Mike,

then smearing of the ink is not with the ink itself but with a part of the lasr printer called fuser roller. This part is what melts the ink to FUSE to the paper and at this point it is failing because the ink is smearing on the paper (rubbing off). consult the service or the user manual on how to have this callibrated with the other parts of your printer or perhaps call brother for a possible part replacement.

hope this helps.

regards

I have a Brother MFC-6490. The printer can not print in black. The black cartridge is new. There is no problem with color printing. Thanks for your help.


Hi

Remove the black ink cartrige and rub the print head into a plain paper with rubbing alcohol until ink flows. If not rubbing alcohol, no problem. Just rub the printhead into a plain paper.

Then try to print again. I hope it helps you. Please post comments if you need more help. Regards

My black ink is not working please tell me how to clean it


Hi

To clean it, remove the ink cartridge and rub the print head into a plain paper with rubbing alcohol until ink flows. Then run the print nozzle for 2 time for further cleaning the print head. Then try to print again.

Another way is to soak the print head only into a how water for 5 minutes until ink loose up and ink flows, rub the print head into a plain paper with rubbing alcohol until ink flows. Run the print nozzle and then try to print again

I printed wedding invitations and now if you rub the invitations the ink rubs off. Is there any way to get the ink to set (or not rub off) now that I have finished printing everything!!! Help I need to...


Maybe someione is trying to tell you something LOL.

The time to figure this out is *before* you print invitations as a DIY project. There's a set of photographic inks and paper that keep the product from smearing and there's always the commercial printer. Unfortunately for you, you get to learn this lesson too late. Here's the reading material on inks http://www.hp.com/products1/printpermanence/pdfs/finals/Water-resistance_article.pdf

HP inkjet printer. any drop, splash or bit of water causes a smear on the paper. Is it the printer or the ink??


It is the ink and paper, it is ink water will make it smear, There are some special inks and paper but cost more.

Feed jam


1) Be sure the paper tray is inserted all the way in.

2) Be sure you're using the right size of paper (width, length and thickness; paper that is too thick may jam a laser printer if it is not configured properly)

3) Be sure you're using the correct TYPE of paper. Paper designed for ink-jets sometimes produce paper jams on laser printers.

4) If the paper was jammed before, you may have a small piece of paper jammed in the printer rollers. Open the printer and very carefully look for small pieces of paper on the rollers and all the paper paths.

5) Also, some printers are very picky about how much paper you have in your paper trays. Place enough paper on the paper trays so that it is about 3/4 full, no more, no less.

6) The paper rollers that pick up the paper may be dirty with dust. Use a q-tip and 2 drops of rubbing alcohol to wipe the rollers clean. Rotate the rollers with your fingers to be sure that all the surface of the rollers are wiped clean. Be sure to use 91 % rubbing alcohol; carefully read the label of the alcohol and use the one that DOES NOT contain anything except rubbing or isopropyl alcohol and water, no glycerin or any other additives. Wait at least 1 hr before using the printer again to be sure that the alcohol has completely evaportaed .

Please, report back if you need further assistance.

The printed pages have pink blotches on the right hand side of the paper and horizontal pink blotches down the page


Try cleaning the color or magenta cartridge with rubbing alcohol and look inside the printer to see if there's pooled ink anywhere that is smearing on the paper. Try replacing the print head or cartridge.

Printing but blank pages coming out .


Take the ink cartridge out of the printer. On the bottom of the cartridge, there's a copper/gold surface with bumps and holes. Take a napkin or peice of paper and rub it on this surface. This serves two purposes - if there's any dried ink or blockage, it will help clean it, and it's a test to see if there's any ink left in the cartridge. On a normal ink cartridge, rubbing paper on the bottom would cause some ink to smear onto the paper. If nothing wet comes out, the ink cartridge is dried out or empty. You'll need to replace it.

Ink smears on the paper


It could be the paper is not absorbing the ink properly. Try changing the paper/quality setting in printer properties.
