Resolving Brother DCP 130C Printer with Unable to Clean 46 Error

Alhamdulillah, today finally managed to resolve our printer problem with a little help through the internet. It is amazing what information you can find on the web today. Thanks for sharing everybody.

Anyways, if you guys have a DCP 130C and facing an Unable to Clean error 46 problem than do the following;

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

1. press buttons Set, 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 up arrow key several times to get to the Purge* item

4. enter 2, 7, 8 and 3 using arrow/set keys to reset the counter

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

6. enter 9,9 to exit maintenance mode

* if you are having problem to get to Purge, do the following;
For item 2 use the up key to select 8 the press OK to enter it, then use the up key to select 0 and then the OK button to enter it too. Together this forms number 80 in maitenance mode. I found I had to use the 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. Once there use the up key and OK buttons to enter the reset code of 2783. 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. Exit the menu as per step 6 above.

Try it! You can SAVE MONEY & TIME!!!
