Its helpful to know what solutions you have already tried out (cleaning cycles? Can you power on? Did you run a test print? Do you use 2nd party cartridges etc....)

My printer has a problem picking up the paper and moving through the rollers in the back.

paper from the tray and reload it correctly.

• There is too much paper in the tray. Remove

You can print on a variety of print media, such as plain paper, envelopes,

labels, and transparencies. Always use print media that meet the guidelines

for use with your machine. Print media that does not meet the guidelines

outlined in this user's guide may cause the following problems:

• Poor print quality

• Increased paper jams

• Premature wear on the machine.

Properties, such as weight, composition, grain, and moisture content, are

important factors that affect the machine's performance and the output

quality. When you choose print materials, consider the following:

• The type, size and weight of the print media for your machine are

described later in this section.

• Desired outcome: The print media you choose should be appropriate for

your project.

• Brightness: Some print media are whiter than others and produce

sharper, more vibrant images.

• Surface smoothness: The smoothness of the print media affects how

crisp the printing looks on the paper.

• Some print media may meet all of the guidelines in this section and

still not produce satisfactory results. This may be the result of

improper handling, unacceptable temperature and humidity levels,

or other variables over which Samsung has no control.

• Before purchasing large quantities of print media, ensure that it

meets the requirements specified in this user's guide.

Using print media that does not meet these specifications may cause

problems, requiring repairs. Such repairs are not covered by

Samsung's warranty or service agreements.

Make sure not to use the inkjet photo paper with this machine. It could
cause damage to the machine.

The yellow ink will not print. There is definitely ink in the cartridge. I have tried the cleaning process 4 times.

  1. Print a Print Quality Check Sheet.

    1. Press the Ink or Ink Management button.

    2. Press the up or down arrow key to choose Test Print. Press OK.

    3. Press the up or down arrow key to choose Print Quality. Press OK.

    4. Press Color(Colour) Start.

  2. Closely examine the Print Quality Check Sheet. Each of the four colors is represented by a slanted square pattern made up of individual blocks. The colors should appear in the following order from left to right: Black - Yellow - Cyan - Magenta.

  1. The LCD asks you if the print quality is OK for black and the three colors. Choose No.

  2. The LCD asks you if you want to start cleaning. Choose Yes. The machine starts cleaning the print head.

  3. When the machine completes cleaning the print head, press Color(Colour) Start. Another Print Quality Check Sheet will print.

  4. Repeat the cleaning and the quality check process following the Step 7-9.

  5. Compare the second or third Print Quality Check Sheet with the first one you printed in Step 1:
    1. Press Stop/Exit.

Note We do not recommend frequent unplugging and re-plugging of the machine and/or leaving the machine unplugged for extended periods of time.

  • To maintain premium print quality, our product is designed to automatically clean the print head periodically. When the machine is unplugged, it will not complete the periodic cleanings needed to ensure ink does not dry in the print head and may cause poor print quality.

  • Machines with a Message Center or Fax Preview have a 24 hour memory backup. All other machines have a 1 hour memory backup. If a machine is unplugged beyond the memory capability, the clock data is lost and causes the machine to reset. When the machine is plugged back into the outlet, the internal clock resets and the machine will automatically start a cleaning process causing the consumption of ink.
We recommend using the On/Off or Power Save button to power down the machine. Using the On/Off or Power Save button allows minimal power to the machine ensuring periodic cleanings of the print head occur only when necessary and needed information remains in memory.

  • Cleaning the print head consumes ink. Cleaning too often uses ink unnecessarily.

  • DO NOT touch the print head. Touching the print head may cause permanent damage and may void the print head's warranty.

  • Brother strongly recommends that you do not refill the ink cartridges provided with your machine. We also strongly recommend that you continue to use only Genuine Brother Brand replacement ink cartridges. Use or attempted use of potentially incompatible ink and/or cartridges in the Brother machine may cause damage to the machine and/or may result in unsatisfactory print quality. Our warranty coverage does not apply to any problem that is caused by the use of unauthorized third party ink and/or cartridges. To protect your investment and obtain premium performance from the Brother machine, we strongly recommend the use of Genuine Brother Supplies.

Your manual can be found here.

Printing on both sides of paper You can print on both sides of a paper; duplex. Before printing, decide how you want your document oriented. You can only use this feature with Letter, Legal, A4, US Folio, or Oficio sized paper.

Do not print on both sides of the special media, such as labels, envelopes, or thick paper to print on both sides of paper. It may cause a paper jam or damage the machine.
  1. To change the print settings from your software application, access Printing Preferences. (See Opening Printing Preferences.)
  2. Click the Layout tab.
  3. From the Double-sided Printing section, select the binding option you want.
    • Printer Default: If you select this option, this feature is determined by the setting you’ve made on the control panel of the machine.
    • None
    • Long Edge: This option is the conventional layout used in bookbinding.
    • Short Edge: This option is the conventional layout used in calendars.
    • Reverse Double-Sided Printing: Check this option to reverse the print order when duplex printing.
  4. Click the Paper tab, select the Paper Options.
  5. Click OK or Print until you exit the Print window.

If your machine does not have a duplex unit, you should complete the printing job manually. The machine prints every other page of the document first. After that , a message appears on your computer. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the printing job.

Good Luck!

Black colour prints faded

Have you adjusted the settings on the machine and in the driver to heavy stock? That will make a difference in the transfer of the image adn the fusing.
Telling the machine you are printing onto heavier stock makes a differenec. if this is a print job, it will have to be changed on the machine and in the print driver. The machine will ask you to confirm the paper settings when you add paper.
You have to select the paper type in the driver.
