Brother DCP-130C refuses to print the magenta ink

My DCP-130C will not print the magenta ink. After countless head cleans no magenta dots are printed on the test page. Have always used genuine ink and the cost of wasting it on head clens trying to get it working is too high. The machine has not done much printing.

    Thanks for the reply even though it isnt good news. I have also since found out that my printer model has a bad history with print heads and clogging so will be staying away from brother printers i think.

If you don't print at least once a month, you will clog the machine. You unfortunately have to get it fixed by a professional or get a new printer. Sorry!

When printing colour pictures they appear with greenish hue and there is no red at all...


For some reason it's not printing with the magenta ink. If you were out of that color it would tell you, so either all the magenta nozzles are clogged, or the printhead has gone bad.
At the top of the control panel is a button labeled Ink Management (or just Ink). Press that and choose Cleaning. Some machines will allow you to clean only certain colors - you want Magenta. When it's done, print a test page - also in the Ink Management menu. If it's improved, do it again until all the dots print for each color. Inkjet machines clean their nozzles by blasting them out with ink. If you're low on ink you should have spare cartridges ready to swap.
If no magenta prints at all, but the other colors are fine, your printhead has failed. If the machine is less than a year old it's a warranty repair, see Brother's website for the closest service center. If it's just past warranty, call Brother's customer service line and beg for a Work Order to be sent to a service center to cover your machine. Note that they will insist that your ink cartridges be genuine Brother brand before doing free repairs for ink problems.
If it's out of warranty, a repair would probably cost more than a new DCP 130C. Good luck.

Print only in a dot dot or not clear


Is it clean? Most ink jet printers have a simple user procedure for cleaning the print heads. You may have to clean them periodically or after the printer has been idle for a few days or weeks. If you see funny colors or print-outs are missing colors, a cartridge may be empty or a head dirty. You may have to clean a head many times to get it working again.

Brother DCP-120C Printer - Does not print black, Black and magenta cartridges renewed with new Brother cartridges. Black ink level reset OK but not magenta. Have tried automatic head cleaning but still no...


have you recently had a paper jam. somtimes pieces of paper can become trapped under the print head which restricts the printing. if there is and its been there for a while the print head may need to be wiped/cleaned( a bit tricky) then a couple more print head cleans.

Brother DCP 130C not printing magenta and yellow


after replacing the ink cartridges it took several cleans to come good. I have no idea how to "manually" clean the heads. So I told the printer to do it many (about 7) times. It eventually worked
