I guess you have used generic ink carts.
You should buy an original brother ink cart.
When done so make sure all other carts are at full level:
Press menu then start b/k copy then fourtimes arrow up (tel.index). Machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start b/k copy. Machine will refresh ink within tubes and print head and do some power cleaning. when finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy to run an extra power purge.
Leave maintenance by pressing 9 then 9.
Do run a quality test print.
If you re lucky the it will work again.
THERE IS NO WAY TO CLEAN THE PH OUTSIDE EXCEPT BY Power Purge (7-6-3) within maintenance mode.
If you like to save money refill ORIGINAL Carts by drilling a 2mm hole into the top (O of brother brandname) . You can leave the hole open to refill the cart next time directly without taking it out of the printer.
Mix some 3ml 85%-glycerin alc (drugstore) with 3ml of distilled water and 5 ml of DYE(!) ink and refill the c/y/m cart.
For bk mix 1 ml glycerin alc with 4ml dest. water and 15 ml bk DYE ink (shake well before refill).
This is -nearly- the exact mixture of original brother ink.
