Question about Brother MFC-5460CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
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.

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"
"Piezoelectric ceramic actuator defective (Cracks or rare short)"
"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. Sorry.

You really should mention the brand and model of the printer, but from the message, I'm guessing this is a Brother inkjet machine. If so, the Init Unable message means that either the printhead is unable to go back and forth, or it can, but the machine doesn't know it can. The most common causes are:
