Question about Brother HL-2070N Laser Printer

1 Answer

Ink runs on both sides of paper

My husband replaced the ink cartridge of our Brother HL2070N printer
Now it has the ink runs on both sides of the paper.
I cleaned the carrier portion of the ink cartridge but 20 papers or so, no significant change.
Is there a way to fix this or have we just ruined it?

Ink spots left side page brother laser printer


If you are using a generic toner, replace it with cartridge from Brother. Many of these are caused by using a refilled cartridge or a generic cartridge. Use a cleaning sheet and run it though a couple of times, if this does not clear it up you need a new cartridge.

Ink has dried up and won't print


Remove the ink cartridges from the printer. Find the gold colored bars where the ink is dispensed on the cartridge. Run this part of the cartridge very gently under your faucet using a small trickle of warm water. Wipe clean with a paper towel until no ink remains on cartridge. Reinstall cartridges. Run cleaning cycle and then try reprinting. ( several cleaning cycles may need to be run to get a good printing ) If this does not clear the cartridges, they may need replaced.

Brother MFC-290c printer does not print black anymore. Test print page color ok but not black printing. What is the problem?


The problem is either:

* out of BLACK ink -- replace the ink-cartridge

* clogged ink-jets -- the ink is not spraying onto the paper, so run a few print-head-cleaning cycles

* dead electronics -- not triggering the jets to spray ink, so replace the printer

I just changed all the printer cartridges out and now get black and blue now black and orange lines down both sides of the paper


1. Ink cartridges might be faulty, dripping more ink than they should. Remember to always use genuine ink cartridges.
2. Print head needs a clean (even if it was a faulty ink cartridge) and if this doesn't fix it will need replacement.

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

Can't print pic on glossy photo paper with brother 3in1 printer


First off thanks for using fixya.com

Secondly, it is very difficult to tell exactly which is the problem. I would however put most of my concern in the refill ink. Since it is from a third party and not recommended by the manufacturer this ink may be designed for regular paper only. Ink that is used for photos has a quicker dry time to keep it from running. Since your ink is running it may be that the ink is not designed for photos paper.

You may also be able to drop down your print quality, this will use less ink and may dry faster. This can be access by going into your print settings before printing a photo. With what I have seen in the past, switching over to a manufacturer recommended ink cartridge will probably fix your problem.

I hope this helps you out, but feel free to ask further if needed.

Using far too much ink


This came from brothers website:

The Yellow ink cartridge yield is up to 300 pages @ 600 x 150 dpi when printing at 5% coverage on A4 sized paper.
The Magenta ink cartridge yield is up to 300 pages @ 600 x 150 dpi when printing at 5% coverage on A4 sized paper.
The Cyan ink cartridge yield is up to 300 pages @ 600 x 150 dpi when printing at 5% coverage on A4 sized paper.
The Black ink cartridge yield is up to 350 pages @ 600 x 150 dpi when printing at 5% coverage on A4 sized paper.

so it appears that what you are experiencing is not normal and you may have a leaking printer.

There is one thing you can check though, everytime you print, make sure that you are not printing at the highest quality option selectable as this almost certainly will fire out more ink than regular printing... choose a middle quality option or even draft option if you will be printing regular text.

Brother MFC-3360C cyan ink cartridge replace ment


On the front of the cartridge there is a sight tube for the ink, the fax shines a light through this tube to detect the ink.
I wraped a piece of paper around the tube to block the light beam on all the cartridges.
I dont need a processer to tell me if the machine is out of ink, I can work thay out when it stops printing!!
Now tell me you are out of ink you peice of electronic ****.
