Press "menu" "black start" and "up arrow 4 times".
that gets you into maint. mode to be able to reset purge counter.
next enter code "80" by pressing up/down arrows and pressing "ok".
press "black start" several times until you see "purge count".
now press "2783" and "ok" to reset purge count.
then press "black start" about three more times or until you see flushing count. again, press "2783" and "ok" to reset. now hit "stop/clear" a couple of times and press "99" to exit or use arrows to get to "99" . at this point, you may have to press "ok" to get out of maint. mode, but i think once you press 99 it backs out automatically. next time this comes up however, you will need to have your ink absorber box and flushing box replaced.

Error message reads "unable to


It means that the printer is unable to clean the print head number(s) 46. The print head is located under the ink cartridges. Remove the cartridges, and you should see a plastic piece with a hole in it to put your finger under and snap open. This allows you to see the print heads. The print heads look like a sponge type dabber on top of a plastic case. Grab a hold of the print head and pull it out. Look for ink that has spilled behind it or on any of the brass colored computer connections. use warm water and a lint free cloth to scrub it off. Press the print head sponge with your finger and make sure that ink primes and fills the head then put the printer back together and try a test page. If you stll get the error then you need to contact brother for a print head replacement.

Hi I have Brother dcp 350 printer. I have the error 46 unable to print/clean i cant get the printer back to normal functions. I have change the inks (all) and I am still get the same error message 46....


The messages unable to print, unable to clean, unable 36, error 46 and error 32 are all print head errors.

1. Remove all the ink cartridges from the machine
2. Clean the contacts on the cartridges as well as inside the machine itself with a small amount of warm water or alcohol on a cotton swab until no ink comes off on the swab.

Note: if any of the other cartridges are low, empty, leaking or bulging replace them

3. Then turn off the machine and unplug it for 70 seconds
4. Plug it back it and wait for the insert cartridges message
5. Insert the cartridges and check to see if the problem is still there. If it is it means the print head has failed and in order to fix this the print head inside the printer needs to be replaced. The print head is the part of the printer that puts ink from the cartridges onto the page

Unfortunately this can sometimes cost more to replace then the machine itself.
