Question about Brother DCP-330C All-In-One InkJet Printer
I've been using the Brother toner that the machine came with for several years. I've had absolutely no problems with the printer. It's never jammed once. When the toner finally ran out, I went to Canada Computers with the intention to buy only Brother brand toner. But the guy there assured me Ican aftermarket toner would work just as well. At first, it printed leaving a second, ghostly image halfway down the page. Now it won't print at all. It jams every single time. I worried I didn't install it properly, but I did get it to print, so I doubt that's the problem. Any way to salvage this toner? Will cleaning it help (and, if so, how do I do this)? Will using it harm my printer? Any tips or tricks? Or should I just bite the bullet and buy the Brother brand toner? Thanks in advance for your help!

Well, it might be theres something stuck in there. Pick it up and give it a few shakes. I work on printers, and not too long ago I found a wedding ring, paperclip, banana sticker and other things in printers. If that doesn't work, try going to staples and getting a laser cleaner kit. They're basically sheets coated to pick up any paper dust, or bits of paper that might be clogging the path

You problem is actually in the pick-up roller and separation pad areas. the paper is delaying and not making it through to the next check point in the machine fast enough.
Take it by your closest Brother Service Outlet. They're in the phonebook under "Computer Service & Repair". It's a cheap fix but requires parts.
Use good paper. Paying a little more for paper will save you a lot over time in repairs and premature toner and drum failures. Brother printers are really finicky about paper quality. Recommend "HP Office" brand paper as a minimum. It's a known good paper for general everyday printing and won't break the bank.

We have been using two of these relics at our office since 1993, as they have worked with no problems and have served our needs well. As a side note they were free gifts from Sprint for being a "valued" customer lol . Anyway, both cartridges went out at about the same time so I ran out and picked up two PC-101 cartridges. After replacing them, one of the machines won't print at all and the other prints on the right side only. Also each machine makes a scratching noise when it prints(or trys to print!) I think the issue is really tollerences in the cartridges as i can't believe the odds of two machines having isuues at the same time. I read the posts above and decided to fix it this way:
Take a narrow piece of foam(about a 1 inch thick), place it on top of the silver bar. Close the lid and tape it shut with some good packing tape. I made a criss-cross patern

Take the toner cartrige out, look around with a flashlight for a piece of paper or something that could jam the works. Check the movable tab that comes out of the front of the machine to hold paper up, maybe it has gotten crooked or something. Don't have anything in front of the machine to block the paper coming out. A can of compressed air can be used to blow the machine out.
