How do I empty the ink resevior in my brother mfc 5440cn printer

I am needing to empty the ink resevior on my printer. It is a brothers mfc 5440cn. How do I go about doing this. There is no repair shop in my area so I will need to try to do it myself. I don't want to just trash it if I can keep from it.

If this only happens when you are copying.

1. Your scanner glass is dirty. Open the lid, use windex to clean the flatbed. Look on the left side. You should see a strip of glass, with the scanner sitting under it. This strip is used when the document feed is being used. Make sure it is clean. Most common problem is getting a little whiteout or the sticky residue from scotch tape on this glass, which causes lines down your copies.

Clean it with alcohol which will dissolve the sticky stuff and the whiteout.

If this does not solve the problem, the CCD scanner in your machine might be going bad.

Brother MFC-5440CN wont feed 2 colors of ink, Yellow and Magenta and also says


This may be due to the fact that you have not removed correctly the small label that seals the air input to the cartridge. Normally on brother cartridges it's on the back or on the top of the colored label. Please check that. If no air is allowed in then your ink will not be provided thus generating your problem.

Printer keeps telling me that the yellow cart is empty and I have put a new one in


Are you positive it says the yellow cart is empty? Because that brother printer is designed to say that a cartridge is empty whenever ANY of the color cartridges are empty. Usually it doesn't tell you which one is really empty either. So even if you replaced the yellow cartridge and say, the black cartridge is empty, it still won't let you print until you replace that empty black cartridge, nor will you know which of the cartridges is empty unless you pull them out of the printer and manually check the ink levels.

Its pretty much a guessing game with those old brother ink printers.

Hope this helps :)

INK


Brother multifunction printers require that all ink be filled before you can print to it. If any ink is empty, you cannot print, even if you are printing only black.

Brother mfc MFC-5440CN magenta issues


If you have used generic ink the head is clogged and cant be cleaned anymore.

Last chance is to use original brother ink which has cleaning fluids within the ink. Run the cleaning procedure twice and simply print 10 PAGES afterwards. Wait A DAY AND TRY TO PRINT IN MAG AGAIN:

If there will be no mag. the ph is definitley clogged and needs replacement.
