I'm afraid there is no simple solution to this problem.
Error codes 50 and 51 refer to problems with the purging mechanism - some of the whirring and clicking noises you hear when the machine self cleans or starts up are it purging ink from the print head. Through some very clever mechanics, the machine uses the paper feed motor (running in the opposite direction to normal) to perform purging.
Possible causes listed in the Brother Service Manual for this error code range from "simple" things like a misaligned cam, to complex problems with the main control board. However, whatever it is, dismantling these machines isn't staright forward and parts are very diffciult to obtain and very, very expensive, so much so that 99 times out of a 100, it isn't cost effective to repair.
You could approach a Brother service agent, but it's highly probably that they will charge you more than buying an equivalent brand new machine.
Sorry.

Unable to clean 46 error for a brother DCP-330C printer


Error "unable to clean" on Brother MFC Hi there

Solution:
· Machine off
· Switch on the machine while holding down the “menu”button until all the leds are flashing on/off. Now you are in “maintenance” mode.
· Press 80
· Press the “mono start” button several times until you see “purge: xxxx”
· Press “2783” in order to reset the purge counter. You will see: “purge:0000”
· Press the "stop" button.
· Press “99” to exit the maintenance mode.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Want the reset info for g46 unable to clean .dcp-330c .and would it be better to clean the waste pad as well?cheers.


Cleaning won't help as it's a counter that sets the error. It's a sealed plastic box that needs to be replaced and then reset thru service mode.Brother only gives the reset codes to authorized service centers.
