Brother MFC-440CN USB Printer double prints letters


Did you use Brother Genuine Cartirdges????
ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc. These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine.

When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, mis-align the letters & put stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. Don’t waste too much ink in cleaning it.

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Konica Minolta PagePro 1350W low print speed


Jacques,

Print speeds will vary based on a lot of factors. First thing to note is that your printer should have a first print time of about 20 seconds. This means the first page should take about 20 seconds before it starts printing and than will print at rated engine speed.

Secondly, depending on the type of paper and thickness your speed may slow down. Most printers will slow down for a thicker paper. In general the thicker the paper the more time it needs for the toner to fuse or melt to the paper.

The size of the paper will also greatly affect the speed too. Manufacturers spec their machines to letter size in the portrait orientation (the leading edge is the 11 inch or long side). In general for legal you will have a 15 to 20% reduction in speed and for 11 x 17 you can have as much as a 40% or more reduction in speed.

Print resolution may affect the speed. Usually most printers will print faster in a draft mode. This may also reduce the amount of toner used.

How do you connect to your printer? Different cables all have different speeds. For that matter is there an upgrade to the RAM? This could also change the speed of the print job. However these should not affect the final speed too much.

So to get the "rated" speed of your printer you will need to use standard letter paper with the long edge leading. Remember don't use thick paper and use a draft mode or lower resolution if possible to get the best speed.

I hope this helps.

Tray output


You should configure TRAY 1 as Legal only.
and Tray 2 as plain letter.

Specially when you specify from what tray/paper type to print.

This can be easily configured from the Printer Properties within the Printers and Faxes section of the Control Panel.

Good luck!

Print Quality of ML 2010


I really don't think this will meet your requirements. I bought this as a backup when my main printer had a problem, and this one worked well for a short time, but now prints very lightly even with a new cartridge, and all proper settings.
There are better choices at this price point.
