I have a Brother MFC-440CN printer/fax/copier.  It had a paper jam recently and now is having problems printing.  I cleared the jam; it then printed a couple of pages, then gave me an "Unable to Print 4F" message.  I was able to unplug the printer a few times and it then printed one page, but the same message then reappeared.  It will now not even print one page no matter what I do. It will not execute the "clean" command either.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you.

I would disassemble the easy pieces so that I can see as much as possible. It sounds like the paper jam is not completely cleared.

Keep us posted

Paper jams can do more than just stop paper movement.  If care is not taken when removing jammed paper, sensors can be damaged or mis-aligned.  Some units are sensitive to dust blocking the sensors too.
