This sounds that the printhead circuit must be defectiv.

You can try to change the ph by replacing it with a 2nd hand one of a dcp 110c. This does not mean it will be fixed for sure: If the main circuit board is defectiv you have lost twice...

Better sell at eBay and buy a new one.

Have you had this machine apart/head removed?
error 48 = Head flat cables or carriage-head flat cable broken or not connected.......or main P.C.B.

Are you serious, I have never seen this on any inkjet, ........"Try to get temperature of room.. warming up"

Do you live in a igloo?

Error 48: The cables connecting the Printed Board Assembly & the print head are either damaged or not connected well.
1. For this firstly check whether the ph cable is having any cuts in it & if not so then remove the flat cable from the main pcb end & do clean the pins & the reinsert into the cable socket on the pcb.
2. The second try is to replace the main pcb.

How to clear "unable to init.73" in brother dcp-j125 printer?

This is a mechanical problem of some description. Open the scanner cover and remove any foreign objects and paper scraps from inside the machine. Then, disconnect the machine from the power for several minutes and reconnect it. This should clear the error, but if it does not repeat the procedure making absolutely certain there is nothing in the printer obstructing the paper path.
You can get a manual for this machine here:
and there is a manual resetting procedure that you might try here:
