Print head is positioned at the far right hand side cannot move it. It says that it is unable to clean


Switch on.
Press Menu then Mono Start
Press + 4 times
Press + to show 8 in the LCD, then press + to show 0 i.e., Maintence Mode 80
Scroll through the maintenance lines until to get to the Purge Counter (it's about the 25th item) by pressing Mono Start repeatedly.
Press + to show 2, 7, 8 then 3 to set the purge count to zero.
Press the Stop/Exit key (Ignore Machine error 46 - that will clear when you exit, below)
Press the + key to show 9 then 9 again.
Carry on printing
(I just did all this and the print heat moved NO PROBLEM and I printed a test page OK!)

Error message UNABLE TO CLEAN see troubleshooting in user's guide


If you see a message that says UNABLE TO CLEAN, it usually means there is something wrong in the printing mechanism. More than likely it has a bad printhead.

Error messaage "unable to clean" on a MFC210c


There should be a number with the error, if it's 46, you need a new ink flushing box. You won't be able to fax until you clear the error.

I keep getting an error message- unable to clean....I just bought and installed new ink cartridges, and the machine is still having trouble - I cannot print at all now. There seems to be no way to clear...


The waistinktank has to be replaced. DO NOT only reset the code but change the waistinktank! Otherwise ink will flow into the machine and will cause serious damages!!!!!!!! See link how to do that: http://www.fixya.com/support/t202485-cleaning
