Brother MFC-9840CDW not printing colours properly

Hi My Brother MFC-9840CDW is printing pages with too much orange on the left side of the page. This effect sometimes affects only the left margin other times it spreads across most of the page. On a large print run each individual page has varying degrees of this effect. I recently change the toner cartridges for Inkrite branded ones and ie prior to the problem arising and now the printer tells me that the yellow cartridge is empty well short of the promised 5000 pages.

Always use Brother toners. This is a common issue with cheap copies and remanufactured cartridges.

SOURCE: Changed yellow ink to new cartridge. Printer won't recognize.

I contacted the Brother site, the support function there. Pursuant to what I found there, I unplugged the printer for ten seconds and replugged. The message display then told me that cyan was empty, and that magenta was near empty.

I installed a new cartridge in place of the empty cyan, and that fixed it.

Sometimes just a static shock can do that, you need to replace the control panel pcb to fix it.

Faded print on right side of page. When I copy/print in black, why is the black print faded on the right side of the paper?


Your toner cartridge may be the culprit.
Take the cartridge out and shake sideways and up/down. Reinstall it and try again.
If it's still printing faded side, replace the cartridge.

MFC-9840CDW Laser Printer -


If you have had it for 3 years, yes maybe fuser, and the fuser is actually the cheapest part to replace, but I would pull all parts out first and clean everything. Then toner carts, make sure to cover and shake gently so toner is spread evenly. If you are refilling your own, they can only be refilled once.

The drum roller is damaged. You must be careful and spin the cylinder. do not touch the roller. You probably have a line in the roller that causes this issue. Each time i have seen this problem, this was the cause.
