Sounds like a setting maybe wrong or you need to perform a deep cleaning. This happens if you get a bad refill cartridge, the recycled cartridges do this often. Replace the cartridge and perform a deep Cleaning and alignment. This should resolve the problem.

Poor quality black in printing


If you touched the electrical contacts on the cartridge the high voltage used could be taking a shorter path to ground. Try cleaning the contacts on the cartridge and inside the printer with a lint free cloth and some 99% isopropyl alcohol then wipe dry.

Epson xp-405 wont print black very good


No, It could be that the copper/metallic plate that interfaces with the cartridge and/or the carriage could be dirty. Remember that the ink is heated to produce the steam which is necessary to push the ink out of the cartridge. That spray doesn't just go down. It atomizes the ink so it sprays everywhere. You may need to clean those contacts with 91-99% Isopropyl Alcohol and use a coffee filter. The white filters are cheap, lint-free, and durable. Please turn off the printer and unplug it before you use any liquids on the contacts!!!

Hi. I have replaced my ink cartidge twice but the print quality remains faded with some white lines through the text. Does this sound like more than just a poor quality ink cartridge problem?


Print heads bad or dirty, as well the cleaning sponge is no doubt in need of attention. They can be replaced but the economics are spendy. Good Luck

Try cleaning the black printer heads several times in a row, at least 5 times then print a black document with best quality setting.
Press the ink button, then down to select select cleaning and then press menu/set and menu/set again to select black.

Brother MFC 4420C prints plain sheets of paper.


To start ensure that is not a software problem.
Go to Control Panel >> Installed Printers. Remove the printer. Install the printer again using the software disk or downloading the driver software from Brother website.
If that does not fix the problem, and the printer prints blank sheets, then it is usually a clogged printhead.
The printheads can be cleaned removing the ink carriage and soaking it in isopropyl alcohol overnight. If that does not work, then the printhead must be replaced.

My printer will not print anything on paper. Brother MFC 4420C, Just brings the paper out blank. It has new cartiages.


if you filled the ink with some of the kits, the ink was not totally compatible with brother printer, and most likely dried inside. if that is not the case, do the cleaning from the brother menu screen for all ink cartridges. if you under warranty call brother. it might take a while to fix, since they may send a local tech to replace the head since that is mostlikely issue. if out of warranty, you best likey choice, curb it and get new one with extended warranty.

the messages you get for cartridges other than the original are not trustful. You will get the right reading for original(from Brother) cartridges. Some ink is poor for printing photo quality.

not any refillable ink is right for printing photos, sometimes too dark, sometimes you don't get the right mix of colors.
