Question about Brother MFC-990CW COLOR INK-JET MFC Ink Jet Printer
I Changed the Colour settings to Greyscale because I ran out of Yellow and It wouldn't print anything, Now since changing the Cartridges, (and changing the settings back to color) everything is coming out Dull, the Black is grey and the colors are very dull. I've changed the settings to vibrant and back again and I've done a clean and the black and color tests come out fine.

SOURCE: print quality is lousy
Something has become clogged. It's unlikely to be a driver problem etc... I would make the following suggestion. 1. You can buy ink refill kits (they'll also save you a lot of money). This kit usually includes a flushing fluid. Now with many printers if you change the cartridge, most printing problems go away... however it sounds like the part that hooks into the cartridge has become clogged. Try cleaning this out with the flushing fluid. YOu may be able to buy this fluid without the ink refill that normally comes with it. Not sure. It really does sound like the part that connects the cartridge and feeds the ink has become clogged. So cleaning this out should fix the problem. Some ink jet cartridges have the printer head built in and other don't; it's part of the printer hardware. If your's is part of the printer hardware then you'll need to flush this out with an ink flushing fluid as mentioned above. Basicly this type of problem usually occurs when you don't use the printer for an extended period of time and the ink dries causing a clog. This clog can not always be fixed by the cleaning cycle so you have to use ink flushing fluid. 2. Before doing this contact tech support for your printer. All though it is not in warranty many companies continue to give tech support for hardware products such as printers without additional charge. They may know exactly what the problem is and provide a solution that you can perform without sending it in for repair. If your printer's manufacture does not give tech support beyond the warranty period then tell them you need tech support for the ink cartridge you just bought (even if it's not thier brand, just tell them it is) ... and see what suggestions they give to resolve the problem... otherwise try the above solution. Best of luck. Sincerely, Dean Dean Kenneth Robinson [email protected]

Check the following thread, it might apply to your problem. and just as a printer can be fooled to show a low level ink, I guess it can happen the other way around. http://www.fixya.com/problems-solutions/t103191,p342983/Epson-Stylus-Photo-R300-InkJet-Printer.aspx Good luck

I bought the special cleaning cartridge as suggested and it worked very well. My RX620 is working like new!

The ink tanks may be full but sometimes the pins that connect the cartridges to the printer may have dried up ink on them preventing the ink from flowing. You can try to swab these with a bit of rubbing alcohol on a Qtip and letting it dry for moment or two. I would strongly suggest doing a couple of deep cleanings first and try test printing of the individual colours separately in a program such as paint to see which colour is affected.
