Unplug mfc from power! Take carts out. Wait three minutes then plug powercord in again. Power up mfc. Wait until machine demands carts. Set carts in. If aksed by machine answer display: Press 1 for YES (new cart) repeat until all carts are reinsert. NEVER change carts when its displayed NEAR EMPTY! Only at EMPTY. Should work!

SOURCE: I keep getting the message unable to print see trouble shooting in manual

I have the same problem with my DCP-115C.
The message is "unable to print - see trouble shooting in the manual"
The message was comming when I changed black cartrige on new one and tests print and cleans many times (accordig to print test results).

I tried to move my printer to the maintanance mode by press start mono and 4-times arrow up, but the machine is blocked.
It means when I press start mono button (blue) the printer gives 3 pips (noise signal) and nothing do even I pressed arrow up 4-times.

Please help me to solve the problem.

SOURCE: Brother MFC 5840CNZ displays Ink Empty on CYAN when new cartridge is installed

Put a piece of masking tape on the sides of the little window on the cartridge. That will make the machine think all cartridges are full all the time.

SOURCE: printer cannot detect new yellow ink, the near empty message on

The Ink sensor sounds like it needs to be replaced. This happens from time to time.

Black Cartrige Missing


Did you use a brandname ink cartridge - or is it a knock-off brand? If it is a brand name - then the cartridge is most likely defective. If it is a knock-off brand - some printers do not recognize the electronic in the cartridge and therefore don't see it as one being installed.

Where do the ink cartriges on a brother mfc 5460cn fo


Your machine is equipped with an ink dot

counter. The ink dot counter automatically

monitors the level of ink in each of the 4

cartridges. When the machine detects an ink

cartridge is running out of ink, the machine

will tell you with a message on the LCD.

The LCD will tell you which ink cartridge is low

or needs replacing. Be sure to follow the LCD

prompts to replace the ink cartridges in the

correct order.

Even though the machine tells you that an ink

cartridge is empty, there will be a small

amount of ink left in the ink cartridge. It is

necessary to keep some ink in the ink

cartridge to prevent air from drying out and

damaging the print head assembly.

a Open the ink cartridge cover.

If one or more ink cartridges are empty,

for example Black, the LCD shows

Ink Empty Black and

Replace Ink.

b Pull the lock release lever down and

take out the ink cartridge for the color
shown on the LCD.

c Open the new ink cartridge bag for the

color shown on the LCD, and then take

out the ink cartridge.
d Remove the protective yellow cap (1).

Note

If the protective yellow caps come off

when you open the bag, the cartridge will

not be damaged.

e Each color has its own correct position.

Insert the ink cartridge in the direction of

the arrow on the label.

f Lift each lock release lever and push it

until it clicks, and then close the ink

cartridge cover.

g If you replaced an ink cartridge, the LCD

may ask you to verify that it was a brand

new one. (For example,

Did You Change Blck?) For each

new cartridge you installed, press 1

(Yes) to automatically reset the ink dot

counter for that color. If the ink cartridge

you installed is not a brand new one, be

sure to press 2 (No).

If you wait until the LCD shows

Near Empty and Ink Empty, the
machine will automatically.

I recieve a message when trying to use my pixma cannon ip 90 that reads the color cartrige is empty, so i replaced it. still gettin message and wont print.....please help dallas44432@yahoo


Go into control panel, and right click on your printer and select properties. Under maintenance you will find the reset to show the inks as new. Also if you open the top cover while connected to your computer and then try to print a window will pop up asking if you put in new ink, answer yes and tell it which ink is new and it will be reset.

Refill cartrige and printer says replace cartrige


A lot of printer manufactures place a small chip on the ink cartridge. Combined with the printer software it knows you re-filled the cartridge. This forces you to buy new ink. A work around that works with some printers. Keep you're old ink cartridges. Replace with new and when it empties replace with you're re-filled ink cartridge. Store you're old re-filled cartridges in a dry cool place when not in use. With HP printers users keep three cartridges.

Good luck.

Ink red light on . which colour is out?


When red ink light flashes - one or more ink cartridges is low. When you print, a message on your screen will tell you which one(s).

When red ink light remains on - one or more ink cartridges is empty. When you try to print, a message on your screen will tell you which one(s).

Furthermore: When following the procedure for installing a new cartridge, if the red ink light was on or flashing, pressing the ink button will cause the carriage to stop with the cartridge that needs replacing under the "ink out mark" (ink droplet with a slash through it).

Cant get re-filled ink cartrige to work


It sounds like whoever refilled the ink cartridges did not reset the counter in the cartridge, so it thinks that it is still empty.

Installing ink cartridge


I've had this problem too. The only way to make the message go away is to buy the ink from Dell. Although generic ink cartriges will work the printer will not/can not reset the "low ink" message unless you buy the cartriges directly from Dell. So you can use another brand, but you'll just have to overide the low ink message when it pops up by telling it to continue printing. Then you can tell when the ink is low by seeing it when it prints out.
