Head cleaning everytime printer is switched on

I have recently bought a Brother DCP-135C all in one printer, scanner, copier. I am very happy with it apart from, everytime I switch the printer on it goes through the process of cleaning the heads, which is using lots of ink. Is there anyway to prevent the machine from doing this. I have had a look in the manual but can't find anything. It's not possible for me to leave the machine switched on.

    this is really annoying, apart from expensive ink being wasted it takes time to clean up. There must be some way to stop this.

Hi janebobscott,

Try this, completely remove printer and printer software from your computer. Reboot, use installation cd and reinstall software. Watch very closely the options they give you. It may be you choose to head clean at start up. If your software came with a desktop management utility check this first for options you can change. I hope this helped a little, if not, hit me back, we have other options i.e. software conflicts from previous printer installs.

Thanks for using FixYa.com

Sincerely, cyyyd7

I have a brother DCP-135C with a printer jam. I followed the instructions in the user guide and believe I have removed all the paper but still get the paper jam message. When I unplug then plug it back in...


for this model, normally the paper is stuck behind., you can open the rear part of the printer and check if there is any paper stuck there.
lift up the scanner unit and switch on the printer, does the sound come from the print head side, it could be due to the print head getting stuck... the encoder belt might be damaged...

I have a brother DCP-135c printer. the magenta ink not printing


The process to get to the print head will take you approx. 1 hour. Without being trained on it, there is a high failure rate upon completion.

The Scanner assembly needs to be taken off. Harness Cables for the Scanner need to be removed.The Upper Case Assembly needs to be taken off. Printhead casing and printhead tubing calbes need to be removed, printhead mainboard needs to be removed, and then you have access to the printhead.

Thanks

Brother DCP vs MFC


i was came into this as well when looking to buy a printer. after doing some research, from what i can tell the MFC printer/scanners have fax capabilites where the DCP do not. there might be a few other functions the MFC's have the DCP's don't, but Fax is the big seller
DCP stands for Digital Copier/Printer MFC stands for Multi-Function Copier/printer
here's a copmarison of two dcp's against comparable mfc's on newegg with full spec list
