Question about Brother MFC 240C All-In-One InkJet Printer

Magenta goes bad

We are on our 2nd of these printers and my mom bought one at the same time and we have had problems with the magenta. It quits printing the magenta. Our new one started to only print the lower half in the test print. It gives us the magenta in stripes with the top half missing when printing a solid block of magenta. Help! This is the 5th printer between my mom and I that has had problems with the magenta!

2. Print a diagnostic page and clean print heads, using the printer cleaning utility:
Color Mix or Missing Colors on the Diagnostic Page
Repeat if needed.

The ink should come out of the cart. if not the cart is the problem at this point try anothere magenta if that does not shore it up then you need to then start looking at the print head where it goes it itself now the store you bought the ink from will give you a replacement no questions asked sometimes even if you dont got the reciept. Try those steps you be glad you did.

HP D135 - replaced printhead - still doesn't print in that color


try this link : I followed the directions and fixed the problem. the instructions that came with the new printhead weren't really complete.

Here's essentially all I did for my fix - Opened the printer top, turned the printer off. Removed the "bad" printhead, cleaned the metal contacts on the printhead and printer with windex. Closed the printer. Turned it on. waited for it to reset. Opened the printer. Turned the printer off again. Installed the printhead. Closed the lid. Plugged the printer in again. When it was ready I accessed the HP toolbox and alligned the printheads and cleaned the printheads. It worked. Here's a link with photos.
