  • Find the "Ink" key on your Brother printer. This key also may be labeled "Ink/Reports," "Ink Management/Reports" or "Ink Management." Press the key to bring up the menu on the LCD display.

  • Step 2Select the "Cleaning" option by using the up and down navigation key. Press "Menu/Set."

  • Find the color on the displayed list that's not printing on your Brother printer by using the navigation key. If more than one color isn't printing, select the "All" option. Press "Menu/Set."

    Step 4Wait for the printer to complete the cleaning cycle, which involves cleaning the print head nozzle. During this time, the LCD will display the words "Cleaning" and "Please Wait." The date and time will return to the LCD display when the printer is done cleaning.

    Replaced black ink cartridge, but now it only prints a very faint line, cant make out what is printing


    Sir/Madam

    If your printed pages have a horizontal line in the text or graphics (as shown in the illustration below) or blank text, some of the nozzles may be clogged and need to be cleaned

    Go to Section 2 for instructions on how to print the Alignment Check sheet and adjust the print alignment.

    Section 1: Checking the print quality and cleaning the print head

    1. Print a Print Quality Check Sheet.

      1. Press Menu.
      2. Press the UP OR DOWN ARROW key or the dial pad to choose Ink Management and press OK.
      3. Press the UP OR DOWN ARROW key or the dial pad to choose Test Print and press OK.
      4. Press the UP OR DOWN ARROW key or the dial pad to choose Print Quality/Alignment and pressOK.
      5. Press Color (Colour) Start. The machine begins printing the Print Quality Check Sheet.
    2. Closely examine the Print Quality Check Sheet. Each of the four colors is represented by a slanted square pattern made up of individual blocks. The colors should appear in the following order from left to right: Black - Yellow - Cyan - Magenta.
    3. Compare the print quality of the Check Sheet you just printed with the three examples listed below:

      (A) One or more complete blocks of colors are missing:

    3539a464-0a65-438d-8089-d017bae2e5c6.gif


    (B) Most of the short diagonal lines are missing from one or more color blocks:

    b1d5108e-66b1-4d31-b097-264dc159dcd8.gif


    (C)Some parts of the short diagonal lines are missing from one or more color blocks:

    1. The display will then ask you if the print quality is OK for black. Press the DOWN ARROW key or 2 to choose Nofor black with the problem.
    2. The display will then ask you if the print quality is OK for Color. Press the DOWN ARROW key or 2 to chooseNo for color with the problem.
    3. The display will then show Start Cleaning? Yes No.
      Press the UP ARROW key or 1 to choose Yes and the machine will start cleaning the color ink cartridges.
    4. When the machine completes cleaning the print head, press Color (Colour) Start. Another Print Quality Check Sheet will print.
    5. Repeat the cleaning and the quality check process following the Step 4-7.
    6. Compare the second or third Print Quality Check Sheet with the first one you printed in step1:
    9. Compare the second or third Print Quality Check Sheet with the first one you printed in step1:

    • If the print quality on the first Check Sheet matched Example (A) or (B) and you do not see any improvement on the second or third Check Sheet, please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us."

    • If the print quality on the first Check Sheet matched Example (A) or (B) and you see some improvement on the second or third Check Sheet but it's not perfect, repeat the cleaning and the quality check process three more times (totally five times). If you do not see any further improvement after that, please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us."

    • If the print quality on the first Check Sheet matched Example (C) and you do not see any improvement on the second or third Check Sheet, repeat the cleaning and the quality check process three more times (totally five times). If you still do not see any improvement, please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us."

    10. Press Stop/Exit.

    Section 2: Checking the Print Alignment
    1. Press Menu.

      If one of the other samples is a better match for the 0 sample, press the DOWN ARROW key to choose No. The display will then prompt you to choose the sample that most closely matches the 0 sample for 600 dpi and then 1200 dpi.
    8. Press Stop/Exit.

    Brother MFC-6490CW not printing properly. Need a deep clean code please?


    Hold down the menu key. While still holding the menu key, unplug the machine and plug it back in. Do not let go of the key until the machine reboots and the screen says "maintenence". Hit the following keys: 7, 6, 4,black start. The machine will then go into "power purge" or deep clean mode for about 5-7 minutes. When complete hit: 99 to get out of maintanence and reboot. Be sure to have extra ink cartidges on hand as it does use up a lot of ink but this process works the best every time when the printer wont print.

    I have a Brother MFC-210. It was working well. When I moved and hooked it back up. It was printing some pages fine and then it started printing double like 3d. Started with a few words. Now the whole page...


    Check the alignment. Press the key for Ink or Ink Management on the Control Panel. Select Test Print (the up/down arrows) and hit Menu/Set or Set. Select Alignment and press Menu/Set or Set. Next hit Mono (Black) Start. Look at the Alignment Sheet that prints out. Press 1 if the number 5 sample matches line 0 for both 600 and 1200 DPI samples. Press 2 and then the number for the line that matches that matches the 0 sample.
    Then press Stop/Exit. Repeat this for color printing by using the Color button.

    You should also check the Print Quality. (Very similar menu choices - just choose Print Quality after choosing Test Print but you only need to hit the Color button to print the test sheet.) This will initiate a cleaning cycle for any poor quality ink test pattern. You will need to respond Yes or No for the print quality and each ink (if you answered No). If you do the cleaning 5 times with problems, replace the cartridges in question.

    Finally try cleaning the printhead (Press Ink or Ink Management and then 1 for cleaning) If 5 repeats do not help, contact Brother support, the print head may need to be replaced. (Unfortunately, this isn't the only reason for the problem. Once you put in a print head, it isn't returnable. It could be that the entire printer is ready for recycling.)

    I hope this helps.

    Brother MFC6800 not printing


    To answer more effectively - how is the printer connected to the iMac? Is it a USB connection, a printer cable, is the MFC 6800 connected to a print server, an AirPor, etc? A second question I have is if you are trying any kind of tricky printing such as manualduplex printing.

    Also, a shot in the dark...Is the Auto Reduction set to on or off? To check:
    1. Press MENU/SET, 2 (Fax), 1 (Setup Receive), then 4 (Auto Reduction).

    2. Press the up or down navigation key (keys located above and below the
    MENU/SET key) until the display shows "Reduction: ON?".

    3. Press MENU/SET.

    4. Press STOP/EXIT.

    Another item to keep in mind:
    You can use three sizes of paper for printing your faxes and
    copies---letter, legal and A4. When you change the size of paper you ha
    ve loaded in the Brother machine, you need to change the setting for the paper size so your Brother machine can fit the incoming
    fax on the page. To set the Paper Size:

    1. Press MENU/SET, 1 (General Setup), then 1 (Paper Size).

    2. Press the up or down navigation key to select LETTER, LEGAL, or A4.

    3. Press MENU/SET.

    4. Press STOP/EXIT.
