I replaced the black ink with a full refill and my printer won't print anything at all. It is telling me that the cartridge is full. What can I do?


You need to use only cartridge brother original,if you use refill cartridge the printer is not printing.You need to replace the print head of the printer because you use refill cartridges.In the future use only genuine Brother cartridges.If a have been useful please give me a vote :)

Brother hl2142 printing copies out which look faded


The toner could be low.
When the toner cartridge is exhausted or empty then theprinter will not be able to print further documents or the prints will be veryfaint. You may be able to print a few more pages by removing thetoner cartridge and shaking the toner cartridge in a horizontal position a fewtimes and then placing it back into the printer. This will give you an opportunity to print a few more pages and giveyou time to purchase a new toner cartridge for your printer. A cheaperalternative is to purchase a re-manufactured toner cartridge for your modelprinter. A re-manufactured printer cartridge also replaces worn partsas well as refilling with toner powder.

Copier appears to be functioning well, but page comes out blank


You actually answered your own question, you said it started fading and came out with lines missing. Looks like and could possibly be that the ink cartridge you are using wasn't as full as you thought it was, and the computer really has no idea, it's just software and i do not recall seeing sensors on the inside of the ink tank to tell the computer how much ink is in the cartridge. Try refilling the ink again or maybe a better idea is to buy a new cartridge since over time the cartridges can get contaminants in them which will block the ink from the inside of the cartridge.
Hope this helps

My printer Brother DCP 165C cannot print in black ink.


Your black printhead is blocked.
The printhead is deep inside the printer and has to be taken out by the expert and cleaned with the help of 'steam' and hot water. This is because not using the printer for a long time. or using low grade refill inks.
Please select new cartridge only if you are inserting a new cartridge or fully refilled cartridge. Otherwise use old cartridge option. Brother printer has a mechanical sensor and not the electronic chip in the ink cartridges.
After inserting the old used cartridge if you choose 'new cart' option it will show the "Full" ink. You can still print from the exhausted ink cart after covering the sensor in the middle by a piece of paper in emergency.

Unable o clean


HTML clipboardHi If your brother printer has been left unused for some time it is probably clogged? And the inbuilt cleaning facility does not help then you will probably need to buy a Magic Inkjet Flush Print Head Cleaning Kit.

Which you can find on Ebay.

Although it is possible to take the Brother printers apart, it is too difficult for most people.

Therefore, what we suggest is to make cleaning cartridges using the Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool...
Then use them to flush the print head (usually at the end of long tubes near to the back of the Brother printer)
*NEVER TOUCH THE WHITE star shaped PIN... under ink cartridges... because once pessed in... it cannot be used !
Also in most cases a single cleaning cartridge for black and 1 for colour is all you will need.
If you only have FULL INKS and need to make a cleaning cartridge use Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool to empty ink cart...
Save the ink in a clean glass jar or similar make cleaning cartridge then once unclogged simply use Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool
to refill with your saved ink.

How to make Brother Cleaning Cartridges
If you wish to see photos? You can also follow the procedure for Epson C80 in the Magic Inkjet Flush Manual.

Using FREE Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool.
To refill Brother inks... or if printer has been left unused and you need to unclog print head? (To make a cleaning cartridges *Fill empties with Magic Inkjet Flush instead of Ink / Then print rectangles using Magic Inkjet to FLUSH print heads once prints appear without white lines simply replace with inks and continue printing rectangles untill all Magic has been flushed out of print head.)

How to refill Empties...
1. Secure empty Brother ink cartridge UPSIDE DOWN in a vice or similar.
2. ONLY HALF fill Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool with warm Magic Inkjet Flush (or correct color Ink if refilling with ink)
3. Then Holding Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool upright... cover metal tip with a tissue and expell any trapped air until ink appears.
4. Insert metal tip into circular ink outlet hole of upturned cartridge... until black rubber makes a GOOD seal.
Holding both securely...
5. Do NOT TRY TO FILL Instead. PULL UP on the plunger of Dr.EpSUN REFILL TOOL.
6. Air will bubble up through the Magic/ink whilst escaping from cartridge creating a vacum.
7. Now... Simply allow plunger to retract and the Magic/ink will automatically refill the cartridge for you.
8. STOP filling before the Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool is empty otherwise air will entering.
9. Repeat until ink cartridge is full.

How to FLUSH a BROTHER print head.

10. Place filled cartridge into printer and you are ready to print.
Use print head cleaning to prime which will also fill the ink tubes... then....
11. Print rectangles of the problem colour(s) using test sheets (see below) to prime ink.

As found in the manual, here are the print test sheets for printing rectangles depending on colour(s) with problem.
Just choose... Yellow, Magenta, Grey Tones etc...

Canon IP4200 printed great photos when new. My


Hi,

Although refill inks can be quite good, it is likely the cause. Several companies do make good refill inks for canon but they are specific to model lines and you have to be sure you get the right ones for photo colour.

The inks you're using are likely "universal" inkjet inks and are fine for everyday printing but are rarely ever colour corrected properly for photo.

My recomendation to all of my customers is always to keep a new cartridge handy for photos but to use the refilled ones whenever they are printing anything else as it will give you the best balance between print cost and print quality.

Magicolor 2400W print fades on right side of page


Have you tried cleaning the leans at the bottom of the printer? Open the cover, pull out the drum. Under it is a long, narrow piece of glass. If it gets dusty or toner accumulates on it, it will cause streaks in the printing. If this is dirty, take a clean, soft cloth and very gently wipe it off.

Print faded after replacing black cartridge Brother 240C


The print heads don't appreciate being out of ink so the Brother printer has sensors to prevent that but the tape defeated that prevention. Maybe more cleanings or maybe a cartridge with printhead cleaning solution will help. Otherwise, I fear a new printer.

HP Officejet 6210 printing blank pages


Hi steve well I suggest that you remove the cartridges and clean the little gold contacts on the carriage and the cartridge. If this doesn't work then install brand new original cartridges as the cartridegs that you have refilled the data ribbon may have been damaged when you refilled them..

Try the above and I hope it works for you
Thanks J
