Tip & How-To about Office Equipment & Supplies
Your printer does not print certain colors or does not print completely. Well,
this is a common problem with people who purchase Brother printers, but
do not always use Brother Ink Cartridges. Brother has a cleaning agent
in the print cartridge and the compatibles do not.
"If you have a lack of one (or more) color do the following:
Make sure all carts are full, placed well and are secured. Insert a new ORIGINAL BROTHER CART for the one that shows no color.
Press menu then start bk-copy then four times arrow up quick after another. machine will switch into maintenance mode and all lights will flash. Press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk-copy. machine will initialize the carts and refresh ink within tubes and print head. After that it does some power cleaning. When finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk-copy. machine will run a power purge. when finished press 9 then 9 to leave the maintenance mode. do run a quality test print.
This should clean the lines out and clear up your issue.
