    MY PRINTER SAYS UNABLE TO INIT WHEN SWITCHED ON.HAVE TRIED THE MAINTENANCE IDEAS AND GET AN ERROR CODE 4F.

    ACCORDING TO BROTHER IT IS AN INTERNAL FAULT.ANY IDEAS?

    I have the exact same problem as artkoy the EXACT message that comes up is:



    "Unable to init. See troubleshooting and routine maintenance chapter in User's guide."



    There IS no 2 digits at the beginning of the error. Nothing else but what i quoted above comes up. The Brother maintenance and trouble shooting chapter in the user's guide is of no assistance, the only insight offered into the problem is that it is either a mechanical problem or a foreign obstacle (eg. ripped paper) is in the machine.

    I'm not sure how to proceed.

    I've just restarted the computer and printer, unplugged it several times and checked for any obvious obstacles. Nothing changes.

    My printer gives the message Unable to clean read trouble shootinga and routine maintenace chapter in manual.

    I have done this and it only refers to jammed paper or mechanical problem. I have checked for jammed paper (none) how to rectify this problem.



    Thanks Andy

@artkoy:

There is no Error 10 within the maintenance of the printer!
An error starting with 10 (and two more digits) belongs to the communication device (fax).

Plz check again what two digit error you have and post again.

@peter:

you need a new waist ink absorber. plz check the forum for unable to clean or error 46. Its explained many times.

Brother mfc-215c unable to clean?


The ink blotter in the bottom of the machine is full, this is a built-in redundancy. Machine needs to be completely stripped to replace this.

Buy another brand next time.

You can try to press the power button for 30 secs, unplug the power for 10s while holding the power, plug the power back in and wait for 10s then release it.
