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!

SOURCE: MFC does not recognise the new black ink cartridge.

Disconnect power supply and USB lead (leave disconnected for 10 min). Repeat this for each colour that is not working and hey presto the LCD readout will revert to normal and you will be able to print again. Happy Christmas! Hope this works for you (worked for me)

SOURCE: How to check ink level on brother MFC-9440CN?

Hello,
Run the Brother Control Center. Click Device settings. Click where it says Inklevel.

A simpler way is Start-->All Programs-->Brother--> ...-->Status Monitor.
An icon will lodge itself on the tray (a printer). When icon is clicked on, the inklevels will show.

Hope it helps.

SOURCE: Just replaced ink cartridges on my Brother MFC

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.
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

How do I refill my ink cartridges?


If you bought an ink refill kit, then there should be a bellows with a fine needle tip filled with ink and a rubber stopper. There should have been instructions included with the kit.
If you only bought the bellows and there's no instructions or rubber stopper, then I'm afraid you are missing some pieces. You need more than just the ink to refill the cartridges correctly, or else they will leak all over the inside of the printer.

I have a Brother MFC-240C printer and need to refill my yellow ink cartridge but don't know how to. I have misplaced the instructions that came with the refillable ink bottles. Can anyone help me.


YOU are NOT SUPPOSED to "refill" the actual ink cartridges, but replace them with new ones. If you need to know how to replace this ink cartridge (I have this machine too) you just pop open the front rigth side panel and then pull the little plastic purple lever down in front of the YELLOW cartrdige which is labeled with a Y on the pull down cover in front of it, and pull out the old one to dispose of it, take the cap off the new one and push it in-the direction the arrow on the cartridge is facing until it clicks and the purple plastic piece locks it in, then shut the cover and the machine will do a "cleaning" and then you will be ready to print.

How to refill Brother MFC 420CN ink cartridge?


I wouldn't recommend refilling cartridges anymore. Nowadays printers come with a sensor which tell it which cartridges were used and refilled. Also do not use generic cartridges. Always buy genuine cartridges. Will save you a lot of headache in the long run...Trust me.

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.

Instructions on refilling cartridge for brother LC41CL cartridge


Do mix the ink with some glycerol to prevent clogging!

2ml glycerol (85%-glycerin alc. from drugstore) with 10ml of ink for C/Y/M and shake well (mix) before use. Mix 1,5 ml glycerol with 20ml BK ink.

Simply drill a hole into the brandname (O of brother) on top of the cart. Refill with 12ml for C/Y/M and about 21ml for bk.

You can leave the hole open.

Next time when cart is empty simply open scanner and refill without taking the cart out! ;-)

DO MIX THE INK WITH GLYCEROL!!!

MFC 640CW not refilling with new ink cart.


Unplug printer from power. Wait a minute. Take all carts out. Plug machine to power. mfc demands carts. Reinsert carts (have a look if they all filled with ink!!). If asked press 2 (No change) despite you use a new cart press 1 Yes cart changed.

Should work!
