Hi Jay,

let me guess, your dcp is about 2,5 years old, right? You have used generic ink carts and very often used the manual cleaning, right?

You need a new waist ink absorber,, which can be purchased at any service partner near your home (see brother homepage of your country). When done so you have to open the dcp and to replace the box. At last you have to reset the eeprom:

press menu then start bk-copy then fourtimes arrow-up (quickly after another). machine switches to maintnenace mode. press by help of the arrow-up and after each digit the set key: 8  0 (zero).
Press start bk copy til PURGE64xx appears. Press 2 7 8 3 (Arrow up and set key) and then STOP.
To leave maintnenace press 9 then 9. After machine comes up in a normal stae the error message is disappeared.

Please DO replace the box first before doing the reset. Otherwise you will seriously damage the dcp!

    would have been good if i had been able to type 8 with the arrow. but it continuously jumped off. so i throw this **** out and buy antother one.
    1. definitely not brother
    2. and definitely not from a company which owned by brother's owners.
    that's all :)

Machine error code 6A what that means?( Brother mfc 8440)


I argued on the phone with a BROTHER REP. that he should give the codes and directions to reset the machine, he refused time and time again, saying that this means physical damage to the machine an re-setting it is impossible to help, but i insisted, and it did fix the problem and the error went away.
here is what you should do, unplug for 10 sec. press and hold on the menu key while you plug it back in untill you see the screen "parameter init" press 99 and wait, this is what i did and it fixed the problem !!

My brother mfc 440cn read unable to clean error46


Its Ink Absorber Box is full. Inside the machine, in the back and hidden under the covers is a large plastic box with thick, felt pads packed in it. Every time the machine cleans its printheads, it squirts ink through all its nozzles, collects the mess, and pumps it into that box. After a few thousand cleaning operations, it decides the box is dangerously full of ink and throws up that Error 46.
Getting to the Ink Absorber Box (part number LP1270001) is fairly complex. I think it's time to ask a tech what he/she charges.
