printer head, Brother referred me to a local authorize service agent for Brother. I do have my User's Guide and there is no additional information that I was able to use to resolve this problem. HOW EVER, I am able to get the machine to print by opening the cover and close it as if I had installed ink, or removed a paper jam “SIMPLY OPEN AND CLOSE THE COVER”. I also vacuumed and blew the insides and the outside buttons of the machine with forced air from my vacuum, after all that I still have the same problem. My solution...buy a new machine mine is 32 months old and I probably have ran 15k or more print, fax, and copy jobs.
Some times we need to know when to move on, TIME IS MONEY AND TIME WASTED IS UN-REFUNDABLE.
GOOD LUCK
