Question about Brother MFC-5460CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
Have just had all of my cartridges refilled and when i install them it says: 'no cartridge open cover and re install'..which i have done 100 times!
This is a simple fix. This printer uses a LIGHT SENSOR to detect if the cartridge is installed properly. Numerous things can allow extra light to enter... your solution is this:
Get electrical tape (duct tape may be too thick) and cover the rear sides of your cartridge; along with the recessed square shaped area that is directly in the center of your cartridge. Cut the tape so that you can cover this area without impeding the shape of the cartridge (so it can still be inserted and removed easily) I have used this solution to repair this exact problem on MFC-665CW when installing a continuous ink supply (in place of the original cartridges) You can actually just tape the internal sensor and close the front cover if you want to test it without any cartridge at all (though its not a good idea to print like that as I"m not sure if it will damage the unit) Those of you wishing to only buy Black ink can attempt this if you dont care about voiding the warranty or possibly breaking the unit... just cover the other slots with electric tape.

So where can I get a new cart holder, is this something an amateur can install?

Have you tried to leave the printer off for a few minutes and then retry?
Sometimes a simple power cycle is an easy solution.

...and wont go away...
because splashed ink has stained the led control board (short circuit). This cant be fixed!
You need a new cart holder as spare part.
