    • How to clean with paper towel

    • Tear a single sheet of paper towel in half. Fold the sheet in half several times until it is about 1/2 inch wide.

    • Put a few drops of distilled water on top of the paper towel and lay it in the trough under the print head,. Move the print head over the towel and let it sit for at least 15 minutes. This will soften the ink on the print head.

    • Move print head assembly back to its resting position. You will probably notice that the paper towel now has one big black blob of ink on it. (There is so much excess ink on the print head that all the colors are mixing to make black.)

    • If you cannot clearly see individual colors, then dampen another spot on the paper towel and move the print head back over the newly dampened spot on the paper towel. Continue repeating this until you see all the individual colors.

    • *note: when reassembling be certain to move the print head back to its resting position (the extreme right side above the park carriage)

Sonuç

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

Thanks for the guide. But I don't think you need to tear apart the printer to do that, just start a print cycle and when the printhead moves, plug the printer off. then you can freely move the printhead and put the paper towel under it.

Hello Filipe,

I have a problem with my printer and I came across this page. I have a Brother MFC-240C printer.

How do I reach the printerhead to clean it? Do I need to take off the top cover to reach it?

Thank you for your help.

Patrik Der Ashodian -

Thanks Filipe for the extra advice :) I had already tried the paper towel method on my printer it did not work for me my print head was damaged and I had to replace it. I could not find any strip downs of my Printer at the time of posting this tutorial so I thought it was more useful for others in the future going this route
