Looked in printer for debris and considering on getting canned air to blow out the dust. Otherwise, checked the ink and all the recommended places for a paperjam. I'm hoping my last resort doesn't result in a mechanical problem. When turning it off/on (encouraging it to go thru its normal pre-use warm-up---meaning it sounds like parts are moving) it doesn't make any abnormal sound. Nor did it just before this problem. Like the printer a lot. BTW, it's been in use for about 19 months. Thanks.

The messages unable to print, unable to clean, unable 36, error 46 and error 32 are all print head errors.
1. Remove all the ink cartridges from the machine 2. Clean the contacts on the cartridges as well as inside the machine itself with a small amount of warm water or alcohol on a cotton swab until no ink comes off on the swab.
Note: if any of the other cartridges are low, empty, leaking or bulging replace them
3. Then turn off the machine and unplug it for 70 seconds 4. Plug it back it and wait for the insert cartridges message 5. Insert the cartridges and check to see if the problem is still there. If it is it means the print head has failed and in order to fix this the print head inside the printer needs to be replaced. The print head is the part of the printer that puts ink from the cartridges onto the page
Unfortunately this can sometimes cost more to replace then the machine itself.
The error message 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.
This error means that there is something obstructing the printing process. Check inside your printer through the gears that you can see under the lid. There should be something obstructing the gears such as dirt or other small debris. Check VERY thoroughly with a flashlight.
Get "canned air" at any computer or office supply store and blow the inside of the printer out as much as possible. Invariably, the debris will loosen up and come out.
Try this clean the head of the printer, through the menus on the servicing the printer. If that doesn't work take a compress air can, and becareful of not get the liquid stuff into the printer, by holding it straight blow it into the printer. It could be as simple as paper dust or dust on the head itself.
If the error message is only "magenta/cyan low", it doesn't cause any error. The low message stays after replacing ink cartridges if they're replaced too early (before they're indicated as actually empty), it doesn't cause the printer to not work.
However, some other problem might be faulty, or there might be another error message. Try emptying printer queue and print from Ink Management -> Menu/set (twice) to check wether the problem is with communication from pc or if the printer actually is unable to print.
IssueAn 0xc18xxxxx or 0xc19xxxxx ink system error code displays on the front panel. The printer cannot copy, receive faxes, or print. Solution Press the On button to turn the printer off. Unplug the power cord from the back of the printer. Remove all the ink cartridges. Wait two minutes. Plug the power cord into the back of the printer. Press the On button to turn the printer on. Install the ink cartridges when prompted. If the error code does not display, the issue is resolved. If the 0xc18xxxxx or 0xc19xxxxx ink system error code displays on the front panel, service the printer.
The waistinktank has to be replaced.
DO NOT only reset the code but change the waistinktank!
Otherwise ink will flow into the machine and will cause serious damages!!!!!!!!
See link how to do that:
