Getting the same message, unable to clean, followed directions in the book for troubleshooting and it still does not work. intellifax 2440C...

Remove the paper tray and shake all excess debris from it. Open all ports on the copier and rotate all cogs {gear wheels} by hand and watch for the smallest piece of paper in each corner. Get a can of compressed air and spray simultaneously as you spin the wheels. Make sure to unplug the unit before reaching inside to rotate gears. Turn copier upside down and shake any loose debris out. Close covers and replace paper tray. Plug in and try again.

Message: Unable to Clean

machine error 46 means that your printer's purge unit has reached its counter limit and needs replacing, the reason i say this is because your machine has done alot of work and parts will be warn in your m/c, if you just reset the counter you will end up with ink througout your machine, normally when your printer is up for a purge unit its better to get a new machine with new cartridges and a 12 month warranty and no wear.
