1. press the Menu & Mono start keys. next press the up arrow key 4 times to make the machine enter the maintenance mode.

2. Enter 8 & 0 by using the up arrow key & SET keys.

3. press the mono start key several times untill the purge count appears on the LCD.

4. enter 2 7 8 & 3 by using the up arrow key & set keys to reset the purge count to zero

5. press the stop/exit key to return to the initial stage of the maintanance mode.

6. enter 9 twice by using the up arrow & set key's to exit from maintenance mode

Works fine for a Brother DCP 315CN too!

I'm just curious: isn't is necessary to empty the ink absorber box, so it won't overflow?
I thought "Machine error 46" means "absorber box full".

I tried to follow the above procedure to reset the counter. I have a dcp-115c, too. Unortunately when I press the Menu & Mono start keys I enter the standard menu "1. Copy". What did I wrong?
Thanks in advance for any help.


Re: Brother DCP-110C waste counter reset by fishyink (2/20/08 8:31 PM) reply + / -
lol gmt68 you have to do it in sequence fairly fast, so go menu then mono then up 4 times in a row without stoping.

Sorted the problem for me streight away.


Re: Re: Brother DCP-110C waste counter reset by Mick.j (7/23/08 4:42 PM) reply + / -
Used for a DCP-315CN and cleared the status. Will have a go at soaking up some of the ink from the waste bin.
Thanks for this info, the Brother manual lists the status with no helpful info and nothing as far as I can find at the Brother site.
So many thanks.

Thank you!! It worked with my DCP-330C. I really appreciate your help.
Note. On my DCP-330C after step 5 the LCD went back to error 46. What I did was power "OFF" the unit then "ON" again, the unit returned to normal operation after that.

Regards,
Danny

this worked perfectly - i got a bit confused when it said enter the numbers 2, 7 etc but it must be some sort of default passcode. it worked perfectly after i switched off and back on

well done

Re: Brother DCP-117 black colour does'nt print by pierrefr (4/28/09 10:46 AM) reply + / -

Hi,

The only black head does'nt print, since the last change of ink cartridge (for a no name one. No way to make it work, despite several cleanings with the program.
Is there a handy way to access to the clogged nozzles and what liquid has to be used preferably.

I'll appreciate your assitance. Thanks a lot for it

I was getting 'unable to clean' on DCP-115C. Have reset the waste ink counter OK and got rid of that message. Now I am receiving 'failure to initialize'. All ink cartridges showing full. Feed pipes have some air in them after using a syringe with JR free flush on each cartridge connector to suck and blow to remove any head blockage. Head moves and motors whirl as though cleaning but ink is not moving through tubes. Can anyone suggest how to initialize printer and get ink flowing again please?



Re: Brother DCP-110C waste counter reset by JUB1L (1/24/10 9:12 AM) reply + / -
Have found the problem! the ribbon cable connecting the head was not pushed in correctly and had come loose when fitting the cover.

There was a link to the problem cited:-
http://www.brother-usa.com
but it is no longer a valid link



Re: Brother DCP-110C waste counter reset by JUB1L (1/25/10 10:24 AM) reply + / -
I have reset the waste ink counter, put black tape on fins of all cartridges and refilled them. All showed full. All was well for 2 sheets, then all 4 cartridges are showing as near empty on LCD also on software monitor program.

Whether or not they are near empty, how does the printer know with the light beam blocked? I have made filling holes on each cartridge (sealed with rubber plugs) so that I can refill without removing them. Doing this is not going to change the readout. How do I prevent them showing as empty after another few sheets and preventing printing. Anyone any suggestions please?

'Ink shots' are countered for the cleaning ink used. Are they also counted for each cartridge and reset when the cartridges are changed? If so, is there a proceedure for resetting them via the maintenance menu?

For Brother 330C, instead of step 2 you could try hitting the Mono start, select 80 then proceed to step 3

Fantastic Information. I have MFC 210C and I have to enter the same information but slightly different:

1. Press Menu and Black Start
2. Press up arrow 4 times
3. using number pad, enter 80 and press Menu/Set key
4. Press Black Start several times untill the purge count appears on the LCD.
5. enter 2783 using number pad and press Menu/Set key
5. Press Stop/Exit
6. Enter 99 using number tab and press Menu/Set key

Thanks to the original poster for this very usefull information.

Hello !
On my DCP-115C, I have the "Unable to init" message.
I tried to reset to 0000 the waste counter, using your help (thanks to all !).
I cut and put back the power... but the LCD still says "Unable to init".
What can I do, now ?


Re: Brother DCP-110C waste counter reset by dieepson (10/12/13 9:06 AM) reply + / -
I found out how to physically clean the sponge (DCP-J140w).

1. remove the square white sponge to the left side of the printer(it's ok if it rips)

2. replace it with a similar size piece of paper

3. replace that piece of paper with another when it starts to get soggy.
