It seems that the black does not print.
Have you tried to print anything in black?
The black prints perfectly when I print black. The color is off when I print anything that has red in it. When I print all red, it is yellow or orange.
Please wait a minute.
Perform the color calibration by using the control panel.
I already did that .....no change
Have you tried changing the color density?
I don't know how to do that.
But it does not print red at all. RIght?
No, it does not print red. When I try to print something red, it turns out orange or yellow, depending on the intensity of the red called for in the graphics.
All other colors are fine?
Yes...excepting for instance, I think that some greens and blues are too yellowish. But doesn't the red control some of that? Brown for instance would rely on the red toner and that color is off too.
I said yes, to the above but I actually think they are off color too.
Please check the link below.
I have already been to that website......I have spent hours on this problem with no success.....that website did not help.
Are you experiencing the same issue with copying too?
interesting question.....let me test it.
it is not printing properly for that either. The purples are pale pink and gray.
skin tones are yellow.
orange tones are yellow
Have you removed any toners recently?
we replace toners all the time....whenever the machine tells us to...and perform the cleaning procedure (slides in drum) when each is replaced. I just replaced the drum hoping that was the problem...it wasn't.
Have you checked if the toner is low for any color?
Usually the computer tells us when it is low and we replace then. I cannot figure out how to check on this printer's ink levels...cannot find.
I meant printer.....not computer...in the above statement
Could you please try the Corona wires?
ANd the Drum unit too?
Do you need instructions?
what does that mean? yes I need instructions

Cleaning Corona wires and Drum unit will resolve most of the quality issues.
Oh yes.....corona wires are clean...I replaced the drum yesterday. I am sorry but we do this every time we replace a cartridge.
That is good.
Could you please try printing anything in Cyan colcor?
Yes....I have tried that...in general, I would say it isn't bad
Now, try blue.
ummm...I am confused...isn't the cyan.... blue?
I will give you the colors.
Yes, it is a light blue.
You have to try Black, yellow, Magenta and Cyan colors.
Print it alone.
how about I make up a little test sheet and email it to you for you to see?
Can you attach the piicture here?
Becuase I cannot provide email address over here for security reasons.
Okay...let's see...I will print it and take a picture, then attach it here. It'll take a minute
Do you see the attach button? like a paper clip? just above you are typing?
i am working on it....actually i selected the wrong one......give me a
the cyan and the yellow seem okay.
SO, the issue seems with the Magenta Toner.
I am leaning that way.
Could you please shake the Magenta Toner?
I did that before I contacted you.
Do you think that the Magenta TOner is low?
I am challenging yo on this one aren't I? :)
I am just checking with you, because you know the is it is full or not.
Actually, I do not think the toner is low because the machine is pretty good about telling us that and because we keep a set of all toners on hand at all times, yet we do not have a magenta on hand right now which tells me that it was replaced recently. Is there a way that you know of to check with this printer on the toner levels?
Have you ever out your computer on Toner save mode?
no, I have not. I saw that yesterday and it was not in the saver mode.
Are you using WIndows 7 as your operating system?
no...I think it is vista
Click Start button -->All Programs-->Brother--> ...-->Status Monitor.
just checked...it is vista
status monitor says 'no device'
Could you please remove all the toners, and try replacing it once again and doing a color calibration?
should I print another copy of the image you sent me?
Only after doing so.
I took out the cartridges, put them back in, set the printer to recalibrate. when it finished, I printed out your graphics and it looks exactly like the image I sent you before.
I apologize that I am out of ideas.
It is the Magenta color looking not good. Right?
I understand.....I think I am tapped out too....thank you so much for trying.
You are most welcome!
Please do not rate poor or bad.\
I am thinking I should at least replace the magenta again and see what happens. If that doesn't work....not sure what to do. Don't worry....I will rate you so you get paid. Thank you for your time.
Thank you and I would suggest the same. Please try changing the Magenta Toner.
