Question about Brother DCP 115C All-In-One InkJet Printer

3 Answers

Errors list : 46, 50, A1

My DCP-115c printer gives the message "unable to print - see trouble shooting in the manual". The message was coming when I changed black cartridge on new one and done print test and cleans many times (accordig to print test results).
I have checked log information list (code 80) and found following errors:
1:46, 2:46, 3:46, 4:46, 5:46, 6:50, 7:46, 8:A1, 9:46.
I used my DCP about 14 months and printed a little more than 6000 pages

What do you advice in that case?

    Thx

    ... but what about error 50

    I am afraid that when I will change waist ink absorber and reset the eeprom my DCP will not work correctly according to error 50.



    Moreover these errors were appeared when the machine not print black colour after cartridge exchanged and many of printer tests and cleans.



    What do you think about ?

    Is my printer head OK ?

    Can you write a procedure for the DCP-115 C.Please

    since the error message, 46 and the struggle to find 'purge' my print quality is terrible. half of the print[about 3 inches] is fine and the other half is stacked and ghosting. I moved printer and slightly tilted it to one side. A whole lot of ink poured out from somewhere in the base. has anyone experienced this.

DCP 115C does not print


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

the manual states for this problem
"The machine has a mechanical problem.
OR
A foreign obstacle such as a clip or ripped
paper is in the machine."

Unable to clean message in brother dcp-115c aio


I saw on this site codes for another MFC to clear memory and reset the cleaning unit count code to zero. It worked on two of my brother mfc 820cw units. The third mfc 5840cn had unable to print error message 46- nothing at Brother. they want you to take everything to a repair shop.they don't help at all. Then the error went to 4F when I tried toclear the memory.As Iunderstand that message- it means I have to replace the printer head. Have no clue where or what it is. But I can read a manual as well as anyone and follow directions to fix it! Can't be worse than it is now! Good luck
