It may be your printer head that needs to be flashed. if you have not use the printer in a wile, the ink drys out and clog up the nozels. Do printer head cleaning, if not work, use paper towel with a little warm water, press the printer head on it.

SOURCE: Help with Brother MFC-8500 all in one printer

When you get the paper, can you smear the print with your fingers, or is printed on there properly.

if you can smear it, it would be your fuser not doing its job properly, if you cant, then its your replacement toner as it most likely incorporates the drum in it, which i think is your problem.

SOURCE: Brother MFC 240C alignment problems

I have figured it out! I have a Brother MFC 240CN and I was having the same alignment problem and I followed the instructions from the printer prompt as well as the manual and it does not work.

So, this is what I did. I ran the alignment test print, then when it asked if it matches, I would say "No". And then I would pick number "8" to be the one that most closely matched "0" regardless if it did or not. I did this for the 600 and 1200dpi. Then when I ran the alignment test print again, it looked better! So I repeated it again and again picking "8" each time and it looked better with every test print. After about 4 or 5 tries, it looked normal again!

I hope everyone else with this problem will see this response and I hope it works too. I was getting so frustrated with this problem. Now I don't have to get it serviced or buy a new printer!

SOURCE: Ghost printing

Hello,

You have a worn image drum. The drum is the part of the printer that the print image is created on before it transfers the toner to the paper. This part is coated with a very thin layer of Teflon so the toner does not stick. When it gets worn the toner starts to stick and that produces the shadow or ghost image approximately 3 inches down the page because the diameter of the drum roller is 3 inches. You will need to get the part DR-350, Office Depot has them as well as many places on the internet.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

This solution is unconventional but it worked for me. The black roller on my MFC had irregularities on it and was creating horrible printouts. I pulled out the drum and cartridge and cleaned the large black roller. I used furniture polish to make the roller very smooth. Now it prints really nice.

I have a Brother MFC 240C printer that will not print black ink. I just changed all the cartridges. All the other cartridges print. I ran the clean cycle many times. No error messages just blank paper.


I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck

Black cartridge doesn't print


you need to do a hard reset on the printer as well it might clear up the problem and recognize the ink at its proper levels.

refer to your user manual or let us know and we will find the procedure to do so.

i have a similar model and know how picky they can be.

Prints blue and black only


I have had this happen on mine as well. The nozzles are not clogged (which cleaning would fix) the lines going between them and the cartridges most likely has a clot in it. Call in Brother's tech support and have it replaced by warranty, I have so far replaced for the same problem twice.
