Hi there,

In Windows right-click the printer and choose printing Preferences. From here, you will be able to specify the quality (DPI) or orientation and scale of the print jobs. Incorrect settings here can override the printer’s hardware settings. So if one computer can print without a problem while another is having issues, then a software setting is probably the reason.

While most problems can be fixed using the above techniques, some printers will need to get serviced based on the issue. if you have a problem with a gear or roller, you can order parts, but replacing those parts is often a complicated task. If this is the case, you need to weigh the cost of repair versus the cost of replacement. Older printers become too expensive to fix and maintain, and as technology improves laser printers are getting less expensive and replacing sub-standard ink jet models.

Let me know for any clarifications.

I have a brother MFC-490CW printer it keeps coming up unable to clean 35 andd then a paper jam. I have un jammed the paper, unplugged the power and plugged it back 4 times. All of my ink besides the...


Hello there Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Unable to Clean 4F


Hi there
With some Brother printers you can try this.

Access the internal maintenance mode by pressing the Menu/Set button, then press * 2 8 6 4 within 2 seconds. This should put you in the maintenance mode menu. Enter 80, and then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key. You'll find an entry listed as purge count. If number is over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.

This will reset the purge count value. Then the printer will restart, hopefully without the annoying cannot clean message.


Some times this happens because of using cheap compatible ink cartridges if this is the case change the ink cartridges.

Wont let me clean


Unable to clean means that the waste-ink "sponge" is full. 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 withing warranty, I'd doubt it'll be worth the service cost.

Unable to print, unable to int, unable to clean


unable to clean is the error 46. You have to change the waistinktank and to reset the error code: Buy/order a new waistinktank from a service partner (see brother homepage). Open the printer (use pictures to know how to): http://www.hstt.net/refill-faq/inside.html#Brother_mfc215c The waistinktank (ALTTINTENTANK) is the plasticcover with the white felt in it (should be gray/black now) and the two tubes (gray/white). Unplug the tubes and change it to the new one. Reassemble the printer. After power up press menu then start mono (B/W) then 4 times arrow-up: maintenance should be displayed and printer beeps with flashing buttons. Press 8 and 0 (zero). Press severaltimes (about 15-20) start mono (b/w) until purge (Nummer is about 6425) is displayed. Press 2 7 8 3. Purge is 0000. press stop. press 99. machine comes up again. thats it. BTW: YOu cant clean the waistinktank. Buy/order a new one! If you reset the purgecount without changing the waistinktank ink will flow into the machine!!!
