Re: brother dcp115c. alignment must be out its printing...
No you don't have to take it to be serviced. There is a work around for this. It is not an ideal work around but given the low cost of these printers they probably aren't worth spending the money on at a service center.
OK the Fix is, you simply turn OFF BiDirectional printing in the printer driver settings.
The printer will then print correctly.
Also I'm sure if you could obtain the service software for alignment it's probably not beyond the abilities of a back yarder. :)

Looks like you have a clogged/possibly damaged heads and head alignment issues. Do the alignment procedure and check the manufacturer support website or Google for the factory reset button combination of the printer. Cheers, Mike.
Much of the satisfaction in solving scrabble or other word puzzle games comes from doing it yourself.
Having someone tell you the answer is a lot like having someone else date your girlfriend and then tell you how they enjoyed themselves.
Here's a few hints:
- The letters ER and RE often appear together at the beginning or end or the word.
- The letters ing often appear together at the end of the word.
- the letters GR often appear together,
- If you have few vowels and lots of consonants, the word must contain combined consonants.
Usually the owner never changed the factory combo (#000). I had no such luck and had to pry the latch and manually open the catch with a piece of thin metal. then I took the lock out and looked for a spaced cog on each tumbler(from the backside). After aligning them in a row, I the rotated all three together up a couple positions to align the combination to it's proper location.
Check the alignment of the photoelectric door eyes, located at ankle height on either side of the door. Usually, something is preventing the light from reaching the other side (receptor), and check to make sure that the eye lenses are clean. (You cannot actually see the light beam). Check that the lights are on and (usually) green on both sides of the door. These are the indicators that show you that the sensors are working. If one has been knocked out of alignment, it can be re-aligned using a string line, and observing the lights on the light and receptor. Somewhat more common is that one of the wires is either touching the other, or has come loose. Usually, the wires are just twisted together at the eyes. Lastly, if you have no lights lit on the eyes, and adjusting doesn't resolve the issue, one may be defective. Replacements are available at Lowe's/Home Depot, and others. Check your lights first, and look for something blocking the path of the light.
It's possible that your printer has soiled alignment strips/wheels that are throwing out it's spacial awareness.
If you open the printer lid and check for a clear plastic strip (with fine black lines inked on it) at the back of the printer you may notice that one or more parts are soiled with some ink, dust or are worn away. If it's the latter you could have problems but usually something like this comes down to a bit of dust and ink smearing so a gentle (emphasis on GENTLE here!) cleaning should remove the crud and get you back up and running again.
Can't remember if there's a similar disk/wheel on the Epson models as there are in HP officejets so I'd advise looking carefully for other possible soiling, etc...
remove timing cover, on the left cam sprocket(closer to inside of
vehicle) you will see the letter (I)for intake and a notch above it on
the valve cover align those marks.Next on the right cam sprocket you
will see the letter (E) for exhaust and a notch above it on the valve
cover align those marks.Last you have a notch on your crank sprocket,
align that notch with the arrow just above it.Align all marks then turn
belt to revolutions and see if marks are stilled aligned if not try
again until you get it right.If so put everything back together and
It sounds like your cartridge is bad. You should try replacing them again...you might have gotten a bad one.
Or try this:
Get the printer to move the carriage away from the side where it normally rests. Look inside there, and beneath the rest area, sometimes there is a little rubber stamp that presses up against the cartridges. It usually is filled with dry ink. Take a wet paper tower (probably several of them) and try to get as much ink as you can up. Also, there is sometimes a little rubber wiper that cleans the printhead as it passes by. Make sure this is clean also.
Now take the cartridges out. Get another clean paper towel, sopping with water. Press the nozzels down against it, but don't wipe. Just dab them, until you're getting some solid lines of ink on the towel.
Then look for the pattern of copper colored dots on the cartridge. Clean this with alcohol, and then look inside the printer where these dots (contacts) would line up inside the carriage. There will be a smilar pattern of dimples. Clean these with alcohol, and let it dry.
If possible, you might want to try to fit a towel damp with water beneath the print carriage (where the paper runs through). This collects a lot of ink sometimes. Be careful not to force anything.
Finally, put it all back together and try your print.
