Question about Brother MFC-5440CN All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Brother 5440 won't print in color..

I use my printer mainly to print usps shipping labels.. I guess by not using it to print pictures I have caused it to clog up the magenta, yellow and cyan,, I would like to print color pictures but since I have only been using black the other colors are clogged .. I have ran the self cleaning many many times and to no avail .. I still only get a very very light to non existant print of any color other than black..

The ink is dry and you will need to take the cartridge off and clean it (maybe you will need to poke it with a needle to open it) and also you will need to open the nozzles of the printer by doing the same thing.

just be careful when u r doing that.


cheers

Why is the text printing on Zebra LP 2844-Z label incorrectly spaced?


Zebra printers are not really made to print PDF files, if the only option is PDF I'd recommend switching to print on a laser. Also open the PDF and see if they are correct in the original doc

BROTHER MFC J435W BARCODE PRINTING PROBLEMS


Sounds like a problem with the printer. The software that came with the printer should have some tools that might help you, My old Epson printer came with a set of tools, one in particular tool (which may help you) was head aligment. This use to fix the issue of non straight lines being printed. Head cleaner was another tool i would use to have thin consistent lines printed. Check your printer install cd and add the extra software if all you have installed is the basic driver.

Brother MFC 5440 CN, Can the color be turned off?


You may be able to select black only from the driver properties
One of the options is to use grey scale

goto printers right click on the printer Properties you may find the option within those settings
NOTE however, each time you switch the printer on it may use the colour as it starts and calibrates

ZEBRA LP 2844 PRINTING PROBLEM IN USPS SHIPPING ASSISTANT


Are you sure that the page size is wrong, or are you just guessing because of the way that the label is printing? I would uninstall the driver - delete the printer from printers and faxes and remove the driver from Server Properties (in the file drop down in Printers and Faxes). Go to ups.zebra.com/ctp and get the latest driver - you have to have the UPS version of the driver in order to support pass-through printing. Go into your UPS Ship Asst application and make sure that the generic thermal is not checked.

I have a new hp photosmart c6280 all in one printer. It prints great but I have been having problems printing ship labels through paypal and now usps.com Each label is sent with SAMPLE over the front, so...


I can't tell you exactly what this issue is, but I can tell you with absolute certainty that it isn't your printer. More likely, it's the way in which these files are watermarked or else a setting in the viewing application your printing from, say PDF.

But I can make some very good guesses and to some things which would cause this error...

  1. You are running some sort of trial viewer that has expired and now watermarks as "sample" anything you print. Picture viewers, some commercial document viewers, and some web browser plugins can do this.
  2. You are printing from a webpage and do not have java or scripting enabled. Many browsers require scripting to validate that you are supposed to be printing what your printing and watermark what you print if it can not.
  3. The issue is UPS, not paypal; but paypal uses UPS to do shipping...in this case you will see the error either way baacause your still using UPS but Paypal may have been aware that UPS had an issue and was addressing it with them.
  4. If your using Office products they do have an options setting to watermark print jobs. "SAMPLE" is the default watermark. But this would only effect printing from Word, Publisher, Excel, etc.
