IT means you  need to reset the purge counter in order to that .
For MFC - 240c
1.Enter mainatanace mode by pressing menu button at time of switch on. and leve the menu button when fax/scan/copy/photocapture button start blinking
2.press *, 8 & 0 and drag the this submenu by pressing mono button to get "purge" eg (purge:9624)
3.Press the 2, 7, 8, and 3 keys in this order to reset the purge count to zero.
4.Press the Stop/Exit . OFF the printer .and turn it on.

Due to manual cleaning procedures the ink absorber (waistinktank) is fed up. Needs replacement.

If you didnt run the ink cleaning procedure that much it would be a defective purge station (cleaning position). Needs replacement, too.

How do i fix clean unable 46 on my MFC-260c printer? plz help!!!!


Unplug the printer from power cord.Press and hold the "menu" button, then plug the device.You'll see on the LCD screen a "machine error" code 46.
Enter 80, then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key. You'll find an entry listed as purge count. If number is over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.This will reset the purge count value. Then restart the printer, hopefully without the
annoying cannot clean message.

How to solve the clean unable 46error of a BRother dcp-130c printer.


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.

Clean unable 46


You need a new ink absorber box which can be purchased from a brother service partner near your home.

www.brother.com

If you have got the spare part (ink absorber box) you have to open the printer:

Do NOT clean the old one! It cant be cleaned: The felt wont take up ink anymore and will stain the machine from inside and the furniture beneath the printer.

After replacing the eeprom of the printer needs reset:

(dcp: use arrow-up and set key to choose the digits. e.g. arrow-up til 8 then set arrow up til 0 then set
mfc: use the fax-number keys.
Stop-button will always go back to maintenance, if you have done wrong)

press menu then start bk-copy then fourtimes arrow up quickly after another.

machine will switch to maintenance mode and light(s) will flash.

press 8 0

press start bk-copy until PURGE 64xx

press 2 7 8 3

Purgecount will be 0000

Press stop

press 9 9 to leave the maintenance mode.

After the mfc/dcp comes up again in normal state the error has disappeared

Error 46 and says unable to clean. can u help me plz


According to the manual, the unable to clean error means a mechanical problem or a foreign object in the machine: Open the scanner cover and remove
any foreign obstacles inside the
machine. If the error message
continues, disconnect the machine
from the power source for several
minutes then reconnect it.
