No Good News On This One Im Afraid

The Print Heads MUST BE REPLACED with a new one.

the ceramic nozzles have become faulty and defective

It might actually be more advisable to purchase a new printer as the Print Heads are quite expensive to purchase

What i would do is to go to device manager and see if it listed there and then i would right click on it and look for removal of this device then i would click ok and confirm removal of the device then i would exit out of that and reboot once the computer is up and running the new hardware found wil show up in the task bar and it will install the drivers for you and hopefully this will take care of the problem ok please let me know how this is going ok and please rate this for me ok best regards mike

The User's Guide is a large file, and when printed, about 4 GB of spool files are generated when using the default settings. Follow one of the workarounds to print the User's Guide. Workaround 1 Download and install Adobe (R) Acrobat (R) Reader v 5.0, then print the User's Guide in Low Memory Mode. (See instructions below.) This will result in only about 321 MB of spool files being generated. Printing in Low Memory Mode:

  1. Click Start , Settings , and Printers .
  2. Right-click the HP Deskjet 990C Series .
  3. Click Properties .
  4. Click Advanced .
  5. Click to place a checkmark in the Low Memory Mode box.
  6. Click Details .
  7. Click Spool Settings .
  8. Click Print Directly to the Printer .
  9. Click OK , then click OK again.
  10. Try printing the User's Guide.
Workaround 2: Use the current printer driver for the Deskjet 895C to print the User's Guide. Using this printer driver, however, will not allow you to use the auto duplexer. Following the full instructions below will allow you to print the User's Guide with the HP Deskjet 895C printer driver, then switch back to the HP Deskjet 990C printer driver afterwards.
  1. Click here to go to the Web page for downloading the current HP Deskjet 895 driver . Follow the instructions on that page for installing it.
  2. Print the User's Guide.
  3. Click Start , Settings , and Printers .
  4. Right-click the HP Deskjet 990C Series .
  5. Click Set As Default .
  6. Close the Printers window.

Hope this may help;

Regards,
VOTIT

Try this one:
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 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.
Hope that helps........

    4F means that the purge unit is broken and that there is a problem with printhead, so since that trick did not work a print head replacement will solve this problem..

Print unable 4F refers to a fault in the printhead. If the machine is less than two years old you may be able to get it replaced under Brothers warranty extensions. They have a history with their print heads.

Troubleshooting : unable 4f cant print


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.
