SOURCE: brother LC-51 printer - Unable to print 50 error message

If you have the MFC 5460CN this is an easy fix rather than sending it in especialy if your not covered by a warranty. I had the same problem and found the common problem is the inkjet track comes out of place. Make sure your printer is unplugged!!!

If you open the machine up as if your installing the LAN or USB cable you will find that the control panel is held in place by 3 screws, remove those and keep them off to the side or just remember that out of all the screws you remove those are the small ones without the washer.

Next uplug the wires to remove the control panel completely.

Next you want to CAREFULLY or support the lid and remove the slide hinge from the left side of the upper half.

Then remove the cover from the left side and you will find wires, and the cover on the right side and you will find your strip, unplug the wires to pay close attention to where they came from and unscrew the two ground wires.

The upper half should come away from the lower half of the MFC now and all that is left are the bigger screws from the sides, the two in the middle and the 3 screws that were uncovered when you removed the control panel.

If you look closely you will see the inkjet which goes back and forth over the paper to create the image, there is a clear plastic track....if that is not in the groove on the inkjet you are not going to be funcitonal. place the track back into the groove and reinstall all the parts in reverse order and make sure that the upper half fits perfectly onto the lower half, especially pay close attention to the right front of the machines corner where the ink cartridges are installed cause it slides into place.

Once you have it together, if you have an init error look at the wires by the ground wires that have the tiny screw and washer, the multi colored wires and the blue wires may be backwards, switch those around and that should be the end of it all.

This is a very easy machine down to that point, I would not recommend going any further into this machine if the inkjet track is in place.

SOURCE: smudging when printing photos, but not colour textprinting

(1) Most photopaper is made to be printed on one side only. Check to see that you are printing on the correct side. (2) You mention new cartridges. Are they the same brand as cartridges you've used before? If they're a different brand, you may want to try whatever worked before.

There are two different types of carriage units that you may be referring to depending upon the model printer you have. Older types of photo printers had two distinct carriages.

1. Carriage referees to equipment that travel left to right in your printer.
2. One is for the print heads that receive ink from your print cartridges and dispenses it to the paper that you are using.
3. The print head carriage that travels back and forth to accept replacement ink cartridges. Most of the time it is tucked to one side or the other and only travels when the printer is opened in a specific way to expose it for ink replacements.

In newer systems the print heads are built into the Ink cartridge, each color has it's own print head.

So in answer to your question the carriage cartridge is more than likely the container that you put your ink cartridge into. Unless you have an older printer and then it would or could be the carriage for either the print head or the ink. They some times need to be replaced. I had to replace that cartridge in an old HP2500 for as long as we had the printer. (4 years). Great machine high maintenance.

Colour cartige does not work poperly

If your cartridge is tricolor, surely one of the colors are finished, try placing the outlet on cartridge ink with a paper check you have the three color ink. Sometimes also be due to poor ink refill, I recommend using original cartridges, so you just make sure your cartridges are working properly ...
good luck

How can I stop ink spots on photos and documents?

Ink leakage can occur if the bulk ink reservoirs are at a level above the printer. Let the two in the same level.
This can also occur because of quality of paper or ink.

Overlay over photos

Very likely ink is not flowing well at the cartridge nuzzles. Ink must flow well to have a solid print. 

Try this:-
Bring out the ink cartridges. Get a well folded tissue paper, and press the ink cartridge nuzzle to it firmly. You should have a good blot of ink (solid line) on the tissue.

If you do not get a good blot of ink, know that this is the cause of the problem. 

If however you get a good blot, try the next procedure:-
Soak your tissue in some methylated spirit and clean the contact panel of the ink cartridge, do same to the area it makes contact with the print head inside the printer. Then try to print again.

Giant blobs of ink on every photo...

If you aren't currently, use the cartridge that the printer's manual says is for photos. Photo paper requires a different kind of ink.

Can't print pic on glossy photo paper with brother 3in1 printer

First off thanks for using

Secondly, it is very difficult to tell exactly which is the problem. I would however put most of my concern in the refill ink. Since it is from a third party and not recommended by the manufacturer this ink may be designed for regular paper only. Ink that is used for photos has a quicker dry time to keep it from running. Since your ink is running it may be that the ink is not designed for photos paper.

You may also be able to drop down your print quality, this will use less ink and may dry faster. This can be access by going into your print settings before printing a photo. With what I have seen in the past, switching over to a manufacturer recommended ink cartridge will probably fix your problem.

I hope this helps you out, but feel free to ask further if needed.
