SOURCE: Brother DCP-130C refuses to print the magenta ink

If you don't print at least once a month, you will clog the machine. You unfortunately have to get it fixed by a professional or get a new printer. Sorry!

SOURCE: I have a brother DCP-135c printer. the magenta ink not printing

The process to get to the print head will take you approx. 1 hour. Without being trained on it, there is a high failure rate upon completion.

The Scanner assembly needs to be taken off. Harness Cables for the Scanner need to be removed.The Upper Case Assembly needs to be taken off. Printhead casing and printhead tubing calbes need to be removed, printhead mainboard needs to be removed, and then you have access to the printhead.

Some printers automatically print automatic duplex printing, other printers allow you to manually reinsert pages to print the second side .and some printers do not support duplex printing at all.

To find out whether your printer supports duplex printing, you can check the printer manual, contact the printer manufacturer, or check the printer's properties by clicking Properties in the Print dialog box

Note that If you have more than one printer installed, it's possible that one printer supports duplex printing and another printer does not.

Go to the Maintenance Mode by pressing Pressing "Menu, *, 2, 8, 6, 4". If you done it correctly, the printer will beep, lights will flash and the control panel will read Maintenance.
After it Press 9,9 and it will reboot and start its normal reset procedure.
If it still not work, then there may be the problem with fuser or main board. Check both one-by-one. This may solve the problem.

How do I clean the toner

Sounds like a poor quality toner was put in your cartridge. If you are using remanufactured cartridges see your remanufacturer for a replacement. If you are using OEM cartridges contact Brother directly and they can sort out the issues and supply replacement cartridges.

Ghost writing on my Brother DCP-7030 all in one printer

Ghosting on machines can be one of several causes.

  1. Poor Quality/ Damp toner - Replace the toner cartridge

  2. Worn Drum Unit - Replace the Drum Unit

  3. Fuser Unit Failing - Replace the Fuser Unit (Normally more than the printer is worth).

  4. Damp Paper - Open a new ream of paper and try printing again (This is the cheapest option to start with diagnosis).

Poor Printer Quality

If you have the old drum put it back in and see what happens to the copy. if is better, then yu may have a bad new drum. They do have them. Poor copy quality is normally drum or toner in these Brothers. This model is an excellent machine by the way.

Brother DCP-135C Print Quality Settings Not Working Correctly

Have you uninstalled the driver, and reinstalled it?

Are you running Windows Vista? If so, have you downloaded the latest software from Brother's website?

It sounds like the driver is confusing the settings internally, which leads me to think that it is either corrupt or not compatible with your operating system.
