How To Connect A Brother Printer To Wi-Fi

The printer comes in a color printed cardboard box with convenient handles for transportation. The box is light enough so that it can be carried alone without much difficulty, even over long distances.

Inside, along with the printer, we found the following accessories:

  • Power cable;
  • USB A to USB B cable (1.8 m);
  • Two printheads;
  • A set of ink for printing, consisting of five bottles with paint sealed in polyethylene (two with black and three with inks of different colors)
  • Large plastic bag for transporting the printer;
  • CD with software and drivers;
  • A set of printed materials including a quick instruction manual.

It is difficult to think of a more complete set of delivery for the printer. There is an interface cable, and a complete (and not a starter) set of ink, and even a package in case you move with a printer, for example, from home to a country house or office. As for ink, it is worth noting two huge bottles of black ink with a volume of 170 ml each. a generous gift from the manufacturer, which can be enough for a very long time.

The Ink Tank line of printers is currently represented by five models, differing in the presence or absence of a Wi-Fi module, as well as in color solutions. So, the HP Ink Tank 315 MFP does not have a Wi-Fi module, and the HP Ink Tank Wireless 415 model, which came to us for testing, does. The models HP Ink Tank 319 and HP Ink Tank 419 differ from the above only in the color of the case. a blue insert at the top. Well, the third printing device, HP Ink Tank 115, is not an MFP, but a printer with technical characteristics SIMilar to its two older brothers, but without a Wi-Fi module and a scanner. If you do not need the last functions, then you should take a closer look at this particular model.

Ink and printheads

The main difference between all three new models from other devices from HP and other manufacturers is the built-in CISS system. Otherwise, these are the same four-color inkjet printers, like some other models, which use inks of three primary colors for color printing and black for monochrome. Note that the color ink used for the HP Ink Tank is Water Soluble, while the black ink is pigmented. The printheads in the devices are replaced separately. Unfortunately, the manufacturer did not provide information on the resource of the heads, and it was also impossible to find out their cost due to the fact that they were not on sale at the time of this writing.

The total load on the MFP, according to the manufacturer’s recommendations, should not exceed 1000 pages per month, and the average should fit in the range from 400 to 800 pages per month. The figure clearly hints at actively typing home users. If you stick to the specified load, then one refill of ink will be enough for you for several months. The ink for the HP Ink Tank is supplied in SEPARATE patented bottles: 70 ml in color and 135 ml in black. According to the manufacturer, the set of color inks is sufficient to print 8000 A4 pages at 5% coverage according to the ISO method. But two bottles of black ink with a capacity of 170 ml each, included in the standard delivery set, should be enough to print 15,000 monochrome pages using the same method.

Printer hardware problems

Close the printhead access door

The printhead access cover must be closed before printing.

Printer shuts down unexpectedly

Check the power supply and connection to it.

Make sure the printer power cord is securely connected to a working electrical outlet.

When Auto Power Off is enabled, the printer automatically turns off after 2 hours of inactivity to reduce power consumption.

Connection and refueling

Installation on a computer

Connecting the HP Ink Tank Wireless 415 to your computer will NOT take long. In principle, you can do without a computer altogether. If you plan to print photos and documents from mobile devices, then for Android and iOS you only need to download and install branded applications from the corresponding software services. When connected to a PC You also do not need to use the supplied CD. The whole process of selecting and installing the necessary software is conveniently organized through the start page on the manufacturer’s website.

But before you install the drivers, you need to install the printheads and refill the ink in the MFP. For the first time, this operation and reading a detailed manual with pictures will take some time, and the subsequent refueling will take only a couple of minutes from the user. no more than it takes time to replace ordinary cartridges in printers without CISS.

When installing printheads, special attention should be paid to the design of this part of the MFP. The heads are blocked by a blue plastic cover with a spring lock, which SIMultaneously serves as an ink supply unit. After installation, the manufacturer categorically prohibits removing and reinstalling the heads themselves, but you need to open the cover with the ink supply unit whenever you are going to transport the MFP over long distances. With ink already filled in in containers, nothing terrible will happen when the device is turned over, but when the lid is closed, air from the ink channels can get into the heads, and they will fail. That is why during transportation the ink supply unit must be disconnected from the printheads. It is worth paying special attention to.

Now all that remains is to fill the MFP. HP has its own Patented refill technology, which ensures the user remains with clean hands. You will NOT even need napkins, which is SIMply nonsense for any third-party CISS. It’s all about the special design of the MFP filling necks and non-spill caps on the ink bottles. The ink begins to slowly flow from the bottle into the container only when these two elements are tightly connected to each other. As soon as you pull the bottle out of the neck a little, the ink stops flowing. The dirtiest thing that the user can see at the same time is a tiny ink speck on the cut of the bottle cap that appears when a very sloppy quick refueling.

The ink tanks in the HP Ink Tank Wireless 415 are rated at 70 ml, and the black ink tanks are rated at 80 ml. At the same time, bottles with black ink, unlike colored ones, are designed for more than one refueling. It is gratifying that each bottle is sold separately. on the official website it is indicated for each one, but they are easy to find on sale and are cheaper. The bottles have a patented ink filling system that prevents them from flowing out even when turned over with the lid open, like in a good old inkwell.
