Question about Brother DCP 165C Compact Color Inkjet Multifunction Printer
The cartridge is requires to be refilled immediately when it runs out of ink otherwise the print head gets dried up and becomes unusable.
Remove the ink cartridge; in the front side you'll see a small lever moving in side the transparent cartridge above the ink supply nozel. This is the sensor and tells about the ink quantity in the cartridge.
very carefully make a pin hole in it and use a 5ml syringe filled with "CISS ink" and not ordinary ink. CISS Ink is specially meant for continuous ink supply system and easily available for little higher price than normal ink.
Remember that the side walls of your Brother ink cartridges are made of transparent polythene and hence when injecting the needle of the syringe be careful that it does not go puncture the side walls and goes straight vertically. Injet the ink. Seal the pin hole with wax. You can use burning candle to drop little melted wax over the hole.
The better idea would be to break open a cartridge and see for yourself so that you dont damage the side walls accidentally.
The refillable ink cartridge set is available just for US $ 9.30 shipping paid from eBay.com I am using that set. Be careful Brother would void your warranty if it finds out that you are using refillables.

Trust me, this is the BEST way and the EASIEST way to refill black and
color LC61 or LC65 inkjet cartridge from Brother. See the pictures
1. cut the plastic part (see picture). You can use a utility knife or a steak knife (very easy to do)
2. make a hole on the left side (NOT in the midle) and do it straight and don't go deep (see picture)
3. poor the ink with your refill kit and do it straight and don't go deep because the inner side of the cartrigde is made of cheap plastic (like a plastic bag) and you don't want to perforate it
4. put your plug, tape, hot glue or what ever you have to seal the hole.
5. put the cartrigde back in your printer, do a print test and this is it.

You will need to reset the Flag gear. This is situated at the other end of the cartridge to the refill hopper. There are 3 screws that you must undo first, you will notice a small white flag gear, this needs to be turned back to the beginning of the curved section. After removing the screws, CAREFULLY remove the end plate and pull the flag gear out slightly and return it to the beginning position, which is the other end of the curved section. Put your cartridge back together again..Your printer will now accept this refilled cartridge
