Question about Brother MFC-5840CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
I know this is not the first time someone has posted with the problem of one of the colors not printing after replacing the cartridge.Mine happaens to be black and I have gone through the power flush mode at least eight times and still no luck getting black to print.Question is,can the individual jets be removed and cleaned/replaced individually?If so,anyone have instructions on how to do so?
I have been using the mehtod of loading an empty black cartridge with amonia that was mentioned in a previous post and have recovered some use of my black cartridge. I loaded and empy one with amonina water (half and half), ran several cleaning cycles, and then just left it in there for days. Every time I thought about it or passed by it I would run another cycle. Finally I put my black cartride back in and again ran several cycles and left it in. Again every time I thought about it or passed by it I would run another cycle. I finally started doing test prints and I'm now up to 3 1/2 lines back on my black and some blurred words, but its printing. Maybe after a few more I might get full use back. Give this method a try, especially if you've got nothing to loose. Good luck.

No, they cannot be cleaned once you lose the color completely. You'll need to replace the head.
