It is recommended to change the cartidges together, however if one of the cartridges still has ink in it, you do not have to replace them together. The printer may still print with an empty cartirdge but if you are printing something in color it will print without the missing color causing the document to look funny. Hope this helps.

Keeps saying install c


Hello,

When the printer says "install C" it is referring to the Cyan (blue) ink cartridge. If this is not a new cartridge, you might have to replace it. If this is a new cartridge, try following these steps.

1. Unplug the power cable.
2. Remove all 4 ink cartridges.
3. Close the ink cover
4. Plug the power back in.
5. Wait for the machine to warm up and tell you that the ink is empty.
6. Reinsert all 4 ink cartridges.

If you keep getting the same message you should try another cartridge. You can put the yellow cartridge in the blue spot to see if you get the same message. If you get the same message then the machine is broken. If you get a new message then the cyan cartridge needs to be changed.

Thanks,

Pat

Replace yellow ink but machine says no cartridge


Hello,

When you get the "no cartridge" message it's because one of the sensors does not recognize ink in one of the cartridges.

First open the ink cover and read the LCD screen.
The LCD will tell you which cartridge is having a problem. You should change which ever cartridge is telling you there is a problem.

If the LCD says there is a problem witht he yellow (which you just changed) then follow the below steps.

1. Unplug the power to the printer.
2. Remove all 4 ink cartridges.
3. Close the ink cover with all the inks removed.
4. Plug the power back in.
5. When the LCD says "ink empty" you will reinstall all 4 ink cartridges.

Thank you,

Changed the yellow ink and it keeps saying "install yellow"?


1) Turn it off than unplug it wait a minute, plug it back in and turn it back on.
2) Remove and re-install again
3) Push on it and wiggle the cartridge

It has to do with the chip on the back of the cartridge either not making contact or is bad and the cartridge is no good.

Only black cartridge empty, but 3 full color crtrige say empty


Remove the color cartridges. On one end you can see the opaque
ink tank inside the main cart. housing. Cut a piece of black electrical
tape to fit around the three sides visible of the ink tank. Make sure the tape fits inside the housing and adheres to the tank itself. This makes the printer think your ink is always full but you can always tell when you need to refill/replace the ink(right?). Good Luck!

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.
