Its an alignment page. after you replace your cartridge, the printer needs to be realigned with most models so that the cartridge can accurately print without blurring or making pictures look funny.

its automatic. check your settings for the printer. you might be able to change that.

If your printed pages have a horizontal line in the text or graphics (as shown in the illustration below) or blank text, some of the nozzles may be clogged and need to be cleaned

    Print head is not printing seems to be clogged from non-use. Have tried test printing through several new cartridges and still not working. Can the old - dryed ink be cleaned off of the print heads?


    Hi, below is from the brother website for your model. Very common for the ink heads to become clogged /dry out. You probably have done this but here it is anyway. your print head is part of the machine, so it will need to be disassembled to clean it, That can be very difficult. Try the following anyway, it might help you. also, you could try using a Q-Tip wet with vinegar water to get under to the bottom of the print heads, if you can get the head to move off its dock and then unplug it when its moved over. anyway here is the Brother link info (without pictures-see the link above if you need the pictures)

    How to improve print quality Cleaning the print head
    To ensure good print quality, the MFC will regularly clean the print head. You can start the cleaning process manually if needed. Clean the print head and ink cartridges if you get a horizontal line in the text or graphics on your printed pages. You can clean Black only or three colors at a time (Cyan/Yellow/Magenta), or all four colors at once.
    Cleaning the print head consumes ink. Cleaning too often uses ink unnecessarily.
    Caution
    Do NOT touch the print head. Touching the print head may cause permanent damage and may void the print head’s warranty.
    1 Press Ink.
    2 Press or to select Cleaning.
    Press Menu/Set.
    3 Press or to select Black, Color or All.
    Press Menu/Set.
    The MFC will clean the print head. When cleaning is finished, the MFC will go back to standby mode automatically. If you clean the print head at least five times and the print has not improved, call Brother Customer Service (see Brother numbers on page i).
    Checking the print quality
    If faded or streaked colors and text appears on your output, some of the nozzles may be clogged. You can check this by printing the Print Quality Check Sheet and looking at the nozzle check pattern.
    1 Press Ink.
    2 Press or to select Test Print.
    Press Menu/Set.
    3 Press or to select Print Quality.
    Press Menu/Set.

    6 Check the quality of the four color blocks on the sheet.
    7 If all lines are clear and visible, press 1 (Yes), and go to Step 10.
    OR
    If you can see missing short lines as shown below, press 2 (No).
    The LCD will ask you if the print quality is OK for black and three colors.
    OK Poor
    Is Quality OK?
    1.Yes 2.No
    Black OK?
    1.Yes 2.N
