WHILE TEST PRINT CYAN INK NOT SHOWING WHAT SHOULD I DO SIR


This issue will only occur if an ink cartridge(s) is or was installed inthe wrong position (slot) in the machine. When a cartridge is installed, the ink tube system is filled with the ink from the cartridges, to prepare the machine for printing. If the cartridge is inthe wrong position the tube will fill with the wrong color.


NOTE: If you just installed or replaced the ink cartridges and your printed documents are missing colors please refer to the solution - I just installed or replaced my ink cartridge and my printed documents aremissing colors. What can I do? Blank


To resolve this issue you will need to clean the print head.


NOTE: It may require 10 to 15 cleanings to clean the ink tubes and print head. During the cleaning process, the ink in the cartridge(s) will be consumed. Additional ink cartridges may be required to completethe cleaning process.


1. First verify the position of the ink cartridges:


a. Open the ink cartridge cover and check to make sure the ink cartridges are in the correct order.


b. Starting from the left side, the correct order is Black, Yellow, Cyan(blue), and Magenta (red).


- If the ink cartridges are installed in the correct order, close the ink cartridge cover and continue to STEP 2.


- If the ink cartridges are not in the correct order, remove the ink cartridges that are installed in the wrong position by pressing down on the release lever(s), located above the ink cartridge and remove the cartridge(s) from the machine.


Next, reinstall the ink cartridge(s) in the correct position in the machine by gently pushing the cartridge in until it clicks.


When all the cartridges are installed, close the ink cartridge cover.


2. After closing the ink cartridge cover, the LCD will prompt - Did youchange XXXX (XXXX = the color) This message will be displayed for ink cartridge that was removed. Press the - (Minus Key for No). This willkeep accurate data of how much ink is left in the cartridge.


1. Press the INK key.


2. Press OK to select Test Print.


3. Press OK to select Print Quality.


4. Press the COLOR START key.


5. Review the Check Sheet. The colors on the Check Sheet should be in a specific order: Black, yellow, Cyan (Blue) and Magenta (red).


a If the colors on the Check Sheet are in the correct order and are notmissing any dashes, press + (Plus Key for Yes) on the key pad and continue to STEP 7.


b If the colors on the Check Sheet are not in the correct order, are missing dashes or blank or a color other than Black, Yellow, Cyan or Magenta printed press - (Minus Key for No) on the key panel and continueto STEP 6.


6. The machine will need to perform cleanings to flush out the incorrectcolor or dried ink from the ink tubes and print head.


a. The LCD will ask you BLACK OK. If black is fully printed and is the correct color, press + (Plus Key for Yes). If it#s blank, missing dashes or is the incorrect color, press - (Minus Key for No).


b. The LCD will ask you COLOR OK. If any of the 3 colors (yellow, cyan (blue), and magenta (red) are fully printed and are the correct color, press + (Plus Key for Yes). If it#s blank, missing dashes or is the incorrect color, press - (Minus Key for No).


c. The LCD will say START CLEANING + for YES and - for NO. Press + for YES to start cleaning. The machine will go through a cleaning cycle that will take approximately one to two minutes.


d. After the cleaning is completed, the LCD will say PRESS START. Pressthe BLACK START key. This will print out the print quality check sheet again for you to check and see if your print quality issue has been resolved or not


NOTE: If you wait 1 minute after the cleaning cycle is completed, the display will return to date and time. You will need to go back to STEP 3 to print the Print Quality Check Sheet again.


e. If the ink color order is correct and all of the dashes are present, press + on the key pad to select YES and continue to STEP 7.


If the colors on the Check Sheet are not in the correct order, are missing dashes or blank or a color other than Black, Yellow, Cyan or Magenta printed press - key to select NO. Repeat the cleaning process byfollowing STEPS 6a through 6d. You may have to perform this procedure up to 15 times in order to clean the ink tubes and print head


NOTE: During the cleaning process, the ink in the cartridge(s) will be consumed. Additional ink cartridges may be required to complete the cleaning process.


