Question about Brother DCP 115C All-In-One InkJet Printer
You can try cleaning the contacts (gold or brass in color) with rubbing alcohol or contact cleaning fluid. Also clean the contacts inside the printer. You will need to use a soft cloth to gently clean the contacts, something that won't lean lint inside the printer.
Disconnect power from the printer before starting and allow the printer to completely dry before restoring power.
The printer may have simply failed.

unplug maqchine from power. take all carts out. wait 5 minutes. connect machine to power. insert carts as demanded. give the right answer if machine asks if the carts are changed. machine will do some cleaning.
do you use generic ink? in that case you might have clogged the printhead with wrong ink. The ph cant be cleaned anymore.
nevertheless try this (carts should be nearly full!):
press menue then start mono (blue copy) then fourtimes arrow up. machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4. Machine will display init_all. press start mono. machine will refill tubes and
ph with fresh ink and do some cleaning. after that press 7 then 6 then 3 and start mono. machine will do a powerpurge.
press zero then 9 to do a quality test print. If it cant do the job leave maintenance by pressing 9 then 9. do the test print manually by pressing ink etc.
If you still do not see any colors the ph is clogged and cant be fixed anymore. It has to be replaced.

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!

The usual obvious fix is to buy a new catridge, insert, power off
machine, then switch back on to reset any sensors. But if the circuitry
on the machine itself is faulty it wont fix it.
I used to own an MFC 260C. It had a perfectly good full ink catridge in it, that was working fine, until...it suddenly did not recognise the cartridge anymore.
I pulled the machine apart and found that 2 of the 4 sensors on the cct board at the back of the cartridge housing were loose. These sensors pass light through the exposed part of the cartridge to see if ink is there. So if these are faulty, you will never clear the "No Cartridge" or "Ink Empty..." or "Near Empty Ink ..." messages on the MFC260C and prbably other similar printers in the MFC range.
Why did they fail? Because the soldering on these sensors was poor quality.
I would never buy another Brother machine because of this, also because they design the machine to be totally useless unless all the ink ccartridges are full. Shame on you Brother, and kiss my *** for the $160 pile of junk I bought off you that was only on its second batch of cartridges (ie very little use)
