Brother MFC-J415W waste counter reset

When the control panel on your Brother MFC-J415W displays "Ink absorber near full", it's time to reset the waste counter.

Here's how:
  1. Press Menu followed by *2864 to go into Maintenance Mode.
  2. Press 80 then press Up/Down arrow until you see Purge: xxxxx. xxxxx is the purge counter value.
  3. Press 2783 to reset waste counter. You should see Purge: 00000.
  4. Press Exit followed by 99 to exit Maintenance Mode.

The printer should no longer display the error.
