Re: OEM cart dries out daily

I wonder if the problem might just be the cartridge is not up to the standard of the sharp ones?

My printer is showing waste toner near full???? what do i do to clean it and where is it?

Depending on the type of machine it is it can be a plastic container that can be emptied out or part of the drum unit which may be able to be emptied, or the cartridge might have to be replaced. I might be able to help more if i had more info on the make and model.

Ink cart clip assembly failed

Removed the cartridge and wipe it with a alchohol swab until yuo remove the dry ink residue and try it again. If nothing of this is works maybe the ink is dry inside and you well need to replace the cartdrige.

Brother IntelliFAX 1840C says to change yell even though its full

Your machine did not recognize the new cartridge. Remove the yellow, count to 10 then replace it. The machine will ask "did you change the color yellow?" Select yes by dialing "1" - if after the cleaning cycle "near empty" still appears, you need to contact Brother for repairs. You can safely use the machine until "INK EMPTY" appears.

Will not print anything. Full cartridge.

Remove the cartridge and clean your contacts with isoprophyl alcohol. A cue tip may work best for this. Allow to dry. Make certain the cartridge is secured properly and the locking latch is down.

I put in a new cassette and it just makes a pop and that is it. It is a Lexmark 83. No copies.

What u can try is remove the ink cartridges from the printer. Unplugg and replugg the power cable. Clean the copper contacts of the carts using a dry paper towell. Snap the cart back to the printer and install the cart as the new cart. Print the alignment page and if still have the same issue it might be the issue with the encoder strip. Call Lex Tech Support and get help to fix the encoder strip.

You can also try to download the updated drivers/software from here:

Use original brother carts: Make sure that all carts are placed well and are secured. Press menu then start mono (blue b/w copy button) then four times arrow-up (tel-index?). machine should be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4. machine will do a cart initialization and do some cleaning. Leave the maintenance mode by pressing 9 then 9 when its ready. Do a test print. If need do cleaning cycles twice.

In case you cant see mag. and cyan your printhead is defectiv and has to be replaced.
