Checking the Connections

The first step in troubleshooting your Brothers printer is to check the connections. Make sure that all cables are securely connected and that the power cord is plugged into an outlet. If your printer is connected to a computer, make sure that the USB cable is properly connected to both the printer and the computer. If you are using a wireless connection, ensure that your printer is connected to your home network and that it has an active internet connection.

Updating Drivers

Outdated drivers can cause a variety of issues with your Brothers printer, so it’s important to keep them up-to-date. You can check for driver updates by visiting the Brothers website and downloading the latest version of the driver for your specific model. Once downloaded, install the driver on your computer and restart both devices before attempting to print again.

Cleaning Print Heads

If you’re experiencing poor print quality or streaks on your prints, it could be due to clogged print heads. To clean them, open up the control panel on your printer and select “Clean Print Heads” from the menu. Follow the instructions on screen to complete this process; it should take just a few minutes. Once done, try printing again and see if this has resolved the issue.

By following these tips and tricks, you should be able to quickly resolve any issues with your Brothers printer. If you’re still having trouble after trying these steps, contact Brothers customer service for further assistance.