7. Test by printing the document that had the reported problem (wrong color printing).

Bought brand new ink but it keeps saying it doesnt recognise the ink i have put in


Take the cartridges out. Clean the contacts on the cartridges, (brass color,) with a lint-free cloth. With a almost dry damp cloth, wipe the exit areas where the ink comes out, just a couple times. Unplug the machine. Plug it back in. Open the barn door, and install ink cartridges. Allow the ink cartridges to re-align. Printer should work fine.

My printer says it is offline


To solve the problem, please see the following:

  • If the printer status is Offline:

    offline.gif
    Check that the printer is online using the following steps:

    VERIFY THE BROTHER MACHINE IS POWERD ON AND THERE ARE NO ERRORS

    1. If the LCD screen is blank, then the Brother machine is not powerd on the machine to see if it wakes from sleep mode. If it does not, then verify that it is plugged into a working outlet and any power switches are turned to the ON position.
    2. Check the LCD screen for any error messages. An example would be "Paper Jam" or Ink/Toner Empty". If the LCD screen shows an error troubleshoot to clear the isssue indicated.

    CHECK THE PRINTER STATUS

    NOTE : These steps or screens may differ depending on the operating system.
    1. For Windows® XP Users:
      Click Start => Printers and Faxes


      For Windows Vista® Users:
      Click Start => Control Panel => Hardware and Sound => Printers


      For Windows® 7 Users:
      Click Start => Devices and Printers



    2. For Windows® XP and Windows Vista® Users:
      Right click on the icon for your Brother machine and choose Use Printer Online.

      For Windows® 7 Users:
      Double click on the icon for your Brother machine => See what's printing => Printer => Use Printer Offline (Take the checkmark off.)

Hi. Printer isn't working, paper comes out blank.


Most likely the printhead is clogged. Another possibility is that the cleaning station does not work. 3 ways the printhead can clog,

1. Using Generic Ink
2. Not using the printer for a long time
3. Print a large print job after the ink indicator says the inks are running low.

You are better off replacing the unit than trying to get the printhead unclogged. Cost is usually around $40 and is only a 65% chance it willwork.

thanks

Brother Printer - Keep complaining about No Ink


Hello.

From Brother support:

"The message #NO CARTRIDGE# may appear if one or more of the
cartridges are not properly installed or an ink cartridge is
defective,such as air bubbles, or empty. Verify all the cartridges are
installed correctly and they are not empty or defective by following
the steps listed below:

NOTE: Cartridges that have already been installed are no longer
vacuum-sealed; it is very important that the cartridge remains upright.
If the cartridge is removed and placed on its side, air may be
introduced into the ink supply tubes, requiring repeated cleaning
before print quality is restored.

a. Lift the top cover to the open position until it locks securely
into place.

b. Then, remove all ink cartridges by pulling the white plastic hook
toward you and pulling the cartridges up and out of the machine.

c. Because all the ink cartridges have been removed, the LCD will
prompt you to install each color cartridge.

d. Important!! Reinstall the ink cartridge(s) in the order of the LCD
is instructing you too. Press down FIRMLY on the top of the cartridge
until it is fully seated. Push the white plastic hook towards the
cartridge to verify it is fully latched over the top edge of the
cartridge.

e. Close the top cover. The LCD will ask you if you have changed the
cartridge to new. Press 1 for yes and 2 for no. Press 1 for yes for
each color. The LCD will alternately show CLEANING and PLEASE WAIT. When the Brother machine completes the cleaning cycle, the LCD returns to Standby mode.

Hope this helps.

Phaser 8550 Problem. Window has been blank for a while, but it still was working until a few days ago. With a blank window, I can't try to follow instructions to try to fix on my own. The other day it just...


You need to contact Xerox on this one. The LCD readout being blank and the machine not responding is indicative of an internal board failure. The red light being on all of the time is an indication of a fault. Without a front panel readout of the fault you will only continue to guess what the problem is.

Definately contact Xerox about your problem or get in contact with a Xerox certified technician in your area.

Blank paper


That is the most likely cause.
Also under the cartridges, there are some ports and pads that may have dried out. In that case unplug the machine, and remove the cartridges, trickle some alcohol slowly to dissolve the sticky ink in that area. Place some paper towels under the print head area as you trickle in the alcoholl and allow it to drip into those towels. Then allow some time to dry.
The cartridges and those port areas can dry out or become very tacky.
