Unable to init. 4f in Brother MFC j615w


Sorry to say this error refers to a print head failure. It is not a user changeable part. It will need repairing by a Brother service agent and it will probably cost more than the printer is worth.

I have a Brother MFC-3240C which I use for sending, receiving faxes and photocopying. The machine displays " Unable to Print - See Troubleshooting and Maintenance in User guide" I cannot find...


If you leave it long enough it will probably give an error 41 which is the print head at fault. If so then the machine is scrap as its not worth repairing.

My fax mfc3220c say message error 41 when I turn it on. It also say unplug and call brothers


Error 41 means there is a major problem with the printhead, usually
requires a print head replacement. My advice is to take it to a
Brother service centre while it is under warranty. If it's out of
warranty then it is cheaper to purchase a new, non Brother model. If you have been using non-Brother cartridges or refills, they can have too much water in them and it erodes the print head after a while. Usuall y just after warranty has expired!

BROTHER "MFC-3820-CN" TROUBLESHOOTING


You need a new print head.

You could try cleaning the one on there, but all brothers similar to yours are plagued by this problem.

To clean it try:
SWITCH MACHINE ON WHILST HOLDING DOWN MENU/SET KEY, THIS PUTS MACHINE INTO FACTORY SETTINGS MODE.
(MAINTENANCE WILL SHOW ON LCD)
ENTER CODE:84 & WAIT WHILE MACHINE PERFORMS A FORCED CLEANING CYCLE.
(cLEANING WILL SHOW ON DISPLAY)
NOW ENTER CODE:09 & MACHINE WILL PRINT OUT ITS PRINT QUALITY CHECK SHEET.
(IGNORE INSTRUCTIONS PRINTED ON CHECK SHEET)
CHECK QUALITY & REPEAT BY USING CODE:84 IF NEEDED.
(YOU MAY HAVE TO DO THIS SEVERAL TIMES BUT YOU SHOULD SEE A STEADY IMPROVEMENT WITH EACH CLEANING CYCLE)
WHEN FINISHED AND QUALITY IS GOOD, ENTER CODE:99 TO RETURN TO STANDARD MODE.
PRESS MENU/SET 4, THEN MONO FAX START TO PRINT OUT
PRINT QUALITY CHECK SHEET & FOLLOW ON SCREEN INSTRUCTIONS.

Brother MFC 3220c machine error 41


I had the same problem with a Brother MFC3420C after replacing the print head with a new one the same error 41 occured 4 weeks later.

I finally fixed the problem (see photo's) and sent the parts back to Brother :-)

Don't buy Brother Inkjet technology its all ****!.

Their laser technology seems to be much more robust and reliable, have had a Brother HL-1440 since 2004 and its still running well.

Printer problem


It needs a new printhead. I have heard you can find them on ebay. A service center would charge you too much to be feasable. Not because they want to rip you off but because they have to make a profit like any other business.
