WARNING. Do not get your ink cartridges filled at any place that does not have ink made specifically for your printer. Different inks dry at different rates. Your printer will expect a very specific rate of drying and if it does not receive it, it will likely eventually clog. I have a Brother MFC 210c and i refilled my cartridges several times before i encountered any problems. It worked for over a year actually, but now the black ink is insanely clogged. Apparently the cleaning button does nothing but push more ink through, so if you are not using the proper ink or have an ink clog, using the cleaning button will only block it further. Also as Brother printheads are apparently not on the ink cartridge itself, it is difficult to get to the printhead to clean it. In my situation this will likely lead to my printer getting trashed, though I have not given up yet. The link the guy above left may very well work, but do not do as i have done and get ink that is not made especially for your printer. It is a giant hassle that will likely lead to all the money you spent on your printer going down the drain.

Courtesy of misterinkjet, here is the link to the website that actually sells ink refill kits and you can use ink refills on your Brother All in one. It can be used for each seperate color and also Black. Hope this helps.

I am having problem on setup of the fax I have a line for fax


The orignal ink cartridges supplied with these machines are fairly low capacity. You can get XL versions which contain 2-3 times as much ink. If you are using refilled cartridges, you may find the Fax module can not tolerate refills. There is a way to reset the machine to ignore the ink level counter for the printer/copier functions, but the Fax module addresses the cartridges diferently for some reason.

Cannot send and receive fax after refilling PG-40


I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I think that the fax not printing is Canon's new approach to kick out refills from their all in one machines. We cannot reset the ink level indicators on these cartridges and if people can no longer print faxes if their ink says it's low, then they can never use refills if they want to use their fax machine. I think it is also a way for Canon to make more money on their ink sales by making consumers buy new ink before theirs runs out. As far as I know there is no way to fix this problem.

Ink cartridge refill


You can't refill these cartridges yourself. Sure you can get ink and inject it in, but your printer remembers the serial number of each cartridge and how many pages you've printed with it. Because it remembers this information it turns off the cartridge electronics to prevent the use of refills. I would try to get refills for the black but not the color cartridge. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and we have a high return rate on the color cartridges. It seems the printers are extremely finicky about color refills. If you get a black refill and your printer won't print with it, exchange it for another one because you happened to get a cartridge with the same serial number as the last one you had. I recommend Cartridge World refills, then Office Depot brand refills.

My machine keeps saying No cartridage Open scanner cover then reinstall ink cartridage


This can sometimes happen when a cartridge becomes completely empty (but this shouldn't happen with original Brother ink carts).
Are you using Originals or compatable/refills etc?

If the ink carts all seem ok:

Take out all the ink carts and close cover.
Switch off power and wait a few seconds.
Switch power back on.
Machine will prompt you to install each cart.
Do this individually untill all carts are back in machine.

If this does not solve the problem (and you are 100% the ink carts are not faulty) the machine requires engineer to repair.

Cartridge? problem


If you are using or have used third party generic ink cartridges or refilled ink cartridges, the Cartridge Sensor printed circuit board may have been damaged. We have found that some third party generic ink cartridges leak onto the ink cartridge sensor circuit board causing an electrical short of the ink cartridge sensors. The damage from the leaked ink results in the machine displaying NO CARTRIDGE because the machine will no longer recognize the installed ink cartridge(s). Genuine Brother ink cartridges do not cause this issue because of the unique design developed to fit specifically in the Brother products. As long as a Brother cartridge has not been refilled, the Brother cartridge will not leak.

REFILL INK


Is this a question about refill ink? With Brother and Canon original inks, they use a special type of ultraviolet ink for their ink level sensors to detect. I wouldn't recommend using anything but the original because of shortened printhead life. I have had many repair requests because of aftermarket inks....
