New print head installed not working well

I've just replace the print head that had clogged Yellow Nozzle, with a brand new one. Now that C, M, Y, are perfect, black is not at all, does not print not even a single black dot. Is it possible a new print head to arrive to me with already clogged black nozzle? No error messages are displayed.
Thank you in advance

First thing I would look for is something on the print head contacts. Also is it a new black ink tank? Your old tank may be clogged and thus the ink can not even travel to the print head.

Are the ink cartridges just a few copies, I have new copier and print is very faint


Hi,

You need to clean the print head and insert the cartridge and check, whether it is working at fine because a dirty printer header will not allow the right formulation of the basic cyan, magenta, and yellow to print and comes up with the yellow color and not red.
If you still face the problem after cleaning print head then you need to check for a clogged nozzle. Clean the nozzle and then try printing it will work fine now.
To clean the print head from the Utility section found in the printer driver, clean the print heads by performing a head cleaning followed by printing a nozzle check pattern. Furthermore, you can clean the print head by Using a cotton Q-Tip & Isopropyl Alcohol and gently rub the print head with alcohol.

Hope this helps.

If you still have any queries, please feel free to ask us.

its possible that the yellow nozzles are totally clogged. Its possible that you would need a new printer. See your epson service center, maybe they can replace the nozzles

Yellow does not print at all


Two possibilities : yellow nozzle badly clog or lost electricity to the yellow micro pump. Use syringe filled with hot water or cleaner. Connect the syringe to yellow nozzle using flexible pipe (pipe like at head cleaning outlet , you can cut from it). Discharge it smoothly. If water/cleaner flow, so yellow nozzle is ok. Second posibility, you must check the electricity form the board, and the connector at head.

Yellow cartridge stopped workin halfway through a document although nearly full


Hi, one or two head cleans won't clear a badly clogged nozzle. Try doing 4 or 5 head cleans, wait about 10 hours for the ink to soften and do another 3 or 4 cleans with a nozzle check after each. You should see a gradual improvement in the nozzle checks. If there is no improvement then you need a head cleaning solution such as this one:

Others are available just try googling "inkjet head cleaning".
Note that head cleaning uses between 5 and ten percent of your ink cart's, if any are low on ink have some new ones ready. Hope this helps.

Red and Yellow not Printing at all.


Did you use third party carts?

If yes, buy original brother ink carts and do the cleaning cycle again. If you are lucky the printhead isnt clogged due to the third party ink which has not the additives and glycerin needed for the printhead to run without probs.

 

In case the head is clogged there is nothing more what you can do. Sorry!  A replacement might costs more than a new mfc 440cn!
