Try this
unplug printer cables, replug in
take cartridges out, put back in making sure sure nothing is obstructing the ink dispensary on the cartridges and that they're clean
look in the printer where the cartridges go, making sure nothing is blocking the ink
check the rollers to make sure no paper is caught inside the printer
turn on printer and try this
hope this works and good luck

I replaced the cartridge for my HP C4250 printer/scanner but the alignment page did not print properly, so I did not get a proper scan page. Now it will not print at all. What next?


Hi,
A cleaning will fix the problem. To clean your HP C4250 > open a document (from the computer) and select print from the menu,
- In the print screen window select 'properties' Or 'Preferences'

- In the next window click 'maintenance'

- In the next window there will be many options to clean, align, nozzle check etc etc...



hope this helps, thanks!

New black cartridge installed in MP780 Prints


This simply means that black ink is installed but not CHARGED properly. What you see in a color printing has actually no black color in it but a combination of the hues of blue and yellow and magenta; though it appears black or dark.

Now, use your printer's maintenance utility to do Head Cleaning. To do this, click Start => Settings => open your Printer and Faxes, then right click on your printer's name. Then click on Printing Preferences. Now in the window that opens, click the Maintenance tab and do Head Cleaning. (In some printers, maintenance is called Toolbox)

MFC-490CW two ink colours just not printing, it still prints biut just with black and blue, tried cleaning them the normal way but they still wont print. Cant get into maintenence mode to try better...


Powerful cleaning is: Press menu, then start black copy, then four times arrow-up quickly after another.Machine will be in maintenance mode (all lights will flash).
press 7-6-4 and OK (or start-black-copy).
When finished press 7-6-3 then start black copy,
printer will do a power purge.
Leave maintenance mode by pressing 9-9.
If this not help better think about new printer, because cost of repairing this one is profitable.

You cannot seem to print properly. You can try and do the head cleaning.

For windows
just click on start / settings / printers & faxes
Check on the example below:
Right click on the printer icon then left click on printing preferences

Go to maintenance and click on head cleaning

After the head cleaning press on print nozzle check pattern. Check the patterns and see if there is gaps or breaks on it like this example:

Note: If there is gaps or breaks it explains why you cannot print properly because inks are not distributed correclty. If there is no gaps or breaks it means the printout will be fine.


For Mac users

Then click on confirmation then press Next. It will print on the nozzle check pattern.

Changed all 3 colors and black---Red not printing


Print is brown: mingles yellow with bk and cyan and red.

Did you use generic ink? You have to use a set of original brother ink carts: dinsert the original carts. press menu then start b/w copy then fourtimes arrow-up. when machine is in maintenance mode press 7 then 6 then 4 then start b/w copy. machine will initiate the carts and do some power cleaning. whnen finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start b/w copy. machine does a power purge. leave maintenance by pressing 9 then 9. Do run a test print. If you cant see any mag. do the power purge two days later. If your not lucky then (you cant see ANY mag squares on test print) the head is defective and needs replacemnt.

Will not print black


The ph will be cleaned by pressing ink thru the system (tubes and ph). Do use only dye-ink for this procedure. The best way is to use original brother ink.
place a new cart into position and make sure that they are secured.

press menu then start bk copy then fortimes arrow up. machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh ink and do some cleaning. afterwards press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy. machine will do a power purge. when finished press 9 then 9 to leave the maintenance mode. do run a test quality print by pressing ink etc.. If you cant see any bk the ph is defenetly clogged and cant be fixed anymore. It needs replacing.

Color printing


if you have used generic ink the ph might be destroyed.

Nevertheless give it a try (use nearly FULL carts):

press menu then start bk copy then 4 times arrow up. machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh tubes and ph with new ink and do some cleaning cycles. when finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy. machine will do a power cleaning. leave maintenance by pressing 9 then 9. Do run a quality test print by pressing ink etc. If you cant see any color blocks the ph has to be replaced by a new one.

Printer will not print- blank returns


make sure carts are placed well and secured.

press menu then start bk copy then four times arrow-up (tel. index). machine switches to maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh ink in tubes and ph and do some cleaning. after that press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy. machine will do a power purge. after that leave mode by pressing 9 then 9. Run a quality test print by pressing ink etc.
If you still cant see any colors the ph has dryed out. If you see some blocks try a manual cleaning (pressing ink shift to cleaning etc.). If the next test print out still is bad the ph is clogged due to generic ink and cant be cleaned anymore. In both way ph needs replacement.

Printer problem


Did you check the right placing of the ink cart? Is the support locked above the cart top?

After checking press menue then start mono (blue copy button). then fourtimes arrow-up button. machine will display maintenance and blicking. press 7 then 6 then 4. machine will be initialize the carts. press start mono (blue copy). machine will initialize the carts and will run some cleaning. After maintenance is shown again leave this mode by pressing 9 then 9. Do a test print.

If you cant see any bk insert another brand new cart and do the procedure again.

If trhere is still no bk the print head is clogged (because of generic ink??) and cant be cleaned any more! The ph has to be replaced by service personal!
