Question about Brother DCP 130C All-In-One InkJet Printer
I installed repro cartridges and cannot get the printer to print out in a reasonable quality. All I get is very faint printing and cannot find a way to solve it.
SOURCE: Brother DPC- 115C
I have same problem. It started off as empty ink and low ink so I replaced first the black, did a test print then even though the other one yellow was still unchanged low the test print came out as black fine, cyan fine but yellow and magenta blank. Because it was blank and reading low I changed the yellow anyway but its still blank. After lots of tests and cleans magenta and yellow still remained blank. Now the cyan is near empty and the magenta even though nothing has been printed. I took them out many times to see if it will get it working tried all the above suggestions and anyway its now started saying no cartridge. I'm not using orig brother ink and don't expect it to be as good but not to print some colours at all is a bit odd. Cant get round this no cartridge thing though, machine has hardly been used so I'm disappointed if its had it.

The process to get to the print head will take you approx. 1 hour. Without being trained on it, there is a high failure rate upon completion.
The Scanner assembly needs to be taken off. Harness Cables for the Scanner need to be removed.The Upper Case Assembly needs to be taken off. Printhead casing and printhead tubing calbes need to be removed, printhead mainboard needs to be removed, and then you have access to the printhead.

You said you replaced the cartridges. Were they Genuine Brothers' Cartridges?
My Brother MFC-240C, does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. That sounds like your problem. Also I had with Brother's was problem with Color. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, or Blue Green, etc. The Generic Cartridges, also printed lines thru the words. That's what the Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges.
Some Printers, are able to use Generic, but you have to fill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY, or Take them to have them filled.
So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for the PRINTERS.
This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.
Thanks and Good Luck :0)
