Re: unable to clean
Waistinktank is full.
You have to replace the tank by a new one and to reset the maintenance menue. Search google for error 46.
Warning! Do not only reset the maintenance menue without changing the tank! Ink will flow into the printer!

This is the space in your machine that will store all the ink that is used in cleaning the printhead. Once this is full the only way to continue printing is reset the Purge Counter and clean out the Waste Ink Station. If you do the reset and not he cleaning of the waste ink station you will eventually end up with the waste ink tank overflowing and leaving a huge mess to clean up. If you clean out the tank but not reset the purge counter it won't work till then.
Unless you are satisfied with your ability to dismantle and reassemble your printer you may want to just replace it as it can take some time and causes alot of mess.
try to remove all the cartridges from your printer
and turn it off for a while. Then turn it on and refit the cartridges.
You may have to try a few times before the problem is solved.. for
further information try this link.
If above steps you already tried then follow the link below.
This msg indicates that the Waste Ink pad is full in your printer, you
will need to reset the waste ink counter and replace the waste ink pad
inside... to reset the counter, Turn Off your printer first... then
while holding the Menu button, switch ON the printer and release the
button when you see the word Maintainence ... then enter 80 using the
number pad and press OK. Press the Start button until the word Purge
appear on the screen... then press number 2 7 8 3 ... to exit..
press 9 9 and then switch off and on back your unit.. this will reset
your printer but it's better to have the pad replaced to avoid leakage.
E-02 is an ink cartridge error, possible causes incude faulty ink cartridge chip, incorrectly installed cartridge, dirty contacts, ribbon cable not fitted correctly to carriage or faulty CSIC board in the carriage.
Your first step would be to remove all of the cartridges and clean the contacts and cartridge chips with contact cleaner or alcohol wipes. Refit cartridges ensuring that they all click into place and check the ribbon cable into the carriage is secure.

OK, remove the two screws at the back of the L/H cover and the two near the bottom on the L/H side. Remove the screw holding the small main board cover and remove it and the Fuser cover (top rear cover). Open the front cover, paper tray cover and top cover. Ease the bottom half of the L/H cover away from the printer about half an inch and lift it upwards, you may have to ease the "holding tabs" at the top of the cover. Once the cover is off the Voltage supply board is the big one in front of the main board metal case. Take a good note of where all the connectors go (a digital camera comes in handy here) and unplug all of them. Remove the 6 screws holding the board and remove it. You will now see a round plastic "bung" and just above it is a bracket which holds the sensor. Remove the bracket screws and remove. Clean the sensor and check for continuity in the wiring. Refitting is straight forward reversal of above. If problem persists then the MCU board is suspect and may require replacing. Hope this helps & good luck.
Waste ink pads are most likely full. If you are keen on the device you will need to strip it down, remove and clean the waste ink pads located in a chamber just behind the cartridge chamber, refit the pads and re-assemble the machine. Then you will need to go to google or similar search engine and locate the purge reset key code sequence for your machine. When you have done all that your machine will PROBABLY work - but no guarantee :-)
