My printer is not made by brother. it is Hp model 6500 I do not know how to clean the cartridge. The cartridge is new not a refill


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

Lines when picture is printed


Usually the print head just needs to be cleaned. There's a Brother utility included with your printer, that you can select Clean. Run this. Afterwards run a print test page to see if it has cleared up your problem. If the unit STILL does it, your print cartridges may be low, or perhaps a 3rd party print cartridge was used, and the printer doesn't really KNOW how much ink is in them.

I believe the print cartidge itself, IS the print head, thereby, when you install a new cartridge, you renew the print head. which is good. However, I don't know on this model. If not, the print head, can be cleaned with a cotton q-tip with a little alcohol.

I hope this helps.

Problem with printing in black writing not clear and very faded.


It sounds like you need to run a printhead cleaning. The print head is what you put the ink cartridges into, it's responsible for placing ink directly to the page. If the some of the nozzles are clogged up, it can give you bad print quality. Without knowing the exact model of your printer, I can't tell you exactly where to find the menus needed to run the cleaning. Sometimes you can do this via the "maintenance" tab in the printers properties. If you need any further assistance, feel free to let me know.

I just bought new ink and nothing prints clearly


If it hasn't printed anything for a couple of years then the print heads will be severely clogged with dried ink. Epson recommends printing a page or two every month to keep the heads clear. You need to try cleaning the print heads, its unlikely that one or two head cleans will clear a badly clogged nozzle. Try doing 4 or 5 head cleans, wait about 10 hours for the ink to soften and do another 3 or 4 cleans with a nozzle check after each. You should see a gradual improvement in the nozzle checks. If there is no improvement then you need a head cleaning solution such as this one:
http://www.powerklin.co.uk/?gclid=CNGDypir-JgCFQ4yQgodZlC4lw
Others are available just try googling "inkjet head cleaning".
Note that head cleaning uses between 5 and ten percent of your ink cart's, if any are low on ink, have some new ones ready.
If you need to know how to do head cleans & nozzle checks, the user guide can be downloaded from Epson here:

Hope this helps.
Please take a moment to rate this solution, thanks.

Does anyone know how to remove print head?


The print head nozzles is clogged but good. None of the cleaning the machine can do will clear it. Been there and trid that. Doesn't work. The clogs need to be dissolved with a specialty clog buster and probably will need to soak at least 24 hours, maybe more. Don't deep clean any more as you will put so much in in the absorbent blotters on the inside of the printer that you will trigger an error code and not be able to print until the absorbant pads are replaced by a service tech for about $100.
