SOURCE: Brother MFC 5840 won't print red. ink is full. printer head clean

If the regular cleaning does not work, you can try the power purge. Perform it by doing the following:

  • Press Menu, 2, 8, 6, 4 quickly (within about 1-2 seconds from the menu-press, all five buttons should been placed, in order).
  • The display and some buttons should start flashing, and it should say "Maintenance".
  • Press 7, 6.
  • It should say "CLEANING ALL", press right arrow key until you get "CLEANING MAGENTA" or similar.
  • Press 3, it should now change to POWER_P or P_PURGE. Press Mono/Black Start.
  • The display should say "Cleaning", when it's done, it will say Maintenance again.
  • Press 99 and you will leave Maintenance mode, you can now try and see if magenta works again.
If it doesn't work, you'd probably need chemicals to clean the ink tubes. But, this power purge should work.

SOURCE: I have a brother DCP-135c printer. the magenta ink not printing

The process to get to the print head will take you approx. 1 hour. Without being trained on it, there is a high failure rate upon completion.

The Scanner assembly needs to be taken off. Harness Cables for the Scanner need to be removed.The Upper Case Assembly needs to be taken off. Printhead casing and printhead tubing calbes need to be removed, printhead mainboard needs to be removed, and then you have access to the printhead.

Thanks

SOURCE: My printer wont print even after changing ink and cleaning

I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing, the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck
RK

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.

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.

Replace ink


Take cartridges out of the printer, inside cartridge case if you look inside, in the back-middle part of it, you'll see black plastic. Take some swabs and wet them in alcohol, with it try to clean inside of the plastic.

Brother DCP-J4110DW. Why is the ink absorber full?


The ink absorber box or flushing box is nearly 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. http://support.brother.com/g/b/faqlist.aspx?c=as_ot&lang=en&prod=dcpj4110dw_eu_as&tabid=2

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.

Unable to clean either means there's a paper scrap in the clean station, or the ink overflow box is full and needs to be changed by a dealer. Sorry, no quick fix...
