    What shall I do? My Printer keeps telling me 'cannot clean heads' it is error46 - Brother told me this - fat lot of help that was, the cost to repair is more than the printer, what a joke, but where can I buy 'New Box' to replace it myself and something called a 'Eeporm' where do I buy that and, and, how do I take out all the old bits to replace all the new bits. Thanks.

Cause the waist ink absorber box is fed up with ink. you have to replace the box and to reset the eeprom. search error 46 or unable to clean here. its written very often how to do that (same procedure for all brother inkjets)

I can't afford color ink refill for brother mfc-490cw, I would like to print in black only for a while but can't figure out how to set it up like that? any suggestions

Hi, the problem is you cant, when the color ink has run out the printer will stop working and keep telling you their is no ink and it needs replacing, on older printers you use to be able to do this but on the more modern ones they stopped this so you had to use new inks all the time, their is no way round this problem, sorry

Black doesn't print

I have same problem. Found if I remove and replace the black cartridge before I send a print job it will work. Be interested to know if that works for anyone else.

Brother MFC-5440CN Ink Status

I have the same problem.I did go to Staples store and the person told me to clean the heads of the cartridges with alcohol and the bottom injector. I tried that and it did not work.It keeps telling me the ink is low even if I put in new ones. I am going to try the alcohol solution to see if it works. If not I will return to store for an exchange.I really like the printer.

Brother problem

Did you use third party ink? If the ink is pigmented the filter in front of the printnozzels is clogged and cant be cleaned any more. What you can try is to buy a brand new original brother ink cart and do the cleaning 3 times. After that do a testsheet printing. In case its OK, your lucky and it was a problem of the cart. If you cant see any blocks (with the original ink used!!!) the printhead is crashed and has to be replaced (BTW: Its cheaper to buy a new mfc)! Do use only dye ink for brother printers!!!
