I wouldn't be surprised. Since you're going to need black ink eventually anyway, put in a new black cartridge and find out.

Changed yellow ink to new cartridge. Printer won't recognize.


I contacted the Brother site, the support function there. Pursuant to what I found there, I unplugged the printer for ten seconds and replugged. The message display then told me that cyan was empty, and that magenta was near empty.

I installed a new cartridge in place of the empty cyan, and that fixed it.

MFC 420 CN says blue is empty--cartridge brand new


Alright so here is the issue. When you installed the new cartridge it should have asked you if this was a new cartridge or used and to press 1 or 2 depending on your answer. This tells the printer to reset the levels. Try taking all the cartridges out and turning the printer off/on with them still removed . Then reinstall them one by one answering the used or new question when asked. Also to take into consideration is that print cartridges have a use by date. If it is not used by the recommended date then it may read as a used cartridge or not at all. Verify this date on the packaging if still available. All else fails buy another cartridge.

At the brother site. Click Product Support Then Your language, which for me was US English. Then click MFC then scroll down about 2/3rds the page you will find the MFC 420 CN Click that, than click downloads. The drivers , utilities and firmware for the MFC are all there.

the brother printer is not a good brand i also have a brother mfc 3220cn and it gives the same problem, what you have to is unplug the machine and let it stand for about 2 days take out the cartridges and clean the printing with air replace back them and plug in.that should remedy your problem.i urge on you never to buy brother printers.if you buy them get a bottle of phensic along with it.good luck my brother.
