Could be your print head has gone out of alignment.
This is only a problem if you do bi-directional printing - speeds up printing but even when working correctly does degrade print quality a bit.
Do a print alighment test (see your user manual - available on the Brother website) and follow the instructions on the test sheet it will produce.
If this doesn't help, try disabling bi-directional printing. This will vary according to which operating system you have, but for example in Windows XP:
1. Go to Control Panel 2. Double click "Printers and Faxes" 3. Right click the appropriate icon for your Brother printer 4. Click on "Advanced" tab 5. Click on "Printing Defaults" button 6. Click on the "Settings" button 7. Un-check the "Bi -Directional Printing" box 8. "OK" to close all windows.
If neither helps, this most likely means your print head has been damaged. I'm afraid there is no simple solution to this problem. Repairing these machines isn't straight forward and parts are very difficult to obtain and very, very expensive, so much so that 99 times out of a 100, it isn't cost effective to repair. You could approach a Brother service agent, but it's highly probably that they will charge you more than buying an equivalent brand new machine.

The printing is blurry. How can I fix it?


I would start by cleaning under the print head. You could have some dust that's causing the blurring.
You can also run a "cleaning cycle" and a "head alignment" which may help.

How do I fix blurry print


Blurry prints can come from a couple of things. However with most issues relating to blurry prints on laser prints the following needs to be checked.

1) Is the paper damp - Try opening a new ream of paper and try printing to clear it.

2) Is the toner unit incorrectly installed or remanufactured with incorrect toner - Try replacing the toner cartridge.

3) Is the drum past it\'s use - If your machine has been reading drum near end or replace drum then it has reached or reaching maximum page count for the drum. Replace the Drum unit.

4) Are the reflecting mirrors dirty - Check inside the machine when you have the toner and drum unit out and see if you can see a narrow indentation above where the drum sits in the machine(Normally about 15cm long by about 8mm wide with rounded ends). Carefully clean this indentation with a lint free cloth.

HP 4200 printing very light, smudgy and blurry


Remove the rear door by pulling it down and squeezing the left tab to remove it.

Press the blue hooks and remove the fuser. Look for a worn coating on the gray roller.
