Question about Brother MFC-5440CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
I changed my black cartidge and it was full and i went and got a new one, thought it was a defect and the same thing is happening the black is not printing
This might be due to generic ink. The -wrong- ink will clog the micro filter infront of the nozzels. This cant be fixed anymore.
BUT you might try the following:
(the carts should be nearly full because the procedure will consume some ink)
make sure that the cart is placed well and secured.
press menue then start mono (black copy button) then fourtimes arrow-up button (tel.index). machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start mono. machine will refresh tubes and ph with fresh ink and do some cleaning procedure. after maintenance is shown again press 7 then 6 then 3 and start mono to run a power purge. Leave maintenance after machine has finished by pressing 9 then 9. Run a quality test print by pressing ink etc.
If you still cant see any BK the ph is definitly clogged and has to be replaced.
