SOURCE: Prints blank pages when I try printing a document

Hi


Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this I put down here. But after you don this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.

Ok it got to be the heads blockage
There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

SOURCE: blank pages

The following is courtesy of Brother:

To resolve blank prints, follow the steps below:


Brother strongly recommends that customers use only genuine Brother drum units and/or toner cartridges. Each Brother laser printer is designed to work at pre-set temperatures that are matched exactly to each of our individual toner formulations. Each individual component is designed to work with the other to ensure quality and reliability. Using non-Brother supplies may affect the hardware performance, print quality and machine reliability. The Brother limited warranty does not apply to any problem that is caused by the use of third party drum units, toner cartridges or toner.


To clean the laser glass follow the instructions listed below:


1. Turn off the Brother machine using the power switch located on the right side of the machine.

2. Unplug the power cord from the AC power outlet.


3. Open the front cover and remove the drum and toner assembly.


NOTE: We recommend you place the toner and drum assembly on a piece of paper in case you accidentally spill or scatter toner.



4f2ace97d9101493e1000000cd8620c6.jpg


4. The laser glass is located inside the machine where the drum was installed. It is a piece of glass, about 1/2 inch wide and approximately 8 inches long, located on the ceiling of the inside of the printer. Gently wipe the glass with a clean soft DRY cloth. DO NOT use isopropyl alcohol or any liquid to clean the glass.

5. Place the drum and toner assembly back into the Brother machine.


6. Close the front cover making sure it latches on both sides.


7. Plug the machine back into the power outlet and turn on the power switch.


8. Test the machine by printing the Print Settings page. Press the GO button three times. The printer will print the current printer settings.


9. If the problem continues, perform a factory reset.


a. Turn off the printer.

b. Make sure the front cover is closed.


c. Hold down the GO button as you turn on the power switch.


d. Release the GO button when the Status light turns off. The Toner, Drum, and Paper lights will be on.


e. After releasing the GO button, all the lights will turn off.


f. Press the GO button eight times.


g. The printer settings will be reset to factory default. The printer will then initialize and return to Ready status.


10. If the problem continues and your machine is within warranty, you can locate a Brother Authorized Service Center (ASC) in your area by clicking on the link below:

http://www.brother-usa.com/service/default.aspx or contact Brother Customer Service by calling 1-877-Brother (1-877-276-8437) Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.


If your machine is out of warranty, you can locate a Brother Authorized Service Center using the information listed above.

1/3 of page blank when print, or copying


Hi Abe,
1) Press the Ink button -> Test Print -> then choose Print Quality -> the printer will then go through and print a series of small squares in each of the four colors in the shape of parallelograms. If you see any gaps in parallelograms then you will be asked asked to clean the cartridge, do so. -> Just keep repeating process until there are no gaps

2) Then I did an Alignment check right after the cleaning through pretty much same process:
Press Ink button-> Test Print -> then choose Alignment-> and make sure the patterns match to the closest number

Prints blank pages


hi jcruisedirec

Test print shows that there is no problem with he printer.
Do this:

Type just one or two words in a new document and try to print. Before printing, look at the print setup and make sure you have the correct printer name selected.
Also when you go to print, there are few options like:

  • Print All
  • Current page
  • Pages
  • Selection
If you attempt to print "selection" without actually selecting a certain portion of the document, you get blank page.
So first check that the correct name of the printer is selected.
Then test printing one page
Hope this will help you. Good luck.

My brother fax machine - only receives black pages


do a quick check on 2 things.
- Copy a document(put a printed page on document feeder and press Copy button) , has the Copy come ok? if copy is also blank that means toner/ink problem, needs to be replaced.

- check with your Fax receive Print settings. is any setting of econo mode/ contrast/brightness Off the track? If found any of such issue then Reset it or put it on average (middle).

Hope this will put your Brother on the track
