From the Brother solutions website:

If the message "NO CARTRIDGE" remains on the LCD after you have installed the ink cartridges, then one or more of the cartridges may not be properly installed. Verify that the cartridges are installed correctly by following these steps:


    Cartridges that have already been installed are no longer vacuum-sealed, so it is very important that these cartridges remain upright. If a cartridge is removed from the machine and placed on its side, air may be introduced into the ink supply tubes. As a result, repeated cleaning will likely be required before normal print quality is restored.

  1. Unplug the machine from the AC power outlet, wait approximately 10 seconds and then plug it back in.
    If the date and time appear on the display, the issue is resolved. If the display continues to show NO CARTRIDGE, continues to Step 2.

  2. Open the scanner cover by lifting it from the right-hand side until it locks securely into the open position.

  3. Remove the black ink cartridge by pulling the white plastic hook (locked over the edge of the ink cartridge) toward you, then lifting the cartridge out.

  4. The LCD should prompt you to install the black ink cartridge.

  5. Reinstall the black cartridge. Press down FIRMLY on the top of the cartridge until it is fully seated. Push the white plastic hook towards the cartridge to verify it is fully latched over the cartridge's top edge. Repeat STEPS 2 - 4 to verify each that of the color cartridges (magenta, cyan and yellow) is installed properly, then continue to STEP.

  6. Close the scanner cover. The unit should begin cleaning automatically.

Printer not accepting new black ink cartridge

put that cartridge in and perform a head cleaning process, and allignment... follow the procedure (2 or 3 times if needed) and in the end, shut down the printer, disconnect usb cable (both end), then wait for some time, aprox. 20 sec. and then put both end in again, turn printer on and wait for ready signal or some sort of confirmation that all is ok... If not, replace or update the printer driver and software, or reinstall all printer software.

Hp c4150 printer won't recognize my refilled black 98 cartridge. first time it has been refilled. how do i reset the printer to accept the refilled cartridge?

Dear jiraphe102,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

Unfortunately, you have the particular brand of cartridge that cannot be refilled. The smart chip on the original cartridge has expired; and will not reset.
You can purchase refurbished Ink online (meaning they have rebuilt the entire cartridge) at the link below.

Refurbished Ink

Or buy new cartridges.

Have a great day!

I have a canon IP 4200 printer. The ink cartridge light on the Magenta ink cartridge doesn't work so it won't accept/recognize that a new ink cartridge has been installed. Is this something that...

It sounds as though you have a break in the carriage ribbon cable. A new carriage would hopefully cure it but its just possible the logic board has failed and is not sending any signal to the magenta ink tank. Its certainly repairable but you would need to know the costs and the labour charge to see if its worthwhile.

My Hp officejet 6110 printer does not want to accept a re-filled ink cartridge. Why? Can this problem be fixed? How? It only wants to accept new cartridges and I know that the stores want to sell new...

Who refilled the ink-cartridge?
If you did it, then you need to "reset" the electronics inside the ink-cartridge, to indicate to the printer that it is a "new" cartridge, and not the same "empty" cartridge.

When you say "does not accept", EXACTLY what error-message do you get?

Message tells me black ink cartridge empty when I just put new one in

if you are using a refilled cartridge the printer don't accept them, you need to use the proper canon ink cartridge, if you are using the canon cartridge you have to press the stop botton for 5sec for accepting the new cartridge.

My printer wont accept my coloured ink cartridge

Is it the new original cartrigde colour or not ? If yes, you should ask a guarantee from the seller.
There is a chip inside the cartridge, sometimes it doesn't compatible for the printer software to read the chip.
The printer will keep asking for the new one if there is no ink in the cartridge.

New ink cartridge for Kodak Easy Share 5300 will not work

The version of firmware you originally had on the printer when you changed the ink cartridge was bad. There is a known issue that when you put in a new ink cartridge when the printer is in the error state "COLOR INK EMPTY. REPLACE COLOR INK CARTRIDGE" the unit writes that value to the new ink cartridge so you will continue to have that error.

So to fix your problem Open the access door and Remove the ink cartridges. Then download and install the new Firmware. Heres the link.

Kodak AiO 5300 Firmware

Then sadly you have to go get another new ink tank and install it.

If you can get through to kodak you should request reimbursement of some sort like a free set of ink tanks.

I hope this helps
