Question about Brother Multi-Function Center MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Brother all in one printer

My printer is printing double, with the "double" being a smudgy mess. In other words, there is a shadow of everything printed and lots of lines, especially a big thick one to the left. The window is clean, and we have tried different toner.

Re: Brother all in one printer

Do you run a laser printer (you ve mentioned toner). If yes. plz post under your printer (e.g. HL-2040 etc.).

How do I print double sided without scanning

You specify double sided from the print menu. For example from a Word file rather than just clicking the print icon; click file, print, select the appropriate printer, then properties. From there you can detail paper, paper source, 2-sided print, etc.

How do I fix double printing

Not sure what you mean by double printing.

Is it printing a ghost of what you print further down the page. Or is it mis-aligning the characters so it appears to have a shadow on each character?

My Brother MFC-465CN is printing text with alignment off and double text.

My Brother printer MFC-465cn is doing the same thing. I have workaround / worked-around it by disabling bi-directional printing. Then print is clear. It's as if the head is shifting an irregular amount on the opposite direction, like the head is loose.

Same for copies. If I use the PC interface to make copies, I can set the copy printing to be mono-directional, then copies are clear.

Double text/shadow

Hmmm.. I would suggest first removing the ink cartridges and then reinstalling them. That should triggert the alignment page. If this does not resolve the issue then uninstall the driver and reinstall the drver and run the test page from Control Panel>Printers>options

Double printing

Despite much deep cleaning, the printer is still not printing correctly - it misses out colours, letters etc. Do we need a new head, and how do we fix it please.
