Re: can't print pic on glossy photo paper with brother...
First off thanks for using fixya.com
Secondly, it is very difficult to tell exactly which is the problem. I would however put most of my concern in the refill ink. Since it is from a third party and not recommended by the manufacturer this ink may be designed for regular paper only. Ink that is used for photos has a quicker dry time to keep it from running. Since your ink is running it may be that the ink is not designed for photos paper.
You may also be able to drop down your print quality, this will use less ink and may dry faster. This can be access by going into your print settings before printing a photo. With what I have seen in the past, switching over to a manufacturer recommended ink cartridge will probably fix your problem.
I hope this helps you out, but feel free to ask further if needed. Jei

You must use HP branded glossy paper in this particular printer as recommended by the manufacturer. Because HP ink is much finer than most other inkjet printers, the ink sometimes does not set in properly on generic papers, especially glossy ones, and can smear right off.
Try new paper and get back to me. If you have any other questions, please

Hi, this printer is "clever" in that you don't adjust the thickness setting it does it itself.
It does this based on the paper type you set in the printer properties, see the table below for the different types of paper it will accept & the setting you need to use.
For this paper
Select this paper type setting

Envelope Hope this is of help.
If you use Photo Glossy Paper, you have to put at least two sheets of paper. If you read the photo glossy paper instructions that came in the package you will see it.
The package brings one sheet more than mentioned because of this specification.
What I ended up doing is wrapping a piece of old sheet aroung my finger and put it into the far left side of the part, that is mentioned in the cleaning directions in my book,. under "cleaning the machine printer platen." After turning the machine off first, I got gobs of the waste ink (several times) doing it that way. Then I took the ink damaged glossy photo paper, and ran that through the printer with just a small image for printing. It seemed to not pick up any more ink on the edges. I hope this helps someone else.
You must run a clean cycle after installing a new cartridge.
Try running a clean cycle and see if that relieves the problem. I just had the same problem on a MFC 210C and called Brother. That is what they had me do and now it is working fine.
