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

2 Answers

I have a Brother's MFC-240C printer that keeps giving me a message of - Print Unable 4F See Troubleshooting and Routine Maintenance Chapter in User's Guide. I have tried everything the book says, which is to turn off the printer and turn it back on, then I even unplugged it. It was on my desk for 2 months unplugged and when I plugged it back in it worked for a week. The message is back and now I can't do anything. Help!!!

The manual says that error is either the printhead gone bad or the main logic board. Either will cost more thana new machine. The head alone is over $100.00 and the logic board is twice that amount. I would get a new one and start again with a one year warranty.

Says unable to print 4f, see troubleshooting and routine maintenance. please help.


This is a print head failure of some type. Turn off the printer, disconnect the power cord and lift up the scanner unit. Check for any paper or foreign object. See if you can slide the printhead and check under it. If the printhead will not move easily, do not force it. If the printhead is all the way to the right, you will not be able to move it. Use a flashlight to check for any foreign objects or paper scraps soaked with ink. Remove any foreign stuff that you find.

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.

Unable to print See Troubleshooting and routine maintenance chapt


Open the top cover and hold the interlock switch on the top right hand corner. Power up and wait for the carriage to come to the center. Shine a flashlight all the way to the right and left and pull out the crumpled paper. You should be able to print again..

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
