    Are you sure that your unit is an MFC425? The closest match that I could find is the MFC-420CN.

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.

MY BROTHER PRINTER 4F


Hi Anonymous.

The 4F error is related to a failed printhead.
In the case of this new printer coming up with a 4F error it can be one of two things.
1) The printer had a faulty printhead straight out of box. Not common but can happen.
2) You have pushed your printer too hard. Normally Brother Inkjet printers are not designed to handle 2000 page print jobs (That is 4 reams of paper) most inkjet printers don't even have close to enough ink to do this sort of print job. You may have just blown the printhead up through overuse.

MFC-295CN 4F


Error code 4F is caused by a faulty print head or main circuit board.

Neither fault is easy to fix even IF you can find replaecemnt parts.

If you take it to a Brother repair shop, they will no doubt charge you more than a new machine will cost.

Sorry, but your machine is beyond economic repair.

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!
