    How do these cleaners work? And do I have to order on line or can I get from an Office Supply store like Office Mas or Staples? I really need this working today ASAP!

If you have carried out 4 to 5 head cleans, waited about 8 hours anddone another 3 or head cleans doing nozzle checks after each clean (asrecommended by the manual) and there is still no improvement then youwill need a third party head cleaning solution such as this one:

Other makes & brands are available just google "inkjet head cleaning solution" Hope this helps.

White stripe in print-outs


This is a common problem with this printer. Each toner color has it's own roller. The tin blade on the inside edge of the roler gets plasticy buildup and needs to be cleaned.

Pull out the entire toner roller assembly for the color that is problmatic. Unscrew the tin blade from the roller assembly. Clean the inside edge of this blade (the part that scrapes on the roller) completely. NOTE: After cleaning mine with toilet paper & water I ran my fingernail along the edge to find that the waxy buildup was still there. I gently took my fingernail and scraped at it until it felt smooth -- no burrs.

NOTE: The edge of this blade is very sharp! Be careful. Don't run your finger along the edge.

Reinsall the tin plate maing sure that the foam sweeps (on the right and left of the blade) are not stuck under the tin blade. (If you do, it will dump large amounts of toner on your pages. Very messy).

Give her a whirl.

Very Faint Printouts


I find the best way to clean the heads is buy some cleaning cartridges as they have cleaning fluid in them and use them to clean it will take about 10 or more times to clean the heads then put the color ones back in and try again.
Just keep putting it on clean the head don't do a print out till at lest you have cleaned 10 or more times.

No, they cannot be cleaned once you lose the color completely. You'll need to replace the head.

Black won't print


I have this same model printer and had this same problem. I solved it by running the cleaning cycle repeatedly (30 times or more). It nealy drained the black cartridge, but they're cheap compared to a new printer ($100 for the mfc240c that replaced it). Press the ink button to the left of the display. Select "test print" and "print quality from the menus, then hit print. After printing, the display will ask if quality is ok. Press 2 for no. It will ask if the black was ok, press 2 for no, if the color looks ok, then press 1 when it asks if color is ok, then press 1 when it asks to start cleaning. In a minute or so, it will beep and tell you to press start. Once the sheet prints again, repeat the same sequence. I didn't even wait for the display, I would just press 2,2,1,1, each time it printed. At first the black section was blank, the one dash appeared, then two or three. I gradually gained on it until I had most of them working again, then let it set overnight and ran a few more cycles the next day and it finally all started working.

MFC440CN PRINTING - ALL BLACK


I understand that the machine is printing only in BK. You have lost color.

If so, do run the cleaning cycles several times and run quality check test prints after each cycle.

There should be color again.

Otherwise the ph is defective!
