I use generic cartridges all the time in my brother printers with no problem. better to pay $2 per cartridge than whatever the brother brand ones cost!

How do I get my printer to acknowledge the new "M" ink cartridges?


make sure you remove the yellow sticker from the cartridge. insert cartridge till it clicks and the lever goes into the up position. close door. if it doesn't detect it there is something wrong with the printer.

If that doesn't work there is a mant mode that your printer can go into for field techs to reset counters and other advanced features. Here is a link to the service manual for your printer. The Menu you want to get into is called maintenance mode and is accessible by unplugging the printer and holding a button and reapplying power. Here is the PDF with the instructions for working on your printer.

Good luck. It will look intimidating but no worries it isn't like the printer is working now so you can't get much worse.

Clean print heads brother MFC J425W


This is what I figured out to get the printing back to normal.

Open up the printer so you are looking at the place where the print heads go back and forth, you will also see the paper feeder. In the back left corner is where the ink is dispensed. There was build up on mine. As usual grab a 10 or so q-tips and some rubbing alcohol and clean the build up of goopy ink.

You won't ever get it completely clean because more ink will keep dispensing. Close it up and run a test print again.

My Brother LC61, bought in Nov.2010, won't print black. Recently replaced black ink along with all color inks...replaced black ink again when it quit printing...still won't work. Machine whirs...


This is common problem with Brother Printers. I am going to assume you are using Non-Brother branded ink cartridges. Brother cartridges have a cleanser in the ink that most generic cartridges don't have. This in turn causes the jets to clog and not allow ink to pass through them. The fix is to go buy a couple of Brother cartridges and do a cleaning with those cartridges. You may spend some money doing this as a cleaning wastes a lot of ink, but it will clean the injection lines and fix the printer. You could also consider buying a new printer. I know this is not the answer you were looking for, but it is the true answer. I just bought a new printer due to this fact.

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Won`t recognize new ink cartridges. Still insists black is empty, other colors low, although all have been replaced. Any way to reset or override? Thanks


Hi there
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.
Instructions
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.

No cartridge the printer say. i put new cartridge in


It mean that the black cartridge is not recognised. It the black cart is original or compatible? Some printer won't recognise cartridge, if the black and colour is not same type. Try to install the black only. Is it recognised?
