Question about Brother MultiFunction Center MFC-440CN All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Printed pages are blank

Just out of the box, followed ALL directions, and yet it will not print. It goes through the motions but comes out without a drop of ink (any color) on the pages.... Cannot find anything on the Web nor the Manufacture website that talks about this problem.... We have tried different computers, paper, and the copy feature with no results.
Looks like a store return

Just a thought. Most printers when out of the box do not print. The reason being there is a tape attached to the Printer Head which holds the ink so that it does not spill. Has it been removed ? Are you able to take a test page ?

Remove the ink cartridges and verify that you removed the entirety of the protective film from the contacts. The printer can't use the carts if it can't actually see them.

I have not been using the Brother MFC 465CN printer for a while. Bought and installed new cartridges, cleaned the print head several times (from the printer menu option). But, nothing is getting printed....


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

Changed new ink but when i print, the pages come out blank with no ink. Printing motion takes place but some how the ink done not reach the paper.


I had the same problem with my DCP 165.It simply wouldnt print.The paper was coming out but it was Blank.I had changed all the cartridges so there was no obvious issue with the ink.Then I printed a test page.It printed all the colour blocks except the black.Then i found out from Brother website that it was a problem with cleaning and after seeral cleaning cycles the printer worked fine. STEPS 1>ink management 2>Cleaning 3>Black or colour 4>OK Repeat the above process several times and try printing after that...Hope it works

Printing blank pages


Check that the cartridges are seated correctly. Also clean the contacts in the casing that the copper portion of the cartridge sits against.

HP LaserJet 3550 spits out blank paper when job sent from computer but prints fine when printing directly from printer


Try connecting the printer via the USB port on either one of the computers. Then test if the machine prints fine then likely possibility is that the Network interface card is faulty remove the network card and install in a different slot and test. If the same thing happens then reinstall the drivers and test.

Hope this helps
Thanks J
