Brother MFC Printers Ink Problems


<span>Your printer does not print certain colors or does not print completely. Well, this is a common problem with people who purchase Brother printers, but do not always use Brother Ink Cartridges. Brother has a cleaning agent in the print cartridge and the compatibles do not.<br /><br />"If you have a lack of one (or more) color do the following:<br /><br />Make sure all carts are full, placed well and are secured. Insert a new ORIGINAL BROTHER CART for the one that shows no color.<br /><br />Press menu then start bk-copy then four times arrow up quick after another. machine will switch into maintenance mode and all lights will flash. Press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk-copy. machine will initialize the carts and refresh ink within tubes and print head. After that it does some power cleaning. When finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk-copy. machine will run a power purge. when finished press 9 then 9 to leave the maintenance mode. do run a quality test print.<br /><br />This should clean the lines out and clear up your issue.</span>

Easyshare5300 wont print


Hi Grandma,

Sorry to hear of your trouble.

I would remove the ink carts, reseat the print head then reinstall the ink carts. Try printing again to see if things improve. If it does good. If not try the Kodak online team. 800 421 6699 They will help you get things working correctly.

Talk to you soon,

Will not print


Most likely your print head is clogged, there are 2,00 some nozzle's in it. If the printer is not used for a moderate amount of time the ink can dry up and cause a clog in those nozzle's. You can try taking out ink carts, powering down with ink carts out. Unplug the power wait a few seconds with out power, power back on, wait for missing ink cart prompt, put ink carts back in close access door, wait for it to get done making noise then proceeed in doing a printhead clean from the main menu, or homecenter->?->maintenance. Then after that do a calibration, print a demo sheet to see if there is any improvment. The printhead clean pushes ink through the nozzles to try to clear clogs. The calibration scans those nozzles to see which are avalible to use, and makes sure that all the avalible nozzles are being used. If this does not fix the problem you most likely need a printhead but you will have to call kodak; as they are not avalible in stores. Also you can try updating your firmware from kodak home center, or www.kodak.com/go/downloads

I guess you have used generic ink carts.

You should buy an original brother ink cart.

When done so make sure all other carts are at full level:
Press menu then start b/k copy then fourtimes arrow up (tel.index). Machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start b/k copy. Machine will refresh ink within tubes and print head and do some power cleaning. when finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy to run an extra power purge.
Leave maintenance by pressing 9 then 9.

Do run a quality test print.

If you re lucky the it will work again.

THERE IS NO WAY TO CLEAN THE PH OUTSIDE EXCEPT BY Power Purge (7-6-3) within maintenance mode.

If you like to save money refill ORIGINAL Carts by drilling a 2mm hole into the top (O of brother brandname) . You can leave the hole open to refill the cart next time directly without taking it out of the printer.

Mix some 3ml 85%-glycerin alc (drugstore) with 3ml of distilled water and 5 ml of DYE(!) ink and refill the c/y/m cart.

For bk mix 1 ml glycerin alc with 4ml dest. water and 15 ml bk DYE ink (shake well before refill).

This is -nearly- the exact mixture of original brother ink.

Black ink is full but does not print.


Did you make sure that the cart was placed well and the plastic hook secures the cart on top?

If you have used Easy Jet carts, you can stop here and give the whole machine a push to the bin!
Easy Jet carts and some other generic ink carts clogg the fine filter in front of the nozzles which cant be cleaned anymore.

The ph as a spare part is more costly than a new mfc 240c at a price discount!

But you can try this at least:
Use a new original brother carts (BK/C/Y/M). place carts and secure them! (this procedure will consume some ink!)
press menu then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow-up button. machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh ink in tubes and ph
and will do some cleaning cycles. when finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy to run a special power purge.
When finished press 9 then 9. After machine is back in normal state run a test print.
If you still cant see any bk the ph cant be fixed anymore.

Black ink clogged


Did you use generic ink? The generic ink has the wrong ink filled in which destroys the ph!
brother printers must be run with dye-ink and special additives. Those additives are always missing within the generic carts!

Do use a original brother ink cart, make sure ALL carts are full with ink, placed well and are secured! Run the following procedure afterwards:

press menu then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow up (tel-index). machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh ink 
within tubes and ph and do some special cleaning procedures. When finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy. machine will run a powerpurge.
When finished press 9 then 9 to leave the maintenance mode.
Print a quality test print by pressing ink Management etc.

If there is no BK afterwards the ph is defenitly clogged and cant be fixed anymore!

Printer problem


Did you check the right placing of the ink cart? Is the support locked above the cart top?

After checking press menue then start mono (blue copy button). then fourtimes arrow-up button. machine will display maintenance and blicking. press 7 then 6 then 4. machine will be initialize the carts. press start mono (blue copy). machine will initialize the carts and will run some cleaning. After maintenance is shown again leave this mode by pressing 9 then 9. Do a test print.

If you cant see any bk insert another brand new cart and do the procedure again.

If trhere is still no bk the print head is clogged (because of generic ink??) and cant be cleaned any more! The ph has to be replaced by service personal!

My MFC-210C always says replace ink.


Try this: Unplug machine from power. Wait 5 min.  Open scanner cover and take the carts out of the holder. Close cover. Plug machine to power. Machine will cycle and demands the carts. Use all NEW carts: Insert carts as demanded and answer question shown on display.

Always print until machine STOPPS printing because of EMPTY cart. Change cart then and machine will print the rest of job!
Plz, never change carts when it says NEAR EMPTY: This will cause a lot of trouble ;-)
