Default Re: Extremely clogged nozzles on W4

Here would be my suggestions to help verify that the issue is isolated to the thread:
1. Put some of the maintenance fluid in the cap associated with that print head and see if it is sucked down when running a cleaning. This will help determine if the waste tube is clogged.
2. Move the print head to another location and run a Powerful cleaning to prime it. Then, print another nozzle check. Want to see if the same issue follows from one ink line / position to another. If not, then it might be something else (i.e. filter, ink line,..).
3. If the same results show up after moving the print head, manually clean the bottom of the print head using the swab and maintenance fluid.
4. If you see a different result, try replacing the filter.
5. Call Brother technical support to see if they have any other suggestions before you send the print head in for refurbishing.

Good luck and let us know what resolves the issue.
