SOURCE: red will not print after cleaning several times

There may be a problem with the printer's mechanism, electronics, or even the software. You should probably contact the company, and explain the situation. Presuming you have an internet connection, they may be able to correct the software via your computer, over the internet. You'll just have to allow the company access to your machine.

SOURCE: Brother MFC-420CN keeps showing Unable to Print w full ink

I often have the same problem - The inks being put into the printer are seated very sensitively. The lever holding them in may be also acting as a pressure sensitive switch because when I wiggle it a little, the printer usually starts working again! Make sure the cartridges are pressed STRAIGHT DOWN, wiggle them and wiggle the plastic pressure lever. (I do not know what else to call it!) and I hope yours works again. It is a great little printer, but this is really annoying! Good luck!
BTW, if your inks are RE-FILLED, that may be your problem. It seems they are made to NOT be refilled. To avoid this problem, do not wait till they are empty to refill them. Check them monthly (depends on usage) and when they get 1/2 way, refill then. Do NOT put the hypodermic refilling tube in deeper than necessary to refill. I use a heated nail to make my hole in the plastic, going ONLY in as far as necessary to make the hole, and then I cover it with scotch tape. Then I wash off my hands with Lava soap! (Haven't mastered the knack of not getting the ink on myself, yet!)

SOURCE: new black ink cartridge showing full but not

This could be several things, some of which may mean your machine will have to be repaired by a Brother agent (probably cost you more than a new one), and/or it's time to bin it.
However, sometimes it's just because the print head, or the pipes that connect the ink tanks to the print head, have become blocked with dried out ink.
If you search on YouTube, you will find a few videos that show how to clear such blockages - you may not find your exact model number, but many Brother machines use almost identical components to many others so the basic technique will be the same. Also search on Ebay for printer cleaning/head blockage kits - quite a few printers (not just Brother) suffer similar problems and a few businesses have sprung up on EBay that sell kits to help you sort this. They sometimes have links to a video they have produced showing how to use the kit which can give you ideas. Again, your exact model number or even make might not come up but these kits might be adaptable to your machine. Got to be worth a tenner or so before binning it ! Good luck

My lexmark 5600-6600 reading low ink. Yet they are brand new cartriges. What do I do?


Take a small piece of clear tape. Try covering one of the outside vertical row of contacts at the front of the cartridge. Re-insert it and it should force the printer into thinking it is a new cartridge.
Ink now shows with question mark but reads as full and prints fine.

Printing blank paper

At a guess you've bought a compatible generic cartrige. I had a similar problem different printer.

I had to by a genuine cartrige, worked fine. Contacted the generic cartrige provider, explained the problem. Returned cartriges and got refund no problem.

It looks like the generic cartrige makers are seeing some solutions to chipped cartridges but not all.

U130 ink message on pixma mp620

Very simple solution: When the pixma mp620 screen shows error U130, Hold down the stop (red triangle) key for about 7 - 10 seconds. This overrides/turns off the ink monitoring function. The printer will begin "thinking" for a bit and then start printing. Note: you may have to do this seperately for each color. You'll also notice that when the lid is open and the cartridges are in position for changing, the cartridges that used to be "out" are no longer flashing red, nor a stead red. They are dark.

Put in new ink and it still won't pick up the pink and maroon. When I print the red tones they look yellow cause these cartriges arn't being used. How do I get the printer to grab these colors. It won't...

You must perform the "clean head" utility.
Go to
[Printers and Faxes]
right-click on your printer and select [Properties]
[Maintenance] tab
Clean print head or other maintenance utilities.
You may have to do this 2 or 3 times.

Remove the cartridge, take a flashlight and check the right side inside the printer for a RED LED (in the place where the cartidge stays). Take a tape and patch that LED. That's all ! Enjoy
