you need a new waist ink absorber box from a service partner which can be found at brother homepage of you country.
After replacing the box you have to do a reset.

search error 46 or unable to clean here in the forum. it has been written many times.

SOURCE: New HL-5240 printer red status light upon powering up

My HL-5240 did the same thing, Here is what I found:

Look at the back of the printer. Pull down the back cover. Look to the right and the left of the exposed internals of the printer and there should be another handle/knob you can pull down. Pull these both down simultaneously and check to make sure there isn't a piece of paper in there! This was a shock to me! My office printer was held up for days until I found this hidden door in the back! I felt like an idiot that it was from a stupid paper jam!

SOURCE: Printer unable to clean

the printer has a counter for the supposed amount of ink the absorber pad can absorb.

i have reset the counter using the following and now it works. In theory you need to get a replacement pad but i haven't been able to find one yet. My printer is now working fine

following is the solution to reset the counter for the old fault

Brother DCP-115C printer unable to init.


Here's what the manual states in the troubleshooting section:


Unable to Change
Unable to Clean
Unable to Init
Unable to Print
Unable to Scan

The machine has a mechanical problem.
-OR-
A foreign obstacle such as a clip or ripped
paper is in the machine.
Open the scanner cover and remove
any foreign obstacles inside the
machine. If the error message
continues, disconnect the machine
from the power source for several
minutes then reconnect it.

Tip

DCP-340CW MACHINE ERROR 46 the Photo Capture and red exclamation mark lights...


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 <the up arrow> four times, the Photo Capture and RedExclamation Lights will then flash.

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.

Red will not print after cleaning several times


There may be a problem with the printer's mechanism, electronics, or even the software. You should probably contact the company, and explain the situation. Presuming you have an internet connection, they may be able to correct the software via your computer, over the internet. You'll just have to allow the company access to your machine.

My DCP-115C printer was missing red colour.


Yellow is one of the colours used to produce a shade of red.

I don't know how but ther must be a way to print a test page to see if the print heads need cleaning I've never used a brother.
