I have a DCP-330C and the error message unable to clean 46 comes up


The error message "Print Unable 46" is an indication that the machines ink absorbers are almost full. The ink absorbers hold liquid and dried ink after it has been purged from the print head. These absorbers can control enough ink for the expected life of the machine.

There is a possibility that this message may have occurred in error. Upgrading the firmware of the Brother machine may resolve the issue. Follow the procedure below to determine if a firmware update is required:
-if the display screen is displaying an error message, press the STOP/EXIT key to change the LCD to the main screen.
-press the # and * key at the same time. The first 2 characters on the top row will determine the ROM version.

If the ROM version is OE or greater (example: OF, OG, OH, etc), the firmware does NOT need to be upgraded. If the ROM version is OA, OB, OC or OD, follow the procedure on this link to upgrade the firmware.

If the message "Print Unable 46" continues to appear on the display the Brother machine after completing the firmware upgrade and your machine is within warranty (even if it's not under warranty you have to do the same thing), you have to take it to a Brother Authorized Service Center. http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/us/us/en/faq/faq/000000/002600/000059/faq002659_000.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc290c_all&Cat=11

My Brother DCP 330C says " Unable to print 4F" What does this mean and what can i do to fix it please??...... Thank you Kindest reagrds Milli


Hi millih,

An error coded 4F means that there is a mechanical problem with the printer, usually, "unable to print means one of two things. Firstly an empty cartridge, secondly a full absorbing pad. I am guessing that the latter is not the priblem as the code would be #46, so if the ink cartridges are empty, get them replaced or refilled then disconnect the machine from the power for about 5 minutes, then reconnect and it should reset itself.

Sincerely

This COULD BE that there is some paper stuck in the dcp. Open cover and try to see if there is some paper left in the machine. I ve noticed, that -seeing from behind!- on the right side paperpieces are stuck and disturb the disk (foil) which give the printer info what to do. Open cover and try to look into the edges (seeing from the front: its the left side -where the modell name is printed) In some cases this means that the purgecamshaft is defective.
