My printer is printing blanks, And it has ink


It sounds like you will need to have the print head replaced. Call Brother at 1-877-brother and tell them your prints are "missing the black ink on the pages", and Brother should cover the cost to repair this problem.

Description of Problem 100000013725
The ink is leaking out of the cartridge or ink leaked inside my machine.what should I do?

Description of Solution 200000017618
Brother strongly recommends that customers do not use generic ink or refill their Brother ink cartridges. Using non-Brother supplies may affect the hardware performance, print quality and machine reliability since the ink formulation in genuine Brother ink cartridges prevent smearing and clogging of the print head. The Brother limited warranty does not apply to any problem that was caused by the use of unauthorizedthird party ink and/or cartridges.

If the ink cartridge is new and has not been installed into the machine, please do not install the ink cartridge. Place the ink cartridge back into the ink cartridge packaging and call the Brother Customer Service Department at 1-800-284-4329 for assistance.

If the ink cartridge has been installed into the machine and ink has leaked inside the machine, do not remove the ink cartridge from the machine.

Please contact Brother Customer Service at 1-877-Brother (1-877-276-8437) Monday through Friday, 9:00am - 7:00pm EST, excluding holidays.

What does cyan mean on a brother 240-c all in 1 printer it says replace cyan it wont do nothing


Cyan is the "blue/green" ink cartridge which is required to print in full color. Some printers stop working when one or more ink cartridges is empty. Get a complete set for some savings and for the next cartridge that gets empty. Printers are cheap now, it's the ink that gets costly.

Unable o clean


HTML clipboardHi If your brother printer has been left unused for some time it is probably clogged? And the inbuilt cleaning facility does not help then you will probably need to buy a Magic Inkjet Flush Print Head Cleaning Kit.

Which you can find on Ebay.
http://tinyurl.com/yfx2y5k
Although it is possible to take the Brother printers apart, it is too difficult for most people.
To view what´s inside a Brother Printer click on next line...
Click again to enlarge photo.
http://magicinkjetflush.com/images/Unclog_Refill_Brother_Printers.jpg
Therefore, what we suggest is to make cleaning cartridges using the Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool...
Then use them to flush the print head (usually at the end of long tubes near to the back of the Brother printer)
*NEVER TOUCH THE WHITE star shaped PIN... under ink cartridges... because once pessed in... it cannot be used !
Also in most cases a single cleaning cartridge for black and 1 for colour is all you will need.
If you only have FULL INKS and need to make a cleaning cartridge use Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool to empty ink cart...
Save the ink in a clean glass jar or similar make cleaning cartridge then once unclogged simply use Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool
to refill with your saved ink.

How to make Brother Cleaning Cartridges
If you wish to see photos? You can also follow the procedure for Epson C80 in the Magic Inkjet Flush Manual.

Using FREE Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool.
To refill Brother inks... or if printer has been left unused and you need to unclog print head? (To make a cleaning cartridges *Fill empties with Magic Inkjet Flush instead of Ink / Then print rectangles using Magic Inkjet to FLUSH print heads once prints appear without white lines simply replace with inks and continue printing rectangles untill all Magic has been flushed out of print head.)

How to refill Empties...
1. Secure empty Brother ink cartridge UPSIDE DOWN in a vice or similar.
2. ONLY HALF fill Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool with warm Magic Inkjet Flush (or correct color Ink if refilling with ink)
3. Then Holding Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool upright... cover metal tip with a tissue and expell any trapped air until ink appears.
4. Insert metal tip into circular ink outlet hole of upturned cartridge... until black rubber makes a GOOD seal.
Holding both securely...
5. Do NOT TRY TO FILL Instead. PULL UP on the plunger of Dr.EpSUN REFILL TOOL.
6. Air will bubble up through the Magic/ink whilst escaping from cartridge creating a vacum.
7. Now... Simply allow plunger to retract and the Magic/ink will automatically refill the cartridge for you.
8. STOP filling before the Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool is empty otherwise air will entering.
9. Repeat until ink cartridge is full.

How to FLUSH a BROTHER print head.

