My printer has been a big pain forever.It's only four years old. I use ink from an "inkstore" on-line, which I have been using forever, so I doubt that's it. But I just bought 2 boxes of ink and had I not done so, I would throw my printer as far out the window as I can! Any help for me? Thanks so much

What happens if you try cleaning the heads not the standard once, but at least four times in a row without doing anything else in between, please? Don't try a test, don't switch off; just run the cleaning routine at least four times in straight row. (Sorry that might use a lot of ink)
Some, particularly smaller printers don't really like being left more than two or three weeks without printing and it could help to print even just a small test image every fortnight or so. (Again, sorry that uses ink)
Hi Geoff, geez is been a while since i worked on a 110..... we were forever replacing heads on these under warranty from them getting stuffed from dodgy inks letting air in ink lines...
Chances are the head is requiring replacement which is not economicial to do, please ensure you using a full genuinne yellow brother ink and try to do a initial purge on the head ( i think from memory its..menu * 2, 8, 6, 4 then 76 enter, and 4 enter/ok ((init purge/all)), this will chew ink but fills the head and ink lines.
If it still fails the head is broken, it is like a micro toaster element and the ink keeps element cool, if air gets in the ink line the head overheads and the element breaks in any of the four colour chambers. This is not a repairable part nor is it cheap or easy to replace and also requires programming and a purge of about 1/4 of each colour ink.
Please let me know if you can do a purge and what brand inks you are using and what inks and what happened prior to the yellow issue. Cheers
unplug the power cord from the outlet and wait 3 or 4 minutes.
Plug it back in and choose the alignment program.
a sheet of paper will print out a series of lines and etc.
once finished , the printer cartridge is alligned properly and will print nice and clear.
We once had a business jet that would not print because our ink had expired lol...
The printer wont work because it know's that the old cart has no ink. And since it needs all three colors along with black to print it will not do it, Usually you can set the printer to print only black under properties or print settings.
Other then that you will need another cartridge. You can also try one more thing. If you need to print in a Pinch, down on the right hand part of your screen, Is the clock. Double click it and change the date back a year from today and see if that helps you print
You have committed the cardinal sin of inkjet printers, lack of use. The printer responds by letting the ink dry up in the feeder tubes and the printhead nozzels. While it is possible to repair, time and dollars and cents (sense) say "Hey, it's time to buy a new printer! Next time, if possible, print at least 1 page a couple of times a month. A pain, but it works.
Usually hairs sticking to the underside of the print head causes this.
I gave a solution to an Epson CX6400 user who needed to physically clean his print head. Look this up in the solutions. It involves using folded kitchen roll under the print head with the printer switched off and the head unlocked and free floating.
It would take me ages to type this again so please look this up.
The user had jammed paper and cleared the jam but had paper stuch to the underside of his print head.
In to the bin if you want your printer to live out it's short life span
No Joke this stuff causes so many expensive problems, it will ruin your print head ........even more so on this Brother release than most inkjet printers, not a good idea but what the heck, I warned ya, In the little ink carts that you put in machine that are were full of specially designed microscopic mixture of ink, cleaning products and solvents to enable printing without blockage, stick a hole in each one and shove that playschool ink that is not designed and made for use in precision equipment into them, machine will work fine even great for a while, until the long ink lines that carry the injected poison ink reach the print head and block it forever!
When you don't use your printer for a while the ink in the printheads tend to dry out, causing problems just like this! Some printheads are built into the cartridges others are in the tray that hold that cartridges, i'm not too sure how that specific Brother model printer does it!
But what you can do is try cleaning the print head(with the built in utility) several times or take it to someone to service the printer!
Trying some new ink cartridges might do the trick!
