There's a reason people on here get vague, unhelpful answers like that.One of them is because users ask here before making an effortthemselves.The other is because computer equipment & model numbers need to be exact.I had to read your feedback to see that you actually have an MFC-3420C.Here....drivers and manual.http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/as/nz/en/model_top/colormfc/mfc3420c_as.html?reg=as&c=nz&lang=en&prod=mfc3420c_as......You're welcome.

(Not a criticism of you, drcspy."My car's broken"."What model is it?""Ummm....blue".)

yeh well soemtimes I give out minimal assistance to someone perhaps because I seems to me that they haven't even TRIED to help themselves..........I still shake my head in wonder that someone who's already ON the internet cant figure out that google has all the answers........and that the obviousl place to get printer software is from teh makers website..........

yes I did try to look on google(drcspy) but didn't help in getting the ink out as the ink has gone under a part that I can't get it out without undoing the screws this is totally different model to my old one

it pays and helps to mention such things.....

crazycowe, Feb 21, 11:06pm
so how do I get the ink out if it's underneath the plastic with out taken the screws out

drcspy, Feb 21, 11:18pm
well it's not a brother MFC34200C

BIG difference

Time to give you the benefit of the doubt & hope the original post was just a typo.
Is it working now?

Since it's a second-hand printer, it wouldn't hurt to give the print head a clean:-1 Press Ink.-2 Press UP or Down to select Cleaning. -Press Menu/Set.-3 Press Up or Down to select the colour you want to clean.-Press Menu/Set.-The machine will clean the print head. When cleaning is
finished, the machine will go back standby mode automatically.

YOU dont have to be you just have to be100% ACCURATE with computers ALWAYS

Good luck with a used brother inkjet - many cleans and still one colour will probably fail, and all the call center can tell you is to do more cleans and that it is out of warranty. Worst inkjets ever.
