If you look at the Brother website you will find a trouble shooting guide for your machine.

In the guide, for the error you quote Brothers guidance is to check for a stuck piece paper, however it also states that if the printhead is hard over to one side (righthand side if memory serves me correct), then to contact Brother. If you do so, Brother will tell you it needs to be serviced by a Brother agent, which will likely cost you more than a new one !

If it isnt a stuck piece of paper, the problem is due to the fact that Brother machines excessively self-clean. Each time they self-clean a small amount of ink is dumped in to a holding tank/sponge. When a predefined number of self-clean operations have been performed, the machine refuses to print and gives the error message you have stated. Brother state that the tank/sponge must be replaced before the counter is reset, again by a Brother agent.

However, there is a way of reseting the self-clean counter yourself - if you Google your model number and the error code somewhere in the results you'll find how to do it. The only risk of doing this without changing the tank/sponge is that it will eventually overflow and leak out the bottom, but I did my Brother all in one some time ago and have had no problems yet.

The display on my printer is showing "unable to clean 5a" I have checked for paper jams and purged message. The message still comes back again.


I don't know what brand/model printer you have. My Epson printers won't clean if the ink is too low. I suspect other printers do the same.

Canon DCP 115c


if your printer is a BROTHER which shows error 46 (unable to clean) it can be fixed:
you need a new waistink absorber which can be purchased from a brother service partner near your home (see brother homepage). After replacing there must a eeprom rest be done.

Unable to clean


Hi, I tried the solution above "by obiewan" it work's for me but I do a little changes on his pattern.

1. Unplug your printer
2. press down the menu/set then plug it (just keep oh pressing it down until you see the message error 46 show up on LCD)
3. press 80
4. then look for "Purge", i think its on the 25th when you scroll down
5. then reset the pruge count to "0" by pressing 2 7 8 3
6. then press stop/exit
7. then press 9 twice

VOILA!!!
