Testimonial: "Thank you for the site info! i looked for a long time, wish i had asked and followed your advice the first thing as it went right to it."
i posted few days back solution to this particular problem, please follow these steps:
first, try to establish if this really is full absorbent pad, remove power cable from the back, wait 20sec, press menu/set key, insert power mains - in most brother printer/faxes this will display machine error code. if this is code 46, you are on the money, your absorbent pad is full (not necessarily, only counter is showing it as such in most cases).
we will asssume that counter is showing full and therefore reset it again to zero:
1. after machine code is displayed, key in "80",
2. go down with arrow key till you find "purge counter"
3. type "2783" this should set counter to "0"
4. press "stop/exit"
5. press "9" twice
6. remove cartridges from craddle
7. remove power cord
8. insert power cord back
9. switch on printer
10. insert cartridges back
if that do not work, then maybe really you need to replace absorbent sponge... it is done under warranty and if not technician in service centre.
if you want to do it yourself, remove cartridges, remove fron cover and on the right hand you will have "offending" sponge. either clean it (absorbent, lint free tissue is fine to remove excess first, then few drop of water and repeat draining process with tissue several time, at least till "cake" from the top is removed. best of course will be to replace the sponge with new one.
after that you still need to reset counter. in another way - follow steps...
if you find this advice useful, pleasae leave comment and rate it, thanx!
