ok el error 46 o unable to clean en las impresoras brother se debe a que llegaste al numero maximo de purgas de cartuchos por lo cual la impresora supone que el wasteink o el deposito donde tira la tinta esta lleno y para evitar que se tire y te haga un desorden monumental recomienda que lo cambies asi por lo cual se sugiere que si no quieres comprar uno nuevo abre la impresora y cambia la esponja.
cuando el contador de limpieza llega a 6400 se genera un error interno machine error 46. asi que las futuras operaciones de limpieza son prohibidas and la impresora no se puede usar
Pero no te espantes ya que tiene arreglo.

This was posted for the MFC 210, but also worked for the Brother MFC3240C. The only difference being the # listed in the purge: being 10000+, but the 2783 and all other instructions remain the same.

Printer Canon iP1700 - I have already put the new inkcartridge black & colour but the printer says inkcartridge colour is not installed properly. I have installed so many times but same problem.


Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached.

To reattach the cartridge check the following steps :

turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head.

Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report.

Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

Black inkcartridge doesn't show


Since your printer is new, is should be covered under guarantee. Please take it back to your dealer, he should swop it out. Alternatively you can arrange a replacement from Lexmark direct through their website.

Common error for Printhead that some colors on your printout are missing.
1. Clean printhead twice press menu button> select clean printhead> select basic/deep clean
2. Test Print Press photo and copy button at the same time for atleast 10 sec. or until it prints
3. Reseat the printhead Simple remove the inkcartridges and the printhead close the printer access door without the printhead. Open the printer access door put the printhead and the inkcartridges back. Then close the printer access door. DO TEST PRINT if still missing colors
4. Replace printhead Contact Kodak AiO support line at 1 800 421 6699

Canon pixma ip1600 new colour ink cartridge unrecognised


Hi Nicole,
The problem you are describing seems to be one of Genuine parts compatibility? Are you inserting the Canon replacement cartridges? if not then the printer will fail to communicate with them. I had the same problem, unfortunately these replacement/s carry printed circuits with information chips that only communicate with their genuine machine/s.
If the cartridges are genuine then maybe a fault on their circuit boards/chips and should be returned to the seller.
I hope this helps?
Happy New Year!

Canon PIXMA iP4000 has five cartridges 6BLK,e3BLK,6y,6m,6c


You may want to puschace and use a cleaning cartridge but positive results are not guaranteed. It depend how bad your print head is clogged.

The cost is about $5.

Google it (canon printer cleaning cartridge)

Pixma mx310: error message check ink u163 will not delete after replacing colour inkn cartridge cl 41. unable to use printer.


Ink has run out. Replace the ink cartridge and close the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover). If printing is in progress and you want to continue printing,press the Stop/Reset button for at least 5 seconds with the inkcartridge installed. Then printing can continue under the ink outcondition. The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled. Replace the empty ink cartridge immediately after the printing.The resulting print quality is not satisfactory, if printing iscontinued under the ink out condition.


Thanks for using Fixya

Faint Printing


It could be a old ink cartridge was installed even if you just bought it check the date.The jets maybe clog from the previous ink cartridge if it was not used often.If the date is good I would go into the utility settings on the printer and do a print head cleaning.

Ink cartridge


No, it's not printer fault. It is a cartridge error. Try to exchange your cartridge with your purchaser.
