I think error 34 is print head related. I've had the same problem with my 240c but was able to fix it. I took the printer apart to access the print head. It is rather easy to take apart so I won't post a how-to on that. I noticed that the print head was getting kind of stuck on the right side. First, I cleaned the tracts, metal and plastic parts that come with contact with the print head. Then, I lubricated these parts using WD-40. A Q-tip works well for all of this. This resulted in a smoother movement of the print head and solved the problem. I can you can or should use gear grease but I love WD-40.

Troubleshot 46 on mfc-240c


Error code 46 means that your ink absorber pad needs to be replaced. According to Brother, only an engineer can do that, but you can get more information from them by contacting Brother support:

http://www.brother-usa.com/Support/

Click on "Send us an Email" and tell them your printer's model number, the error code, and whether or not your machine is covered by a warranty.

How do I clean printer drum. Printer is not working. Message on the display says to clean printer drum and to see manual. There's nothing in the manual on cleaning printer drumfor the MFC 240c all-in-one...


Hi you can try
This works with most Brother printers

Procedure how to reset the error 46 error (unable to clean). This can be done on every Brother inkjet machine with a numeric keypad.

- Machine off
- Switch on the machine while holding down the “menu” button until all the leds are flashing on/off. Now you are in “maintenance” mode.
- press 80
- press the “mono start” button several times until you see “purge: xxxx”
- press “2783” in order to reset the purge counter. You will see: “purge:0000”
- press “99” to exit the maintenance mode

Now you are able to print again, but actually your ink absorber box is now full with ink. Ink flooding can happen if you don’t replace this ink box


Also can try.

Reset code.
Press menu then*2864 within 2 seconds (maint should be on the display and all the lights should be flashing, if not try again) press 80
then keep pressing black/mono start button until screen displays ‘purge count’
press 2783 to reset purge count
press stop/exit key
press 99
machine should return to normal

Brother MFC 240C clear Machine Error 46, IT HAS REPLACEMENT OF PAD INK, BUT STILL HAS THIS ERROR, HOW CAN I DELETED FROM SCREEN??


In order to resolve the issue we try to resetting purge counter:

1) Enter machine maintenance mode (on MFC210C all four photo/copy/fax/scan lights flash in maintenance mode). Care is needed in maintenance mode, otherwise critical settings may be inadvertently corrupted.

Press the Menu/Set, *, 2, 8, 6 and 4 keys within two seconds. (if you fail to complete the correct key sequence within two seconds, press the Stop key to try again).

2) Press the 8 then 0 keys in the initial stage of the maintenance mode to call up the machine's log information list (function code 80).

3) Press the Black Start key several times to scroll through the log information list to reach the purge counter. The purge counter is the 25th item in the list.

4) Press the 2, 7, 8, and 3 keys in this order to reset the purge count to zero.

5) Press the Stop/Exit key to return to the initial stage of the maintenance mode.

6) Press the 9 key twice to return to the standby state.


This will resolve the issue.
