Question about Brother MFC-5840CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
I desperately need to perform a scan, but it will not let me continue without replacing the ink cartriges, it is now midnight, what can I do?
There is a sensor in the printer that checks ink levels. The sensor uses a beam of light to do so; if the light bounces back, the machine assumes there is ink in the cart and continues to operate. If the light is not bounced back, the machine assumes that the cart is empty and starts beeping and won't allow any other functions until cartridge is replaced.
Take a piece of black electrician's tape and placed it on the cartridge’s spine. The sensor will assume the cartridge has plenty of ink and will function.
