Downloaded service & repair manual for brother mfc 5840CW- my unit. Will follow repair directions to check the memory then replace required parts. Will be cheaper and faster than finding a repair shop and paying as much as the macine to fix it! Rip off prices for repairs today on units so they can get you to leave them and buy a new one. Then they fix the unit and sell it "refurbished"- not mine!
Your information on clearing memory, the ink cleaning codes and taping the cartridge from over cleaning was good. Thanks for the help!

Brother MFC-5840CN Will not print and message say's, "Unable to clean. See chapter in user guide". I don't see anything that can fix this problem. I have been successful in the past with turning it off and...


Inside the machine is a large plastic box packed with felt pads. The machine cleans its printheads by squirting ink through all the nozzles to blast them clear, then pumps that used ink into the Ink Absorber Box. When it calculates the the box is getting full, it puts up the message you reported. The box (Brother part number LF4818001) is a fairly cheap part, but getting to it is kind of complicated. Instructions for the nearly-identical model 5440 are here. Two other options worth considering are finding a local servicer on brother's website, or replacing the machine.

Brother MFC-665 CW with "unable to print 4F" error


My MFC 665CW popped this same "Unable To Print 4F" error recently making the machine fully useless. Just an annoying triple beep and repeat error message to screen when trying to do anything at all with it. I wrote Brother about it. They said to check all through the machine (with a light) for any paper torn off inside, or unwanted foreign objects. This is a good step to do anyway to help maintain the printer. If that is not it, they said it would be a mechanical malfunction. I tried "resetting" by unplugging it for a while as they suggested to no avail. Also while I did find a bit of paper torn off down in my MFC 665 removing it had no effect.

Unable to clean message in brother dcp-115c aio


I saw on this site codes for another MFC to clear memory and reset the cleaning unit count code to zero. It worked on two of my brother mfc 820cw units. The third mfc 5840cn had unable to print error message 46- nothing at Brother. they want you to take everything to a repair shop.they don't help at all. Then the error went to 4F when I tried toclear the memory.As Iunderstand that message- it means I have to replace the printer head. Have no clue where or what it is. But I can read a manual as well as anyone and follow directions to fix it! Can't be worse than it is now! Good luck
