My problem is that the printer is not recognising that the cartridge in tells me "no cartridge" and also "ink empty", i have put 2 brand new cartridges in and it still...

reset the waste ink counter, put black tape on critical ridge of all cartridges and refilled them. All showed full. All was well for 2 sheets, then all 4 cartridges are showing as near empty on LCD also on software monitor program. Whether or not they are near empty, how does the printer know with the light beam blocked? I have made filling holes on each cartridge (sealed with rubber plugs) so that I can refill without removing them. Doing this is not going to change the readout.
My expert TIP: Buy a new printer. Printers today are as just as expensive as a set of printer inks. Printers have heads and they get dirty over time and might need replacement, which is all the more expensive. Try buying ink advantage printers, they DO indeed save money. Or try looking for somebody who knows how to modify your printer to a CIS (Continuous Ink Supply) printer.

Refilled black cartridge put back but dcp115 tells me to reinstal

there is a chip inside the cartridge that the printer firmware now failed to detect it. It is usually happen with refilled cartridge.

Try to find in the web "DCP 115 Reseter Software"
You can try Printer Resetter Software before you replace with the new original one (its the last option)

Hi, my Brother DCP-115C Brother printer keeps telling me my black ink is empty despite putting brand new cartridges in, can you offer any help. Thanks.

Black electrical tape is the answer and it’s because the tape is BLACK. Even if u put black tape on an empty cartage the printer will still try to print.

The tape goes on the side of the cartage that faces the back of the printer (where the sensor must be).

Says, it want new ink (three colours)

My printer always said the same thing. Unfortunately it seems to only work in black when the colours are full.

Buy "compatible" or "alternative" cartridges, they are cheap and cleaner than refilling the cartridges by yourself.
