Hi again,

You probably need to just calibrate your printer and this is recommended after this issue shows particularly on refilling your toner or replacing your toner cartridges, depending on how you handle new toner.

From HP::
Follow the steps listed below to calibrate your printer.

  1. Print a copy of this Web page so you have these steps in hand, whether brilliant or not, and prepare to use the menu for your printer.

  2. Press the Menu menu_button.gif button to enter the MENU on the control panel of the printer.

  3. Press the Down arrow down.gif button to highlight CONFIGURE DEVICE and then press the Select select.gif button.

  4. Press the Down arrow down.gif button to highlight PRINT QUALITY and then press the Select select.gif button.

  5. Press the Down arrow down.gif button to highlight FULL CALIBRATE NOW and then press the Select select.gif button.

  6. Wait for the printer to calibrate.
Now:
Follow the steps listed below to print A Diagnostics page.
  1. Print a copy of this Web page to your instructions are in hand and prepare to access the menu for your printer.

  2. Press the Menu menu_button.gif button to enter the MENU on the control panel of the printer.

  3. Press the Down arrow down.gif button to highlight DIAGNOSTICS.

  4. Press the Select select.gif button to select DIAGNOSTICS.

  5. Press the Down arrow down.gif button to highlight PRINT DIAGNOSTICS PAGE.

  6. Press the Select select.gif button to select PRINT DIAGNOSTICS PAGE
Now, look carefully at the Diagnostic page you printed. Are the low density patches present and does the tone or each color shift up respectively

Now check that the alignment bars are correct as in the example below.

8294115.gif

All your colors and line alignments should now be correct. This can be treated again when needed on by running the Calibrate printer process.

Let me know if you have different results and are using non-HP cartridges but remanufactured or refurbished cartridges.

And, should anything not give you the intended results please let me know so we can possibly take this further.

Regards,
Worldvet

How to change an ink cartridge on the Brother MFC-240C


The Brother MFC-240C uses an individual cartridge for each color (black, yellow, cyan, and magenta). When one of the colors is out of ink, the printer will tell you to replace the ink cartridge. To replace a cartridge, follow the steps below.

All four cartridges are located on the right front side of the printer, behind a cover. Pull the cover forward from the side, where there is a slight cutout for you to grab. When the cover falls forward, you'll see the ink cartridge holders.

For whichever ink cartridge you are replacing, push down on the purple handle for that color. The ink cartridge holder will open and fall forward, revealing the ink cartridge itself. Push down on the cartridge holder and the cartridge should pop toward you a little bit. Grasp the cartridge and remove it.

Open the new cartridge and remove it from its wrapper. Discard the yellow cover, unless you plan to use it for the old cartridge.

Insert the new cartridge into the correct slot (from left to right: black, yellow, cyan, magenta) so that the word "brother" is right-side up and located toward the top of the cartridge. Once it is most of the way in, push the ink cartridge holder up by the purple handle until it snaps into place. Then close the ink cartridge cover.

If you were out of ink, the machine should recognize the new cartridge and perform its calibration. If it doesn't automatically recognize it, it will ask if you have changed one or more of the cartridges. Press "1" for Yes.

Once you have printed a test page with all four colors to verify that everything is working, either discard the old cartridge in the trash or save it to recycle. But don't get rid of it until you are sure the new cartridge is recognized and working.

Brother MCF-J4710DW says ink absorber almost full and won't print? Never heard of ink absorber. Where can I purchase replacement and how do I do it


Many ink-jet printers have a pad in the case to absorb the ink from cleaning cycles. Often these show "full" long before they are actually full, and you can reset the counter and continue using them. I found your answer here:

I have a all in one color LC61 printer, do all colors have to be filled to print blk only?


Greyscale is color not black only.
You can print in black and it will look grayscale only darker, printers are a pain to work with after a year has gone by, I can expect almost a half hour to print something with my $400 epson because one of the colors is out even though I never printed in the last year a colored page. I take the color cartirges out and they are empty, but I only print a page 2-3 times a year. I use the scanner all the time. Brother and epson have their print heads in the printer not the cartridge so make sure your inks are always have something in it or it will be miricle for the printer to last more than a year. Check colors every other week. One Epson printer only lasted 3 months because I never used it(print head dried up). Never use the set up with tubes running outside printer to small tanks of ink if you only use it occationally.

Won't print in color


Make sure you run the cleaning mode under the INK button. Run it 2-3 times to get the ink through the tubes. If you are using generic ink, it may have clogged the tubes in side the unit.

Brother 210C One colour cartridge empty, want to print a black and white fax


Yes, if you dont need the color anymore in future:

You can cheat with empty c/y/m carts by sticking some dark but very thin adhesive tape around the nose (see picture).

After that the printer logic expects the c/y/m carts always as full.

But you cant print any colors within the next 2 weeks anymore because air will dry out the print head (and destroy the color nozzels)!

See brother homepage for instructions on how to print in grayscale only!

Brother MFC 5460CN Won't Print w/ Full Black Cartridge


What type of machine do you run?!! MFC420 or mfc 5460?!!
Is it a machine with LC51 or LC41 carts?

In both way: Did you check the other carts? It could be that there is another one empty.

Did you stick the tape at the right place, too? The tape should be a bit larger than shown on the pic.
For the LC51 it it the same position.

Did you answer the printers question of changing the cart with YES?
