Question about Brother Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

MY Printer Brother : MF 235 C has problem with printing the Magenta and Yellow. bought 4 original catridges for Black , Cyan , Magenta and Yello. The Cyan and Black are printing with blurish and faded quality whereas the magenta and yellow do not print at all. I have done all the quality checks and printer head cleaning from the instructions on the display pannel. Looks like the printer heads are clogged and need cleaning. Is there any self service I can do to clean the printer heads?

I have the same problem. Here's the advice I found somewhere on the internet:

If a jet (nozzle) in your cartridge has gone bad you will see horizontal bands and/or white streaks in your print. Print characteristics may appear incomplete and/or the filled in areas on may not show up.
1) Run some warm water over the print head. This can wash away any ink which might have dried in the cartridge print head. Dry the cartridge with a lint-free cloth before placing back into the printer.

2) Clean the contacts on the cartridge (the copper colored circuitry) and the contacts where the cartridge clips into the printer with water or alcohol. After cleaning, insert and remove the cartridge from the printer a few times to be sure you have a good connection between contacts on the cartridge and the printer.

3) If your print is smeared cleaning the wiper blade may fix the problem. Do this according to your printer manual instructions.

SOURCE: iP4300 only recognizes magenta OR cyan

1. Get compressed air
2. Run Printhead under HOT water, do not worry about contacts getting slightly wet.

3. Blow compressed air with straw attachment into screens where the cartridge nozzle sits on printhead. then let it sit and dry.

4. reinstall print test page

5. if this fails open paint/photoshop and print a page of the color that is not printing correctly. rinse and repeat until colors flow freely.

I have several ip4300s and I have yet to give up the ghost on a printer with a clog ujsing this method.

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Do use original brother ink to fix the problem: Do the cleaning twice (All colors and bk). You should see some blocks of the missing colors. If not printhead is damaged and cant be repaired (Dryed out or damaged valve or clogged with particles). If machine displays unable to clean, search googl for ERROR 46 (Reset and change of waist inktank)

No Magenta and No yellow


If you have really already run the cleaning cycle more than 20 times you should have get an error 46 which means that the printer cant clean anymore! So if not, use original brother inkcarts and do the the cleaning twice. If there is no block on the testsheet, the printhead is crashed. You cant fix it anymore.
