Do you need to print and the copies are dirty? Sometimes our Brother multifunction printer doesn’t print as it should and we start wondering why. It is very simple: we usually forget to clean the printheads. We need to keep track of it so the printer doesn’t leave any stains on our copies. Then, how can I clean the printheads of the Brother multifunction printers?

First, we need to know what a printhead is. This is the device through which the ink exits to print. That’s why residues start accumulating and staining the copies. Do you understand why is it necessary to maintain the printheads clean?

The easiest solution is cleaning the printhead from the Ink key. We’ll start trying until the copies improve. However, sometimes this does not work and we need to clean the printhead otherwise.

The cleaning process is now finished.
