Machine Error 46 indicates that the ink absorber pad is full and needs replacing. You will need an engineer to replace this.
If your machine is out of warranty, please contact Brother Customer Service:

SOURCE: Brother printer dcp-330c error 46

press "menu" "black start" and "up arrow 4 times". that gets you into maint. mode to be able to reset purge counter. next enter code "80" by pressing up/down arrows and pressing "ok". press "black start" several times until you see "purge count". now press "2783" and "ok" to reset purge count. then press "black start" about three more times or until you see flushing count. again, press "2783" and "ok" to reset. now hit "stop/clear" a couple of times and press "99" to exit or use arrows to get to "99" . at this point, you may have to press "ok" to get out of maint. mode, but i think once you press 99 it backs out automatically. next time this comes up however, you will need to have your ink absorber box and flushing box replaced.

hth,

take swabs and use alcohol to manually clean it...GENTLY and with not too much alcohol. You will go through several swabs. Use the foam swabs, not cotton, so you don't leave junk behind.

Error 70 normally is a paper jam or something else that is stopping your print head moving correctly.

Open the covers, have a look, and after clearing the jam you must power off and on the machine.

- Dirty encoder strip

- Foreign object, such as a paper clip or ripped piece of paper is stuck in the machine

- Mechanical malfunction


The most common cause of this issue is dirt on the encoder strip.

SOURCE: Brother DCP-165C gives error print

The error message "Print Unable 46" is an indication that the machines ink absorbers are almost full. The ink absorbers hold liquid and dried ink after it has been purged from the print head. These absorbers can control enough ink for the expected life of the machine.

There is a possibility that this message may have occurred in error. Upgrading the firmware of the Brother machine may resolve the issue. Follow the procedure below to determine if a firmware update is required:
-if the display screen is displaying an error message, press the STOP/EXIT key to change the LCD to the main screen.
-press the # and * key at the same time. The first 2 characters on the top row will determine the ROM version.

If the ROM version is OE or greater (example: OF, OG, OH, etc), the firmware does NOT need to be upgraded. If the ROM version is OA, OB, OC or OD, follow the procedure on this link to upgrade the firmware.

If the message "Print Unable 46" continues to appear on the display the Brother machine after completing the firmware upgrade and your machine is within warranty (even if it's not under warranty you have to do the same thing), you have to take it to a Brother Authorized Service Center. http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/us/us/en/faq/faq/000000/002600/000059/faq002659_000.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc290c_all&Cat=11

SOURCE: clean unable 46 error on dcp 135c brother printer

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
