I changed all Print cartridges-Black, Yellow,Cyan,Blue


On this machine you have to install inks with power on and use the ink button and choose replace ink. If you just plug them in it won't register and reset the counts. You may need to run clean cycles at least twice to get proper colors.

Light/faint prints usually are a result from clogged ink or air bubbles between the cartridge and print head (thus changing cartridge wont fix problem). Try printing the test page print from the machine (Ink Management -> set/ok twice). Answer the question(s) in the display and repeat this up to five times. The colors should be improved after 1-3 test prints usually.

That might be because of generic ink!
This generic ink destroys the nozzels due to a chemical reaction!

If you re lucky you will have good results when useing original brother ink carts.

Run the cleaning procedure twice after you have inserted the original carts!
