    I've a Mac 0S X 10.5.8 - can you pls tell me how to remove/uninstall software?

    BTW, this all worked swimmingly before a recent move. It's possible that I'm not cleaning the heads properly.

There is a false reading on new ink cartridges as thos blog states:

Here is the link that tells what you can do and how to do it:

It looks like this is a crazy sensor problem that brother has never fixed- I've seen a lot of reports about it. Here's a forum related to this printer, and the Q & A cover a lot of issues:

Maybe the software is not being detected fully and could have possible errors. so remove uninstall the software, then reinstall and connect back the printer. Now take a test print.
If the fault does not change then it is possible that the head can be weak.
Might need to take one more look to clean the heads to see if there is any change.
if not the head can be faulty.

I haven't used my printer in a while so when I try to print something the pages come out blank, but my ink cartridges are full. What could the problem be?


Have you tried putting it through the cleaning cycle found in the list of options on the screen? Also, does the page come out blank for copies as well as printing?

Hi my printer won't print black, test colour work but no black, therefore all text to print is blank. I have replaced the ink with a new one and cleaned it 5 times, still no black ink. Thanks


Hi

Clean it manually by removing the black ink cartridge and rub the print head into a paper with rubbing alcohol until ink flows more. Then run the print nozzle to clean the print head thoroughly. After, try to print again.

If not, dip the print head only into hot water for 5 minutes and then run the print nozzle.

Let me know if you need more help

Printer prints blank pages


The print head is a part of the printer itself and unlike other printers, you cannot remove it or soak it without ruining your printer. So just try the print head cleaning option and perhaps replace cartridges, especially if you are using a third party or refilled cartridge which can clog even if it is full.

Brother mfc 5840 won't print clearly


you need to check the maintainence kit and see if it's full. Also if it isn't, use some iso-proponal alcohol and some q-tips to clean the print section of the cartridge and the cartridge tray.

Black ink will not print (new out of box).


If cleaning doesn't work you should talk to your retailer or Brothers support. Don't think they can expect you to use up all ink cleaning cartridges when the machine is straight out of the box..

Ink well cleaners


There is a design reason why the print heads are changed when you change an ink cartridge is changed. The print head isn't made to be reused and the quality of your print will suffer at some point if you reuse the same print head 6 or 7 times. I would get new cartridges and be happy with the print quality that a new cartridges will bring.
