Question about Brother DCP Office Equipment & Supplies
I've cleaned the printing head with the auto cleaning it cleaned all colours but yellow is their any other way of cleaning the head
Hi Good day!! Too bad i think the problem is the print head of your unit. maybe the tube inside that connects from the print head is clogged. i suggest to contact your local supplier to repair it or replace it if the unit is still in warranty process..

I guess you have used generic ink carts.
You should buy an original brother ink cart.
When done so make sure all other carts are at full level:
Press menu then start b/k copy then fourtimes arrow up (tel.index). Machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start b/k copy. Machine will refresh ink within tubes and print head and do some power cleaning. when finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy to run an extra power purge.
Leave maintenance by pressing 9 then 9.
Do run a quality test print.
If you re lucky the ph will work again.
THERE IS NO WAY TO CLEAN THE PH OUTSIDE EXCEPT BY Power Purge (7-6-3) within maintnenace mode.
If you like to save money refill ORIGINAL Carts by drilling a 2mm hole into the top (O of brother brandname) . You can leave the hole open to refill the cart next time directly without taking it out of the printer.
Mix some 3ml 85%-glycerin alc (drugstore) with 3ml of destilled water and 5 ml of DYE(!) ink and refill the c/y/m cart.
For bk mix 1 ml glycerin alc with 4ml dest. water and 15 ml bk DYE ink (shake well before refill).
This is -nearly- the exacte mixture of original brother ink.

I've had some success, if one hasn't been printing with the ink dry for awhile , through soaking the entire printhead in a bowl of alcohol. Soaked it for 1-2 days wiping it from time to time. Took awhile, but it worked. Might have to do it again soon. Bottle of rubbing alcohol 80 cents. New print head $38. Rather waste the bottle of alcohol :P
I have not had great success at all with my brother's canon. He ran it clogged for almost a year and I tried the above and it didn't work. I'd say the transistors in the print head probably overheated and it's shot so he bought a new one. Too bad Canon doesn't make it easier to buy new printheads.

Try to clean the head several times.

Testimonial: "got black going cleaned it 12 times yesterday and 6 today and were printing black as soot."
take swabs and use alcohol to manually clean it...GENTLY and with not too much alcohol. You will go through several swabs. Use the foam swabs, not cotton, so you don't leave junk behind.
