(Previous Part #'s: SA5846401, SA5846301, SA5864201, SA5846101, SA5846001)
NEW Brother OEM Printhead for GT-541 & GT-782 Printers. This printhead is for CMYK colors ONLY.
Brother now REQUIRES changing the Ink Supply Tube when replacing a printhead. The reason is, if there is coagulated ink in the supply tube, it will immediately clog the new head. Failure to replace the ink tube will make any warranty claim on a new printhead, difficult to get approval.
An alternate to buying a new tube, would be to use our GT Ink Tube Flush Kit to completely clean the original tube. MAKE SURE there is NO INK RESIDUE left in the old ink tube and the Ink Needle is completely clean. Also inspect the ink tube for kinks or cracks. Depending on the year of your printer, you should get one of the following Ink Supply Tubes with the head. If you have old style tubes, consider replacing them (see description of the ink tube conversion kit for more info):
- Old Style Double Wall Ink Tube OEM
- Old Style Double Wall Ink Tube GENERIC KIT
- New Style Single Wall Ink Tube OEM
- Ink Supply Tube Conversion Kit OEM
ATTENTION: While changing the ink tube, we recommend to also pay extra attention to cleaning the ink needle. A clogged ink needle has proven to be the cause of many print quality issues that are mistakenly blamed on a clogged or "bad" head.
NOTE: White ink printheads are different than the CMYK printheads. CLICK HERE for White Printheads
