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!

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.

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.

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
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
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).
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
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.
