My brother printer in printing blurry?

I have a new brother printer (MFC-240C) and it is printing blurry. It was just fine the first several times I used it, now it is printing out blurry. I really have no clue on what to do here. I tried checking the printer to see if anything was wrong with it but I really didn't know what the hell I was looking for? Anybody know...??? I'm sure it's something simple just cant figure it out? Thanks

I have bro-420C. Same problem. I used the option Ink. There is "cleaning" option. It helped to make it much better.

My best guess is that the cartriges need the heads to be cleaned. Try going to the printers and faxes in your start menu and double cliking on the printer and see if there is a tools tab. If not right-click on the printer and go into properties and see if there is a troubleshooting or tools tab and there should be an option to clean or align the heads.

Cant print anything after replacing ink cartidges for brother 240c


If the printer has been sitting without use for a long time you may need a new printhead, if you just changed inks it could be just an air bubble in the ink tubes. If after several cleaning cycles you don't see any improvement, it's the printhead and not just a bubble.

I have a Brother MFC 240C printer that will not print black ink. I just changed all the cartridges. All the other cartridges print. I ran the clean cycle many times. No error messages just blank paper.


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 mfc-240c - will not print yellow


The print head is clogged.If not unclogging with cleaning process may you try to clean manualy.You need to dissasembly the hole printer to remove the print head.Put it in hot water.If you don't have a technical skills, don't try anything.
If not help just buy new printer, because the new print head will cost you as much more.

Cannot print blue/green colors.


I think your cartridge is defective, you need to replace a new cartridge.
