If you are using new cartridges, the problem is in the sensors. The ink sensors get dirty and malfunction. Remove the ink cartridges and thoroughly clean all the surfaces, Allow to completely dry and replace the cartridges. This should cure your problem.
p.s. I usually use alcohol on a Q-Tip to clean

I have a brother intellifax 1840c (which is great, by the way). I need to change the ink cartridge & have no idea how to get into it. Is there a latch or button to help open it? Please help.


1 Close the document support and the document tray.

2 Lift the top cover to the open position until it locks securely into
place. If one or more ink cartridges are empty, for example Black, the
LCD shows Ink Empty Black and Open Cover.

3 Pull the ink cartridge hook toward you and remove the ink
cartridge for the color shown on the LCD.


You can find the procedure on changing the ink cartridges in the user manual, page 12-25.

No cartridge


A “No Cartridge” error message on 1960c products is caused by third-party (non-Brother) ink cartridges
leaking ink onto the Ink Sensor PCB and shorting out the cartridge sensor. In order to resolve this issue, a new
Ink Sensor PCB will need to be installed.

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.

Brother Intellifax 1840C the only one thing you can to do is stick masking tape around the cartridge, there is an switch, when you take off the cartidge the switch is off, when you put it on the switch is on, this is out = "off" and in= "on", do the same with the other colors.
greetings.
