Printing to Brother MFC-J6945DW yields striped background

When I print posters from Illustrator with a photographic (bitmap) background the print output comes out striped. See 2 photos of the striping. I spent quite some time verifying that the printer is fine. No problems if I export a PNG of the same poster and print via a Microsoft application for instance. But something is happening with the printing of bitmaps. I can print fine on the Epson at work and the printers at a document center.

 

Is there a driver setting that I need to be using? I really need to be able to print from Illustrator without exporting it first. It's really slowing me down.

The marks that look like water stains or coffee are intentional. The bitmap is a scan of an old piece of parchment and it comes out not looking like that at all.

Hello jonathanp93391149,

 

Sorry to hear about this experience. I would request you try resetting Illustrator's preferences manually and see if that helps resolve the issue:


- Close all Adobe applications.
- Go to Location C:\Users\%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Adobe
- Rename Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Illustrator 26 Settings folders to Adobe Illustrator.old and Adobe Illustrator - 26 Settings.old

- Relaunch Illustrator


Disclaimer: Please note that renaming preferences folders will remove all the custom settings, and Illustrator will launch with default settings. You can also take a backup of the folders in case you want to. The location is mentioned above.
 

 

Looking forward to your response.

 

Thanks,

Anubhav
