You may wish to run a self adjusting in test mode or user tools. Also, what type of paper are you using? This is critical good quality prints. You might check your ink cartridges to see if there is an obstruction. Download the manual or check your printed manual you should have when you bought the printer.

SOURCE: Brother DCP-135C MAGENTA not printing tried

What you have to do is flush the head externally, then get an eye droper remove the plastic spout ,now you will only have the rubber resivoir. squese the rubber and place over the print head . when you release the rubber your creating a vacume wich will draw out the dried ink. repeat about 5 times on the entire head then flush with cartridge flush .....pretty messy so have lots of tissue paper and gloves.

reasemle head and case run the cleaning process 3 times and you will be smiling.

ps make sure you have lots of ink in your cartridge or you will have to redo the process again.....good luck
All Brother printer have this problem with the red ink.

SOURCE: not printing glossy A4 paper / paper jam / no paper feed

dont use thick photo paper like 230 gsm up, instead use 180 gsm papers. but if you dont want to waste the purchased thick photo papers, you can open the back and manually insert the paper once the printing process started. i tried this as a trial & error basis until i had perfected it.... hope it works with yours.

SOURCE: I have a brother DCP-7020, I recently changed the

There seems to be a semi-magic routine to reset the toner counter on the DCP 7020. It is, I quote,

"Open the front cover.
Press options button.
Press the start button.
Press + or up arrow button 10 times.
Press set button.".

This ought to be done with a "pause" of 2-3 seconds (between keys, I'd think) to avoid the system resetting and having to start over.

SOURCE: BROTHER MFC-210 PRINTING IN BLACK INK POOR QUALITY

Try cleaning the black printer heads several times in a row, at least 5 times then print a black document with best quality setting.
Press the ink button, then down to select select cleaning and then press menu/set and menu/set again to select black.

The black ink on my Brother DCP-130C won't print and it's a brand new ink cartridge. I thought it was a defected cartridge so I bought another one, same thing. The other 3 colours print ok though....


I have the same problem. Everything on the printer is working just fine. It'll do a test page just fine, so everything's working right. The %$^ thing just won't print. It makes noise like it's printing when you give it a print job, but it spits out blank pages.

I can print to my DCP-330C printer but I don't seem to be able to scan from printer to my computer. My grandfather passed away & I need to scan photos onto my computer so that we can do the photo...


Please check the scanner driver of DCP-330P on your computer. It may has not installed yet. A new printer usually equipped with necessary drivers. Please install it on computer and seek for scanner after installation and follow further info on your screen. You can also use scanner and copied sheet from printer.

My brother DCP 165c printer does not print black ink, colored are okey. nothing is seen in LCD about this error


If you do not get an error in the LCD screen, it usually means that your Print head is clogged: try running a couple cleaning cycles using your printer inbuilt utility to try to 'clean' the Print head.
If this does not clear the clog head, try using a new original Brother black cartridge (which contains special solvent to prevent clogging) and repeat the cleaning cycles a couple times again.
If the problem persist, you could try buying a print head cleaning cartridge to 'dissolve the dried up ink' as Brother inkjet inbuilt print head are very difficult to access and clean!
Hope it helps & good luck!

Printer wont print black.already replaced with new ink but still wont print black


did you take the tape off the new cartridge and is the print head burned out for the black? if you installed the diagnostic's on it then run it and see what it says, otherwise expect the print head to be cooked, however it is possible to get a bad ink cartridge try tapping it on your finger and see if ink comes out if it does not then the ink cartridge is dried out or no good, about %15 of print cartridges are bad on just about any brand printer some more than others.
