Question about Brother MFC 420CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have been using this printer for about 6 months without problems, then it just stopped printing black. I cleaned and test printed about 20 times, then decided to replace a 1/2 empty black cartridge, clean and test print again....nothing. Then I read that all colors needed to be full to print black, so I replaced a nearly empty Magenta. Now, whereas before Magenta was printing fine on test prints, it won't print Magenta either. I have turned it off, unplugged the power and usb for over 2 minutes, etc....still nothing. Please help.
Unplug machinepowercord. Open printer and take all carts out. Plug in power. Machine demands carts. Put new one in: Replace with original ink carts!. When asked push 1 (yes New cart). If you have used thirdparty carts, there could be a prob due to construticon or ink quality. In case there is no bk after 3x cleaning cycles anymore, the head is clogged: This happens because the filter in front of the nozzels is clogged by pigmented ink. DO USE ONLY DYE INK for all types of brother inkjet machines!!!
