Question about Brother MFC 420CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
This is New and the first cartridges i changed after a couple copys said low on one color then print another says low on another . took back to where i bought and they charged to fix and would tell me nothig but not to leave on I DON'T LEAVE ON !. now have made 8 or 10 copys ( Black & White ) and it is telling me low on yellow , so i removed and looked at and put back now it says out of black . ALL ARE NEW . "AGAIN " What is going on with this thing ??
Well this sound similar to the problem I had a first with mine. Once I replaced one the next would be out and so on. but some where not out at all. I find when changing the carts remove them from the machine turn the computer off so no connection to the computer and remove the power from the wall. Replace them and do not plug into the computer and run a test print. My software on my computer produced a low ink warning which obviously its not so I pulled them out again used a Q-Tip Cleaned up the contacts on the ink carts and in the unit that I could reach.
The thing that I always worry about since working for HP's AIO Tech support department their ink carts had experation dates and would constantly fail.
Send the machine through all the cleaning processes and alignments ect.
and if the ink that was replaced with different ink than that which was origionally placed in the printer from Brother this might continue to produce these error.
so after messing around with my unit turning it on and off and doing a bunch of printing it finally leveled itself off since I never leave my printer on all the time.
Check and make sure all your carts are in properly.
give that a try and if that doesn't work let me know and I will post a secoundary solution for you.
