The fluid component of the ink will evaporate if the printer is in a hot dry environment. Loss of ink over time should be anticipated.

Brother hl-3045 jam inside


Had the same problem, called help center and fixed it!!!
Problem occurred when i tried to print colour labels from Word.
Black cartridge printing worked fine.
When using manual feed (pull down black panel in front which says 'brother'- you'll get the message for this if printing labels
you must open the back door of the printer.
got 'paper jam inside' error message.

Here's what I did and somewhere along the way, something worked.

Turn and unplug machine
take out all drum cartridges (all 4)
Take out the black belt (everything you can remove has a green arrow or tab- easy)
check to see if there's any paper in there- there was no paper in my case.
separate the drum from the cartridge for each colour and check the colour roller and the fuser film roller- don't touch them- no paper stuck that i could see
put them back together carefully.
Put the belt in and then the 4 cartridges
do a test run- mine still showed error message- paper jam inside
switch black with each cartridge and do a test run for each. When i switched with yellow - didn't work, magenta- didn't work- cyan- WORKED!!!- the colours were messed up on the document but it went through and printed without the error message.
Here's the sequence of what colour cartridge went in which spot.
Yellow in black slot
magenta in yellow slot
cyan in magenta slot
black in cyan slot.
then i switched them back to the way they are supposed to be and tried to print again and it worked!
the colour is amazing on this printer- i had the trouble right from the beginning after installation.
hope this helps.

The colours on our HL-4040CN have gone all strange - when we perform colour calibration the colours go either red or green. All toners are new and the drum has been replaced recently as well. We do a lot...


Hi

We need to isolated the problem on what cause ink cartridge not print in color. When even you installed new cartridges, It is necessary to run the print nozzle to clean the print head. Also, please try to clean the print head manually by removing all the ink cartridges and rub the print head into a white paper with alcohol until ink flows and then return it back and run the print nozzle for 2 times.

Then try to print again.

If it does not help you, please let me know to give you more help.

My printer is not printing the colour yellow even though the cartidge is full and new


If you have run the nozzle cleaning utility, and you are not getting any yellow output, the cartridge is most likely defective. This also occurs if you are not using OEM ink cartridges.

I have just replaced the black toner as requested by my HL 4050CDN laser printer with a genuine brother replacement and now it's flashing on the LCD that I need to replace the 3 colours also. It's not...


just open the cartridge holders for the colours and even pull them out a little. Machine will think you replaced them.
Normally when you replace black it will ask if you did replace the colors. If you say no it will calculate the amount of toner in there still.
**** that is for next time. Now just open the cartridge holders for the collors and let the machine think you replaced them.
