Brother dcp 115c : print head clogged (Red & Black not printing).
No more red & blackare available in my printer. So i want to ask:
Can i clean the print head of Brother DCP 115C Printer by removing it from the printer & then putting some alcohol in the ink holes/nozzles, if not so then why ? or What if i dip the print head nozzles in water ?
If i put a few drops of iso-propyl alcohol in the both cart's, tell me this may work or not ?

There may be a problem with the printer's mechanism, electronics, or even the software. You should probably contact the company, and explain the situation. Presuming you have an internet connection, they may be able to correct the software via your computer, over the internet. You'll just have to allow the company access to your machine.
To clean a print cartridge you should a glaas of water and 15-25 ml of alcohol and mix it in a small wide pan.
Dip the head (usually head is mounted to the cartridge itself) in the solution and move horizontally (while the head portion only submerged) keep it there for 5-10 minutes.
This should clean your print head.
After the head is dry you can mout it to the printer and print.
Caution: Do not touch the electronic contacts on spilt water or alcohol in it. This will damage the printer.
Yes, another suggestion is to give it back to the dealer or a service partner which can be found on the homepage of brother.
If the printer is 3 months old you are in guarantee time.
Its a common problem with the printheads that one color (M or Y) is lost somehow sometime...! (Valveproblem within the printhead)
You cant fix it yourself (May need a new printhead).
