Brothers International's line of Multi-Functioning Printers may be defective and Brothers International may have misrepresented the requirement that consumers only use Brothers International ink toner cartridges.
Investigation and pending class action against Brother International alleging a series of malfunctions in the Brother line of Multi-Function Printers (those printers that print, scan, fax and copy all in one).
Specifically, the class action lawsuit asserts that the Brother multi-functioning line of printers had a series of defects and that Brother made a series of misrepresentations to consumers, including the following:
(1) Brother unlawfully conditions its warranty on the printers on the consumer only purchasing Brother manufactured inkjet cartridges.
(2) Brother erroneously represents that third party manufactured print cartridges are inferior to Brother manufactured inkjet cartridge,
(3) Brother machines are designed to consume color ink when the consumer only prints in black and white.
(4) Brother machines "self-clean" at a rate designed only to consume ink.
(5) Brother machines give false "Ink Empty" messages when substantial amount of ink still exists.
(6) Brothers failed to disclose that their machines suffer from a defect of the machine's printer heads to fail permanently and the cost of repair is at times more expensive than the machine itself.
