The Brother manual says that you are required to replace the ink absorber box at a Brother Service Center. This is not an item covered by warranty.

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.

My brother printer j140w problem massage coming on screen "ink box full"


It may refer to the ink "overflow" box. When your printer cycles, it will dump a bit of ink which goes into a collection box. Most likely, that box is full and needs to be emptied, replaced, or whatever.

I have a problem with "brother DCP-J140W" printer, it shown at the LCD "Init unable 4F" i was thinking the problem must be the printer head, can it be repaired or just replace the head ?


Hi
Error 4F means your printhead is RIP, mostly due to bad quality ink, the only one way to fx the printer is changing the printhead but... is that really worth it?
Well, check on ebay.com or isscx.com if you can find your part at a good price!
Best Regards

I have a brother J140 W i followed your instructions to clear purge full ink box and it worked,I thought great,But now when i print the black ink goes into the yellow when I do a test I have 2 black i cyan...


Did you actually change any parts or just reset a warning? If you were getting a full error, chances are the purge system was full and needs to be changed. Likely what the problem you are having is that ink from the purge system is backing up and polluting your print heads.

A print unable message in a Brother inkjet usually means the waste ink chamber is full. This can be fixed by removing the waste bottle, cleaning and drying the pads inside, then reassembling the machine and resetting the purge counter. Most of the instructions for this can be found on u-tube. Please note it is a messy job and many folk just replace the machine.

How to change the ink box


Sir/Madam

The ink absorber box or flushing box is full. These components are periodic maintenance items that may require replacement after a period of time to ensure optimum performance from your Brother machine. Because these components are periodic maintenance items, the replacement is not covered under the warranty. The need to replace these items and the time period before replacement is dependent on the number of purges and flushes required to clean the ink system. These boxes acquire amounts of ink during the different purging and flushing operations. The number of times a machine purges and flushes for cleaning varies depending on different situations. For example, frequently powering the machine on and off will cause numerous cleaning cycles since the machine automatically cleans upon power up. The use of non-Brother ink may cause frequent cleanings because non-Brother ink could cause poor print quality which is resolved by cleaning. The more cleaning the machine requires the faster these boxes will fill up.

Other reasons for cleaning are:
  1. The machine automatically cleans after clearing a printer jam.
  2. The machine automatically cleans itself after sitting idle for more than 45 days (infrequent use).
  3. The machine automatically cleans itself after the ink cartridges have been replaced 12 times.
