How to reset waste ink counter for Brother MFC-295CN

Your Brother MFC-295CN shows "Clean Unable 46" on the control panel display. Putting aside the strange English, here's how to reset the waste ink counter to remove said error message.
  1. Press Menu then Mono.
  2. Press Up four times. You should now be in maintenance mode.
  3. Press 8 0 then press Mono many times until you see "Purge: XXXXX". "XXXXX" should be showing a number.
  4. Press  2 7 8 3 to reset the purge counter to 00000.
  5. Press Exit then press 9 9 to exit maintenance mode.
That should do it.

These steps are based on instructions from this blog.
