    I have the same problem with CYAN blue. I have followed the manual meticulously. I have gone through the head cleaning exercise X 4 and then the ink replacement process three times. The last time I replaced all the inks, but still the blue will not print.



    has anyone any thoughts?

    I just replace the black and the color cartridge in my d135, but the magenta isn't printing. I've cleaned the printheads twice, but still no magenta. Anyone been able to fix this problem?

What you have to do is flush the head externally, then get an eye droper remove the plastic spout ,now you will only have the rubber resivoir. squese the rubber and place over the print head . when you release the rubber your creating a vacume wich will draw out the dried ink. repeat about 5 times on the entire head then flush with cartridge flush .....pretty messy so have lots of tissue paper and gloves.

reasemle head and case run the cleaning process 3 times and you will be smiling.

ps make sure you have lots of ink in your cartridge or you will have to redo the process again.....good luck

Brother DCP-350C magenta ink won't clean and print quality check shows multiple visible gaps


You have a blockage in the print head and/or feed line from the ink cartridge to the print head. One possible fix would be to make a pad of paper kitchen towel wet it and sit the print head on it overnight. With luck the pad will soak the blockage and draw ink through the head. Give the machine two self cleans and try a print quality test to see if you have made ANY improvement. If no improvement - forget it as the blockage has been there too long.

Brother DCP-135C Every time I switch on the printer, I get "Cleaning Cleaning Cleaning" for about 4 or 5 minutes before I can print anything. It's driving me potty. Is there a fix for this before I chuck...


try these options below....
turn on/off, unplug, plug in2_bing.gif, should reset configs.

take all the paper out, put half as much back in.
check the rollers to make sure no paper or particles are stuck.

go to applications folder for your computer, dbl click printer icon for make of printer. check settings. print 'test document and clean cartridge heads', this should ensure proper printing formats. another thing might be that you have to leave the printer on at all times, have you've tried this? i have known printers to be this way, not so sure with your brand though.

lastly, go to web site of printer model and check site for trouble shooting if this does not work above.
hope this helps and good luck

The colour on my Brother 135C Printer is not printing properley, could it be that the printer heads need aligning? If so how do I do that? Regards, David Melton


I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck

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

Using far too much ink


This came from brothers website:

The Yellow ink cartridge yield is up to 300 pages @ 600 x 150 dpi when printing at 5% coverage on A4 sized paper.
The Magenta ink cartridge yield is up to 300 pages @ 600 x 150 dpi when printing at 5% coverage on A4 sized paper.
The Cyan ink cartridge yield is up to 300 pages @ 600 x 150 dpi when printing at 5% coverage on A4 sized paper.
The Black ink cartridge yield is up to 350 pages @ 600 x 150 dpi when printing at 5% coverage on A4 sized paper.

so it appears that what you are experiencing is not normal and you may have a leaking printer.

There is one thing you can check though, everytime you print, make sure that you are not printing at the highest quality option selectable as this almost certainly will fire out more ink than regular printing... choose a middle quality option or even draft option if you will be printing regular text.
