Is this a question about refill ink? With Brother and Canon original inks, they use a special type of ultraviolet ink for their ink level sensors to detect. I wouldn't recommend using anything but the original because of shortened printhead life. I have had many repair requests because of aftermarket inks....

Refill a max of 12ml for Y/C/M and 20ml for bk.

BTW
brother has changed the inside of the carts. So plz check carefully the pics if your cart looks the same. If it looks different you should drill the hole near the upper valve (the one with the white plastic)!

How to refill ink cartridge of Epson me32?


Follow these steps:
1.
Buy an Epson ink refill kit. A refill kit gives you all the tools you need to refill Epson ink cartridges. Kits typically include a syringe, rivets, ink, and instructions on how to refill the cartridge. You can find Epson ink refill kits on the Printer Filling Station along with instructions for each specific model (see Resources).
2.
Cover your workspace with a paper towel and fill up the syringe with the ink color you need. Epson refill kits will either include black ink or the color combination cyan, yellow and magenta. On average, you'll need 10 ml of black ink or 5 ml of color ink for Epson ink cartridges.
3.
Find the rubber seals on the back of the Epson ink cartridge. Insert the rivets into each seal.
4.
Empty the contents of the syringe into the Epson ink cartridge. You'll want to perform this action slowly in order to avoid spilling or overfilling the cartridge.
5.
Remove the rivets. Use tape to cover the holes you made in the ink cartridge. Return the ink cartridge to the printer. Allow the printer to go through several print cycles in order to ensure that the Epson printer operates properly.

In case of any additional help please revert back

Ink


better use this generic ink carts, which work pretty much better than the original ones :o

(LC1000 is identical to LC51)

There is much trouble by refilling original carts, because of the ink which might clog the ph.
Anyway if you keen on inky-fingers, malfunction ph and maybe bad printing results:

Refilling LC37's


This answer:
http://www.refillinstructions.com/Brother/B6.htm
is wrong.  It doesn't work for LC37 cartrdges, because they are not the same as LC51.  There are no instructions on that site that work.  Here's what I do:

You don't have to take the shell off the cartridge; it would be better if you did, but it doesn't come off nearly so easily as the above link says.  It is glued together, so to take it off, you have to split the seam with a very sharp knife.  If you can do this, the refilling job will be a lot easier as you will be able to see what you are doing.  If you don't want to attempt it, you can still fill it "blind".

You need a 10ml syringe.  You don't need a needle.  The tip of the syringe is not quite long enough, so I had to make an extension for it.  I used a piece of skinny tubing from the inside of an old spray bottle.  I cut about 1" (2.5 cm) off and attached it to the end of the syringe using epoxy putty, like the stuff for patching leaking radiators.  You can get it at any hardware.  I put a piece of wire through it to keep it aligned while I was molding the putty around it.

After it sets, fill the syringe with 5ml of ink.  Push it into the outlet hole of the cartridge while twisting it until it is firmly stuck into the hole.  Turn the cartridge/syringe assembly so the syringe is up.  Pull back on the handle and **** 5ml of air from the cartridge.  Then gently squeeze the 5ml of ink in.  Fill the syringe with another 5ml of ink and repeat.  You may find it hard to **** air out without getting ink as well.  The cartridge is built like a labyrinth inside, so there are lots of places for ink to get trapped.  Twist and turn the cartridge and push and pull until you've got the 5ml of air.  Then again put the syringe topmost and gently squeeze in the ink.  If you have removed the shell, this will be easy to do.  The main point is to make sure you remove the same amount of air as the ink you put in.  Do not push the plunger valve.  If you do, you very likely will get a handful of ink.  

An LC37 only holds 10ml of ink, not 30 like the LC51.

When you are finished, you can gently push the plunger just slightly; if any ink comes out, you need to remove some more air.  You can damage the printer if you install a cartridge that has pressure inside it.  New cartridges have a vacuum inside; you can hear them go "whoosh" when you click them into place.  If not a vacuum, you need to at least have neutral pressure before you install it.  This is very important.  The printer has sensitive electronic sensors mounted roght at the business end of the cartridges.  If any ink gets spilled in there, your printer will likely be ruined.  Be warned.

It is about impossible to do this without any spillage.
Wash the cartridge in running water, shake out the excess thoroughly and then dry it with a paper towel.  Don't install it unless it is totally dry and not pressurized.

Error 46


Getting error 46 means waistinktank filled up.

You need a new waistinktank.

Im not sure if you can get one at a service partner (see brother homepage of your country). Ask for it. If your machine is still in warranty they will do the job for free.

BTW: You must have run a lot of cleaning cycles! Is it because you run generic ink? The waist ink tank of the lc51 carts last at least 3 years at normal office condition.
