    I put generic (4inkjets.com) cartridges in my MFC240C, and it won't recognize the change. It doesn't seem to see that the cartridges have been pulled out, and then ask me if the cart. is 'new' when I either push them back in or actually change them. Now the black, which is not Low but Empty, does not see the new cartridge at all, and claims the black cart. is not in the slot.

I'll bet you're using cheap generic ink, after having used real Brother ink cartridges. It sees and it knows the ink is generic (apparently by measuring the electrical resistance of the ink). I'm in the midst of the same issue and am going to try using real Brother cartridges to see if the problem goes away.

I had the same problem, so I purchased a new MFC-685cw printer. The new printer comes with documentation that cautions against using 3rd party ink cartriges. In this document it shows photos of the sensor PC board contaminated with Ink. The Ink may be relatively low resistance so this board could be toast. I put Brother ink cartriges back in my machine and it did not work again, ever.

Epson Stylus TX400. Refuses to accept either compatable or refilled cartridges?


Epson TX400 is so sensitive in terms of ink cartridges, you can only replace a refilled ink cartridge in this type of printer if the cartridge has an automatic ink reseter chip. When you replace a cartridge in your printer, it will automatically register the ink level in the chip. So you need an ink reseter chip to replace a new refilled cartridge.

How do I change the toner?


The Fax-2480c does not use toner cartridges.
This is an inkjet and so uses ink cartridges.

There are 4 cartridges, black, yellow, cyan (blue) and magenta (red). If any of these cartridges are empty, you need replace them.

This machine takes LC-51 cartridges.
You're probably out of warranty so jsut get refills... it's cheaper

I have a Lexmark X125 printer. I just bought new ink cartridges because I ran out of ink. I followed the directions on the printer to install the ink cartridges and the printer keeps flashing the words...


Remove the cartridges and close the lid. Allow the system to try to calibrate and complain. Open the lid. Check the cartridge bottoms to make sure you removed the plastic cover on the jet heads.
Replace the cartridges and make sure they clip. Close the lid to finish.

if this does not solve it. Remove the cartridges and then unplug the unit from the power. hold the power button down for 10 seconds then give 20 seconds more. this will clear all power. Place the new cartridges in and close the lid. power the unit on and test for success

Ink cartridge


Using some switch cleaner solvent, gently clean the contacts on the cartridge carriage, and also if you have any, use some inkjet cleaner to clean the nozzle where the cartridge sits, this should clean the mechanism sufficiently to allow the printer to detect the cartridge.

Epson Stylus C86 Printer Ink Refill


The chip that is located on the cartridge has to be reset also. You can take it to a ink cartridge replacement store. They will reset the chip when they refill the ink, however, Epson doesn't recommend this of course. It is cheaper this way.
