Question about Brother DCP 115C All-In-One InkJet Printer

Brother DCP 150C

My printer is less than 3 months old. It was printing from my computer until recently. I now receive an error message unable to print. It seems the data is not getting from my computer to my printer. I have used the photocopy function on my printer and it prints okay. I have also done test prints and it works.

Do you have any suggestions on what the issued maybe?

Thanks

    My printer has the same message and I've tried uninstalling it and reinstalling but still doesn't print from the PC. Just keeps coming up with error message and can't print anything. Scaning and printing is okay.

Brother MFC-425CN...ERROR MESSAGE READS...UNABLE TO CLEAN...TRIED EVERYTHING IN MANUAL????? WILL NOT SCAN OR PRINT...OR TEST PRINT ETC ETC...


You need to contact brother regarding that error message. It simply means that your printer's purge counter is full and you just need to RESET it to ZERO. I already have a post regarding this "unable to clean" error but it is for Brother DCP-150C. I also got it from a Brother Tech Support. So I think the commands in my previous post is different since you've got a different model. Better ask a Brother Tech Support for the procedure in resetting the purge counter.

Anyway, this is the post, if the sequence is right for your device, then this will work:

1. To enter MAINTENANCE Mode: Press MENU, MONO START, 4X on ARROW UP. (within 2 seconds).
2. Using arrow up button look for the following:
a. 8 then press SET/OK
b. 0 then press SET/OK
3. Using MONO START, just press it until the word "PURGE XXXXX" comes out.
4. Using arrow up button look for the following:
a. 2 then press SET/OK
b. 7 then press SET/OK
a. 8 then press SET/OK
b. 3 then press SET/OK
This is to reset the purge counter. Then press stop/exit
5. Using arrow up button look for the following:
a. 0 then press SET/OK
b. 1 then press SET/OK (To reset unit)
a. 9 then press SET/OK
b. 9 then press SET/OK (To exit Maintenance mode)

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...
