Leave the maintenance mode by pressing 9 then 9. You need a new waistinktank first. You'll get one at a service partner near your home: search brother hompage for that.

Afterwards you'll have to assemble the printer and to change the waistinktank.

Afterthat you can reset within the maintenance mode (search error 46)

DO NOT RESET WITHOUT REPLACING THE WAISTINKTANK

My brother printer is saying it can't clean. It normally does this when I turn it on.


Here are several pages which tackle this problem. Some include pictures as well as explanation.

How do clear the message Unable to or Unable Brother

Determine the error code by the following. unplug the unit, hold down the Menu/Set key, re-insert the power plug while holding down the Menu/Set key. The internal Machine Error Code will be displayed. Unplug and re-plug the unit again. You should get error code 46. If so:

Dismantle the printer, replace the ink absorber box (or possibly break it open and clean its sponges under a tap). Re-assemble the printer and reset the purge counter to zero. The counter is reset as follows according to Ronald Massey:

  1. Enter machine maintenance mode (on MFC210C all four photo/copy/fax/scan lights flash in maintenance mode). Care is needed in maintenance mode, otherwise critical settings may be inadvertently corrupted.
  2. FAX models with numerical keypads: Press the Menu/Set, *, 2, 8, 6 and 4 keys within two seconds. (if you fail to complete the correct key sequence within two seconds, press the Stop key to try again).
  3. Other (non-FAX) models: Press the Menu/Set and Black Start keys. Next press the up arrow key four times to enter the maintenance mode).
    1. Press the 8 then 0 keys in the initial stage of the maintenance mode to call up the machine's log information list (function code 80).
    2. Press the Black Start key several times to scroll through the log information list to reach the purge counter. The purge counter is the 25th item in the list.
    3. Press the 2, 7, 8, and 3 keys in this order to reset the purge count to zero.
  4. Press the Stop/Exit key to return to the initial stage of the maintenance mode.
  5. Press the 9 key twice to return to the standby state

Ran out of ink, changed the ink and the printer prints a blank paper...checked the ink everything is good...still nothing printing??


Make sure you are inserting genuine Lexmark cartridges.
Try to re-seat the cartridges into the printer. Remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > unplug / re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it > when the printer turns on, firmly reinsert the cartridges. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If that doesn't help, try to clean the print cartridge nozzles. Open the Lexmark Solution Center on your computer by going to Start menu > Programs / All Programs > Lexmark Z600 Series > Maintenance tab > Under Select a Maintenace tool, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. > click Print. Then try to print a document again.

Power off the printer for 15 minutes and power back on again. If that fixes the problem then OK.
If not then go into maintenance mode -
Press and hold the menu/set key while turning on the machine. Wait until it comes completely up before releasing. It should say Maintenance in the display.

If not press function,*,2,8,6,4 within two seconds. It should say maintenance in the display. Or on some machines Menu,*,2,8,6,4 within 2 seconds.

Once you get it into maintenance hit 91 to do a parameter reset and than 99 to get out of maintenance.



You reset all Brother fax machines the same way. Press function, *, 2,8,6,4 all within 2 seconds to place the machine into the maintanence mode. Press 0,1 to perform a parameter reset. this will restore the machine to factory default settings. press 9,9 to exit maint mode.

Procedure is:

1) Unplug machine.
2) Hold down menu key. Plug in machine.
3) Release menu key.
4) Enter 91
5) Enter 99
6) Machine will warm up.

Unable to clean


Unplug the printer from power cord.Press and hold the "menu" button, then plug the device.You'll see on
the LCD screen a "machine error" code.If this code is 40,41 or 4F the print head is defective.If the
error is 46 the waste ink tank is full.Follow this:
1. Pres 'menu', 'mono start' then'menu' one by one...
2. Press the arrow up or down to go to'maintenance 80'.
3. Press 'mono start' several times to go to'Purge'. Finding the PURGE will show some numeric value
which is Iassume the number of times the printer had cleaned.
4. Press'arrow up' key and scroll for number "2" then press "set".Do the same for numbers 7, 8 and 3.
After you have entered thiscombination, the purge numeric value will be reseted to 00000.

Which says maintenace required


The message indicates its time to clean/change the drum or other items inside the printer. You can purchase a maintenace kit online or take it in for service. You can also clear this message if you don't want to service your printer ... follow these steps: ***Keep in mind not doing the maintence may cause expensive issues down the road***

1. Shut the Printer off. (Use the shut off switch)

2. Hold down the Left Side of the ITEM and VALUE Buttons while powering the Printer back on.

3. Continue to hold Buttons until the Printer says “RESET MAINTENANCE COUNTER”, Then release the Buttons.
