My printer said that there was no ink when there was

My DCP-350C printer said that there was no ink left in the yellow ink cartridge so i took it out and looked at it but there is still ink in it so i put it back in. Now the printer says that there is no yellow cartridge even in the printer and keeps telling me how to change it and wont do anything else. how do i get it to recognise that there is a cartridge there and that it does have ink in it? otherwise i can't use the printer at all

Install ink and not been used however tried putting inks in more than once yet it still say no yellow pink or magenta


Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command , can be an issue with ink drying , can also be poor ink cartridge contacts.

Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.


Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage.
Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.
Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now

If that does not work then follow the next step.


Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

Empty yellow cartridge, but cannot print in black?


Most printers use a little of all inks in their functioning, just to keep all the inks flowing, so while it is not printing yellow, it uses it in the startup mode to verify function and cleaning mode to clean the nozzles. Manufacturers usually do not put in a bypass for this, because they make money mostly on selling you ink cartridges.

I have a Brother DCP350 and no yellow ink. But tonight I have to print a document. Will the printer work without Yellow? I have been trying for an hour now and cannot print anything.


Hi matt651, I had the same problem with the DCP-350. As soon as one of the colour cartidges was empty, which happened frequently due to the high ink loss during the cleaning process, the machine stopped working, even when I only wanted to print using black. This is how i worked around the problem using a piece of grey card stock: The tanks have a small clear window that lets you see the ink in the cartridge. This window also triggers a photocell which sits in a little black fork at the back of each of the printer's ink cartridge slots. When the ink levels are up, the cell is blocked, thereby indicating a full cartridge. When the ink level in the cartridge drops below the photocell, the cell switches over, indicating an empty cartridge. So in order to simulate a full ink catridge I removed the offending empty one and instead slipped a piece of cardboard into its slot, thereby fooling the photocell. And hey presto, when I switched the printer back on, all ink cartridges thus manipulated were shown as being "full" and I could continue printing.
Kind regards, Rog

Replacing the cart holder on a Brother MFC 240C


Somethings that have worked for some Brother owners to get cartridges recognised.

1. With your MFC powered up, open it up and remove the cartridge you are having a problem with, then close the MFC, leaving it powered up. It should report that there is no cartridge in the machine.

Still with the MFC powered up, open it up and reinsert the ink cartridge, then close the MFC. It should either ask if you have replaced a cartridge or go into its cleaning mode.

Answer "yes" to "have you replaced cartridge?" and it should either "print" or "clean" and then "print".


2. The cartridge holder in the printer has an "electronic eye" (light sensor) of some type for each cartridge.
Some users have found that putting either permanent marker/sharpie/black PVC tape either on the area of the ink cartridge that goes near the sensor or alternatively putting tape over the sensor itself allows printing to occur.
The problem with this method is that the printer will no longer recognise near-empty cartridges and so will not warn you to replace them and so the print head may be damaged. This is said to work on LC57 icartridges used with the following models: DCP-330C, DCP-350C, DCP-540CN, DCP-560CN, FAX-2480C, MFC-240C, MFC-440CN, MFC-465CN, MFC-665CW, MFC-685CW, MFC-885CW, MFC-3360C, MFC-5460CN, MFC-5860CN.
