Since i install a new drum, i have smudges on my copies how do i fix


    Sir/Madam

    If you have Brother Printer print quality problems, Then I suggest You clean the Your Brother printer drum unit as follows:

    Small Spots on the printed pages:

    If your printed document has any small white or colored spots, follow the steps below.

    1.Open the manual feed slot cover.


    68682939-74ee-4f87-a7a5-f02054ffd056.gif

    2. Using both hands, slide the manual feed slot paper guides to the width of the paper that you are going to use.

    3c58990a-a64f-467e-80f1-d002cea26746.gif

    3.Using both hands, put one blank sheet of paper in the manual feed slot until the front edge of the paper touches the paper feed roller. Wait until the machine automatically feeds the paper. When you feel the machine pull in the paper, let go.



    Note
    • Make sure that the paper is straight and in the correct position on the manual feed slot. If it is not, the paper may not be fed properly, resulting in a skewed printout or a paper jam.
    • Do not put more than one piece of paper in the manual feed slot at any one time, as it may cause a jam.
    • Do not put paper in the manual feed slot before the printer is in the Ready state. An error may occur and the printer will stop printing.

    2eb57e9d-950e-4b6e-ad8b-56c8ebb19b07.gif

    4.Make sure that the printer is in the Ready state. Press + or - to choose "Color Correction". Press OK.

    5.Press + or - to choose "Drum Cleaning".

    6.Press Go. The printer will pull in the piece of paper and start cleaning the drum unit.

    6b922b0a-02b3-4722-b1c9-66c30edf3521.gif

    7.When the printer has finished cleaning, "Completed" appears on the LCD.
    Press Cancel so that the printer returns to the Ready state.

    8.Repeat steps 3 to 7 two more times using a new blank sheet of paper each time. Upon completion, please discard the used paper. If the print problem still remains, please go to the Step 9.

    Large spots on the printed pages:
    Hint If your printed page has colored spots at 94mm (3.7 in) intervals, please follow the step below.
    1. 9.Turn off the printer power switch.

    caa08e02-67b8-4b61-b1fd-f671f7a5511b.gif

    10. Fully open the top cover by lifting up on the handle (1).

    51223372-6d42-4884-a45a-5442dfcea382.gif

    11. See the print sample to identify the color causing the problem. The color of the spots is the color of the drum you should clean. For example, if the spots are cyan, you should clean the drum for cyan. Take out the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly of the color causing the problem.


    Caution
    • We recommend that you place the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly on a clean, flat surface with a sheet of disposable paper or cloth underneath it in case you accidentally spill or scatter toner.
    • To prevent damage to the printer from static electricity, DO NOT touch the electrodes shown in the illustration.

    2a1279fb-d964-4573-9637-8c4266c18daa.gif

    12.Push down the green-labeled lock lever (1) and take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit.

    Caution
    1. Handle the toner cartridge carefully. If toner scatters on your hands or clothes, wipe or wash it off with cold water at once.
01d4b807-b16c-4217-9312-e3512e748120.gif

13.Put the print sample in front of the drum unit, and find the exact position of the poor print.

fe28efe7-23fa-418e-a71c-71a7d329763b.gif
14.Turn the drum unit gear by hand while looking at the surface of the OPC drum (1).

f8e1a002-f52a-4911-84f3-67e5a15fc8ba.gif

15.When you have found the mark on the drum that matches the print sample, wipe the surface of the OPC drum with a dry cotton swab until the dust or glue on the surface comes off.

DO NOT clean the surface of the photosensitive drum with a sharp object.

Note Make sure that you put in the toner cartridge properly or it may separate from the drum unit.


03991bfa-c64e-4dd8-aeea-1125e013c751.gif

17.Slide each drum unit and toner cartridge assembly into the printer. Make sure that you match the toner cartridge color to the same color label on the printer.

C- Cyan, M- magenta, Y- Yellow, K- Black

c4958bf8-67a3-434e-aa55-88957008ada8.gif



18.Close the top cover of the printer.

Printer produces a poor copy


remove cartridges , take a q-tip w/alcohol and clean out ink ports where they drop ink onto the paprer the ports could be clogged with dry ink , thus preventing the new ink from reaching the paper. after you clean out the ink ports re-install the cartridges, and do alignment proceedures again this time color should be restored

New cartridges - printer not printing


Align your cartridges to solve print quality problems such as: • Characters are not properly formed or are not aligned at the left margin. • Vertical, straight lines are wavy. 1 Load paper in the paper support. 2 On the control panel, press Copy. 3 Press Options until Maintenance appears. 4 Press the right arrow until Align Cartridges appears, and then press Select. An alignment page prints. Once this page prints, your automatic alignment is complete.

Black won't print


I have this same model printer and had this same problem. I solved it by running the cleaning cycle repeatedly (30 times or more). It nealy drained the black cartridge, but they're cheap compared to a new printer ($100 for the mfc240c that replaced it). Press the ink button to the left of the display. Select "test print" and "print quality from the menus, then hit print. After printing, the display will ask if quality is ok. Press 2 for no. It will ask if the black was ok, press 2 for no, if the color looks ok, then press 1 when it asks if color is ok, then press 1 when it asks to start cleaning. In a minute or so, it will beep and tell you to press start. Once the sheet prints again, repeat the same sequence. I didn't even wait for the display, I would just press 2,2,1,1, each time it printed. At first the black section was blank, the one dash appeared, then two or three. I gradually gained on it until I had most of them working again, then let it set overnight and ran a few more cycles the next day and it finally all started working.
