SOURCE: Just stopped printing black!

Hey Johnny, Your dead right. The purge tube would affect all the colours. If you are using refilled carts, try just changing the cart. Approx 10% of all refilled carts fail - so it is entirely possible you have hit on a bad one. If you are using the good stuff, I would suggest getting the cleaning kit and doing the manual clean to clear any blocked nozzles. What does the nozzle check pattern show? If there are a few lines visible, I would guess cleaning will sort it for you. Let us know how you get on...

SOURCE: DCP-340CW purge counter reset

n the mean time you can RESET this purge count back to zero using the MAINTENANCE 80 menu, to continue using the printer for a while until you get the new pads. But it on a tray as if they are full they may start to leak onto your desk....

1 . Press (MENU) (MONO START) then (^) OR <the up arrow> four times, the Photo Capture and Red Exclamation Lights will then flash.

2. Press (^) eight times until you see <8> then press (SET)
3. Press (^) twice until you see <0> then press (SET)

You will now be in MAINTENANCE 80.

4. Press the (MONO START) its a toggle until you see PURGE:6451 ( I guess this means you have cleaned the heads over 6,450 times their threshold level.) you will need to enter the code <2783> to RESET it.

5. Press (^) twice until you see < 2 > then press (SET)
5. Press (^) eight times until you see < 7 > then press (SET)
5. Press (^) nine times until you see < 8 > then press (SET)
5. Press (^) four times until you see < 3 > then press (SET)

The Printer will beep then reset counter will be at ZERO <0000000>

Its the PURGE that will increment by a variable amount each time you clean the print heads the amount will be between 100 and 130. When this count gets to about 64,000 the error 46 will occur. That's about 510 times you can clean the heads before the pads need cleaning.

Almost forget to EXIT the Maintenance mode enter 9 twice by using the up arrow & set key's to exit from maintenance mode in the same way as entering the 2783 code, or power down the printer.

SOURCE: DCP J315W unable to print 50

Try forcing a piece of thin cardboard into the paperfeed. (like a kleenex box, only the size of a piece of paper) look inside, and once your can reach it, get hold of it and pull it through. (do this with printer unplugged)You might be surprised what comes out with it. I had a little piece of paper jammed in there and the cardboard forced it out.

What to do if it always appear in the monitor of the printer that ink absorber is near full?


Not only the absorber must be cleaned, also the counter must be reset. I know there is a program for older Epson printers to reset the counter. I found a reset procedure for a brother printer here:

Perhaps you can fine one for yours?

Unable init. 50 on my Brother DCP-J315w ...what should i do


Any failure to initialise, print, clean error report usually indicates the waste ink chamber is full and the purge count has maxed out. You can remove the waste ink chamber, clean and replace the pads and refit it but seriously time consuming and messy. You should try the purge count reset first (do google search) eg this one
http://ref.topictimes.com/videos/tech/how-to-reset-purge-counter-on-brother-dcp-j315w-printer-full-1NzJwuCpVOc.html

If that works, you can keep using it but should clean the waste chamber. Or save the hassle and just buy a new machine :-)

How to do the clean unable 50 in brother DCP-165C


Hi Good day!! try this method
- Machine off

- press 80
- press the "mono start" button several times until you see "purge: xxxx"
- press "2783" in order to reset the purge counter. You will see: "purge:0000"

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
