How to convert a Brother brand printer with a continuous ink?
Hello good day everyone!
Can you help me? I have a brother brand printer but i want to convert it with a continuous ink because the ink is cheaper than the brother's ink which will not print whenever one of the colors is used up..Is it a good idea? please help me.

Hello I am an expert on printers are pretty good Brother.Brother But the ink is running out fast .. I got home Brother MFC-210C. So I took ink and slid ho. . I hate Brother printers!. So I broke down and I saw that there is a color sensor and instead I chose colors I had crouched low and showed that the paper is full of the good? Try it at home if you can.
For best results, use genuine Brother ink only in your printer. I have never had good luck using 3rd party ink nor even refilled cartridges. In fact, I have a room full of printers that met their demise using off brand ink. One of these days, I'm going to clean it out.
You get 1 year warranty from Brother, 90 days on refurbished models, you will need a new printhead which runs over $100.00 with labor on top of that. The serial number has the manuf. date and if you got a good price for the demo model I would call Brother and tell them your problem, and not that it was a demo model.

Cannon printers are notorious for clogged print heads using aftermarket ink. This has happened to me many times before I switched brands. Cannon won't even replace the printer if they find out that you didn't use Cannon ink. Epson and Brother have very good compatibility with aftermarket ink. Kodak are good as well. I recommend these because the cost per page is lowest with these printers AND I use them with great success.
It mean that the black cartridge is not recognised. It the black cart is original or compatible? Some printer won't recognise cartridge, if the black and colour is not same type. Try to install the black only. Is it recognised?
The brother machines require ink in all the cartridges as it is always flushing ink through the heads to "clean" it. This means you must have ink in all cartridges at all times unfortunately or the brother will not work. Even if you could somehow get it to work it could damage your printhead anyway.
I found a solution at another forum. I have the same printer with the same problem. What you need to do is put some electrical tape on the colour cartridges to stop the printer from sensing the ink level. I put tape on the clear plastic ridge on the back end of the cartridge and this allowed me to print from the black ink cartridge even though the colour ones were empty. I used black tape which i think would work best.
I am also going to leave the printer off until i need it so that it doesn't waste the ink by doing random cleaning at all times of the day.
the brother printer is not a good brand i also have a brother mfc 3220cn and it gives the same problem, what you have to is unplug the machine and let it stand for about 2 days take out the cartridges and clean the printing with air replace back them and plug in.that should remedy your problem.i urge on you never to buy brother printers.if you buy them get a bottle of phensic along with it.good luck my brother.
