Hi you can try
This works with most Brother printers

Procedure how to reset the error 46 error (unable to clean). This can be done on every Brother inkjet machine with a numeric keypad.

- Machine off
- Switch on the machine while holding down the “menu” button until all the leds are flashing on/off. Now you are in “maintenance” mode.
- press 80
- press the “mono start” button several times until you see “purge: xxxx”
- press “2783” in order to reset the purge counter. You will see: “purge:0000”
- press “99” to exit the maintenance mode

Now you are able to print again, but actually your ink absorber box is now full with ink. Ink flooding can happen if you don’t replace this ink box


Also can try.

Reset code.
Press menu then*2864 within 2 seconds (maint should be on the display and all the lights should be flashing, if not try again) press 80
then keep pressing black/mono start button until screen displays ‘purge count’
press 2783 to reset purge count
press stop/exit key
press 99
machine should return to normal



All the best Pineworks

Brother MFC 210C printer unable to clean print head. How can I clean it manually? The inkjet cartridges are full but the printer does not print. Error message on display: unable to clean.


If your printer is like the 420CN Model, do not forget to disconnect the printer for resetting purposes and connect it again and it may clean properly and run fine. Good luck! hopes it work. It did for me. My printer is working fine and I like it. It does the work.

My mfc 210c is unable to clean and therefore I


Unable to clean means the waste ink is full, about 1 hour labor and $20.00 part. With the new machines running about $100.00 it's probably not worth the repair.

Unable to clean?


Heres the mauel for the MFC-210C printer.

http://www.brother-usa.com/manuals/default.aspx?PRODUCTID=MFC210C&ProductGroupID=5

You can clean the outside of the printer and the paper handling mechanisms with a mild cleaning solution and a lint free cloth. To clean the insdie of the printer, use a HEPA vacuem and follow the manuels recommendations.

My Brother MFC-C


I have the same problem as amira58 - the machine keeps telling me it's unable to clean, therefore I am unable to use my printer which is mfc-215c.
Can you advise how I fix this problem ??, especially with the price of a new colour printer now below $100 - is it worth my taking it to a techno to get it fixed (printer is about 4 years old). Look forward to your response. Ahi Allen
