If problem is what I think it is (that is if you cleaned whole thing and it is connected proprely), you have only one option. To buy at least three cartridges...problem is due a small trick made by HP. Printer remembers at least two cartridge serial numbers, and then wont accept refilled ones. But if you first stick one, then the other, and on the end the third one(only this one should be really full) it should reset printer and it should foul it to accept it. But on some printers it needs up to five cartridges! What a waste of money :( Anyway, hope this helps...

OK.. I agree that your problem is with the flag gear. However, there is a specific location in which it needs to be situated. The purpose of the flag gear is to trip a reset actuator on the left side of the printer. The correct position of the flag gear needs to be set so the reset actuator is depressed 3/4 of the way AND where the flag gear moves out of the way once this is done. If the flag gear is moved all the way forward, you run a risk of the gear mechanism inside not rotating it out of the way...which could leave you with a 'no cartridge installed' message. When the manufacturer of the toner cartridge made this unit, they decided to put a mark on the side to, evidently, let the assembly team know where to set the flag gear. Great for us :) On the outside plastic piece that you have to remove to get to the flag gear, you will see a diagonal line and a view window. When you rotate the flag gear, you will eventually see a portion of the white gear in that view window. Line up the white gear portion with the bottom of the diagonal line (typically two gear teeth), and you're done. Assemble and run!

Trust me, this is the BEST way and the EASIEST way to refill black and color LC61 or LC65 inkjet cartridge from Brother. See the pictures
1. cut the plastic part (see picture). You can use a utility knife or a steak knife (very easy to do)
2. make a hole on the left or right side (NOT in the midle) and do it straight and don't go deep (see picture)
3. poor the ink with your refill kit and do it straight and don't go deep because the inner side of the cartrigde is made of cheap plastic (like a plastic bag) and you don't want to perforate it
4. put your plug, tape, hot glue or what ever you have to seal the hole.
5. put the cartrigde back in your printer, do a print test and that's it !!!

Hi there you can refill Brother cartidges, like other printers it will not have it sorry.
This is the only way you can trick it.
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.
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.

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.
