hi all ; need some help ; gt 541 is about a year and a half old ; two months ago a brother tech came and tried to clean the black head which was printing streaky with banding ; said the head needed replacing and he replaced with a refurnbished one from brother which only comes with a 45 day warranty .

this weekend same problem ; banding with black head ; clears when I do a head cleaning through the machine ; stays clean for about three prints then starts banding again;

can anyone walk me through a detailed way to clean the heads and flush the line ?
thanks in advance

Hi Marty,
Have you tried doing a nozzle check just after cleaning? You should check that all the nozzles are firing perfectly before you start printing. You might need to do more aggressive clean if there is something blocking the heads (Menu > Head Cleaning > Powerful > Black).

Something else worth checking is the caps (Menu > Maintenance > Cap/Wiper Clean). The caps are the black rubber seals underneath the heads when they are parked. Check that they are wet with ink and not cracked or dirty. If they aren't sealing around the heads correctly, that can cause the head to dry out.
