Printer suddenly printing gargabe

Printer worked great several months. When I sent a document with embedded pictures to the printer, it suddenly started printing all kinds of characters on 6 pages starting with =12345XPPZ and ended with several test pages. No matter what I ask it to print now, printer will print these 6 pages followed by TEST PRINT pages which look fine.
Any suggestions?
I already tried deinstalling the print driver and reinstalling it but no change.

SOURCE: my printer doesint print magenta on test page

Did you use third party ink? Insert a genuine (original) brother ink cart and do the cleaning twice. there should be magenta again. If there is no magenta after that, this could be either because of air in the system (thats why you should do the cleaning twice!) or the nozzels are clogged (and cant be cleaned anymore).

Printing 'bookfold' documents


Does the print queue show that all the pages have been sent to the printer. Check the print screen to make sure that either page 1 or print current page are not checked. This type of problem is generally caused by the printing application rather than the printer.

Printer doesn't do anything


Hi-

Try to cancel the document in queue first by going to control panel and printers and faxes/ other hardware. right click on the printer icon and cancel all documents up until you get 0 and ready status. Restart computer and try printing again.

Hope this helps
