The proper reset code sequence to reset DCP printers without numeric keypad should be as follows:

1. press buttons OK, Menu, Mono Start one by one, followed by up arrow key four times. this should all be done as short a time as possible, around 3 seconds.

2. enter maintenance mode 80 by pressing the up/down arrow key and set key to select numbers 8 and 0

3. press blue MONO start button to select PURGE which requires it to be pressed a number of times before PURGE appears on the LCD screen of the printer

4. then use the up'down key and OK button to enter the reset code 2, 7, 8 and 3 keys to reset the counter : Note this does not overwrite the number next to PURGE on the LCD screen but once the last number is added it gets reset to 0000

5. press Stop/Exit key to go to root of maintenance mode

6. enter 9,9 to exit maintenance mode

When power on printer DCP 135C an error disply as clean unable 46.see troubleshooting and routine maintence chapter in user guide

I've run into this error before, and basically it means something is stopping the carriage from moving.
If you are unable to find out what is causing the carriage to not move, the printer is not economically feasible to repair and will need to be replaced.

Clean unable 46

46 says the ink absorber box and flushing box are full, you need a shop to replace these and reset the counters. It's possible to just reset the error but you risk printer damage if they overflow.
