Question about Brother MFC-640CW All-In-One InkJet Printer
My MFC 640CW is not refilling with new ink cart. im putting in. The machine keeps saying "ink empty cyan replace ink". I've replaced the orig carts with bought ones from the store for a number of months and have never had a problem.
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.

This worked on my MFC-640CW with the error "No cartridge, Install Cyan."
The problem occurred after moving the printer. All ink cartridges were untouched.
The problem followed the Cyan cartridge if it was in the Yellow or Magenta slot.

Well, I have the same problem and I called to get advise and ran all the test and what the problem was is I did not buy new ink insted I refilled them with an ink refill kit and well the ink is not the same and can clog it up and you are going to have to send it off to get it fixed more than likely a new printer head or maybe it just needs cleaned that is what the guy told me on the phone that fixes them for a living and is certified through brother to fix their printers so if you bought a refill kit or did not use the brother ink then that is the problem

No, are you sure that another ink is not empty, power off remove all carts turn on, insert carts machine should ask if new cart were installed answer yes to any that are new, use brother carts.
Inks are deemed empty even when a little is left it must be this way to avoid air getting in lines.

Compatible carts do make a lot of trouble. One point is the draining! The ink has flown into the cart assy and beyond that to the bottom of the printer. As long as you can print without problems you dont have to do anything. If the test pages wont show the correct color you have to open the printer and to clean the assy and the bottom.
Do use original ink carts though these wont drain and give correct info to printer. You can very simple refill them with dye ink. Dye ink only!!!
