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 :)

Go to the brother website and download the correct windows vista driver.
Unplug the printer from you laptop.
Install the driver. Wait for the driver to prompt you to plug in the printer and then you should be good to go.

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.
