Getting error 46 means waistinktank filled up.

You need a new waistinktank.

Im not sure if you can get one at a service partner (see brother homepage of your country). Ask for it. If your machine is still in warranty they will do the job for free.

BTW: You must have run a lot of cleaning cycles! Is it because you run generic ink? The waist ink tank of the lc51 carts last at least 3 years at normal office condition.

    No. You need a new waistinktank because the stuff inside cant be cleaned.

    After changigng the tank there has to be done a reset. Resetting without a NEW waistinktank will destroy the hole printer (and the furniture beneath, because ink will flow into the machine (and onto the furniture)!!!!!

Troubleshot 46 on mfc-240c


Error code 46 means that your ink absorber pad needs to be replaced. According to Brother, only an engineer can do that, but you can get more information from them by contacting Brother support:

http://www.brother-usa.com/Support/

Click on "Send us an Email" and tell them your printer's model number, the error code, and whether or not your machine is covered by a warranty.

Trouble shooting and routine maintenance


46 means the ink absorber box is full, it only costs around $10.00 to replace but you need to get into service mode to reset the counter. I'm not allowed to give out that info...

Problem with my printer Brother MFC-240C "Print unable 4F"


Access the internal maintenance mode by pressing the Menu/Set button, then press * 2 8 6 4 within 2 seconds. This should put you in the maintenance mode menu. Enter 80, then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key. You'll find an entry listed as purge count. If number is over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.

This will reset the purge count value. Then the printer will restart,
try this step by step.without missing any thing. thanks
