    Thanks and I found the solution. It was NOT as you expected...for anyone else who has this problem - here was the solution in my case. I cleaned, aligned, and did all the other maintenance things possible I could find that the machine offered. And Voila! It works fine now. (The ink cartridges all were new and all snapped properly in place)

Hello,
Either 01 of the ink from the cartridge is emptied or the cartridge has exhausted.

BROWN is made by mixing two of the three "primary" colours.
So, if the printer is out of RED ink, you'll get the "other" primary colour.

Print a "test" page, and verify that part of that page is RED.

Run a printer "cleaning" cycle, and consider replacing the RED cartridge.

It seems to be a problem with the colour ink cartridge ,did you remove the protective tape that came with it?
you should return the colour cartridge and get it replaced or buy another one.
If that doesn't solve it then return the printer since it's under warranty.

Prints all yellow, with some blue and black, no brown


the problem is very simple the magenta ink the cartridge is over or the head is been blocked from where the magenta ink comes out,
because red colour requires ---yellow plus magenta(pink)----to make it red.and ----dark yellow plus magenta(pink) -------- for brown colour.

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.

Red colour prints brown


Just replace the non genuine inks with proper Canon ones and then do about 4 full cleans, that should fix it. If not you will have to replace the printhead, which is usually caused by using non genuine ink. Good luck
