machine counts all purge (cleaning) operations in order to prevent the
internal ink absorber box from overflowing with purged ink. An
“initial purge”, for example, advances the purge
counter by 187 + 420 = 607. When the purge counter approaches 6400, an
internal "Machine Error 46" is generated. Further purge operations are
prohibited, and therefore the printer becomes unuseable.
internal Machine Error 46 is generated, the user will see an
“Unable to Clean” external message and will be
unable to use the printer. The “Unable to Clean”
external message can relate to many different internal error codes
The user can establish the internal Machine Error Code
as follows: pull the mains cable out of the machine (power off), hold
down the Menu/Set key, re-insert the mains cable into the machine
(power on). The internal Machine Error Code will be displayed.
there is a Machine Error 46, it is necessary to dismantle the printer,
replace the ink absorber box (or possibly break the ink absorber box
open and clean its absorbent sponges under a tap), re-assemble the
printer and reset the purge counter to zero.
