How To Refill?

Hey everyone, need some help here. I've refilled other cartridges before, however I have another printer I'm using Brother MFC 210C and I'm wondering if there is any refilling kit for it? I guess the main thing I need is the syringe. The one I have used for all other cartridges is a thin pointy one, however it doesn't seem to work with these brother cartidges.. maybe someone can point me to some tutorial or place where I can buy a kit.. I've looked for a while now.. and can't find anything releated..=(

Re: How To Refill?

Harry, you can use every DYE ink for brother printers. DO NOT use pigmented ink due to clogged filters inside the printhead!!!! The carts for mfc210 are filled with 20ml for BK and 11ml for C/Y/M. I use to refill 20ml only ink for bk and 10ml ink + 1ml printhead cleaner for C/Y/M. See here how to do that (LC900 refill): Refillen (Simply drill a hole into the brother brandname and leave it open!) I use a 20ml syringe and 3 12(10+2)ml syringes from the drugstore (ask your doc! It may be cheaper ;-)

I have also problem with the magenta

Check your ink cartridge if they are properly installed.

Check your cartridge if they are empty.

Make sure you are using original cartridge and not just a refill cartridge.

If still nothing happens replace your cartridge.

I use the refill ink cart, its still shown empty

reefing a ink cartridge is some time much complicate more than you think. there is a programable chip inside ink cartridge. after refill you have to reset that chip also. to reset the chip you have to build small hardware to communicate with that chip. also simple software to reset the chip. :) send me the printer model number you want to fill and cartridge number. i'll show you the steps you have to follow.

Oh brother

I don't think there is a reset procedure for resetting MFC 3240c cartridges.
Professional refill facilities use a code reset device on cartridges.
Users that want to refill their own cartridges often use a piece of cellotape or plastic bag to cover cartridge sensor. This can damage printers head if ink goes too low and printer keeps printing.
My suggestion: stay away from troubles and buy original cartridges.

I've used refillabl ink.

You can only use refillable once and sometimes not at all. The gasket on the cartridge has to fit snug or the printer won't recognize that you have put one in. Buy a new cartridge and that should fix the problem. I had the same problem.

Brother mfc210c

two ways to refill lc41:

drill a 2 mm hole into the brandname (e.g. O of brother ) on top of the cart. You can leave the hole open and leave the carts in the printer in future for further refilling ;-)

The cart can be refilled by inserting a syringe without a needle into the ink Outlet(!) at the bottom, too. Carefully press a 12ml for C/Y/M and ca. 15ml - 18ml for BK into the carts.

Do use DYE-ink only!
Important: You must mix the dye-ink with some 85%-glycerin alc. to keep the print head nozzels alive = 10ml ink with 2ml glycerin alc (drugstore).
For BK: 15ml ink + 1,5ml glycerin alc!

How to refill the cartridge of brother MFC240c

Hey its very simple, you'll need a syringe and an exacto knife. You just need to pop the case in half use the exacto knife to cut the seem very carfully and to pry the cartridge apart carfully. On the back of the cartridge you'll see a little indintation were it was filled in the factory just fill the cartridge with a syringe push in the indintation fill cartridge remember to leave a little air in there and seal the hole up so it's air tight again this can be done by using a little hot glue to seal the hole. I hope I was helpful. As well you can by a continous ink system for the brother 240c which is pretty need too

How can I refill my ink cartridges myself?

Be brave and have a go, buy the correct ink refill for your selection of cartridges, the packaging on the refill kits will tell you if your printer is included. Once you find one for yours, instructions come with it. I think your cartridges have plastic ones don't they? Make sure when you fill with syringe you follow instructions very closely to avoid air bubbles and always run a clean when you put it back in. I refill all the time, and each time i refill (i get 7-8 refills each cartridge now the way i do it) i am saving $80.00 both cartridges. This can be most of a thousand dollars a year for me.
