Question about Brother MFC-5840CN All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Empty Ink Cartrage message when cartrage still has a lot of ink.

I have the Brother MFC5840cn. It frequently gives me the empty ink cartrage message however the cartrage is generally not empty. The printer will not print after the message comes up not even black when a color is supposed to be out. I end up buying a lot of new carttrages but getting very few copies done. I also have a lot of half full cartrages. Is there a solution short of buying a better printer?

I'm going to provide you a solution worth many dollars now you can use your left over half filled cartidges and in future also use the cartridges to the extreme.
1. Go to menu and select manual override for toner cartridges and then only replace toner when the print quality starts to suffer. This can save you thousands of dollars over the life of this fine printer.
2. download and read this

I installed new epson ink cartrage, but printer has red x and tells me to change ink again.? Can i just change only the bkack ink?


Yes you should be able to just change the black ink cartrage, A lot of printer wont allow other third party cartrages, is it a genuine epson ink cartridge? if so try cleaning the contacts on the cartrage.

Color ink cartridge says empty i just filled it


When you put in a "new" cartrage the printer sens an electrical charge to the cartrage to set it up properly. So I would treat this as a new cartrage, rather than a refilled one. Go to the printer menu and re install the ink cartrage in question, it should recognise it and start the function as a new one, good luck
