Brother mfc-5460cn terrible print quality

I chose an image - looking down toward a Rowboat on the sea as a test print, you can imagine the wood, the color, but on printing(as with any image) it comes out lacking correct color, it's all washed-out looking and very Yellowish all over, like it's been yellow filtered! I'v checked all that I know to check, but no answer! they are new print cartridges, gone through the usual clean command, and test prints~ help!!

Does it copy an image correctly? if it does than the problem is with the driver or your computer. in the setting menu try turning off the "true to Life feature as this can sometimes cause this kind of problem

I have a Konica C250 machine which cannot print red color at all. I had changed the toner and image unit but still cannot print red color. How can I solve this problem?


Recommended that you have a tech come out and look at it might have a bad LED assy. for the Magenta Image unit. All other color print OK? Can you print gradation test pattern for each color in service mode? Meter count, details, stop 00 stop 01 Test Output Gradation pattern select magenta. If you open the side cover after printing a document with the color magenta try to catch a print of paper do you see the color magenta on the transfer belt if yes the drum is ok could be the transfer belt magenta 1st transfer roller on the belt replace the belt assy.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at https://www.6ya.com/expert/normanj_7893313f0751935f

Kodak 5100 printing about 3 images of each character on all documents have had a new print head for about 7 months


IT is not the problem of your printer sir. I would tell you the steps to do so and it would be fine. When you are going to printer Image right click the image and chose "print as picture" there will be a wizard for printing the image chose there the way of printing as streched image and then you problem will be solved.

Faint horizontal dark line about 2 1/8 inches down from the top


Hi,

You can easily fix this yourself, one of the quickest ways to fix it is to print 10 doublesided blank pages and it will clean the inside of the machine for you and the line will vanish.

For further print quality problems on this machine follow these instructions to troubleshoot.

When troubleshooting image quality problems, it is important to understand the situations in which the problem occurs.

Print a copy of the color test pages to determine whether the problem is in one color or more than one color.
  1. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button on the Control Panel to select [Troubleshooting] on the Display Screen, and then press the [OK] button.
  2. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select [Print Quality Problems], and then press the [OK] button.
  3. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select [Color Test Pages], and then press the [OK] button to print the test pages. If the problem occurs with one color on the test pages, perform the solutions for this problem. If the problem occurs in more than one color on the test pages, restart your search and select a case for the image quality problem occurring through all colors.

Color Quality is not so great anymore


Sounds like the machine needs to be cleaned. Probably a heavy use machine that has quite a bit of ink spray build up on the inside. I would imagine your service station has quite a bit of ink build up in it as well possibly causing the cartridges not to be cleaned like they should. A good cleaning cures most of what ails inkjet printers. We would charge $85 in our shop for complete disassembly down to the metal frame and cleaning.
