Troubleshooting common errors of Brother Printer

I am getting frequent Paper Jam

Paper Jam is the most common error in almost every printer. But the latest models of Brother® Printers are free from paper jams. You merely get into paper jams on those models. However, if you have an old Brother® Printer then you can get a paper jam every day. The paper jam occurs when a paper chunk or some junk stuck inside your printer or when your paper rollers draw multiple pages simultaneously. Open your printer and remove all the junk.

Fade Printing

Fade printing means a low toner level on your cartridges. Whenever you get fade printouts; check the toner level immediately. If the level is near to the minimum limit then refill your toner or purchase new cartridges. Always purchase original toner cartridges because third-party cartridge can ruin the print quality.

Slow Printing

Slow printing is very common when you are printing from wireless means. Place your printer near to the Wi-Fi source or use the high-speed USB cable for printing. Switching the print quality to low (or drift) mode can also increase printing speed.

If you are facing any kind of error while setting up or using Brother® Printer then talk to Brother® Support immediately.
