I wouldn't recommend refilling cartridges anymore. Nowadays printers come with a sensor which tell it which cartridges were used and refilled. Also do not use generic cartridges. Always buy genuine cartridges. Will save you a lot of headache in the long run...Trust me.

Brother MFC-420CN keeps showing Unable to Print w full ink


I often have the same problem - The inks being put into the printer are seated very sensitively. The lever holding them in may be also acting as a pressure sensitive switch because when I wiggle it a little, the printer usually starts working again! Make sure the cartridges are pressed STRAIGHT DOWN, wiggle them and wiggle the plastic pressure lever. (I do not know what else to call it!) and I hope yours works again. It is a great little printer, but this is really annoying! Good luck!
BTW, if your inks are RE-FILLED, that may be your problem. It seems they are made to NOT be refilled. To avoid this problem, do not wait till they are empty to refill them. Check them monthly (depends on usage) and when they get 1/2 way, refill then. Do NOT put the hypodermic refilling tube in deeper than necessary to refill. I use a heated nail to make my hole in the plastic, going ONLY in as far as necessary to make the hole, and then I cover it with scotch tape. Then I wash off my hands with Lava soap! (Haven't mastered the knack of not getting the ink on myself, yet!)

Just replaced ink cartridges on my Brother MFC


Hi there you can refill Brother cartidges, like other printers it will not have it sorry.

This is the only way you can trick it.

There are only a few steps you need to do to reset a Brother printer ink cartridge and once you do it, you will be up and printing in no time. There are actually two things that a Brother printer uses to detect ink and you can manipulate one or the other.
Instructions
Things You'll Need: · Black electrical tape, masking tape or duct tape
1. Step 1
Identify the printer If your printer uses memory, you can tell which printer you have by looking at where the cartridge goes in, if you see two "eyes" and a part of the cartridge goes in between them, follow Step 3. Otherwise, continue with Step 2.
2. Step 2
Clear the memory by taking the cartridge out and unplugging the unit for 30 seconds. Then, plug it back in and put back in the cartridge. You may need to do this five times, as the memory holds the last five cartridges.
3. Step 3
If the Brother printer has "eyes" where the cartridge goes, you will need to block in between them with a piece of tape so that it thinks the cartridge is always full. Simply put a piece of tape on the piece of the cartridge that goes in between the eyes to block the path of the infrared beam

Have you refilled the cartridges? If so you have to block up the hole made to refill them.

How to Override Ink Level Gauge When Using Refilled Cartridges


Above link great.
If you have a newer print cartridge cart, look for the little window. I put a sticker over the little window on the Brother (innobella) LC38 cartridge cart and it worked great :)
Despite finding a fix for this problem, I think this is a rip off setting on the brother printers and I will never buy another Brother printer for this reason.

Ink Leaks


Richard,

I dont understand "inverting". Do you mean turning the machine around (180 degree) to see the bottom of the machine?

Anyway, inkjets used to stain after a while. This is because of serveral reasons: the ink absorber felt is getting wet due to the cleaning cycles, some ink will splash from the printhead, ink will flow back from ph to cart etc.

Do you refilled the original carts or do you use generic carts? The latter one do NOT keep the ink inside the cart when turing the machine to bottom (e.g. for Postal sending) due to diffrent construction.

You should use original carts for refill. Make sure the plastic support secures the carts.
Only original carts wont leak!

"no catridge" not true


Drill a 2 - 3 mm hole into the brother label upon the carts. Refill the cart which the printers display shows EMPTY. For color C/Y/M refill a 12ml and for black a 20ml ink. Use only dye ink! See pictures how to do that: http://www.hstt.net/refill-faq/brother.html#LC-900 Refillen

Error message "no cartridge" won't go away on my brother mfc 420cn printer


Sorry i couldn't help on the day you nedded it. Do not be afraid to refill, it's easy once you have a go, all instructions come with the refill kits, and they instuct on your specific printer too. Follow it to the T and you can refil one colour or all, and no waste. Once refilled, replace it, reset ink levels, and try printing again. Good luck.
