Question about Brother MFCJ6510DW AllInOne Inkjet Printer

Open Question

My Brother MFC-J6510dw won't print because of low ink.

Ink cartridge is still 1/3 full. Looks like no way to override like on previous printers (ie. black tape). I tried tape over the cartridge window and get the message that it can't sense the cartridge at all. Can anyone help?

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.

SOURCE: Brother Printer Cannot Print in Black

This could be because of several probs: 1. The ink cart is not original and wont let the ink flow, because the valve is not open. 2. There might be air bubbles within the capillaries. 3. The ink is not genuine ink and has pigments in it. Solution: see here, too: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/faq/faq_top.htm?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=dcp110c_us Insert another ink cart. Use, if possible, the genuine ink cart from brother. Do the cleaning cycle twice. This will extract the air bubbles out of the caps after the second time. If you dont have any success the printhead is clogged and cant be cleaned anymore!

I guess you d used generic ink carts?!
If yes, the cart holder needs replacement due to ink that has stained the led control. The ink has made a short circuit. The error can only be deleted by replacing the whole cart holder!

On your printer take a look on the "ink management button"press it then look for cleaning using the arrows up and down then press ok or set or what ever the command the printer will display just try to perform head cleaning.try for several times lets say 4x don't clean too much it might ruin all other color if it has no changes try to bring it to a service center,they can soak it to a chemical solution,the head is clog.

Won`t recognize new ink cartridges. Still insists black is empty, other colors low, although all have been replaced. Any way to reset or override? Thanks


Hi there
There are only a few steps you need to do to reset a Brother printer ink cartridge and once you do it, you will be up and printing in no time. There are actually two things that a Brother printer uses to detect ink and you can manipulate one or the other.
Instructions
Things You'll Need: · Black electrical tape, masking tape or duct tape
1. Step 1
Identify the printer If your printer uses memory, you can tell which printer you have by looking at where the cartridge goes in, if you see two "eyes" and a part of the cartridge goes in between them, follow Step 3. Otherwise, continue with Step 2.
2. Step 2
Clear the memory by taking the cartridge out and unplugging the unit for 30 seconds. Then, plug it back in and put back in the cartridge. You may need to do this five times, as the memory holds the last five cartridges.
3. Step 3
If the Brother printer has "eyes" where the cartridge goes, you will need to block in between them with a piece of tape so that it thinks the cartridge is always full. Simply put a piece of tape on the piece of the cartridge that goes in between the eyes to block the path of the infrared beam

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Empty Ink Cartrage message when cartrage still has a lot of ink.


I'm going to provide you a solution worth many dollars now you can use your left over half filled cartidges and in future also use the cartridges to the extreme.
1. Go to menu and select manual override for toner cartridges and then only replace toner when the print quality starts to suffer. This can save you thousands of dollars over the life of this fine printer.
2. download and read this
