    Have you ever been able to send faxes? Is it network PC fax or analog fax?

Poor print quality brother mfc5860cn

Possible fault or weakness of the printing heads, possible poor ink cartridges or poor settings.
Open printer properties and set the contrast and brightness levels to desired conditions and make a est. Readjust and try once again .If there is no result try to reinstall the drivers and test. If not the head and ink can be suspects.

Be sure to have a noise filter on the ADSL line so the line quality is good enough to send and receive faxes.

My Brother MFC5860cn is printing very spottily. Can I clean it myself or do I need a repairperson.

On the left hand side of the front of the printer itself there is a button labeled "Ink". Hit that button and follow the prompts on the screen and it will take you through the steps to clean the heads and also align the printing if needed.

Brother mfc5860cn has error message print unable - 4F

Hi there
Please try this.
With some Brother printers you can try this.

Access the internal maintenance mode by pressing the Menu/Set button, then press * 2 8 6 4 within 2 seconds. This should put you in the maintenance mode menu. Enter 80, and then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key. You'll find an entry listed as purge count. If number is over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.

This will reset the purge count value. Then the printer will restart, hopefully without the annoying cannot clean message.

Some times this happens because of using cheap compatible ink cartridges if this is the case change the ink cartridges.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
