Question about Brother MFC-640CW All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My printer now refuses to print in colour to an acceptable degree of quality , the black print is good and colour reasonable but only if I request the best settings which take a long time to print out.I've completed the cleaning process many times.Ther is improvement for a short while after which it reverts back to very poor.

The problem is with the print head is clogged,you need to replace the print head if you try to clean and nothing.To reach the print head needs to undo all your printer is a very complicated process, as a technician tell you brother.If i have been useful please give me a vote :).Thanks

I have set the default print to black only and use only black printing. However, the colour cartridges also get used up for no reason

HelloOne tip I know is try not to turn the printer power on and off, every time you turn the printer on it runs through a head leaning type process, sucking ink out every time.
As far as getting it to print with just the black cartridge in the advanced settings there should be a check box for this, although i have heard from some of our customers that this feature may be dis-able in later driver versions
I hope this helpsRegardsGrant

Poor quality prints ( even in black ) Brand new toner cartridge Have tried different qualities of paper

I am a computer dealer in Perth and had to replace 5 of these printers out of my pocket. There is no fix and Samsung was very unfair and refused to replace these shoddy printers. Colour printed fine but black is faded.
It makes no difference if original toners or compatible ones are in use.
Samsung is very unprofessional in refusing to replace these printers with an inherent design fault.

Hp psc 1510 - only want black ink

Hi Manavoc,

I will explain you the cause for it.

It prints in yellow first and then override with black for better quality. This is the reason your color ink gets empty.

Have a great day!
