You would be better off buying a new machine- not worth the repair.

Trouble shooting clean unable 50

Alright, i have to tell you, this is a really bad post. You gave me nothing for information. But from what information i can gather, it could be error number 50. on a brother DCP-145C. Heres the problem with brother printers. They are cheap to buy initially, but break and can't be fixed easily without being a "Certified brother technician".

Either way. I think you have to replace the logic board on the unit, possibly. Possibly check the connections and use sand paper and undo some connections sand the copper, and put them back in. Logic board will likely run you over a hundred, if you need to replace the fuser, thats over 100 again. Expensive repair. If it had been an HP printer, i could have explained it thoroughly, i'm sorry i can't be of more help.

Unable to clean 46 mfc 490 cw

Hello there muvera.

You are 100% correct. The number of ink purges reached the limit allowed by the printer.

Brother does this because there is a physical ink absorber box that absorbs all the excess ink the printer excretes during normal use. If you just reset the counter, ink will spill all over the inside of the printer, so I would strongly advise against just resetting the counter.

Since it appears like you have enough expertise to open up the printer yourself, you need to replace part number LS4699001. Good luck finding that part, however. As a Brother Authorized Technician/Service Center, I can't just sell you parts to repair it yourself as it is against our merchant agreement.

Your best bet would be to just take it to your local service center or send it to Brother directly.

If you can obtain the part, I will be more than happy to walk you through the reset procedure.

If this post helped you, please comment back and positively rate my solution.
