You need a new waist ink absorber which can be bought as a spare part from a service partner near your home.

When the absorber is replaced you have to do a eeprom reset.

search error 46 which is quite often explained in this forum.

Error : Unable to clean


Unable to clean means that the waste-ink "sponge" is full. If you've already checked for small paper part (which is very unlikely to cause this error message), the error is mechanical. Unfortunately, that's not something us users can change, but the machine would require to be sent to service. So if your machine is not within warranty, I'd doubt it'll be worth the service cost.

Error 46 and says unable to clean. can u help me plz


According to the manual, the unable to clean error means a mechanical problem or a foreign object in the machine: Open the scanner cover and remove
any foreign obstacles inside the
machine. If the error message
continues, disconnect the machine
from the power source for several
minutes then reconnect it.

Brother mfc-215c unable to clean?


@artkoy:

There is no Error 10 within the maintenance of the printer!
An error starting with 10 (and two more digits) belongs to the communication device (fax).

Plz check again what two digit error you have and post again.

@peter:

you need a new waist ink absorber. plz check the forum for unable to clean or error 46. Its explained many times.
