Brother DCP-115c 'Unable to Clean'

I have seen your advice on changing the ink absorber box.

Can you tell me where it is located and how i can remove and replace. Then can you tell me the reset codes.

Thanks

Michael

Printer keeps saying can t clean ink


Procedure how to reset the error 46 error (unable to clean). This can be done on every Brother inkjet machine with a numeric keypad.

- Machine off
- Switch on the machine while holding down the “menu”button until all the leds are flashing on/off. Now you are in “maintenance” mode.
- press 80
- press the “mono start” button several times until you see “purge: xxxx”
- press “2783” in order to reset the purge counter. You will see: “purge:0000”
- press the "stop" button.
- press “99” to exit the maintenance mode.

Now you are able to print again, but actually your ink absorber box is now full with ink. Ink flooding can happen if you don’t replace this ink box!

Unable to clean see troubleshooting and routine maintenace chapter in user guide. Do not have user guide to hand.


Unable to clean means the ink absorber box is full. You will need a shop to replace the waste ink absorber box and then reset the waste counter in service mode.

MY MFC 5840CN ERROR MESSAGE READS "UNABLE TO CLEAN" DOES NOT APPEAR TO HAVE ANYTHING JAMMED OR STUCK INSIDE. WHAT DO I DO?


That error means the ink absorber box is full, no more room for waste ink. There are instructions on this site to reset, but best to have the box replaced at a shop and reset. The whole job about $80.00
