“Clean Unable” Error on Brother Inkjet Printers

To clear the error message that includes the words “Clean Unable”:

· Turn the machine off
· Switch on the machine while holding down the “menu” button until all of the LEDs are flashing.

Now you are in “maintenance” mode.

· Press 80
· Press the “mono start” button to scroll through various options until you see “purge: xxxx”
· Press “2783” to reset the purge counter.

You will now see: “purge:0000”

· Press the “stop” button.
· Press “99” to exit the maintenance mode.

Caution: its possible that the printer may leak ink if you’re a high volume user and the ink reservoir fills faster than the ink can evaporate. The purge reservoir can be cleaned out but it requires stripping down of the printer.
