I know this is a dumb question but did you remove the tape off he bottom of the ink cartridge? Also sometimes if you are using a generic ink cartridge the machine may not recognize it. Make sure the cartridge is seated in properly and that it is in the correct location. (not color spot). Hope this helps. John

First make sure that you are using Brother ink and not a generic or a refill their units are very sensitive. Follow these step first.

Unplug the machine from the AC outlet, wait approximately 10 seconds and then plug it back in. If the date and time appear on the display the issue should be resolved.

Is the unit saying NO Cartridge or is saying Ink Empty? Ink empty indicates one or more ink cartridges are empty. Change the cartridge that the LCD indicates.

If No Cartridge is on the display. One or more the cartridges is not installed properly or the vacuum seal has been broken. If you are using a brand that is not Brother this may be the case. Air may have been introduced into the ink supply tubes, if you have had the cartridges out for extended amount of time or if you have put the ink cartridge on its side. you may have to try a new set of cartridges.

First remove the Black cartridge, The LCD should prompt you to install black.

Reinstall the black cartidge Press down Firmly on the top of the cartridge until it is fully seated. Push the white plastic hook towards the cartridge to verify it is fully latched over the top edge of the cartridge. Repeat this step for each of colors. Make sure you put the cartridges in order that the LCD prompts you.Close the top cover. The unit should automatic ly start cleaning.

If no cartridge continues you may want to check with Brother for warranty options.

Hello ,

Start by opening your ink cover and read the LCD screen; this will alert you as to which ink cartridge is not being recognized; make sure the cartridge that it is telling you is empty has been changed.

If the unit is still not recognizing the cartridge you have changed, follow the steps below.

  1. Unplug the power cord for the printer unit.
  2. Open the ink cartridge cover and remove all ink cartridges.
  3. Close the ink cartridge cover.
  4. Plug the power cord back in.
  5. Reinstall the ink cartridges.

Thank you,

Pat

I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

INK CARTRIDGES ALL NEW. SAYING THEY ARE EMPTY


Hi, i think during the process of changing the cartridges, the top lid on the ink cartridge that clips or keys the cartridge down inside the printer has been broken and needs to be replaced.

I suggest you get a technician to help get a replacement for this. With this your printer should be in other.

HP6180 Printer. I keep getting an error message, Ink cartridge em


Hi,

some cartridges are charged up ( have a chip fitted to them )
If the chip is not charged to tell the printer it,s full of ink. this will cause the problem.
have you tried. unplugging the printer from the mains. then powering it back up.
also try using the printers own software to add new cartridges et,c.
you could also try re-installing the printers drivers/software if you have it,s instalation disk.

Canon iP4200 thinks it has two yellow ink catridges installed


I have had this happen a couple of times to me with a few cartridges so if you can be sure it's just the black that has changed then I'd contact your retailer and request a replacement under warranty.

The only other way to solve this is by process of elimination using some other cartridges. If you know of someone else with a similar printer model that uses the same cartridges then perhaps ask nicely :)

I just bought a mfc240.lcd keeps telling me to install ink cartridges.it came with ink already installed so i reinstalled them.keeps telling me no cartridge or install yellow wayne


Mine has started giving me the "install ink cartridge" message after a year or so. I squirted some freon-based solvent on the little sensor board that the ink cartridges slide into, and it has resumed working. You can see this little sensor board inside the ink-cartridge "garage"; it's the horizontal printed-circuir board with the 4 black sensors on it. Try a blast of air before you try the liquid solvent; I think these little sensors just get paper dust or ink spray on them and stop sensing the cartidge insertion...

DELLA 940 DOES NOT PRINT


Hi there Error 50c

Regarding the Dell A940 "Error 50c"....the user guide doesn't seem to mention "Error 50c". They do, however, mention a "Cartridge Error" on page 52 of the manual. They claim this means that the printer has detected a short circuit (fuse/resister) in the cartridge. As you may or may not have noticed in the manual, this is what they recommend doing about it:

1) Press Power to turn the printer off.

2) Lift the printer cover/lid (scanner unit) until the scanner support holds it open.

3) Turn the printer on.
The ink cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position unless the printer is busy.

4) Remove the color ink cartridge.

5) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.
If the error message displays again, replace the black cartridge with a new black cartridge.

If the error message does not display, repeat steps 1–3 and then go to step 6.

6) Reinstall the color cartridge and remove the black ink cartridge.

7) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.

If the error message displays again, replace the color cartridge with a new
color cartridge.
If there is no error message (indicated by flashing lights), repeat steps 1–3 and then reinstall both ink cartridges.
8) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.

If you get the error message again, while both cartridges are installed, replace both of the cartridges.

Basically, what they want you to determine is,....if the short circuit is with the "black ink" cartridge or the "color ink" cartridge and then replace the cartridge that has the problem.

You may have to buy a new cartrige.
Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.
