Question about Brother HL-5240 Laser Printer
Have a HP670 printer, about 4 years old. I have replaced one black cartridge with a Genuine HP replacement and even though there is still about 1/3 full of ink the print head appears to have blockages and is giving a poor quality print. I am thinking of upgrading to a new Canon S300 but wanted to stay with the HP a little longer until I work out just what printer we should buy.
I just bought a Calidad refill for the colour cartridge (first time replacement) but the colours are intermittent, as printed on the HP test printout. I have tried cleaning the heads, contacts and used the HP desktop control for print head cleaning many times but with no improvement. Is there some way to clean or soften the print head blockages, such as a sponge with water/method to keep the printer going or is it time to give up and chuck it? If I'm going to chuck it I might as well try anything, it may help other readers if it works!
