Could be various issues. Some printer cartridges are programmed to expire so they will not be usable after a certain date. Other cartridges made or filled in foreign countries will not work. Try a brand new cartridge.

This is common problem with Brother Printers. I am going to assume you are using Non-Brother branded ink cartridges. Brother cartridges have a cleanser in the ink that most generic cartridges don't have. This in turn causes the jets to clog and not allow ink to pass through them. The fix is to go buy a couple of Brother cartridges and do a cleaning with those cartridges. You may spend some money doing this as a cleaning wastes a lot of ink, but it will clean the injection lines and fix the printer. You could also consider buying a new printer. I know this is not the answer you were looking for, but it is the true answer. I just bought a new printer due to this fact.
In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.
One for power and the another is a function button.
Push them together at the same time while the printer is on.
In most cases this will move the ink head to the center on the machine in order for you to remove the old ink cartridges and install the new ones. However a different button may need to be used consult the manual in this regard.
The ink cartridges are clipped in, you will need to undo the clip!
Then pull the ink cartridge out, usually upward force applies.
Now once the old cartridges are removed you can install the new cartridges.
Be sure to remove any stickers that are meant to be removed, read the sticker and if it says "remove before use" then remove it.
Insert the cartridge and push them down, then the clip is to be clipped in.
Now to get the ink head to move back to it's lair first try pushing the function button.
If nothing happens then push both buttons together again.
Please read this session a number of times to get thejist of what needs to be done.
Also I would like to ask you to please rate this session with the use of the Thumbs on the right.
There is only one solution to the problem with the i80. Here it is: there is nothing jammed. This problem is the result of the top of the printer being pushed down, effectively crushing the paper feed path by a sixteenth of an inch, right at the center of the machine. Likely this is the result of being carried in a travel bag full of other stuff, like the power supply, or from things being placed to rest on top of the printer. The solution is to open the two top covers, to grasp the main steel bar that runs the entire width of the printer with a pair of long-nosed pliers and to simply apply upward pressure. This will, in turn, lift a black plastic paper guide that has been pushed down into the path of the paper by the slightly bent metal. The printer will happily feed paper after this relatively simple fix. Mark the problem up to bad industrial design (though the mechanisms of the printer are otherwise ingeniously well thought out).
1) With the power on, open the front cover. The print head should move to the center. 2) Prepare the new cartridge for installation by removing the tape(s). Do not touch the area of the ink cartridge that was protected by the tapes. 3) Insert color cartridge into the right slot, then the black into the left slot. Push up and in until the cartridge clicks into place. 4) Close the front cover. Wait until the printer finishes preparing the new cartridge(s).
Confirm that the printer is powered on and press the <Open>
button (MP500) or manually pull open the paper output tray
Lift the scanning unit (printer cover) completely. (The print head will move to the replacement position.)
When the scanning unit (printer cover) is opened more than ten minutes,
the print head moves to the right side. If this occurs, close the
scanning unit (printer cover), and open it again.
Open the inner cover.
Unpack the ink tank and pull the orange tape off completely in the direction of the arrow and remove the film.
Note: Tear the orange tape carefully along the dotted line. If the orange tape remains, printing problems may occur.
<4> Tape is completely removed.
<5> Tape remains.
Remove the orange protective cap located on the bottom of the ink tank by twisting as shown in the diagram.
Do not touch the ink tank contact <6>. Doing so may cause
printing problems. Do not squeeze the side of ink tanks as this may
cause the ink to leak out. Do not reattach the protective cap once you
have removed it.
Insert ink tanks into the print head.
NOTE: Press the mark <PUSH> on the ink tank firmly until you hear a click.
Ensure that all the ink tanks are installed properly and the ink tank lamps light red.
Close the inner cover and the scanning unit (printer cover).
CAUTION: When closing the scanning unit (printer cover), be careful not to jam fingers.
Memo: The next printing begins, the print head cleaning will begin automatically.
Ink Tank Lamp indications
You can check the status of each ink tank according to the way its lamp flashes.
- On: The printer is ready to print.
- Slow flashing (at about three second interval): Ink is low. Prepare a new ink tank.
- Fast flashing (at about one second interval): Ink tank is empty, or the printer is not ready due to an error.
- Off: An error has occurred and the printer is not ready to print.
