Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I replaced it twice with new cartridges. It asks if I replaced cartridge; I answered "yes", and then I get a "no cartridge" message.
There is a little circuit board on the cartridge itself. You might see a bunch of gold dots or a circuit board with gold pads. More than likely inside the printer the pins that touch the cartridge circuit board are dirty or something has fallen on top like paper. This is only the case with an OEM cartridge, if you bought an aftermarket cartridge or had it refilled then the chip might not be programmed and would also say "no cartridge".

I guess you d used generic ink carts?!
If yes, the cart holder needs replacement due to ink that has stained the led control. The ink has made a short circuit. The error can only be deleted by replacing the whole cart holder!

Something that has worked for some Brother owners to get cartridges recognised.
1. With your MFC powered up, open it up and remove the cartridge you are having a problem with, then close the MFC, leaving it powered up. It should report that there is no cartridge in the machine.
Still with the MFC powered up, open it up and reinsert the ink cartridge, then close the MFC. It should either ask if you have replaced a cartridge or go into its cleaning mode.
Answer "yes" to "have you replaced cartridge?" and it should either "print" or "clean" and then "print".

Yes, you can cut a small piece of electrical tape and place it over the window on the inside edge of the cartridge. it has to wrap around the window tightly.

On the front of the cartridge there is a sight tube for the ink, the fax shines a light through this tube to detect the ink.
I wraped a piece of paper around the tube to block the light beam on all the cartridges.
I dont need a processer to tell me if the machine is out of ink, I can work thay out when it stops printing!!
Now tell me you are out of ink you peice of electronic ****.
