I´ve a Brother 5440 cn i replace the cartiges but the message low ink doesn´t go off and when i tilt the lever to release the cartridges is as if i did nothing i guess before the printer showed messages on the steps on the replacing process
Can anyone help me with this??
Thank you all for the help provided
Maybe you can try reinstalling the driver or if the cartridge was bought from 3rd party, you might want to buy one directly from the manufacturer.

If the LCD displays "No Cartridge", there is a possibility that ink cartridges other than ones you replaced are empty. Follow steps below to check the ink volume. If there are empty ink cartridges, please replace them.
If the message "No Cartridge" does not disappear, unplug the machine from the AC power outlet and wait approximately 10 seconds, and then plug it back in. If the date and time appear on the display, the issue is resolved.

new one. (For example,

new cartridge you installed, press 1
(Yes) to automatically reset the ink dot
counter for that color. If the ink cartridge
you installed is not a brand new one, be
