How To Manually Clean Print Heads On Brother Mfc-j5945dw

Carry out these steps to clean the Brother MFC-J5945DW print heads manually

  • Usually, the print heads are cleaned automatically in the Brother printers whenever required.
  • The print head cleaning is executed automatically, either using the printer's control panel or product software from the computer to avoid touching the print heads.
  • If the Brother printer prints poor printing qualities in the print nozzle check sheet even after replacing the new cartridges, clean the print head nozzles manually.
  • Cleaning the print head unnecessarily consumes more ink and leads to loss.
  • The requirements for manually cleaning the print heads are plastic hose, large syringe, nozzle cleaner, and dry tissues.
  • Turn on the printer and select the print head cleaning from the Brother printer's control panel.
  • When the print head prompts you to open the scanner unit or top cover, lift the printer's top cover and wait until the print head moves from its home position.
  • When the print head starts moving, unplug the power cord and place the dry tissue under the print head without disturbing the internal parts.
  • Move the print head gently to wipe the spilled inks under the print head.
  • Do not remove the tissue before cleaning the clogged inks inside the ink tube.
  • Remove the ink cartridges and keep it away with closed caps.
