Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Sorry, I am not used to this forum yet, so my problem is now listed under "solved", although it is not solved yet ;-)
I posted an answer to you on this topic -- would you take the time to look into it again?
the fixya message systems fools my email account since half a week. So, I m sorry, that I cant answer straight to your requests...
Now lets have a look at your prob:
First things first for brother ph:
Those cant be cleaned from outside! The cleaning procedure is alwasy from the inside by help of the original ink
(which contains additives of special cleaning fluids). This is due to the very special technique of electro-piezo ph instead of bubblejets (canon system) which can be cleaned sometimes from outside.
Another fact is that due to the tube (capillaries) system its quite often possible that air bubbles have grown when transported from refilled carts to ph. This air bubbles prevent the nozzels to work well or itz seems to the user that the channel is clogged.
Some advice to generic ink:
do refill original carts only. This is because of several reasons (prevent staining, malfunction and more trouble).
Buy refill DYE-ink (universal ink from jettec or inktec work excellent) and some glycerol (85%- glycerin alc.) at the drugstore. Mix 2ml glycerol with 10ml of C/Y/M ink very well and refill the C/Y/M carts with that: drill a hole of 2mm into the top of the cart (e.g. O of brother brand name).
For bk mix 1.5ml glycerol with 15ml bk dye ink and shake very, very well before refilling the cart.
So here is what you can do to get rid of the clogging:
Plz use 4 new, full ORIGINAL brother carts (quite costly, I know)..
Place them in and make sure they are secured.
Press menu then start bk then fourtimes arrow up. machine will be in maintenance mode.
press 7-6-4 then start bk copy.
machine will initialize the carts, by refreshing ink in tubes and ph, delete air bubbles and do some power cleaning.
when finished press 7-6-3 then start bk copy.
Machine will do an extra power purge.
when finished leave maintenance by pressing 9 then 9.
Do a test print after machine comes up again.
If your lucky your generic ink hasnt destroyed the ph!
Otherwise you need a new mfc due to the fact, that a ph is very costly!
BTW: Be very carefully when clicking the ph cover back into position! Wachtch the upper leftside: dont break the small platic guide which leads the ph on the rail.
to delete error A1 (scanner top open) simply make sure, that the top is in right position ;-) (If you have read out the error code from maintenance as an error: this is NO error! Its in info which have all brother printers when the scanner is opened the first time ;-)