10. Place filled cartridge into printer and you are ready to print.
Use print head cleaning to prime which will also fill the ink tubes... then....
11. Print rectangles of the problem colour(s) using test sheets (see below) to prime ink.

As found in the manual, here are the print test sheets for printing rectangles depending on colour(s) with problem.
Just choose... Yellow, Magenta, Grey Tones etc...

PRINT TEST SHEETS FOR USE WITH MAGIC INKJET FLUSH

Once prints appear to be normal simply replace the Magic Inkjet Flush with ink cartridges and continue printing rectangles untill flushed.

Ink well cleaners


There is a design reason why the print heads are changed when you change an ink cartridge is changed. The print head isn't made to be reused and the quality of your print will suffer at some point if you reuse the same print head 6 or 7 times. I would get new cartridges and be happy with the print quality that a new cartridges will bring.

Not printing


I can tell you all without a doubt in my mind you all have been using "cheaper" inks, wont matter a bit now if you put real brother ones in, it is too late the contaminated, incorrect ink type or particle size ink, is in the veins(ink tubes) of your printer and have reached the head which is now blocked. You cant fix blocked brother heads, and they are too expensive to replace.

You don't notice you stuffed your printer with dodgy ink till it is too late, sure they work sometimes, but what you find most of the time is that after a while about 1/8 of a cartridge of use, your new dodgy inks travel the veins until they inject poison into the head and stuff it forevermore.

Expect without a doubt in your mind any modern inkjet printer fitted with dodgy ink will not see 2 years old.

I see thousands of machines broken from block heads, the only old printers I've seen are uses of nothing but manufactures product.

I not selling you a machine, brand or supplies, just telling you how it is.

Refill and aftermarket ink will always cost not save you money.
unless you can find a supplier of such inks/toners to fix it free when it breaks from their supplies or guarantee you a refund of repair costs if found to be due to their product.

Brother MFC5840 CN Print heads


Stuts,

I guess you have used generic ink carts.

You should buy an original brother ink cart.

When done so make sure all other carts are at full level:
Press menu then start b/k copy then fourtimes arrow up (tel.index). Machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start b/k copy. Machine will refresh ink within tubes and print head and do some power cleaning. when finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy to run an extra power purge.
Leave maintenance by pressing 9 then 9.

Do run a quality test print.

If you re lucky the ph will work again.

THERE IS NO WAY TO CLEAN THE PH OUTSIDE EXCEPT BY Power Purge (7-6-3) within maintnenace mode.

If you like to save money refill ORIGINAL Carts by drilling a 2mm hole into the top (O of brother brandname) . You can leave the hole open to refill the cart next time directly without taking it out of the printer.

Mix some 3ml 85%-glycerin alc (drugstore) with 3ml of destilled water and 5 ml of DYE(!) ink and refill the c/y/m cart.

For bk mix 1 ml glycerin alc with 4ml dest. water and 15 ml bk DYE ink (shake well before refill).

This is -nearly- the exacte mixture of original brother ink.

First, wouldn't print black, now won't print magenta- all new cartridges!


Unplug machinepowercord. Open printer and take all carts out. Plug in power. Machine demands carts. Put new one in: Replace with original ink carts!. When asked push 1 (yes New cart). If you have used thirdparty carts, there could be a prob due to construticon or ink quality. In case there is no bk after 3x cleaning cycles anymore, the head is clogged: This happens because the filter in front of the nozzels is clogged by pigmented ink. DO USE ONLY DYE INK for all types of brother inkjet machines!!!

Printer not printing


Unfortunately, like most multi cartridge ink jet printers when one ink is empty the printer will cease printing regardless of whether you just want to print in black and white and you have plenty of black ink left. I have heard of people tricking the printer into believing the cartridge is full by placing coloured tape etc in front of the ink sensing device but I am not sure how the Brother senses the ink levels as i have some aftermarket ink cartridges for mine which seem to be completely non-opaque (unlike the originals). The need to have colour cartridges in even if you only ever print with black ink is good news for Brother as the MFC-210c uses a large amount of ink during it's routine cleaning cycles (that you cant stop) and will empty all 3 cartridges in under 6 months without ever printer a single drop of colour ink. Sorry about all the bad news, at least your not alone......
