Error 46 means the waste ink tank is full, needs to be replaced and reset at a shop. Must remove the entire print engine to replace. The part is less than ten bucks, the labor is expensive.

How to reset toner of samssung laserjet scx4200 after refill


usual the reset will be done automaticaly when you renew the cardrige (from samsung) hte new chip on the cardrige will giff the information to the computer and it will be reset. If you purchased the cardrige from an refilling stor they need to replace the chip also but some times they do not use the right chip so there are some informations missing and the computer can not reset, ask the store keeper to attach the right chip for your samsung printer.

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.

Hello!

Here is the "Unable to Clean" (code 46) solution:

The machine counts all purge (cleaning) operations in order to prevent the internal ink absorber box from overflowing with purged ink. An “initial purge”, for example, advances the purge counter by 187 + 420 = 607. When the purge counter approaches 6400, an internal "Machine Error 46" is generated. Further purge operations are prohibited, and therefore the printer becomes unuseable.

When an internal Machine Error 46 is generated, the user will see an “Unable to Clean” external message and will be unable to use the printer. The “Unable to Clean” external message can relate to many different internal error codes however.

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.

If there is a Machine Error 46, it is necessary to dismantle the printer, replace the ink absorber box (or possibly break the ink absorber box open and clean its absorbent sponges under a tap), re-assemble the printer and reset the purge counter to zero.

Solution no. 1. (DCP-110C):

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

1. press buttons Set, 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 up arrow key several times to get to the Purge item

4. enter 2, 7, 8 and 3 using arrow/set keys to reset the counter

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

6. enter 9,9 to exit maintenance mode

Substitute ink cartridges no longer work


I have the same problem and many Canon users , i try a trick that mayby solve this and last but not least ... Mayby the only cheap solution for all print users !! jumping-smiley-004.gif

My problem .. was looking for a cardrige solution ( IP4300 ) because 4 (of 5) cardrige leds are dimmed off and need to be replaced . I just order 5 adopters and 5 new with chip for all the five cardrige . Problem : The chip uses memory and that makes it very hard to reset . But i have thinking .. mayby this is somthing ..

What you read is new, experimenting with this idea is all at your own risk !

Here is a simple markable solution Unique !!

A - First you need all 5 brandnew cardrige with chips ( please keep all ink preventions inplace )

B - You need is a 4 poles - 1.50 / 2.50 meter +/- telephone cable

C - (five) (new) OEM cardrige without chips

D - Tin and a somthing to solder

E - 5 old chips for adopting the connection outside the printer

F - A box for the 5 new chiped cardriges


Procudure :

1 ) Make of 1,5 / 2,5 meter a 5 pcs of 30 / 50 centimeter

2 ) Solder on each lengt a old chip (this is functioned as a adopter) but first remove all the (useless) electronic components and place them on the cardriges

3 ) Solder the other site of the cable to each new chiped cardrige cq / toner that still sits on the new orriginal cardriges ( our make a alternative contact if you dont want to solder )

4 ) Tape the 5 new cardriges together and *

5 ) Put it in the box and give it a save unremovable place **

6 ) Put the (5) oem cardriges with the empty old chips ) in the right ink location(s)


* ) Looking into the new cardriges : this needs a box because of the intervering with the led this not only makes it nicer but mostly because of the outside light influence .

** ) Dont turn the kid upside down our shake it . If you do , the led indicates that the cardriges are empthy our low and the countdown proces for the chip will start !

I wait for arrive of the new ones, anybody who try make a handshake !

See you soon

Unable to clean


Waistinktank is full. You have to replace the tank by a new one and to reset the maintenance menue. Search google for error 46. Warning! Do not only reset the maintenance menue without changing the tank! Ink will flow into the printer!
