Question about Brother MFC-5460CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
OK: Lets give you a hand and an advice, if you dont mind:
brother uses DYE-ink for C/Y/M which contains an amount of glycerol and some cleaning fluids:
I guess you run 100ml ink boxes (so you might do a math operation ;-) for your amount needed)
Use 25 ml of glycerol (85%- glycerin alc from drugstore) and mix it with 75ml of dye ink very well.
Use 5ml glcerol and 95ml of ink for BK. This has to be shaken very well, because BK ink contains of diffrent chemiclas than Y/M/C.
Now the hand:
Make sure the CIS is placed well in place at printer side (and some how secured).
press menu then start bk-copy then fourtimes arrow-up quickly after another. machine will turn to maintenance mode (light will flash).
press 7 -6 -4 and then start bk-copy.
Machine will initialize the "carts", refresh ink in tubes and ph and delete all air which might be within the ink system (this could be the reason why you cant print mag!). It runs an extra power cleaning, too.
When finished, press 7 -6 -3 then start bk copy to do a power purge.
When finished press 9 then 9 to leave the maintenance mode. machine comes up in normal state.
Do run a test print and check all squares.
If you cant see any mag the ph is definitly clogged and needs replacemnet (brother ph techniques cant be cleaned by fluids or outside the system! So dont waist your money on cleaning carts which wont work!)
