The error 46 indicates that the ink absorber pad is full and needs to be replaced. According to their site here, you will need to have an engineer replace it for you, although I bet you could purchase a new one from their store.

    I honestly don't know, although you can contact Brother's support from there. Also, here's a site that sells the pads, although they don't describe how to install it.

Brother dcp-150c Clean Unable 46


If you actually changed the flushing box, you should know how to go to the maintenance mode and reset the waste ink counter. Info. that is only available to Brother techs.

My Brother DCP-150C cant print, displays, UNABLE TO CLEAN"


Unable to clean either means there's a paper scrap in the clean station, or the ink overflow box is full and needs to be changed by a dealer. Sorry, no quick fix...

Clean unable 46


You need a new ink absorber box which can be purchased from a brother service partner near your home.

www.brother.com

If you have got the spare part (ink absorber box) you have to open the printer:

Do NOT clean the old one! It cant be cleaned: The felt wont take up ink anymore and will stain the machine from inside and the furniture beneath the printer.

After replacing the eeprom of the printer needs reset:

(dcp: use arrow-up and set key to choose the digits. e.g. arrow-up til 8 then set arrow up til 0 then set
mfc: use the fax-number keys.
Stop-button will always go back to maintenance, if you have done wrong)

press menu then start bk-copy then fourtimes arrow up quickly after another.

machine will switch to maintenance mode and light(s) will flash.

press 8 0

press start bk-copy until PURGE 64xx

press 2 7 8 3

Purgecount will be 0000

Press stop

press 9 9 to leave the maintenance mode.

After the mfc/dcp comes up again in normal state the error has disappeared
