Question about Brother MFC 4420C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Print color not functioning correctly

I have a MFC4420C that my son gave me when he got out of the navy in late 2003. It has been working great and has set idle for several months. I put new cartridges in it and ran it through the cleaning cycle 7 or 8 times and all colors except yellow are great. the yellow color on the little bars that print are great color and very distinct but not all are printing like the other colors. As a result when I try to print a color picture everything looks good except the yellow and it doesn't fill in all the color.
Any ideas?

Is there a printer calibration program on that printer?

You should run it an make sure the color distribution settings are correct.

WIl not print correctly


If it is faded, it could be the transfer roller. I've had great success with simply periodically cleaning it, then getting a good printout. See my solution for this already posted: Check out this solution to the HP Color LaserJet CM1312nfi Laser Color...

Otherwise, the other issue I had late last year was that it needed a new intermediate transfer belt (part #RM1-4436-000CN). You can find a good deal on one, and the instructions for replacement are on page 156 in the service manual: http://www.feedroller.com/Store/Service%20Manual/HP-CLJ-CM1312-MFP-Manual.pdf
It's not the hardest replacement ever, but needs 2-3 hours depending on skill, and a little patience.

Good luck!

My printer is running low on black ink and i'd like to use blue


Sorry but you cannot select the default color. What you can do is to set the color or your text in navy blue.
You can also select color cartridges only from: Printer Properties -> Mainteinance -> Ink Cartridge Settings.
And then from Main tab select Grayscale Printing.
Good Luck.

My HP 3845 lately prints grey instead of black, in 'Normal' as well as in 'Best' modes. Any idea why this could be?


Go to Control panel
select printers
right click on your printer
select PRINTING PREFERENCES
Then on the next new window that opens up (the tab should default to PAPER/QUALITY) click on the LAST tab COLOR
Here you can see if maybe somehow your PRINT IN GRAYSCALE box is checked-uncheck it to correct your problem-click on OK at bottom to save the setting

Reply back if this does not correct it.

Hope this helps.

On my Canon i950, when the printer starts to print the paper is sucked in by a rotating motor, but it seems like that motor is spinning too fast that it causes the paper to go sideways, crinkle, and jam....


Ok you can only try it could work

Start with the printer OFF

1. Hold down RESUME and then hold down POWER
2. Release RESUME
3. Press RESUME twice, then release POWER
4. Let green light blink until printer is done futzing

Select function with RESUME press POWER to execute:
presses - light color - function

Number of presses - light color - function
0 presses - green - Test print (or exit service mode on i960)
1 press - orange - EEPROM info print (plus grid nozzle diagnostic on i950)
2 presses - green - EEPROM initialize
3 presses - orange - Reset waste ink counter


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Picture prints too pink


What you see on the screen is quite often not what prints. Sometimes the screen will not show a slight color anomoly. If your pictures were taken with a digital camera, this is quite common. Try the photo enhancement software that came with your camera, or alternately, your printer. They all supply the software because of color corrections that are at times necessary. Sometimes always. Hope that helps. Try the "Auto Correct" function that most photo correction software has. That should help!

My canon bjc-80 will not print


BJC-80, USB to PARALLEL cable & XP problem solved! I read all the comments, instructions, etc. and was ready to give up, but posed the problem to my son (who has a computer repair business, duh), and I'm not sure I have this correct he simply Dis-abled the bi-directional communications in the set up, gave the cable and printer a designated USB port, got the driver for the BJC-80 ... not BJC-85 ... and it works fine. I do not have the scanner cartridge but I have 2 BJC-80s and love them but gave up when got the new computer. Well, I just ran off 2 pages after cleaning the cartridges and cartridge holder with alcohol on TP, because they had dried up hard, and it works great in both B&W & color, at least on draft mode so far. (My son will not post anything because he does not want a bunch of calls coming in, and I don't know any more, but I just could not bring myself to give up these great little printers for on the go Realtors, etc. without another good old college try). Glad to have my printers back! Good luck.

Royal blue / navy blue on the screen prints out looking purple


ahem...well..this has a lot to do with the rgb to cmyk issues on the transforms. You may need to see if the Photosmart is compatible with the Adobe Photoshop C2 transforms..
