Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Clean unable 46


This is very common on Brother MFCs - they self clean excessively and when they've done a set number of self-cleans, they refuse to print and give the error message you quote.

There is a work around - you can reset the self-clean counter - but this carries a small risk the waste ink from cleaning that is normally stored insde the machine in a tank/sponge MAY leak out. I've done the work around on my Brother MFC and, so far, no leakage so if I were you I'd take a punt.
Just Google "brother mfc unable to clean" and somewhere in the results will be how to reset the counter - it's all done from the keyboard so no tools required.

Trouble shooting and routine maintenance


46 means the ink absorber box is full, it only costs around $10.00 to replace but you need to get into service mode to reset the counter. I'm not allowed to give out that info...

My Brother MFC-C


I have the same problem as amira58 - the machine keeps telling me it's unable to clean, therefore I am unable to use my printer which is mfc-215c.
Can you advise how I fix this problem ??, especially with the price of a new colour printer now below $100 - is it worth my taking it to a techno to get it fixed (printer is about 4 years old). Look forward to your response. Ahi Allen
