    My Brother MFC5440CN does the same thing and then after the cartridges are all replaced it still says near empty yellow and near empty magenta. The crazy thing is it prints in those two colors or everything comes out orange and green!?! How do I fix this??????

    My MFC-210C suddenly stopped printing in red and yellow.

    I performed all cleaning suggestions in owners manual. Called customer service and was told it was because I used competitors ink cartridges. My machine is 2 1/2 years old, never used much. Not happy.

    Do you have to change all the ink cartridges? Replaced blk and that's all I need. The other colors are out, but don't need them - only want to print in blk. LCD reads NO CARTRIDE OR CHANGE MAGENTA...PLEASE HELP ME

Says ''near empty mgent'' what do I need to do?

Printer has detected low level of this color ink. The warning is telling you the ink is about to run out completely very soon. It should still be printing ok until it does run out. Then the message will read "Mgnta tank empty". All printing will then stop. Best to get a new set of cartridges ready as they usually all run out about the same time.

This message is printed because the ink of mgenta color is missing or cartige is running out of the ink. If u have put new inks then check whether they r inserted properly or not.

My brothers mfc 240c printer wont print because one ink is not full but it has black

You need to have ink in all cartridges to print. You can put a small electrical tape over the little window on the cartridge to print with empty inks, but you risk an air bubble in the ink tubes. If you don't care about printing color at some time, just cover the window on empty carts.

Magenta Near Empty??

This is only a reminder! The cart will show "empty" when it is really empty. You can print on until the printer stopps because of empty cart (and prints on when it is replaced).
Take the new on out and put it in again. answer display question with "1" (Yes, cart changed). "Near empty" Message will disappear.

Only printing black and cyan

If you have used third party carts before you can't repair this problem due to the fact that the filter inside the printhead is clogged with particles. There is no chance to clean the filter. Sorry. Do use only dye ink. Pigmented ink is the printhead killer for brother printers!
