Take out the cartriges and hold one at a time between your forefinger and thumb tightly. Hit your wrists together and see if ink comes out the bottom of the cartrige. Be careful not to mess ink on your clothes or carpet etc. This sharp "shock" will bleed the cartrige and hopefully the cartrige will work. Clean all messed ink from any contacts and the jet area of the cartrige before inserting back into the plotter.

Printer prints test page and direct prints fine but anything sent from the PC only prints (at most) a thin line (about 2cm/1in) on the left side of the page.


Well, if it ran okay with Windows 8.1 until the last month and if it prints a test page ok, the problem is unlikely to be drum wear or wear of internal parts. You sometimes encounter weird streaking effects if the windows are not clean. Normally, if only one side of a page is being printed, parts are worn or the drum need replacing. But your test page prints out. The only thing I can see that would have changed is --Ta da! -- some automatic update by Windows 8.1. Re-installing drivers doesn't really undo any changes in Windows 8.1 itself or whatever you have installed in the last month or so. (Windows 8.1 experts can stop laughing--I am simply making an educated guess.)

If this were a home setup rather than a work computer, I might see what would happen if I returned the computer to a state prior to "the last month or so." If the printer then worked, you would know it was not a hardware problem but rather what had been installed on the computer after that. Is the printer actually using the Brother driver or is it deferring to a Microsoft driver? Just something for you to check in your device manager. If returning the computer to a former state fixes the problem, you may have to test subsequent installations to determine which one troubles the printer, a tedious process unless a candidate springs to mind.

Printing very light


Try performing a stop test. Send a test page and turn it off mid print. Retrieve the page from the printer to see if the image is readable before it went through the fuser. If so the the fuser may need to be replaced.

I have a Brother 5240 printer. The toner light


Try this... it reads the level of the toner and can become faulty. This clears it.
1: Turn off power and remove toner/drum
2: Tape the little spring loaded lever just inside the printer on the upper left hand side in the *DOWN* position! Do not replace drum yet and...
3: Turn power on to printer and let it cycle. Status/Toner lights will come on as usual.
4: Turn off printer, remove tape from lever, replace drum and turn back on.

Power went out last week. Can't print. The jobs


OK try this Remove Power Cord from Printer, remove USB cable from PC. Reboot PC. Wait 10 mins, then connect, the Power again to printer. Turn OFF PC. While OFF plug in the USB cable TO any other USB other than the one used before. Turn PC ON. After a bit you should hopefully have a working printer. If that doesn't work, Unplug USB, reboot & then using your DVD re-install it all again.

G600 printer dock used about 6 months ago. Only


Yes, maybe the ink dry out. Try a deep cleaning several times, from the printer options.
If you don't use the printer, you should weekly print a test page to avoid this problem.

Lexmark Z517 wont print black ink


I have a z600 that i use. If not used for about a month the ink does clog the print nozzles and eventually ink cartridge does dry out. To avoid this even if i dont have to print anything I run a diagnostics test that prints out a nozzle aligment test every two weeks.The great thing about this is that it uses very little ink.You can find this test in your software that was provided by Lexmark. This will keep your nozzles cleaned and you will notice this helps extend the life of your cartridge.
