Remove the ink jet cartridges and clean them with a moist paper towel.

The black one will have to be replaced. If there dried I wouldn't refill them because chances are the nozzles are clogged and they won't work on a refill.

Risograph. Why does it indicate empty ink bottle when it is a quarter full?


Most inkjet printers don't actually measure the amount of ink in the cart. They estimate the amount of ink based on what you've printed and how many cleaning cycles you're run. They have to estimate "empty" well before it's empty, in case you've used more ink than they expected, so the head doesn't go dry. Also, showing empty makes you buy more ink, and that's where they make their money.

Your print heads most likely need to be cleaned.

When you don't use your ink carts for a while, when you get new ink carts that have been stored in warehouses for a number of months, or when you have refilled a slightly too dry ink cart, the print head nozzles on the bottom of the ink carts get clogged with dried ink. The printer head cleaner menu will not disolve the dried ink. Water will. Try this. Soak the bottom of the clogged ink cart in 1/2 inch of hot water for 15-30 minutes. Blot dry with clean paper towel(you should see the ink color on the towel). Retry.

Ink is not visible on paper


First NEVER raise the tanks of a CISS above the height of the printer otherwise all that is going to happen is that the ink will syphon out and end up getting everywhere.

As you have not used the printer in a long time there wil be dried ink in the print heads 3x head cleaning is nowhere near good enough to clear the blockages.

One thing I would do as you have a set of OEM carts is the following presuming you have the equipment.

Drill a small hole in the top of each cart and extract as much ink as ps=ossible with a syringe (you can put it in the ciss ink tanks) and replace with head cleaning solution. Reseal the ink carts (if clean selotape will do) insert carts and do 5x head clean, leave 24hrs and do 5x head clean again. This will allow the head cleaning solution to get right insine of the print head, soften the dried ink and then flush it through..

A lot of messing about I know but you've just shelled out a few bob for a CISS so it's worth it.

NB

Make sure you keep the CISS carts above the tanks whilst outside of the printer.

I can't get my black ink to print.


Could be the ink dried up. Unusual but happens sometimes. If you shake it does it sound like liquid in it?

If you recently replaced the cartridge, did you remember to take the tape off? (I know, sounds silly, but sometimes it happens.)

In the software, does it register that there's a blank ink cartridge installed?

Just a couple of ideas to get you going. Respond back and I'll work more with you.

Message: "Ink empty black" --won't reset


this could be because of generic ink carts which do not have the size of the original ones. If so put some paperstrip beneath the cart to lift it up a bit.
Anyway, did you tell the printer that you have changed the cart by pressing 1? Look at the display when you insert the cart!

First, wouldn't print black, now won't print magenta- all new cartridges!


Unplug machinepowercord. Open printer and take all carts out. Plug in power. Machine demands carts. Put new one in: Replace with original ink carts!. When asked push 1 (yes New cart). If you have used thirdparty carts, there could be a prob due to construticon or ink quality. In case there is no bk after 3x cleaning cycles anymore, the head is clogged: This happens because the filter in front of the nozzels is clogged by pigmented ink. DO USE ONLY DYE INK for all types of brother inkjet machines!!!

So many models. Does this model have printheads under the ink carts? If so, remove the print head and clean the jets with a damp Bounty paper towel. Fold the towel up a few times and blot the head into it a few times to clean out the dries ink.

Printing Problem


Cleaning cycles use ink. So it's no wonder it got worse, the ink level went down. Are you 100% sure that the black cart is full? they can give a wrong reading on occasion. what makes you think its full? Could be also that you need to replace the head- the part the cart fits into. generally they don't last more than 18 months.] Another possibility is that the black is indeed full, but dry. Put a wet sponge to the nozzle, see if it soaks up a decent amount of ink. Good luck
