SOURCE: how to fix clean unable 46, pls tell me how

This is for the mfc5440 but should work I would really need the cleaning absorber pad replaced but takes a bit of getting to. - 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.

SOURCE: clean unable 46 error on dcp 135c brother printer

the proper reset code sequence to reset DCP printers without numeric keypad should be as follows:

1. press buttons OK, Menu, Mono Start one by one, followed by up arrow key four times. this should all be done as short a time as possible, around 3 seconds.

2. enter maintenance mode 80 by pressing the up/down arrow key and set key to select numbers 8 and 0

3. press blue MONO start button to select PURGE which requires it to be pressed a number of times before PURGE appears on the LCD screen of the printer

4. then use the up'down key and OK button to enter the reset code 2, 7, 8 and 3 keys to reset the counter : Note this does not overwrite the number next to PURGE on the LCD screen but once the last number is added it gets reset to 0000

5. press Stop/Exit key to go to root of maintenance mode

6. enter 9,9 to exit maintenance mode

Clean unable 46


Hi, check to see if there is any foreign object jamming the print mechanism, check all drive belts. If this doesn't show nup any problems, I'm afraid that you have a failure that will require dis-assembly and repair by a company who deals in these printers.
