Hello,


I was wondering if any members of the forum are able to kindly assist me in resolving my problem.

I am trying to carry out initial set-up of Brother MFC-6890CDW printer and find that I cannot print black on the intial test print page (colour is OK).

The machine is brand-new, and I have tried re-cleaning the headsseveral times but this doesn't solve the issue. I have also tried removing and re-installing the cartridge, but this doesn't help either.

I would be extremely grateful if I could be advised what to do.

Thank you in advance.

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.

How do you remove the printhead? Specifically for this model? Thanks.
