I have a problem with print quality of my Brother printer mFC-6490CW, I have run the ink management utility, the black, yellow and magenta printed to about 95% just one dotted line missing on the black,...


Well, this is a common problem with people who purchase Brother printers, but do not always use Brother Ink Cartridges. Brother has a cleaning agent in the print cartridge and the compatibles do not.

"If you have a lack of one (or more) color do the following:

Make sure all carts are full, placed well and are secured. Insert a new ORIGINAL BROTHER CART for the one that shows no color.

Press menu then start bk-copy then four times arrow up quick after another. machine will switch into maintenance mode and all lights will flash. Press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk-copy. machine will initialize the carts and refresh ink within tubes and print head. After that it does some power cleaning. When finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk-copy. machine will run a power purge. when finished press 9 then 9 to leave the maintenance mode. do run a quality test print.

This should clean the lines out and clear up your issue.

Brother MFC-440CN won't print color


Did you use generic carts?

Do use only original brother ink carts!
Only these have special cleaning fluids mingled with the ink.

There are several advantages, too:


You can run a special cleaning mode (DO insert original carts at first!!!)

Press menue then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow-up.
machine should switch to maintenance mode (buttons will flash).
press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh ink within the tubes and the print head and run a special cleaning routine. when finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy to run a power cleaning. leave the maintenance mode by pressing 9 then 9.

The machine should print without proböems. If there is a poor quality left, the printhead is affected by bad ink and cant be fixed anymore.

Colors


Did you run a quality test print by pressing ink etc...?

It might be that you have no magenta anymore.

If you can see all the 4 colored blocks on the test sheet, firstly try to copy(!) a picture with pink colors and secondly run a pc print. If there is still no pink and you have it blue or green on the COPY one the scanner needs readjustment (from service personell). If you have trouble with the pc printing, too there might be 
a defective ink cart holder which leaks and mingles the ink (you need a new ink cart holder then)

Brother mfc 420 cn does not print red color


do you use generic ink? If yes, the generic ink might have clogged the ph (valve stucks inside because of lack of additives!).

Anyway, do this:
(use near full level ink carts!)
make sure carts are placed well and are secured.
Press menue 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 in tubes and ph and do some cleaning cycles. when finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy. ,achine runs a power purge. when fisihed press 9 then 9 to leave the mode. press ink etc. to run a quality test print.
If you still cant see any magenta, the ph is defective and 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.
