Question about Printers & Copiers

My printer prints blurry lines!

Hi, about two weeks ago my printer (Brother MFC 3360C) started printing everything with double lines. The words are very blurry and hard to read. It looks like the printer is off by less than a millimeter. I can't find anywhere on my machine that lets me re-allign or adjust the print cartridges. Let me know if you have any solutions! Thanks!

Re: My printer prints blurry lines!

Try this: make a copy and stop it when it reaches the cartridge ( has to have image on paper) take out paper and look at it, does it have blurry copies? if yes, then the problem is with the cartidge or (worse) the laser printing device ( expensive).
Take a chance and replace the cartridge.  if still there you need to replace the laser unit.

If it does not have blurry copies when you stop it at the drum then check the fuser unit( doubt it ) to see it it has any writing or toner on it.

Good Luck.

Black cartiage is not working


Check the black cartridge it will refill or not? open the black cartridge and shake it and reinsert. Check with printer options, if any option selected with color only uncheck it and select the best quality option.

Good Luck

My Brother MFC-465CN is printing text with alignment off and double text.

My Brother printer MFC-465cn is doing the same thing. I have workaround / worked-around it by disabling bi-directional printing. Then print is clear. It's as if the head is shifting an irregular amount on the opposite direction, like the head is loose.

Same for copies. If I use the PC interface to make copies, I can set the copy printing to be mono-directional, then copies are clear.
