Error 46 what is it
Here is the answer to your MFC code 46
Machine Error 46 - Purged Ink Box Full MFC620CN/420CN/410CN/210C and FAX2440C
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.
When an 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 however.
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.
If 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.
