Printhead Life 

The replaceable or non-replaceable PRINTHEAD will eventually fail over time with usage and age. Check User Manual to determine if your printer’s Printhead can be removed/replaced.

 

 

NOTE: A compatible, remanufactured or re-branded Brother ink cartridge can be problematic due to unknown ink formulations or cartridge body design. In addition, the smart chip (at base of cartridge) may not provide reliable printer-cartridge connectivity once installed. Compatible/clone cartridges are typically purchased on-line or at select retailers (i.e  sold under a different label than the regular Brother cartridge packaging) and is essentially a “remanufactured tank” of the Brother original/genuine ink cartridge. For the best refilling experience, only use Brother original/genuine ink tanks (Brother logo should be visible on cartridge’s side label).
