I hate this printer!

I rarely even use this printer and it prints half the page and only in blue..I have cleaned it recalibrated it many times and it doesn't change. Now the panel is frozen and I've tried to re-start it but nothing changes. Now what do I do, I can't afford to replace it!

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Prints half page


Printing half a page with an Inkjet machine is not normally a computer issue. So windows 10 would not normally have any effect on the printing for a printer that has been accepted by the Windows 10 Operating System. If there was an issue in the software it would be printing gibberish or not printing at all.

Printing half a page is quite possably something stuck in the printer stopping the ink from getting to that half a page if it is printing down once side but not the other.
Printing half a page being that the top half is printed but not the bottom half (Or the other way around) it could be an air bubble in the feed line which can be cleared with a printhead clean or two.
Printing half a line rather than a full line such as the top half of each letter is clear but the bottom half of each letter is not visable is a blocked printhead. A couple of printhead cleans can also fix this.
Also check to see if the printer is not confused and actually has empty cartridges even if the printer thinks they are full. Brother printers can easily get confused about ink levels. If the cartridges are actually empty, replace them and away it should go again.

Hope that helps

How do I fix my printer it prints blank sheets it acts like its printing but the paper is still blank I did nozzle and print head checks nothing still blank


I hate to state the obvious, but how long has it been since you've changed the ink cartridges on the printer. If you have done both the nozzle cleaning and print head alignment and nothing appeared on the paper, I don't know what else it could be.
This following suggestion is very rare - if you recently replaced the cartridges and your printer hasn't printed since then, it is possible that you installed them incorrectly; OR perhaps you left the head protector tape on the cartridge. But then it wouldn't "see" the cartridge.
In the "rare" situations, you should try to remove and replace the cartridges to assure that they are properly installed.

If this just started after you replaced the toner cartridge, one would have to say that it is a bad toner cartridge.
Print something that smudges. Pull down the front cover and look at the cartridges. Pay attention to the top one(black).
Look at the drum on that cartridge. You should see the toner sitting there. Compare it to the other cartridges which should be clean.

May try new ink jet cartridges, as the nozzles can get plugged up over a period of disuse. Maybe try to wipe the ink jet cartridge nozzles with a cloth soaked with rubbing alcohol to clean.

But, if that doesn't work, then new cartridges are indicated even though they are kind of expensive.

HALF PRINTING(HALF DARK AND THE rest no printing)


Check with the cartridges. If you are using recycled cartridges it has these kind of problems. Try aligning your printer from the software. If you have new cartridges than also you can try aligning and in troubleshoot option it could be 'recalibrating/recalibration' use this option. And the best would be use software assistance and try to uninstall and reinstall the printer.

Print faded after replacing black cartridge Brother 240C


The print heads don't appreciate being out of ink so the Brother printer has sensors to prevent that but the tape defeated that prevention. Maybe more cleanings or maybe a cartridge with printhead cleaning solution will help. Otherwise, I fear a new printer.
