Colour of print

My printer has started to print colour incorrectly. It is the first time this has happened and I have had the printer for a few years. Instead of printing the colours correctly everything is coming out in shades of pink. Black is the only other colour coming through (and not very well). Any ideas?

Brother Inkjet printers' printheads are very sensitive, using non-genuine ink clots the printhead. Try to clean the head by pressing the ink maintenance button. Sometimes you need to clean several times.

Incorect line of colour from one edge to the other

I am presuming the rest of the page prints the correct colour and this is an area in the direction of feed that is missing yellow. Try swapping the yellow and magenta drum positions and then the green text should come out a very dark blue colour. if it does then the fault is with the YELLOW drum, if there is still a noticeable Cyan stripe still then the fault will be with the LED head or engine control board.

Incorrect colour is printed

I would try to replace the printhead and the magenta cartridge at the same time. Lots of people with leaky cartridges have this same symptom only, it is with whatever color is malfunctioning.
