Brother MFC-420N : Color Problems

I inherited this MFC-420N combo printer. All of a sudden, it won't print color correctly. I have a graphic that is supposed to print in Royal Blue and it prints out in Teal Green. Anyone have an idea on how to correct this ? Also, the printer reports a "low black ink cartridge" when I have a brand new on in it.

Re: Brother MFC-420N : Color Problems

You need to start the ink cartridge changing procedure over. Try unplugging the machine for a few minutes.(from the wall and the computer) Then try the ink change over...If that doesn't work don't waste time. Download and install the latest drivers for your printer. Uninstall then reinstall with newer drivers. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim

You need to call Brother at 1-877-brother and tell them your mfc is "missing black". They will tell you where to take it to get the print head replaced under Brothers' warranty. This is a VERY common problem and Brother will cover the cost to repair it.

If you haven't been able to get the printer to print correctly after that many cleanings, it will have to be taken to a repair center for corrective maintenance. I service Brother products and you more than likely have an issue with the cleaning assembly. You can find a local authorized repair center at this link
