    Use the head cleaner routine within the software until it clears up.

Prints half page


Printing half a page with an Inkjet machine is not normally a computer issue. So windows 10 would not normally have any effect on the printing for a printer that has been accepted by the Windows 10 Operating System. If there was an issue in the software it would be printing gibberish or not printing at all.

Printing half a page is quite possably something stuck in the printer stopping the ink from getting to that half a page if it is printing down once side but not the other.
Printing half a page being that the top half is printed but not the bottom half (Or the other way around) it could be an air bubble in the feed line which can be cleared with a printhead clean or two.
Printing half a line rather than a full line such as the top half of each letter is clear but the bottom half of each letter is not visable is a blocked printhead. A couple of printhead cleans can also fix this.
Also check to see if the printer is not confused and actually has empty cartridges even if the printer thinks they are full. Brother printers can easily get confused about ink levels. If the cartridges are actually empty, replace them and away it should go again.

Hope that helps

Even with new ink cartridge printer prints light


Double click Control Panel.
Double click Printers and Faxes.
Right click your printer and select properties. Now on General tab select "Printing Preferences".

Now select the basics tab and click "Advanced features" found on the right of the page.
Here you will be able to adjust the amount of ink that is used to print a page. Side the bar to the right to increase/darken the print.

Now click OK, followed by Apply.

Take care!

I am getting a replace magenta cartridge message but have only printed about 300 pgs most of which were only b&w


The full replaement color cartridges for this printer only print 1,400 pages @ 5% coverage. If you are speaking of the starter cartridges (the ones that came with the printer) they only have about half of that. If you print with this machine in full color mode, which is the default, it counts developer revolutions even if you only print b&w. If this is a purchased toner cartridge you are speaking of, you can reset the flag gear on the side of the cartridge in order to get more prints out of it, put the print quality may not be good. To extend the life of the color cartridges when you are only printing b&w, set the printer properties to print in "graysale" or "monochrome" under preferences. When you try to print a document, in the dialog box next to the printer name click preferences. Look on all of the tabs for one of the selections I mentioned and select it. This is an expensive cost per page printer, and you may not want to use it for all of your prints. It may be adviseable to get a cheap monochrome only printer for your b&w needs and only use this brother machine for your full color prints.

Right hand side page print quality very poor, almost unreadable


this is cause of the lens is dirty with toner droping..
open the front cover and on the right side, there is a level for you to pull out.. at the right side of the printer, open the small cover and you will be able to find a cleaner. To clean..pull out the holder few times.. by applying slight pressure..that will clean the bottom lens..and u should be able to print out fine now..

Black ink cartridge almost empty in just two days of use..why?


its all in simple math, when you go to by new ink cartridges it should tell you how many pages on average it should be able to print so price/page*15=cost to print a day

Printing with double lines and blurry on left side of the page


Print cartridge
When the print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer cannot detect/communicate with print cartridge.
Clean the contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.
1. Open the top cover of the printer.
2. Remove the print cartridges.
3. Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a damp, lint-free cloth. Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.
5. Insert the cartridges back into the printer.
6. Close the top cover.
7. Try printing again.
If you still cant communicate try with new cartridge .

Slow printing


Even though the printer doesn't call for new ink, remove or replace the color cartridge. First I removed the color and the test page printed at full speed. I then put in a new color cartridge and it again worked full speed. I believe the problem was somewhere in the half used color cartridge. Hope this solves your problem.

Print faded after replacing black cartridge Brother 240C


The print heads don't appreciate being out of ink so the Brother printer has sensors to prevent that but the tape defeated that prevention. Maybe more cleanings or maybe a cartridge with printhead cleaning solution will help. Otherwise, I fear a new printer.
