Printer won't work

Printer message showing "unable to clean - refer to manual".  I can't find any solution to this problem. This just showed up one day. Message is there constantly. Printer has hardly been used although, typically it is out of guarantee by a few days!

Re: printer won't work

Contact brother and ask them if they will change the waistinktank (which has to be replaced by a new one) though your are near the edge of guarantee. Actually bother is very kind of doing so.

I unable to copy, it keep showing ink absorbers is full

Under your printer's print head, there is a compartment built to take up excess ink during normal operating. That message indicate that the compartment is full of waste ink. If you are good at fixing things , you can clean that bin, otherwise refer it to a service centre for cleaning.

Here's a link to the user manual.

According to the message, there is debris in the printer such as a paperclip or torn paper. Clear this debris from the printer and it should clear the message. Refer to page 107 of the document.

1. Unplug your printer
2. press down the menu/set then plug it (just keep oh pressing it down until you see the message error 46 show up on LCD)
3. press 80
4. then look for "Purge", i think its on the 25th when you scroll down
5. then reset the pruge count to "0" by pressing 2 7 8 3
6. then press stop/exit
7. then press 9 twice

Sure, the printer wont print because the waistinktank is fed up!

You have to buy a new waistinktank from a service partner which can be found at the brother homepage of your country. When you have replaced the tank you have to do a reset within the eeprom.
(You need a new one for a few bugs because you cant clean the old one)
Post here again when you've got it!
