My Brother MFC-685CW Printer Wireless doesn't recognise a new colour cartridge despite having cleaned the printer head. It also is not recognised by the PC despite reloading it. Help!! Troubleshooter...

If the message "NO CARTRIDGE" remains on the LCD after you have installed the ink cartridge(s), it is possible another ink cartridge is empty and needs to be replaced or one or more of the cartridges are not installed properly. Complete the following steps:
  1. Unplug the machine from the AC power outlet, wait approximately 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

    1a. If the display continues to show NO CARTRIDGE, verify the cartridges are installed properly by uninstalling and reinstalling all four ink cartridges. Follow Steps 2a through 2f.

    1b. If "INK EMPTY XXXXX" (Xs = color, i.e. INK EMPTY CYAN) is displayed on the LCD, the specified ink cartridge is empty and needs to be replaced. Follow Steps 2a through 2f.

  2. To resolve an INK EMPTY message or to confirm the ink cartridges are installed properly, complete the following steps:

    2a. Open the ink cartridge cover. Pull the lock release lever(s) down and take out the ink cartridge(s). While you have the ink cartridge(s) out of the machine, verify the cartridge(s) are genuine Brother supplies with the Brother logo embossed into the side of cartridge.


    2b. Reinstall the ink cartridge(s). Lift and push the lock release lever(s) until it clicks into place and close the ink cartridge cover.


    2c. The LCD may then display:

    Did you change xxxxxx? Yes No.

    for the color(s) that was replaced. If this message appears, BE SURE to follow the instructions on the LCD to correctly select Yes or No. Select Yes if you installed a new cartridge(s) to automatically reset the ink dot counter for that color. Select No if you did not install a NEW ink cartridge(s).

    2d. After all the correct selections are made, the machine will then enter a cleaning cycle.

    2e.If the display again shows INK EMPTY XXXX, go back to Step 2 and follow the instructions to install a NEW ink cartridge.

    2f.If the machine did not enter a cleaning cycle and the display continues to show NO CARTRIDGE after reinstalling new genuine Brother ink cartridges, your machine may require service.
If your computer is not recognizing the printer you should uninstall and reload the drivers. You might consider downloading a new driver for your operating system from this site:

I recommend bookmarking thihs site for future reference.

I hope this is helpful. :)

Hello there:
what this is refering to is that the cartridge is either not the right one for the printer or the device is having a problem with that cartridge i would remove the cartridge and verify that it is the right one that goes in their and also since youare having the cartridge out i would clean out the contact area to get rid of the old ink that may be sitting on the contact areas ok
best regards Michael

Replacing Colour Cartridge

Most likely dirty connections. Try cleaning the print cartridge, and the contacts inside of the printer with a swab of alcohol. The cartridge, and printer need to communicate properly, and sometimes a fingerprint or ink can interfere. (Yes I know I don't spell very well, sorry)
