Error 76 is fuser error, you need to change the fuser but first just in case try to reset settings to factory defaults.

No need for part necessarily
SkipperOz solution pasted below

MFC-5440CN saved from the tip!
"Unable to Clean" message - found TrickyDicky's sltn 4 for various printers.
Went into maint mode as per sltn 4 - verified error 46.
"The user can establish the internal Machine Error Code as follows: pull the mains cable out of the machine (power off), hold down the Menu/Set key, re-insert the mains cable into the machine (power on). The internal Machine Error Code will be displayed."

Keyed in 80 - stepped through the items with "down" key and located Purge Counter.
"Press the 2, 7, 8, and 3 keys in this order to reset the purge count to zero
Press the Stop/Exit key to return to the initial stage of the maintenance mode.
Press the 9 key twice to return to the standby state."


This worked brilliantly - no need to tamper with any parts of the printer. Purge Counter reset did it all. Fully functional printer.

Thanks TrickyDicky for info on verifying the error code and purge reset

Machine error 50 is a error in Purge unit.You can't fix it by yourself and your printer need service.In most case the cost of repair is more than cost of new printer.

Usually this is caused by a foreign object or debris under the printhead path, or under where the printhead "parks."

Unplug the machine. Open the cover. Check the printhead path for little bits of paper, push pins, paperclips, staples etc. Note the location of the printhead.

If the printhead is at the far left, gently slide it towards the center (do not force it). Look carefully under where the printhead was stopped for debris. Use a flashlight if necessary.

Close the cover. Plug in the unit. Try again.

Hi there
With some Brother printers you can 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, and 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.


Some times this happens because of using cheap compatible ink cartridges if this is the case change the ink cartridges.

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.

What are printer error messages 4F and 48 on Bother MFC-J430W wireless printer


Error 4F and Error 48.
Actual Message will be:
Unable To Init 4F
Unable To Clean 48

These messages indicate the Waste Ink Tank is full.
This is the space in your machine that will store all the ink that is used in cleaning the printhead. Once this is full the only way to continue printing is reset the Purge Counter and clean out the Waste Ink Station. If you do the reset and not he cleaning of the waste ink station you will eventually end up with the waste ink tank overflowing and leaving a huge mess to clean up. If you clean out the tank but not reset the purge counter it won't work till then.

Unless you are satisfied with your ability to dismantle and reassemble your printer you may want to just replace it as it can take some time and causes alot of mess.

Brother MFC j430W. How do I correct machine error 48?


The print head circuit or cable is malfunctioning or faulty. Replace the printer. I would suggest the Brother MFC-j450dw/j470dw printer as it is an upgraded and newer version of the j430w. Good luck!
