SOURCE: error problems wi Dell 626 all in one printer

Try these steps if this did not resolve try to clear the memory of the printer
and try to print ..

# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

SOURCE: WHILE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHY MY PRINT QUALITY IS

If it has been happening since you put those cartridges in, I would suspest the cartridge. most of them have the actual Printhead built on the cart.(it's what actually spits out the ink from the cart.) if they become clogged with dried ink, they will give poor performance. you may have gotten a cartridge that got to hot in shipping or something, and was bad in the package.
Have you tried another cartridge, are these refills, if so I say thats your problem the cartridge

SOURCE: Ink Leaks

it sounds as though you haven't use this in a while and the ink has dried in the head/jets. try cleaning the nozles and get new ink cartridges.

Why does the 2550n printer not printing fully in the left column


Is the print quality poor on left side for all colors? You may have one bad cartridge. Create a paint document with Yellow, Magenta and Cyan squares on the left side and see if one color prints better than the others. You can also gently shake the cartridges to redistribute toner.

Poor print quality


Try printing a test page, which shows a sample of the colors in the ink cartridge individually, usually yellow, cyan and red. It may be that the blue ink is getting low. You did not say whether you were printing text (black) or photos (color).

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.

1. Confirm that the colors are incorrect by printing a Print Quality Check Sheet

b. Press the UP OR DOWN ARROW key to select Test Print.

c. Press OK.

d. Use the UP OR DOWN ARROW key to select Print Quality.

a. Press STOP/EXIT to return to the "Date and Time" display.

3. Evaluate the Print Quality Check Sheet.

On the Print Quality Check Sheet each of the four colors is represented by a slanted square pattern made up of 96 individual blocks. The colors should appear in the following order from left to right: Black - Yellow - Cyan - Magenta.

NOTE: Cyan is the light blue color and magenta is the pinkish color.

a. If the colors on the Print Quality Check Sheet do not match the sequence listed above then the ink cartridges are most likely installed in the wrong order. Continue to STEP 4 to resolve this.

6. Remove the cartridges and reinstall them in the correct slots. On Brother Genuine Cartridges the color of the label will match the color of the cartridge cover.

7. Run a "Setup Purge". A Setup Purge is necessary to replace the ink in the ink supply tubes with the correct color. One or more of the ink cartridges may run empty during this process. If they do, replace the empty cartridge with a Brother Genuine Ink Cartridge before continuing the process.
