If you actually changed the flushing box, you should know how to go to the maintenance mode and reset the waste ink counter. Info. that is only available to Brother techs.

Not really I changed the ink absorber too, it's an easy job, knowing the codes to reset is an altogether different and more difficult task. If anyone knows how to get The DCP-J4110DW in to maintenance mode it would be greatly appreciated. Regards, Darren

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 :-)

Error 46


The error 46 indicates that the ink absorber pad is full and needs to be replaced. According to their site here, you will need to have an engineer replace it for you, although I bet you could purchase a new one from their store.

My Brother DCP-150C cant print, displays, UNABLE TO CLEAN"


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...

Clean unable 46


You need a new ink absorber box which can be purchased from a brother service partner near your home.

www.brother.com

If you have got the spare part (ink absorber box) you have to open the printer:

Do NOT clean the old one! It cant be cleaned: The felt wont take up ink anymore and will stain the machine from inside and the furniture beneath the printer.

After replacing the eeprom of the printer needs reset:

(dcp: use arrow-up and set key to choose the digits. e.g. arrow-up til 8 then set arrow up til 0 then set
mfc: use the fax-number keys.
Stop-button will always go back to maintenance, if you have done wrong)

press menu then start bk-copy then fourtimes arrow up quickly after another.

machine will switch to maintenance mode and light(s) will flash.

press 8 0

press start bk-copy until PURGE 64xx

press 2 7 8 3

Purgecount will be 0000

Press stop

press 9 9 to leave the maintenance mode.

After the mfc/dcp comes up again in normal state the error has disappeared
