Question about Brother DCP-110C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Colors problem Hello, i have a following problem: two of four colors are missed on the printings. When i print color test page the magenta and blue patterns are printed partially. I tried to clean the color nozzles with the internal utility, but it didn't help. I activated it many times, but the patterns are still partial. Is it the hardware problem or some nozzles are still blocked ? Befot that the printer was about 2 monthes without usage.

When you don't use your printer for a while the ink in the printheads tend to dry out, causing problems just like this! Some printheads are built into the cartridges others are in the tray that hold that cartridges, i'm not too sure how that specific Brother model printer does it! But what you can do is try cleaning the print head(with the built in utility) several times or take it to someone to service the printer! Trying some new ink cartridges might do the trick! regards, babb

    1. First, check your cartridges. HP cannot guarantee the quality of remanufactured or refilled cartridges.
    2. Second, make sure your paper is not causing the problem. Paper that does not accept ink well can cause your images to smear or bleed. Plain paper is not the best choice for high-density graphics. Click here to see how to pick the best paper for your project .
    3. If the paper is not the problem and you are using genuine HP cartridges, print a clean test to see if the printer and cartridges are functioning properly. Load the printer with clean, plain, white paper and print a clean test page. To see how to print a clean test page, see your printer's User's Guide , or see HP Deskjet Printers - How To Print Internal Tests , or HP All-in-One Product Family - Printing Self-Test Reports .
    4. Evaluate the clean test page. Different printers produce different pages, but you should recognize elements from the examples below on your test page. In general, cartridge and printer problems are indicated by streaks, missing colors, or wrong colors.
      • Examples from a good printer and cartridges (your test page may not look exactly like this): Figure 1: Solid colors that match color dots on cartridge labelc00059224.gif Figure 2: Pattern unbroken, or broken in only a few placesc00059225.gif

    Colour problem


    If the printer gives magenta instead of red you have a problem with one of the other colors. Magenta needs other colors to print red. Print a cofiguration print and check witch color is bad or missing. Replace the cartrridge of the missing/bad color

    Colors are not printing the acutal color


    It all depends on the meaning of 'not properly'.

    Try creating a document with four different squares, or words, of these colours: yellow, magenta, cyan and black. If all of them print (albeit not with the correct shades) it is probably an ICM driver error. But my guess is that only one of those four colors will print badly, due to a defective color cartridge.
    The OKI 5150 makes all perceivable colours using cyan, magenta, yellow and black toners, so if one of these malfunctions, the resulting colors will lack the required shade of, say, yellow, and will appear to be "wrong". The yellow colour itself, of course, would simply disappear (the "yellow" you use might actually be 95% yellow and 5% cyan; then the "yellow" square will be printed as a very light shade of cyan, while the other colors - say, 95% magenta and 5% yellow - will turn out almost exact).

    Try with the color test and replace any failing cartridge; if all four (almost) pure colours do print incorrectly, it's unlikely to be a cartridge problem, and we'll have to dig deeper.

    The lt magenta and magenta just quit printing between pages


    1. Check if the cartriges are correctly installed:
    Installing the Ink Cartridges

    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.

    3. If this still doesn´t solve you problem, try resetting the printer and manually cleaning the cartrigdes as advised in this FAQ:

    Brother mfc 3360 model mostly problem is no printout, pls soluti


    Hi!

    If one or more of the ink colors are missing from pages printed by your machine (i.e. received faxes, copies and/or documents printed from the PC etc), nozzles in the print head may be clogged, or the ink cartridge in question may not be installed correctly. Verifying that the ink cartridges are installed correctly and/or cleaning the print head may resolve this problem.

    To verify the ink cartridges are installed correctly follow the steps listed below:

    Open the ink cartridge cover and reinstall the ink cartridge. Open each lock release lever and push it until it clicks, and then close the ink cartridge cover.

    The LCD may then display:
    Did you change xxxxxx? Yes No.
    The LCD may display this question for the color(s) that was replaced.
    Select Yes or No by pressing arrow keys or 1/2 or "+/-" key.

    After all the correct selections are made, the machine will then go into a cleaning.

    The machine should begin cleaning automatically, and the LCD will alternately show "CLEANING" and "PLEASE WAIT". When the machine completes its cleaning cycle, the LCD will go back to standby mode automatically. Print the Print Quality Check Sheet and see if all colors are present:


    Press the Ink or Ink Management key.
    Use the up or down navigation key to select Test Print.
    Press OK to confirm your choice.
    Use the up or down navigation key to select Print Quality.
    Press OK to confirm your choice. Press the Color key to print the Test Sheet.

    If one or more of the colors is still missing from the printed page, cleaning the print head may resolve this problem. When cleaning the print head, you are given the option to clean BLACK ONLY, one of the three colors (CYAN, YELLOW, or MAGENTA), or all four colors at once. For this issue we recommend cleaning only the affected color. If more than one color is missing then select ALL.

    Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

    Thanks
