    I don't have the problem in color printing. But I did notice that the black ink part of the printing looked faded. I just installed a new PG41 cartridge and and am using a pg30 for black ink maybe that is the problem?

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

All my colored prints have 2 one inch strips of faded color. What do I need to do?


First tray printing a black and white copy to see if you get same quality problem then try each individual color. If it shows on each copy then check The transfer belt Assy . If it only shows on one color then would be a drum unit or could be toner on laser shield glass . Other thing stop it during copying process and see where it's coming from look at drums and see if that shows up on them

Faded color prints


* If your are printing color photos on a Glossy paper you must chose the paper type from Media Type in the Printing Properties while giving Print command. If you don't know what is the type of your glossy paper then just select other glossy paper from the given options. f91a3a39-5f37-45c6-9bca-21ac453f79ef.gif

Hello - my Brother DCP 330C printer is printing horizontal faded lines on both color and Black and white copies. I have changed the toner in all areas but still no change. Could the problem be with the...


I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck

Color intensity= poor


Shake the cartridges well, it seems that they become dry, try to replace them and check again, go to driver there is setting makes u clean and test the nozzels which makes the color more rich and at the same time it check the state of the cartridges.
