I have a new printer. Specifically, this one.

When I try to run a test print, it repeatedly spits out blank sheets of paper that haven't been printed on at all, even though I can hear the printhead chugging down its guide and the ink cartridges are all installed properly. It's done this four times now.

What am I doing wrong?

A-ha! So according to the Brother helpline, running the cleaning and testprint process 4 times isn't enough. One may have to:

a) Release each cartridge, jiggle them carefully, then re-insert them into their respective bay, making sure they're clicked into place.

b) Repeat the cleaning/testprint process another 4-5 times (making it 9-10 in all, I dunno, I lost count) before the test prints start looking the way they do in the manual.

And here I thought overdoing the cleaning/testprint process might damage the cartridges.

wahj > That was my first guess too, but the way this thing is set up, there's no protective film over the printhead to be removed.
