Question about Brother DCP 165C Compact Color Inkjet Multifunction Printer
I should ask if you are now using a new cartridge? or just using a refilled cartridge?
If you are using a refilled cartridge then the nozzle and the print head is already clogged. That is very common to all printers. Test or cleaning from printer utilities may not be enough to do this because it is physically clogged.
To check...remove the cartridge and place the printhead on a piece of tissue. To see whether the ink is passing thru the printhead. If markings where not proportion then its really clogged
Remove the cartridge from the printer. Dipped the nozzle or printhead section of the cartridge to a mixture of ammonia and water. Leave it soak for at least two hours. Warm water is necessary. You can also place the printhead directly from a running water and rinse it with distilled water to remove residue from the tap water.
After the procedure. place the printhead on the tissue again and see the markings left by the ink.
Please post back after this procedure so I could know whether to give you more advance solution.
Please give this solution a ratings if this first instruction was helpful.
Thank you for using Fixya.
