Question about Brother DCP-340CW All-In-One InkJet Printer
I get an error message saying "unable to clean" and I believe I need to change the waist ink absorber box but I havent a clue how to. Could you help please!!
When you have purged , cleaned the print heads, your Brother Printer
about 6,450 times it will be unable to print anymore. This is because
they recommend that the printer is serviced this will cost you up to
£120 (not bad for a printer that costs £60 NOT!!!)
The simple way is to spend £25 and buy your own replacement pads if you are up to taking the printer apart, see service manual this is hard to get hold of as are these instructions !!!!
In the mean time you can RESET this purge count back to zero using the MAINTENANCE 80 menu, to continue using the printer for a while until you get the new pads. But it on a tray as if they are full they may start to leak onto your desk....
1 . Press (MENU) (MONO START) then (^) OR <the up arrow> four times, the Photo Capture and Red Exclamation Lights will then flash.
2. Press (^) eight times until you see <8> then press (SET)
3. Press (^) twice until you see <0> then press (SET)
You will now be in MAINTENANCE 80.
4. Press the (MONO START) its a toggle until you see PURGE:6451 ( I guess this means you have cleaned the heads over 6,450 times their threshold level.) you will need to enter the code <2783> to RESET it.
5. Press (^) twice until you see < 2 > then press (SET)
5. Press (^) eight times until you see < 7 > then press (SET)
5. Press (^) nine times until you see < 8 > then press (SET)
5. Press (^) four times until you see < 3 > then press (SET)
The Printer will beep then reset counter will be at ZERO <0000000>
You can also RESET using the <2783> If you press the wrong key you will see MACHINE ERROR 46 on the LCD.
