Question about Brother MFC-5440CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
How difficult is it to do and is it possible to purchase a printer head retail?
Its quite siple to do if you are able to use a srewdriver... 1#: Go get a 2.hand dcp 110c or 115c at eBay with a good printhead (and a broken scanner glass???). It should print without probs! opening mfc 5440 is nearly the same as a mfc 215c, since all brother printers are of the same built :) follow pictures here http://www.hstt.net/refill-faq/inside.html#Brother_mfc215c For your mfc you have to unfasten some more screws which can be seen very well. After that you can take up the cover. Now you should realize that it looks the same inside as on photos given in the link. Read the rest of "how to change the printhead" here: http://www.fixya.com/support/t209702-get_color_print_black_works_fine there is just one more difference to your mfc! You have to take out the sensor in the ink cart assy of your mfc 5440cn which is clipped at the side and reinsert it into the cart assy of the "new" one! This sensor is placed at the BK cart and signals the mfc that there is a HBK cart. Thats it. This job could be done for a novice within less than an hour. If there are questions afterwards or during surgery post it here!
