Solution:
· 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”

    Absolutely nothing to do with the question, its a dcp 330c not MFC you clown.

    For a dcp 330c #46 error code means your ink absorbing pad is full (usually asks you to get Brother to fix it), undo

    After cleaned the ink absorbing pad.

    1. press following keys/buttons one-by-one (Stop/Exit), (Menu), (Mono Start), then the up arrow key 4 times. it should go into maintenance mode with black and white display.
    2. using up arrow key select 8 then press (OK) key, use up/down arrow key select 0 then press (OK) key.
    3. press (Mono) key several times till found the display like Purge:009680 (the number is count)
    4. use up/down arrow key select 2 press (OK), then 7(OK), 8(OK), 3(OK). Now the counter should reset to 000000
    5. press (Stop/Exit) key exit to maintenance mode top manual.
    6. use up/down arrow key select 9(OK),9(OK), then the display should the maintenance mode back to normal color display without the Unable to clean 46 error code.

My Brother DCP 330C says " Unable to print 4F" What does this mean and what can i do to fix it please??...... Thank you Kindest reagrds Milli


Hi millih,

An error coded 4F means that there is a mechanical problem with the printer, usually, "unable to print means one of two things. Firstly an empty cartridge, secondly a full absorbing pad. I am guessing that the latter is not the priblem as the code would be #46, so if the ink cartridges are empty, get them replaced or refilled then disconnect the machine from the power for about 5 minutes, then reconnect and it should reset itself.

Sincerely

Want the reset info for g46 unable to clean .dcp-330c .and would it be better to clean the waste pad as well?cheers.


Cleaning won't help as it's a counter that sets the error. It's a sealed plastic box that needs to be replaced and then reset thru service mode.Brother only gives the reset codes to authorized service centers.
