I have a brother mfc-420cn. I am getting a unable to clean messa


Do you mean "unable to clean"?If it this follow this instruction.
Unplug the printer from power cord.Press and hold the "menu" button, then plug the device.You'll see on the LCD screen a "machine error" code.If this code is 40,41 or 4F the print head is defective.If the error is 50 or 51 there is error in Purge unit and printer require service.If the error is 46 the waste ink tank is full.Follow this:Enter 80, then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key. You'll find an entry listed as purge count. If numberis over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.This will reset the purge count value. Then restart the printer, hopefully without the annoying cannot clean message.

Error-46


Machine error 46 ("Unable to Clean") indicates the wasteink "sponge" as full, which disables the machine's ability to clean. To fix this, you could get the needed part from a Brother parts dealer and enter the servicemode to reset the counters. However, the more reasonable thing to do would be to just change to another machine. You could also have the machine sent to service, but that most likely would not be worth the trouble. The error is pretty common on old Brother inkjets, so it'll come back eventually even if you replace the part. Newer machines should not have this problem.

You need a new waist ink absorber which can be bought as a spare part from a service partner near your home.

When the absorber is replaced you have to do a eeprom reset.

search error 46 which is quite often explained in this forum.

Error message on my Brother MFC-420CN


press menu then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow-up button. Machine will switch to maintaenance mode. You may have to press start bk-copy. The machine will display an error code.

Error code starting with 4 is always a defective print head which needs replacing (except error 46: new waist ink tank needed).

In case it is another error code plz post here again.
