TFT screen will only operate at about 60% open

TFT screen has become faint over the last couple of months. Yesterday it went blank. By half closing the flap it will operate in full colour.
Can you advise me?

The color is not printing correctly. Things are coming out mostly pink or yellow. I tried the MAINTENANCE tab. The nozzle check showed that the top section (PGBK) looked good. The second section (C)...


The printhead has either become too clogged to flush out with with the internal cleaning operation (which uses a LOT of ink), OR, the nozzles are not firing. If after several cleaning operations there is still no significant improvement, you will need to replace the print head. I see this frequently with Canon and Epson, and Brother inkjet printers. Usually, it is due to leaving the printer idle for too long, or removing a cartridge and not replacing it right away. The air gets to the residual puddle of ink in the head and dries it.

You can find the replacement print head by Google searching "MP830 print head". Prices can vary from around $70 - $90. Changing it out is fairly simple. You only need to lift a lever that holds the head in place. Make certain that it is squarely seated, and then run a few pages of a color document, or do a couple of standard cleaning operations to "prime" the head.

Make sure the hed is NEW and not used or "refurbished". Here is one source on eBay that sells it for $78.00:

Open the rear of the printer and make sure theres no paper jam or broken parts.

Try printing a document with the rear of the printer open and watch to see if anything out of the ordinary happens.

Hello, I have an imagerunner 5000 and the screen control panel went blank but no error code. What do you think went wrong with the copier?


If the copier is still running properly despite the lcd screen being blank, you may have a burnt out power inverter board. If you look very closely at the screen and are able to make out very faint images or text, it is most likely a faulty inverter board. You can find these boards on ebay and should only run you about $50.00.

Screen is blank when turned on but works with external moniter


Probably, the "LCD inverter" has failed -- take the laptop into a dark room -- do you see a FAINT image of your "Windows desktop"?

If so, it's a $20 part to replace, but rent a qualified technician (1 hour @ $60/hour) to safely and properly replace the inverter.

Or, spend $200 to replace the LCD (plus $60 "labour").

Printing blank pages


Did you run the cart initialization?
Try this: (use new carts because it consumes some ink)
press menue then start mono (blue) then fourtimes arrow up button (tel-index). machine will be in maintenance mode and lights will flash. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start mono. machine will refill tubes and ph with freh ink and do some cleaning.
Leave maintenace by pressing 9 then 9. Do run a quality test print by pressing ink etc. Iy you cant see the letters and colored blocks well the ph has to be replaced.
I guess your machine is a 2.5 years old. Unfurtunately brother ph didnt last longer than that time when useing generic ink.
