Based on that error, usually the waste pads in the unit need to be replaced. Flushing Box and Pads are about $25, Labor usually runs anywhere from $50 to $85.00

thanks adi

Hi there
First you put down that you have a MFGC5840CN printer I not know this printer are you sure it not an MFC-5840CN?

I cannot tell you all that you want to know because you cannot post lots of text on here.
So what I will do is send you the link and it will tell you all you need to know what wrong with your printer and how you can fix it.

And when you come back to say thanks and tell me that it is the MFC-5840 that you have then if it is this and you need a manual then let us know and I will put one in on my website with the link for you to download.

Unable to clean can you help


The message "Unable to Clean" will appear on the display if there is a mechanical malfunction of the Brother machine OR if a foreign object, such as a paper clip or ripped piece of paper, is stuck in the machine. Check the machine for any foreign objects by following the steps listed below:

 

1. Open the scanner cover by pulling up on the lower right corner of the cover until it locks into place.

 

2. Look inside the Brother machine and remove any foreign objects.

 

3. Close the scanner cover by lifting it slightly to release the lock, gently push the scanner cover support located in the back of the unit and then close the scanner cover.

 

If the message Please Wait - Unable to Clean continues to appear on the display the machine will need to be reset. To reset the machine, unplug it from the power outlet for several seconds and then plug it back in. If the date and time appear on the LCD, then the problem is resolved.

 

If the message continues to appear on the display your machine is within warranty, you can locate a Brother Authorized Service Center (ASC) in your area by clicking on the link below:

http://www.brother-usa.com/service/default.aspx or contact Brother Customer Service by calling 1-877-Brother (1-877-276-8437) Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.

My Brother DCP-150C cant print, displays, UNABLE TO CLEAN"


Unable to clean either means there's a paper scrap in the clean station, or the ink overflow box is full and needs to be changed by a dealer. Sorry, no quick fix...

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.

Printer has unable to clean message


When trying to use your Brother machine you get the message "Unable to _____". The blank may be the word Change, Print, Scan or Clean and these words may vary from model to model.
This message is a general message and will appear for different reasons. It often indicates a paper jam or a mechanical issue. Complete the following to determine the possible issue.
Check for foreign objects, such as a clip or ripped paper, inside the machine.
Open the scanner cover by pulling up on the lower right corner of the cover. Look inside the machine and remove any foreign objects. If you see jammed paper or another item inside this area, gently pull it out and then close the scanner cover securely.
Then with the power on, pull the plug from the wall for several minutes. The plug it in and power the unit up.
