    My 5 month old Brother MC240c has clogged printheads. The company claims it is bc. I used compatible cartridges, rather than theirs. Any clues as to how to clean them, short of buying a new printer??

If it's a inkjet printer, try running a cleaning cycle to clean the printheads/ inkjets

Printing wrong color

Hi there,

You must do a deep printer head cleaning on your unit, it could be clogged and dirty and that because it will not produce or print out a proper color.

Let me know here again.

CX5500 wont print!!

Your printer is not ready yet because you didn't see yet 4 colors Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black.
If this 4 colors are showed then your printer is online but if not it all shaded grey.
If still have a problem exist, insert the cartridge properly or calibrate it. Such problem like this are due to cartridge not inserted properly. I have one this kind of printer in my house CX5500, it's cool.
Power On & Power Off is the best result on this.
Good luck!

Printer will not print!

Try emptying the toner waste container. It's grey & L shaped, and can be found to the left of the blue toner cartrige. Pull it out and empty it into a plastic bag by lightly shaking it and tapping it on it's sides. But be careful or you'll make a mess. Hope this helps.

Half the page is dark grey

Low toner.
Consider how often you print.
If you print more than twice a day, toner will tend to run low after half a year, so I would buy a replacement cartridge and see if this solves your issue.
They aren't terribly expensive, so it is worth a shot.
