1 Answer

Brother mfc-5460cn terrible print quality

I chose an image - looking down toward a Rowboat on the sea as a test print, you can imagine the wood, the color, but on printing(as with any image) it comes out lacking correct color, it's all washed-out looking and very Yellowish all over, like it's been yellow filtered! I'v checked all that I know to check, but no answer! they are new print cartridges, gone through the usual clean command, and test prints~ help!!

Try a few cleanings. Press the ink button then chose test print then quality by pressing menu/set, it will print a test page, from here you follow the instructions if the quality is bad. It will take you through a cleaning process. Try doing a few cleanings to resolve the issue.

Wireless printing

At Officemax or other electronic stores, they sell a product for about $50.00-$100.00 that sets up your printer to print wireless. I bought mine from office max for 79.99. It works great when im not in my office.
