Why is it necessary to perform a head clean on your printer? How can you clean the print heads on your Brother DCP-J140W? These devices keep adding on new functionalities that make our lives easier, and automatic print head cleaning is one of them.

We recommend running a print head clean when your printed pages begin to show a lower quality: horizontal lines in text or graphics or blurred or faded text and images. This procedure will consume some of your cartridges ink, so it advisable to use it only when truly necessary.
