If your using anything other than brother ink it must be very compatible.
Generic ink will dry and clog the ink jets, I suggest you replace with brother cartridges and clean ,clean, clean. If problem exists you'll
have to get a ink syringe, some paper towels to place under the print head. Fill the syringe with hot! water and send just a little through each hole where the ink would go in from the cartridge. Be Very Careful not to inject to much justs enough to loosen the the dried ink and free the the jets. I take no responsibility if you get it wrong. I was able to correct the same problem with mine the same way and never used generic ink again. You can do it! and save on repair bills.
This is common problem with Brother Printers. I am going to assume you are using Non-Brother branded ink cartridges. Brother cartridges have a cleanser in the ink that most generic cartridges don't have. This in turn causes the jets to clog and not allow ink to pass through them. The fix is to go buy a couple of Brother cartridges and do a cleaning with those cartridges. You may spend some money doing this as a cleaning wastes a lot of ink, but it will clean the injection lines and fix the printer. You could also consider buying a new printer. I know this is not the answer you were looking for, but it is the true answer. I just bought a new printer due to this fact.
In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.
me too. Brother tech said bad printer head. cost of replacement (only when bad after one year and 3 month) the same value as a new printer.
so, I use it as scanner and telephone. but still not using the printer it comsume all the ink, so it asks you to put new ink in the printer..... waste of $$$$
Will trough it to the garbage!
There is a design reason why the print heads are changed when you change an ink cartridge is changed. The print head isn't made to be reused and the quality of your print will suffer at some point if you reuse the same print head 6 or 7 times. I would get new cartridges and be happy with the print quality that a new cartridges will bring.
