Hi Good day.. The problem is on your ink level. To check your ink level please do the following. 1. Click "Start" then Setting 2. Click "Printer and Faxes" 3. right click your printer and then properties you should be in the printer box. 4. Click "Printing Preferences" and then you will see your actual ink level..
that why the teardrop is flashing, maybe your ink has ran out.. refill the ink or replace it with new one..
Hi you can try This works with most Brother printers Procedure how to reset the error 46 error (unable to clean). This can be done on every Brother inkjet machine with a numeric keypad.
- Machine off - Switch on the machine while holding down the “menu” button until all the leds are flashing on/off. Now you are in “maintenance” mode. - press 80 - press the “mono start” button several times until you see “purge: xxxx” - press “2783” in order to reset the purge counter. You will see: “purge:0000” - press “99” to exit the maintenance mode
Now you are able to print again, but actually your ink absorber box is now full with ink. Ink flooding can happen if you don’t replace this ink box Also can try.
Reset code. Press menu then*2864 within 2 seconds (maint should be on the display and all the lights should be flashing, if not try again) press 80 then keep pressing black/mono start button until screen displays ‘purge count’ press 2783 to reset purge count press stop/exit key press 99 machine should return to normal
Your Ink Absorber box is full. The machine cleans its print nozzles by blasting them out with ink; it collects that waste ink and pumps it into a plastic box filled with thick, felt pads. After a certain number of cleaning operations, it decides it's not safe to squirt more ink into the box and gives this Error 46. Replacing the ink absorber box and flushing box and resetting the purge counter is fairly complex. Maybe someone has instructions all typed out, but your best bet is probably to take it to a Brother tech.
Hello, at this point I would suggest COMPLETELY uninstall your photo printer, reboot your system and reinstall. Hopefully this helps.
I will tell you though, usually if after running cleaning utilities, the picture still has lines and spaces, could be due to print heads drying up and unable to output the proper amount of ink. This happens alot when people are not using their printer often enough to keep the ink flowing properly.
Recently I had to replace a printer that I had not printed on in like 3 months, the print heads dried up/ clogged up. And the new ink I had just purchased was a waste of money. Had to replace entire printer.
unplug the printer from the wall, then plug it back in, leave in connected to the computer though.
this may help. If not, cycle the power off then on, ....wait. if nothing happens, click on the printer settings and ensure that they are correct.
