Question about Brother MFC 240C All-In-One InkJet Printer
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.
