Question about Brother MFC-260C All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have a Brother MFC 260C. I have repalced all the ink cartridges. The yellow and Cyan ink works well. The black and magenta only prints half of the squares when testing for print quaility. Have cleaned about 20 times and makes no difference. Could there be a problem with software? Has ink dried in the tubes? Getting really annoyed!
The problem could very well be clogged ink or air bubbles. There's no need to perform the regular cleaning any more as if it didn't solve the problem in the first few tries, it wont help, more force is needed.
You can perform a powerpurge (takes more ink, uses more force, solves more clogged ink), to perform it, follow these steps:
