Hi, I don't have a manual for the DCP 770CW, but I have the one that covers the 750CW.
The following is the section that covers how to put it into Maintenance mode, and how to step though to find the Purge counter, and then how to reset it. You may have to experiment a little if the exact keys/sequence doesn't match what you have on your machine's keyboard, but normally it isn't that difficult to work it out:
" (Note 2) This machine counts all purge operations and flushing operations performed since produced in order to prevent the ink absorber box and flushing box from overflowing with drained and flushed ink, respectively. An initial purge, for example, advances the counter by 163 + 432 = 595. When the purge or flushing counter approaches 9600 or 475852272, respectively, the "MACHINE ERROR 46" appears, and further purge or flushing operations are prohibited. Replace the ink absorber box and flushing box, and then reset their counters with the following procedure. Resetting purge or flushing counter 1) Press the Menu and Black Start (Mono Start) keys. Next press the key four times to make the machine enter the maintenance mode.
