It's in German but google does a reasonable translation. After receiving a "UNABLE TO CLEAN" message, I've just cleaned the pads on my MFC-425CN (washed in cold water) and re-set the purge counter - all working fine now.
you need a new ink absorber box which you can buy from a brother service dealer near your home (see brother homepage of your country). when done so open printer: http://www.hstt.net/refill-faq/inside.html#Brother_mfc215c (use google translation german) you have to rest the eeprom parameter, too
press menu then start bk-copy then fourtimes arrow-up quickly after another. machine will switch to maintenance mode. press by help of arrow up and set : 8 - 0. press start bk-copy til PURGE 64xx appears. press the sequence of 2 -7 -6 -3 (arrow up and set). PURGE will reset to 0000. press 9 - 9 to leave maintenance.
brother has changed the inside of the carts. So plz check carefully the pics if your cart looks the same. If it looks different you should drill the hole near the upper valve (the one with the white plastic)!
The waistinktank is full and has to be changed. Buy a new one from a service partner. Dont clean the old one, cause the felt will be as stone afterwards and wont take up any ink!
See link how to open printer:
See here how to do the resetcode procedure:
unable to clean is the error 46. You have to change the waistinktank and to reset the error code:
Buy/order a new waistinktank from a service partner (see brother homepage). Open the printer (use pictures to know how to):
The waistinktank (ALTTINTENTANK) is the plasticcover with the white felt in it (should be gray/black now) and the two tubes (gray/white). Unplug the tubes and change it to the new one. Reassemble the printer. After power up press menu then start mono (B/W) then 4 times arrow-up: maintenance should be displayed and printer beeps with flashing buttons. Press 8 and 0 (zero). Press severaltimes (about 15-20) start mono (b/w) until purge (Nummer is about 6425) is displayed. Press 2 7 8 3. Purge is 0000. press stop. press 99. machine comes up again. thats it.
BTW: YOu cant clean the waistinktank. Buy/order a new one! If you reset the purgecount without changing the waistinktank ink will flow into the machine!!!
