SOURCE: Brother HL-3040CN printer is printing a yellow

Hey, i had this problem with the cyan colour and it is easily fixed. You take out the problem cartridge and under it, youll see a green tab that you can slide left and reight. you must make sure this tab is at the "home" position. ie, all the way to the left until it clicks into place. http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/eu/eu_ot/en/faq/faq/000000/000000/000065/faq000065_049.html?reg=eu&c=eu_ot&lang=en&prod=hl3040cn_all&Cat=7 This shows a picture about half way down the page of what it should look like. this solved my problem:) cheers!

SOURCE: Brother Printer Cannot Print in Black

This could be because of several probs: 1. The ink cart is not original and wont let the ink flow, because the valve is not open. 2. There might be air bubbles within the capillaries. 3. The ink is not genuine ink and has pigments in it. Solution: see here, too: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/faq/faq_top.htm?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=dcp110c_us Insert another ink cart. Use, if possible, the genuine ink cart from brother. Do the cleaning cycle twice. This will extract the air bubbles out of the caps after the second time. If you dont have any success the printhead is clogged and cant be cleaned anymore!

SOURCE: Our Brother MFC-490CW printer prints

you have air in the air line tubes. you can try doing a couple cleaning, wait 24 hrs, and try a couple more cleanings and then do a test print.

you can try doing a ink purge, but it will **** up a lot of ink, but it might be your last resort.

press menu, and then *2864 quickly, then type 76, use the arrows to select black and then press 0.
when all done press 99 to exit.

It may work it may not, its possible you may even need to do it again, however, your inks will be depleted.

My printer is low on yellow and magenta and is printing a stripe of each color on the papers edge.


Hi.
On the drums for each colour there is a purple/blue/green slider for cleaning the corona wire. If there is a stripe of colour anywhere on the page going from top to bottom check these sliders. They need to be where the arrow on the slider meets the arrow on the drum casing.

As for low toner on the Yellow and Magent - Replace the cartridges.

Brother- MFC 90CW black ink just replaced, but not printing, even the test print didnt print propaerly, it came out very light in other colours but not in black? what to do? is it a toner problem?


Thoughout my experience of fixing computers, I have seen this happen twice. Once was because the "new" ink cartridge was empty (which should cause the LCD display to say "cannot print"). the other was because the end user did not remove the protective yellow cap before installing the ink cartridge (yes, they made it fit). If neither of these are the cause you should try cleaning the print head. You can do so by pressing "ink", then scroll down to "cleaning", then scroll to black and press "ok".

I REPLACED MY INK IN THE EPSON NX110 PRINTER


ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Cartridges. !!!!!!!!

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.


These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if any of the cartridges are empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

I changed all Print cartridges-Black, Yellow,Cyan,Blue


On this machine you have to install inks with power on and use the ink button and choose replace ink. If you just plug them in it won't register and reset the counts. You may need to run clean cycles at least twice to get proper colors.

Kyocera FS-2000D is printing a grey stripe down the side of page


In this case what i would request u to do is.......
Take out both the catridges from the Printer.........
Take 2 Paper Towels one should be wet with Luke warm water and the other one should be dry...........
Take the Colour catridge first turn it upside down and u will see a small copper plate on the catridge from where the ink comes out.......
Place the wet paper towel using ur thumb on the Copper plate and press it a lit bit for 10 Seconds......
Now remove it and see whether u see any ink on the paper towel..........
U should see some ink on it now place the dry paper towel on the ink catridge in the same way........
Now do the same procedure again..........
Do the same procedure twice on the Black Catridge.................
Now take the dry paper towel and turn the direction of the cartridge so that u can see a Copper plate on it with small boxes just clean that copper plate with the Dry Paper Towel..........
Know insert both the catridges inside the Printer...........
Good Luck

Using far too much ink


This came from brothers website:

The Yellow ink cartridge yield is up to 300 pages @ 600 x 150 dpi when printing at 5% coverage on A4 sized paper.
The Magenta ink cartridge yield is up to 300 pages @ 600 x 150 dpi when printing at 5% coverage on A4 sized paper.
The Cyan ink cartridge yield is up to 300 pages @ 600 x 150 dpi when printing at 5% coverage on A4 sized paper.
The Black ink cartridge yield is up to 350 pages @ 600 x 150 dpi when printing at 5% coverage on A4 sized paper.

so it appears that what you are experiencing is not normal and you may have a leaking printer.

There is one thing you can check though, everytime you print, make sure that you are not printing at the highest quality option selectable as this almost certainly will fire out more ink than regular printing... choose a middle quality option or even draft option if you will be printing regular text.
