Question about Brother MFC 420CN All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Wont reconzie ink cartride.

So I used all of my Cyan color & the printer said to replace ink, I bought a new cartridge but it said no cartridge was installed when it was. I messaged the company about it, followed all of their steps & in the end, ended up buying another cartridge, in case the first one was just defective, well its saying the same thing with the one. Any way to fix this?

What does cyan mean on a brother 240-c all in 1 printer it says replace cyan it wont do nothing

Cyan is the "blue/green" ink cartridge which is required to print in full color. Some printers stop working when one or more ink cartridges is empty. Get a complete set for some savings and for the next cartridge that gets empty. Printers are cheap now, it's the ink that gets costly.

Replaced a new cyan cartridge for Epson 1400. Printer ignored it.

Ye of course it could be faulty and Epsons are sometimes very fussy about using third party carts. Get it replaced at your store, try a different brand or buy a genuine Epson cart if you can afford it.

Won't print with just black ink cartridge

When you print, in the printing window, click properties, then click advanced. Most times you can select to print using black cartridge only. Unfortunately you will need to replace to get the printer working. If you need further assistance let me know.
Thank you,

Cartridge recommendations

You can purchase Canon cartridges directly from Canon here. The BC-10 is a cartridge that prints with black ink only. The BCI-10 is the replacement ink tank for this cartridge (a new cartridge comes complete with an ink tank). The BC-11e is a cartridge that prints both black and color, and has two ink tanks, the BCI-11 black and BCI-11 color. A new BC-11e cartridge comes complete with two new ink tanks.

Ink cartridge replacement

I had the same problem, and after scouring around online for a few days, I learned that this is one of the biggest gripes about this printer. Basically, you're out of luck unless you replace EVERYTHING, even though you only want to print black (nuts, isn't it?). So I went out and bought all new color cartridges, and it STILL won't print. I think it's just a bad printer all around. :(

Canon MP510 wont recognise cartridges

Using replacement cartridges that come without a chip seems to be the problem I had with the Canon Pixma 510 printer they are cheaper
but if they do not show the ink levels then its inconvienent so I have but Canon products with a chip and they work perfectly.

Cyan ink tank not recognised

I phoned Canon Tech Support Center this morning. They had me replace the ink tank giving me the U150 error code and are sending me a replacement tank. HOPEFULLY this will solve the problem.

Re: Hp Color Laserjet 2600n

Are you using Xerox or aftermarket compatible ink stixs? I have seen aftermarket ink stixs ruin these machines. You can go to Xerox website and find information on running a process to hopefully clear up the "cyan" or blue printing problem.
