Says it will not detect ink, will not print. Ink cartridges are good. Please Help?


Use compressed air to clean the inside and see if it will pick it up then. Also try the old cartridge to see if it can detect it, if so you will know that you have a cartridge problem.

I ran out of the other color cartridges, and just bought a new black ink cartridge only. So can it work without the other color cartridges, and only on the black ink cartridge, because every time I try to...


Hi,
No many of the printers will need to have both the color and the black cartridges to work...
You will have to purchase and install a new cartridge to get it working correctly.

I cannot find the slot to replace ink cartridges! Brother LC61CL


Which Brother all-in-one printer or copier do you have? The LC61CL cartridges fit MFC-255CW, MFC-290C, MFC-295CN, MFC-490CW, MFC-495CW, MFC-5490CN, MFC-5890CN, MFC-5895CW, MFC-6490CW, MFC-790CW, MFC-795CW, MFC-990CW, MFC-J410w, MFC-J615W and the DCP-165C . The cartridges could fit other printers as well.

I know that the MFC_795CW has a cover on the right hand side that you need to open when the unit is on. Then the cartridge carrier will move to the ink changing area. (For a new printer, there is a green protector in place that you need to pull out. Keep this in case you move the printer later.) This location applies for the DCP-165C copier as well.

If the unit is on but the cartridge carrier does not move to the opening of the ink cartridge cover, then something may be blocking the carrier from moving. This could be a scrap of paper or other foreign object blocking the route.

Brother has the support for most of their printers available here: http://www.brother-usa.com/Support/ . There is a specific link for just the manuals on the page as well.

More complete trouble-shooting guides are available if you search for your model from the Brother search box at the top right hand corner of the page. Go to the product details page and then see the Brother Solution Center links on the right hand side of the page.

I hope this helps.

Brother MFC-290c printer does not print black anymore. Test print page color ok but not black printing. What is the problem?


The problem is either:

* out of BLACK ink -- replace the ink-cartridge

* clogged ink-jets -- the ink is not spraying onto the paper, so run a few print-head-cleaning cycles

* dead electronics -- not triggering the jets to spray ink, so replace the printer

Mfc 290, replaced ink cartridges and the black will not print only the colors. printer cleaned and no progress. any help?


You could clean the black ink cartridge. For this you need to remove the black ink cartridge which is present in the printer. In order to clean the laser or scanner block you could use a cotton swab as it would fully clean the dirt. You need to clean the grime and the dried ink present in the printer. This would remove all the hindrances which prevent the ink from flowing. Cleaning the printer heads would also help to solve the problem.

If any of the inks need to be changed, will it shut down the printer to where it says; "cannot print"?


No, you can change the 'ink tank' (its a capallary supplied ink from the cartridges which are actually ink tanks to the print head.
Never refill the original cartridges. Use genuine else print head will go off.
