Ok please 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, 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.


All I ask is 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.

    Getting there! Now shows machine error 46 I have seen this one before. I think it is a saturated ink pad that needs replacing, so will check that out.

Unable to init. 4f in Brother MFC j615w


Sorry to say this error refers to a print head failure. It is not a user changeable part. It will need repairing by a Brother service agent and it will probably cost more than the printer is worth.
