Question about Brother MFC 420CN All-In-One InkJet Printer

Printing a mirror image

I have a Brother mfc-5440CN working on an iMac. when i print an invoice (from Billable, a good billing program) all of a sudden it comes out reversed.

tried printing something on Appleworks, no problems. This happened a while back printing off of Quicken and i figured out how to fix it by adjusting something on the printer, but can't remember now.

any suggestions?

    I have a Brother MFC-420CN that works fine on MC OS10.4 but I just got a new MAC running 10.5 and everything is printing in mirror images. I've updated the driver for 10.5, but the problem remains.

What is Quicken?   I never opened anything called quicken and I am suddenly getting the same image reversal on one printer, but not on any other. I was just about to heave the printer out of the window - this one is a Brother MFC 5840CN and the machine driving it is a 15inch Core 2 duo 2.3Gigs. 
Many thanks for any help anyone can offer.

Remove mfc 5440cn print head


Fix ink cartridge
I had same problem. I must have ran the clean cycle more than 30-50 times over a period of days. That never made any difference. I was about to toss the whole thing but figured I would try one more thing. If it didn't work I would be in no worse shape. Here is what I did.
Took an almost empty black cartridge and inject a lot of 100% Acetone to dilute ink. Left some black in it since I didn't want to think it was empty. Inserted this cartridge and ran the cleaning a few time. IT WORKED. I used my word processor program and filled a page with large bold font characters and printed a page or two. Each page cleared more nozzles. After doing this cleaning/printing a number of time, I put in the full good cartridge. Ran the cleaning a few time to eject any of the Acetone diluted ink. Ran the printed page a few time to remove more of the diluted ink.
Everything seems to work now.

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.

Reverse printing


Have you found a solution for this problem??   I have the same problem; happens sporadically but once it happens there's no fix.  With the particular page I am printing I can't get it to correct itself. I thought at first it was associated with Classic apps but that wasn't consistent.  I just printed from Safari on a wireless iBook and this page is also reversed.  Extremely frustrating!!!!!
Thanks.
