...because you have run the cleaning cycles too much, the waist inktank is fed up! needs replacing. contact brother hotline or try to get one from a service partner which can be found on the brother homepage of your country.

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

Hi, check to see if there is any foreign object jamming the print mechanism, check all drive belts. If this doesn't show nup any problems, I'm afraid that you have a failure that will require dis-assembly and repair by a company who deals in these printers.
