Check that you have removed all protective strips, plastic coverings and tabs from your ink cartridge. Check and make sure you use the correct ink cartridge for the corresponding Brother printer. Check and make sure that there is no dirt or smudge in the metal contacts of your ink cartridge or printer.
If one or more of the colours are missing from your printed document, the ink cartridges may not be installed correctly or nozzles in the print head may be clogged up. To solve this issue, do the following: Check the print quality and clean the print head. Install a new genuine Brother ink cartridge.
Check Cables and Printer USB Ports

Check all cable connections (including the power cord) on the printer side. If the printer does have power and you`ve properly connected the communication cable, but the printer is still not recognized, try switching to a different USB port on the PC.

A color that, for centuries, has captivated many, magenta is a mixture of violet and red. Its hex code is #FF00FF.
The print head nozzles may be clogged. Perform a nozzle check to see if the print head nozzles are clogged. Perform a nozzle check, and then clean the print head if any of the print head nozzles are clogged.
First tip is resetting the printer`s memory so it can detect the data from your new cartridge. The second tip is manually cleaning your cartridges to free it from dust or debris so it can function properly. Take note that these tips for your printer not recognizing cartridges are applicable regardless of the brand.
Ghost prints happen when the drum or fuser unit within your printer become faulty. Because a fault with this element won`t heat the particles of the toner to a high enough temperature, the marks being made on the paper are much lighter in colour and appear more faded than typical documents.
Magenta is an extra-spectral color, meaning that it is not found in the visible spectrum of light. Rather, it is physiologically and psychologically perceived as the mixture of red and violet/blue light, with the absence of green.
As magenta is a secondary, mixed color, there are a whole family of shades out there, so depending on the type of magenta shade, it can be perceived as both. In the color wheel, magenta is made from mixing red and blue, and sits halfway between purple and red.
Inkjet printers work via subtractive color mixing. As different colors of ink are combined, each ink absorbs (subtracts) its characteristic colors and amounts of light. The light that is then reflected back to our eyes is what we see as different colors.
Fix 1: Perform basic troubleshooting

Make sure the document is set to print in color and enable the color printing feature on your printer. Check the ink level and replace the ink cartridge if necessary. Clean the print head. Most printers have an automatic cleaning feature now.

It`s usually because the printhead inside your printer is clogged or dried out. Like with most printers, Canon printheads can clog due to ink or dust drying up and collecting in the nozzle.

If your machine`s cyan, magenta, or yellow toners run out, you can choose Mono in the printer driver to allow you to keep printing. You`ll be able to keep printing until the black toner runs out. When the black toner runs out, you won`t be able to print until you replace it.

Print file sent but no printing occurs
ANSWER : Been working on these since they first were released. Never seen a problem like yours. If it happens again, try doing an engine test, as it bypasses the formatter board. The engine test is located at the right side of the manual tray opening. Look for a hole in the side wall. Stick something like a paper clip into it to actuate the test button. It will then print a lined test page. If it does that, then it points to the formatter board as the cause of your problem.

Prints blank pages, won't print from computer
ANSWER : Don’t know why you replaced the fuser, but assuming you had print before, then it must have been something you did during the procedure. Only thing I can suggest is to recheck your work. Just because you reinstalled a connector doesn’t mean that it is seated firmly enough to work. Any flat ribbon connectors that you removed and reinstalled, check to see that the contacts are all flat and not peeled back.
