I have a Brother MVC 215C color inkjet with scanner, fax etc ...
If I don't print for a week or two, I have to clean the black ink - not the colors as they are fine, just the black. I've tried different cartridges with the same results. I have two original cartridges from Brother and they have been refilled as have the colors.
I'm on the same cartridges I bought with the printer two years ago.
Is it the print head?
