Tip & How-To about Brother DCP-340CW All-In-One InkJet Printer
Clean the ink overflow pads you will have to almost take the printer to bits, they are underneath the print head dock position, these cost about £25
In the mean time you can RESET this purge count back to zero using theMAINTENANCE 80 menu, to continue using the printer for a while untilyou get the new pads. But it on a tray as if they are full they maystart to leak onto your desk....
1 . Press (MENU) (MONO START)then (^) OR
2. Press (^) eight times until you see <8> then press (SET)
3. Press (^) twice until you see <0> then press (SET)
You will now be in MAINTENANCE 80.
4.Press the (MONO START) its a toggle until you see PURGE:6451 ( I guessthis means you have cleaned the heads over 6,450 times their thresholdlevel.) you will need to enter the code <2783> to RESET it.
5. Press (^) twice until you see < 2 > then press (SET)
5. Press (^) eight times until you see < 7 > then press (SET)
5. Press (^) nine times until you see < 8 > then press (SET)
5. Press (^) four times until you see < 3 > then press (SET)
The Printer will beep then reset counter will be at ZERO <0000000>
Its the PURGE that will increment by a variable amount each time youclean the print heads the amount will be between 100 and 130. When thiscount gets to about 64,000 the error 46 will occur. That's about 510times you can clean the heads before the pads need cleaning.
Almost forget to EXIT the Maintenance mode enter 9 twice by using theup arrow & set key's to exit from maintenance mode in the same wayas entering the 2783 code, or power down the printer.
