Question about Brother MFC-465CN InkJet Printer

Brother mfc465-cn unable to init 49

When I turn the printer on, the menu screen comes up. Then it immediately switches to a screen that says "Receiving data"... followed by the message "Unable to Init. 49".

Once in this state, no button on the printer does anything except "Stop / Exit", which brings me back to the main menu for a minute. However, the "Unable to Init. 49" message inevitably returns.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

Thanks,

Lee.

Error 49 relates to the print head drive voltage. It may just need the flat ribbon cables that connect the head to the main pcb reseating, but equally it may need the print head replacing (most likely).
An outside chance that the main pcb will need replacing.

In theory, all of these jobs are a task for an engineer. Brother UK (0870 830 400) can pass you on to a repair agent.

Unable to init. 49


The 49 error code normally means ambient temperature too low. Is your printer in a very cold location? If so, try taking the printer to a warmer location and leaving for a few hours to warm all the components, then power on and try a nozzle (print quality) test from the maintenance menu.

My brother j220 displaying unable to init.49 how can i remove it


The machine has either a mechanical problem or there is something in the machine such as a paper clip or scrap paper.
open up machine and inspect it. use compressed air if needed to clean everything out. If this does not work then unplug for 5 minutes and then re-power on and see if it comes back if so you will need service on it.

Brother MFC-5440CN Unable to Clean error and may work for some others.


Hi you can try
This works with most Brother printers

Procedure how to reset the error 46 error (unable to clean). This can be done on every Brother inkjet machine with a numeric keypad.

- 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 “99” to exit the maintenance mode

Now you are able to print again, but actually your ink absorber box is now full with ink. Ink flooding can happen if you don’t replace this ink box


Also can try.

Reset code.
Press menu then*2864 within 2 seconds (maint should be on the display and all the lights should be flashing, if not try again) press 80
then keep pressing black/mono start button until screen displays ‘purge count’
press 2783 to reset purge count
press stop/exit key
press 99
machine should return to normal
