  1. Hello there.
    I am contacting you regarding the video “Print Head Cleaning DIY solution for Brother inkjet printers”. Good piece but not complete. The video is missing how you removed the plastic gear that controls the pick up roller. My printer has the same type of problem but I can’t take the gear out to examine if it is good or not.
    Hope you will be able to help. Thanks


  2. I too have a Brother printer that only uses Black and blue to paper.
    How do I access the printer head cover to place the paper towel in place? Your video completely ignores this procedure. Otherwise, very informative.
