Printer appears to be printing normally but only blank sheets coming out!

I have just changed the cyan ink on my printer, pressed print and all sounded normal except when I went to get the printout all the sheets were blank. How can I sort this out please!

    My brother MFC 665CW printer shows a 4F error and unable to clean. How do I get to the head to clean it?


    Do the following to clean the print head:


    1. Press INK key on the control panel.


    2. Press the DOWN arrow key until CLEANING appears on the LCD.


    3. Press OK.


    4. Press the DOWN arrow key to select BLACK, COLOR or ALL depending on what you want to clean.


    5. Press OK.


    The machine will clean the print head. When cleaning is finished, the machine will go back to Ready automatically. If you are experiencing a print quality issue, we recommend you repeat the print head cleaning for each color showing an issue at least five (4) times.


    If you are experiencing a print quality issue and want to see if the cleanings are improving the print quality, print a Print Quality Check Sheet (PQCS) after the first cleaning and then print another PQCS after repeating the print head cleaning steps at least three (3) more times (4 total cleanings). You can then compare the two Print Quality Check Sheets.


    Do the following to print a Print Quality Check Sheet:


    1. Press INK key on the control panel. TEST PRINT will appear on the LCD.


    2. Press OK. PRINT QUALITY will appear on the LCD.


    3. Press OK.


    4. Press COLOR START.


    NOTE: The machine will generate the Print Quality Check Sheet (PQCS). On the PQCS each of the four colors is represented by a slanted square pattern made up of 96 individual blocks. The colors should appear (from left to right): Black - Yellow - Cyan - Magenta. Cyan is the light blue color and Magenta is the pinkish color.

    WHILE TEST PRINT CYAN INK NOT SHOWING WHAT SHOULD I DO SIR


    This issue will only occur if an ink cartridge(s) is or was installed inthe wrong position (slot) in the machine. When a cartridge is installed, the ink tube system is filled with the ink from the cartridges, to prepare the machine for printing. If the cartridge is inthe wrong position the tube will fill with the wrong color.


    NOTE: If you just installed or replaced the ink cartridges and your printed documents are missing colors please refer to the solution - I just installed or replaced my ink cartridge and my printed documents aremissing colors. What can I do? Blank


    To resolve this issue you will need to clean the print head.


    NOTE: It may require 10 to 15 cleanings to clean the ink tubes and print head. During the cleaning process, the ink in the cartridge(s) will be consumed. Additional ink cartridges may be required to completethe cleaning process.


    1. First verify the position of the ink cartridges:


    a. Open the ink cartridge cover and check to make sure the ink cartridges are in the correct order.


    b. Starting from the left side, the correct order is Black, Yellow, Cyan(blue), and Magenta (red).


    - If the ink cartridges are installed in the correct order, close the ink cartridge cover and continue to STEP 2.


    - If the ink cartridges are not in the correct order, remove the ink cartridges that are installed in the wrong position by pressing down on the release lever(s), located above the ink cartridge and remove the cartridge(s) from the machine.


    Next, reinstall the ink cartridge(s) in the correct position in the machine by gently pushing the cartridge in until it clicks.


    When all the cartridges are installed, close the ink cartridge cover.


    2. After closing the ink cartridge cover, the LCD will prompt - Did youchange XXXX (XXXX = the color) This message will be displayed for ink cartridge that was removed. Press the - (Minus Key for No). This willkeep accurate data of how much ink is left in the cartridge.

    2. Press OK to select Test Print.


    3. Press OK to select Print Quality.


    4. Press the COLOR START key.

    b If the colors on the Check Sheet are not in the correct order, are missing dashes or blank or a color other than Black, Yellow, Cyan or Magenta printed press - (Minus Key for No) on the key panel and continueto STEP 6.


    6. The machine will need to perform cleanings to flush out the incorrectcolor or dried ink from the ink tubes and print head.


    a. The LCD will ask you BLACK OK. If black is fully printed and is the correct color, press + (Plus Key for Yes). If it#s blank, missing dashes or is the incorrect color, press - (Minus Key for No).


    b. The LCD will ask you COLOR OK. If any of the 3 colors (yellow, cyan (blue), and magenta (red) are fully printed and are the correct color, press + (Plus Key for Yes). If it#s blank, missing dashes or is the incorrect color, press - (Minus Key for No).


    c. The LCD will say START CLEANING + for YES and - for NO. Press + for YES to start cleaning. The machine will go through a cleaning cycle that will take approximately one to two minutes.


    d. After the cleaning is completed, the LCD will say PRESS START. Pressthe BLACK START key. This will print out the print quality check sheet again for you to check and see if your print quality issue has been resolved or not


    NOTE: If you wait 1 minute after the cleaning cycle is completed, the display will return to date and time. You will need to go back to STEP 3 to print the Print Quality Check Sheet again.


    e. If the ink color order is correct and all of the dashes are present, press + on the key pad to select YES and continue to STEP 7.


    If the colors on the Check Sheet are not in the correct order, are missing dashes or blank or a color other than Black, Yellow, Cyan or Magenta printed press - key to select NO. Repeat the cleaning process byfollowing STEPS 6a through 6d. You may have to perform this procedure up to 15 times in order to clean the ink tubes and print head

    7. Test by printing the document that had the reported problem (wrong color printing).

    PRINTING BLANK SHEETS


    You need to put the test page that was printed into the scanner part of the printer and then press the scan/blue button. This is so the printer can calibrate the new ink. When you have done that the next time you turn on the printer a blank page will not be printed. When you next change ink you will have to repeat the above procedure.

    Photo printing


    It is definite one cartridge is not running. You do one thing - 1. Write documents in MS-Word - select all - change the color to Red. Take print out. Check Printing is perfect or not.
    2. Write documents in MS-Word - select all - change the color to Cyan. Take print out. Check Printing is perfect or not.
    3. Write documents in MS-Word - select all - change the color to Yellow. Take print out. Check Printing is perfect or not.
    I am sure when you changed the color to Cyan - it did not print Cyan or blank page you got.
    So you must replace the Cyan cartridge or may be ink is not coming out through the passage. And first you have to check whether you have removed the plastic tape from the head of t he cartridge.
