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.

You have I am sorry to say a blocked print head. You would have to fit a new one but only a trained engineer could do it as the head is not a separate part and its a pig of a job if you have never done one. Take a tip and take it to the tip and buy a new one. PS, part number is LK2179001

Hello - my Brother DCP 330C printer is printing horizontal faded lines on both color and Black and white copies. I have changed the toner in all areas but still no change. Could the problem be with the...

I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck

Print not working on my brother MFC-665CW

Do you have several attempts showing in your print que? Go to control panel, then printers, the double click on your Brother printer icon. See if there are documents stacked up. If they are, Windows will not send anything to the printer until all documents are printed in order. I hope this fixes your problem. Thanks for using

My printer,scanner and copier started behaving funny when i installed Vista Business. it prints a countless number of pages when a command is given.

Hi again,
I sugest that you download a new driver from here: - you have to join them in order to get the driver, but its free. NOTE, you problem might bee that you have installed a Vista32 driver on a Vista64 computer, please be sure to download and install the right one.

Print faded after replacing black cartridge Brother 240C

The print heads don't appreciate being out of ink so the Brother printer has sensors to prevent that but the tape defeated that prevention. Maybe more cleanings or maybe a cartridge with printhead cleaning solution will help. Otherwise, I fear a new printer.
