Brother mfc-420cn problem

It acts like it is printing when I try to print something, but the page comes out blank. I can scan something and it will print that O.K., but when I try to print something from Microsoft Works, a page comes out and it sounded like it printed, but the page is blank. Thank you in advance.

I had the same problem with this same printer and the inlet for the black ink jet was clogged. I used a syringe to unlog it.

Can you print from another programm? Or is it just MS Works? And can you scan into a programm? If you cant do either, there is a problem with the USB or network connection. Please check plugs and cable. Anyway, it could be helpful to reinstall the drivers, too.

I have the brother mfc-420cn all in one inkjet printer, recently replaced all the ink. and as i try to print is says receiving data and acts as if it were printing. but as the page comes out its blank.

What you need to do is run a allignment on the print heads this will iensure flow of ink to the plunger.

You need to run that 5 times before giving up totally on the unit.

if that does not work then try with diffrent ink cart.

My mfc 420cn brothers printer want print

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 the 420CN print double sided pages

There is only a manual double sided printing avaiable:
After the first side was printed you have to turn the page into the papertray again.

Canon bubble jet printers can do double side printing but the back side black print will be mingled through C/Y/M ink!
