Printer Cartridge problem

Replaced printer cartridge. Printer keeps telling me that there is no cartridge installed. Tried several times. I notice several other people at this site have had the same problem, but see no solution given.

I'm having the same problem. I called Brothers 3 times. I had use generic cartridges the first time I replaced them and they seemed to work fine for 4 months, then in the middle of printing it stopped on the 2nd page and said empty black so I replaced it and it starting sauying no cartridge, low yellow, low magnt and low cyna. I keep replacements on hand so I replaced them all (generic type) Still didn't work The first tech person said to buy a geniune Brothers black, I did and still didn't work. I called that night and the 2nd tech said I needed to replace them all with geniuine Brothers colors. I did, still the same error no cartridge then ibk black empty. The 3rd tech said I needed to take it into the nearest service center that covers warrenty repairs. The tech said it it is mechanical then it will be covered under my warrenty if not I must pay for it. I called the repair center they are out of town at a seminar until next Monday. I have a feeling I've wasted all this $$ on two sets of ink cartridges and will end up paying to have my MFC 3360C repaired. Which probably will cost more than I paid for it. This sucks. Sorry to sound so negative. Frustration does that. :O(

Call Brother on 02 8875 6000. They talked us through checking the ink management. We never use colour but they dry up. One of our colours had dried up which meant that the Multi Function Centre kept telling us that no cartridge had been installed, even though we had just put in a new black cartridge. The machine only told us originally that the black was empty (which is the one we replaced), but when going through the ink management with the Brother technician it showed that the blue also needed replacing. This apparently is what was causing the error message. So I'm off to buy a new blue cartridge - hopefully this works. So give Brother a call on the above number.

No, I haven't solved the problem. That's why I hoped that someone else had, and might be willing to share.

The magenta isn't printing correctly, and the printer keeps telling me to remove tape from the magenta cartridge. There isn't any tape on it. I've tried resetting it several times.

Its sounds as though the printer isnt picking up the cartridges properly, try removing it and cleaning the contacts on both the cartridge and the printer

Replaced black ink cartridge and printer keeps asking to replace

The message that persists in saying to "replace black cartridge" could be due to a defective cartridge chip. The chip maintains counts and tells the printer when a new cartridge is installed. If you cartridge is remanufactured, they may have neglected to install a new chip.

Regarding the new fuser not working, I'll have to get back to you on that.

Brother MFC-3360C cyan ink cartridge replace ment

On the front of the cartridge there is a sight tube for the ink, the fax shines a light through this tube to detect the ink.
I wraped a piece of paper around the tube to block the light beam on all the cartridges.
I dont need a processer to tell me if the machine is out of ink, I can work thay out when it stops printing!!
Now tell me you are out of ink you peice of electronic ****.
