Mfc 495cw printer is printing everything pink. I just replaced all the color catridges. how can i fix this?


Try a Nozzel check to see what colours are missing. I would assume that Black, Cyan and Yellow are missing since you are only printing pink. Then do a Printhead Clean to clear the other nozzels.

My Printer will not print black. MFC 495cw. There is a new cartridge. I ran the cleaning with no success.


The following may work: remove all the ink supplies. Remove the printhead and soak it for about 5 minutes in 0.5" of very hot water. Gently blot the printhead on a soft damp paper towel to remove the excess water, then replace in the printer and then reinstall the ink supplies.

Brother MFC 4420C prints plain sheets of paper.


To start ensure that is not a software problem.
Go to Control Panel >> Installed Printers. Remove the printer. Install the printer again using the software disk or downloading the driver software from Brother website.
If that does not fix the problem, and the printer prints blank sheets, then it is usually a clogged printhead.
The printheads can be cleaned removing the ink carriage and soaking it in isopropyl alcohol overnight. If that does not work, then the printhead must be replaced.
