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 :-)

Printer que " unable to clean see troubleshooting in manual"


Unable to clean usually means the waste ink tank is full, the only repair is to replace the tank, aprox. $10.00 and reset the counter to clear the error. If you clear the error without a new tank you risk ink overflow inside the machine and on your table...

Clean unable 46 means you need a new flushing box. It's where the ink goes when it cleans the printhead, and yours is full. You need a shop to replace it.

Cant print


Ink button on? Check status monitor? I think is ink out message. Head cleaning for several time, throw ink too much. If u don't use CISS, after instaled ink tank, just wait for 1 hour before use printer. Ink will flow to head itself.

I keep getting an error message- unable to clean....I just bought and installed new ink cartridges, and the machine is still having trouble - I cannot print at all now. There seems to be no way to clear...


The waistinktank has to be replaced. DO NOT only reset the code but change the waistinktank! Otherwise ink will flow into the machine and will cause serious damages!!!!!!!! See link how to do that: http://www.fixya.com/support/t202485-cleaning
