This is the Brother definition of error code 4F:
"The head drive voltage has dropped from the high to low level in an abnormally short period." or "The head drive voltage has not risen to the specified level within the specified period in the self-diagnosis"
Causes:
"Piezoelectric ceramic actuator defective (Cracks or rare short)"
or
"Main PCB defective"
No simple fix I'm afraid. You could contact a Brother repair agent but I expect they will want to charge you more than a new machine.

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.

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.

I have a similar problem, nothing stuck in the printer. It needs a new print head (costs more than a new printer).
