Question about Brother MFC Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

I work in a medical office and we need to clear the overall memory on our Brother MFC 8890DW printer.

The printer is running very slow and we would like to clear the memory and see if that helps it to run faster.

SOURCE: "brother mfc 7840w printer goes offline and i cannot print need turn printer on and off.

The solution, and it took me a long time to find the simple solution, is to right click on your printer, click properties, click the ports tab and click on your Brother printer and click on configure port (or you can delete the existing one and then add another one). What you want to do is update the IP Address. The problem is that the printer does not have a static IP address, it is dynamic. If you want to confirm that, go to your printer and press the reports button and print out the network configuration report. Your IP address will show on that. It's really the last digit in the IP address that changes. This will absolutely solve your problem. Good Luck!

SOURCE: error 46 in brother mfc-440cn

Machine Error 46 ("Unable to Clean") indicates that the wasteink is full. Basicly it gives you two options - have it replaced (a semi-complicated performance which requires buying a spare part and change it yourself) or have it sent to service. If you do not have any warranty on the machine, the more suitable would probably be to just replace the machine instead, since it's relatively cheap compared to both service costs and having the wasteink replaced, but you instead get a full new warranty on your new machine.
Unfortunately, there's nothing you yourself can do to remove this error, without actually changing an item inside the machine.

SOURCE: our Brother MFC 9440CN laser printer memory, keeps

When Fax Storage is set to On, copies of all received faxes are stored in the memory, thus using up a portion of the memory available for other functions.

The Fax Storage feature is utilized for Fax Forwarding, Fax Paging and Remote Retrieval. If you do not need these features, verify that Fax Storage is set to Off by doing the following:

  1. Press the Menu key on the control panel.
  2. Press the Up or Down Arrow key until Fax appears on the LCD. Then, press OK.
  3. Press the Up or Down Arrow key until Remote Fax Opt or Advanced Fax Operation appears and press OK.
  4. Press the Up or Down Arrow key until Fwd/Page/Store or Forward/Store appears and press OK.
  5. Press the Up or Down Arrow key until Off appears and press OK.
  6. If you have faxes stored in the memory, you will receive a message that reads Erase All Fax? 1. Yes 2. No.

    If you want to erase all the faxes in the memory without printing them out, press 1 (Yes) and then press Stop/Exit.

SOURCE: Brother MFC-465CN printer. Need a fix for error 46.

The problem is due to the fact that Brother machines excessively self-clean. Each time they self-clean a small amount of ink is dumped in to a holding tank/sponge. When a predefined number of self-clean operations have been performed, the machine refuses to print and gives the error message you have stated. Brother state that the tank/sponge must be replaced before the counter is reset, again by a Brother agent.

However, there is a way of reseting the self-clean counter yourself - if you Google your model number and the error code somewhere in the results you'll find how to do it. The only risk of doing this without changing the tank/sponge is that it will eventually overflow and leak out the bottom, but I did my Brother all in one some time ago and have had no problems yet.
