The 49 error code normally means ambient temperature too low. Is your printer in a very cold location? If so, try taking the printer to a warmer location and leaving for a few hours to warm all the components, then power on and try a nozzle (print quality) test from the maintenance menu.

There's a high possibility the print head or head PCB is faulty, otherwise the Main PCB or the power supply might be faulty too.

Brother mfc465-cn unable to init 49

Error 49 relates to the print head drive voltage. It may just need the flat ribbon cables that connect the head to the main pcb reseating, but equally it may need the print head replacing (most likely).
An outside chance that the main pcb will need replacing.

In theory, all of these jobs are a task for an engineer. Brother UK (0870 830 400) can pass you on to a repair agent.
