Wrong!! 4F means your printhead is defect. Probably by 3rd party ink. You'll have to replace the printhead.

Has the same error, power off & on like 10 times, tried internal maintenance mode by pressing the Menu/Set button - it just beeped and repeated same error code. Unplugged it and moved it to another table to continue working on it - and when plugged back it - it worked just fine. Not sure if it was the physical unplugging, something wiggled in the move process or both.

Hi there
With some Brother printers you can try this.

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, and then scroll down with the arrow down (round) 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.


Some times this happens because of using cheap compatible ink cartridges if this is the case change the ink cartridges.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

I have a problem with "brother DCP-J140W" printer, it shown at the LCD "Init unable 4F" i was thinking the problem must be the printer head, can it be repaired or just replace the head ?


Hi
Error 4F means your printhead is RIP, mostly due to bad quality ink, the only one way to fx the printer is changing the printhead but... is that really worth it?
Well, check on ebay.com or isscx.com if you can find your part at a good price!
Best Regards

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.
