Machine error 46

Error 46 means one or both of the ink purging (happens each time the printer cleans itself) counters have exceeded the maximum level. This is supposed to require new ink absorber boxes/pads to be fitted to the machine, but there is a way around this.

If you search YouTube for your printer model, you will find videos on how to reset these counters. You run the risk of the waste ink overflowing, but this is very rare.

46 keeps displaying we tried a trouble shooting idea,, pressing 80 ... but we cant press anything

Replace the ink absorber box (or possibly break the ink absorber box open and clean its absorbent sponges under a tap), re-assemble the printer and reset the purge counter to zero.

This is a fault of the inkloader. A broken ink is not tripping the sensor, or it is out of ink.
Turn on printer. When logo starts, press and hold the info and back buttons until it says entering diags.
Go to functions menu, scroll to reset IRC counter,enter, and then exit diags. Printer will boot to ready.

Well when the logo is moving before it centers is when you hold down the back and help buttons and it should reboot in service mode, usually it takes it a second or two to start the process. So you can try that again or go into service mode the way you did before. Once in the service/diagnostic mode you need to scroll to the bottom to the function menu then reset the IRC counter in the sub menu and you should be good to go. You were almost there before. I have to do one today so if I notice anything different than the instructions given to you I will post back but Ive done it several times and everything sounds right.
