My Brother MFC440CN printer has an ink absorber problem. Before it was telling me the error message "Unable to clean - 46".
I emailed Brother who replied that this means the ink absorber needs replacing.
As the machine is no longer under warranty, I think I'd have to get this fixed at my own expense or get a new printer.
My question is: Am I able to fix this problem myself (being a layperson) rather than forking out $150 for a new printer?
I called one Brother service agent and they quoted $140/hr for labour.
If I cannot fix this myself, what new printer would you recommend for my customer needs (for faxing, printing out from computer, scanning)? Of course the new printer needs to have very good service for the years following purchase. I am really unhappy with Brother for this situation.
Thanks in advance,
