You have to set the letter size to a small setting or better is to use the letter size "auto". This way two line printing works perfectly.

  • Find the "Ink" key on your Brother printer. This key also may be labeled "Ink/Reports," "Ink Management/Reports" or "Ink Management." Press the key to bring up the menu on the LCD display.

  • Step 2Select the "Cleaning" option by using the up and down navigation key. Press "Menu/Set."

  • Find the color on the displayed list that's not printing on your Brother printer by using the navigation key. If more than one color isn't printing, select the "All" option. Press "Menu/Set."

    Step 4Wait for the printer to complete the cleaning cycle, which involves cleaning the print head nozzle. During this time, the LCD will display the words "Cleaning" and "Please Wait." The date and time will return to the LCD display when the printer is done cleaning.

    Unable to clean 46. this error display in lcd of brother dcp585cw printer. how to solve me this problem.


    Machine Error 46 - Purged Ink Box Full MFC620CN/420CN/410CN/210C and FAX2440C

    The machine counts all purge (cleaning) operations in order to prevent the internal ink absorber box from overflowing with purged ink. An "initial purge", for example, advances the purge counter by 187 + 420 = 607. When the purge counter approaches 6400, an internal "Machine Error 46" is generated. Further purge operations are prohibited, and therefore the printer becomes unuseable.

    When an internal Machine Error 46 is generated, the user will see an "Unable to Clean" external message and will be unable to use the printer. The "Unable to Clean" external message can relate to many different internal error codes however.

    The user can establish the internal Machine Error Code as follows: pull the mains cable out of the machine (power off), hold down the Menu/Set key, re-insert the mains cable into the machine (power on). The internal Machine Error Code will be displayed.

    If there is a Machine Error 46, it is necessary to dismantle the printer, replace the ink absorber box (or possibly break the ink absorber box open and clean its absorbent sponges under a tap), re-assemble the printer and reset the purge counter to zero.


    Resetting purge counter MFC620CN/420CN/410CN/210C and FAX2440C

    1) Enter machine maintenance mode (on MFC210C all four photo/copy/fax/scan lights flash in maintenance mode). Care is needed in maintenance mode, otherwise critical settings may be inadvertently corrupted.

    FAX models with numerical keypads: Press the Menu/Set, *, 2, 8, 6 and 4 keys within two seconds. (if you fail to complete the correct key sequence within two seconds, press the Stop key to try again).

    Other (non-FAX) models: Press the Menu/Set and Black Start keys. Next press the "up arrow" key four times to enter the maintenance mode).

    2) Press the 8 then 0 keys in the initial stage of the maintenance mode to call up the machine's log information list (function code 80).

    3) Press the Black Start key several times to scroll through the log information list to reach the purge counter. The purge counter is the 25th item in the list.

    4) Press the 2, 7, 8, and 3 keys in this order to reset the purge count to zero.

    5) Press the Stop/Exit key to return to the initial stage of the maintenance mode.

    6) Press the 9 key twice to return to the standby state.

    CHR SIZE AUTO?


    Press the Return button and the machine will automatically print the size the tape will allow! :) Title:
    What does the error message "CHR SIZE AUTO?" mean? Description:This message appears when the selected character size is too large for the width of the tape cassette installed.

    You have the following options:

    • Press the "Print" or "Return" key to allow the P-touch machine to automatically select the maximum character size that fits the tape width.

    • Press the "BS" key to clear the message, and then install a wider tape cassette.

    • Press the "BS" key to clear the message, and then select a smaller character size by following these steps:

      1. While holding the "Code" key, press the "Size" key. The display will show the current character size.

      2. Keep the "Code" key held, and press the "Size" key until the desired size is displayed.
        If you select "AUTO", the P-touch machine will automatically adjust the character size to the largest possible size.

      3. Release the "Code" to apply the setting.


    If you have the correct size tape installed and still get the error message, please try removing the cassette from the machine and reinstalling it. Also, check that the tape cassette is seated firmly in the compartment.


    Note
      The following table shows the maximum character size that can be used with each tape width.

      Tape Width Maximum Character Size 1/4" (6 mm) 12 points 3/8" (9 mm) 18 points 1/2" (12 mm) 24 points 3/4" (18 mm) 42 points

    Need to reset purge counter due to error 46


    MFC-5440CN saved from the tip!
    "Unable to Clean" message - found TrickyDicky's sltn 4 for various printers.
    Went into maint mode as per sltn 4 - verified error 46.
    "The user can establish the internal Machine Error Code as follows: pull the mains cable out of the machine (power off), hold down the Menu/Set key, re-insert the mains cable into the machine (power on). The internal Machine Error Code will be displayed."

    Keyed in 80 - stepped through the items with "down" key and located Purge Counter.
    "Press the 2, 7, 8, and 3 keys in this order to reset the purge count to zero
    Press the Stop/Exit key to return to the initial stage of the maintenance mode.
    Press the 9 key twice to return to the standby state."


    This worked brilliantly - no need to tamper with any parts of the printer. Purge Counter reset did it all. Fully functional printer.

    Thanks TrickyDicky for info on verifying the error code and purge reset
