HEllo, i get a Unable to Clean error on my mfc-5440cn, i tried to put the power down for about 1hours and back up, still nothing . can you help me ?


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

All I ask is come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Unable to change. 4F


Hi there
With some Brother printers you can try this.

Access the internal maintenance mode by pressing the Menu/Set button, then press * 2 8 6 4 within 2 seconds. This should put you in the maintenance mode menu. Enter 80, and then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key. You'll find an entry listed as purge count. If number is over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.

This will reset the purge count value. Then the printer will restart, hopefully without the annoying cannot clean message.


Some times this happens because of using cheap compatible ink cartridges if this is the case change the ink cartridges.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

LCD shows figure "7" no matter what button I press


Your control panel has gone bad, or you have a stuck key.

Make sure all your keys move freely. If theyp're good, call your local service centre and get the price for a key keyboard assy. They're not expensive and are fairly easy to replace.

Will not print shows power on but when you try to shut it down by the power off it would not shut down. unpluged it and now there is nothing happen. when this first happen I let it sit for about three...


Let me guess: your mfc is about 2.5 years old.
Had a lot of mfc which wont power on because of a bad capacitor.
Thanks to saving policies of brother! Cheap materials which wont last more than 3 years.
This cant be fixed. What you can try is to buy a 2nd hand mfc 5440cn or a 5840cn with a bad printhead and change the main pcb.

Brother MFC-5440CN Printer Problem


If this only happens when you are copying.

1. Your scanner glass is dirty. Open the lid, use windex to clean the flatbed. Look on the left side. You should see a strip of glass, with the scanner sitting under it. This strip is used when the document feed is being used. Make sure it is clean. Most common problem is getting a little whiteout or the sticky residue from scotch tape on this glass, which causes lines down your copies.

Clean it with alcohol which will dissolve the sticky stuff and the whiteout.

If this does not solve the problem, the CCD scanner in your machine might be going bad.
