Replace the waste ink tank and reset purge counter

you have a blocked or faulty printhead/ inksystem, you can print an internal print quality check and do deep head cleans, but in my experience this only helps 10-20% of the time.

deep head cleans use A LOT of ink

if you dont see a big improvment after 2 deep head cleans dont continue as you are just wasting ink

This error is associated with the self test the printer does on the print head during power-up of the printer.

Sadly, it is indicative of either a faulty print head or a faulty main control board, neither of which are easy or inexpensive to replace.

Unless you can get hold of another machine with a different fault and swap over the print head and/or board (you'll need very good skills and tools to do this) then I'm afraid the machine is beyond economic repair*.

* Brother will repair your machine but the cost will likley be more than a new one.
