Re: MFC-3240 C

Check your other cartridges. If one is also empty it will display no cartridge.

Printer will acknowledge only 3 of 4 new ink cartridges - keeps saying change LC51M

doesn't LC51M refer to Magenta(red) not Cyan(blue). on my J435W the colors goes as follows: BK Y C M LC71 Series cartridges. Maybe you have them switched around? just a thought.

The printer keep asking for ink replacement. the cartridge ink is half full. how can i use the remaining ink if the printer wants to replace a new ink. plz help

You take on the cartridge and you get the cartridge into the printer to put a mid-trough, where they see the chicken trough of ink cartridges.In the middle of the cartridge put tape and the printer see the cartridge full and you can use the remaining ink.If i have been useful please give me a vote :).Thanks

Just replaced ink cartridges on my Brother MFC

Hi there you can refill Brother cartidges, like other printers it will not have it sorry.

This is the only way you can trick it.

There are only a few steps you need to do to reset a Brother printer ink cartridge and once you do it, you will be up and printing in no time. There are actually two things that a Brother printer uses to detect ink and you can manipulate one or the other.
Things You'll Need: · Black electrical tape, masking tape or duct tape
1. Step 1
Identify the printer If your printer uses memory, you can tell which printer you have by looking at where the cartridge goes in, if you see two "eyes" and a part of the cartridge goes in between them, follow Step 3. Otherwise, continue with Step 2.
2. Step 2
Clear the memory by taking the cartridge out and unplugging the unit for 30 seconds. Then, plug it back in and put back in the cartridge. You may need to do this five times, as the memory holds the last five cartridges.
3. Step 3
If the Brother printer has "eyes" where the cartridge goes, you will need to block in between them with a piece of tape so that it thinks the cartridge is always full. Simply put a piece of tape on the piece of the cartridge that goes in between the eyes to block the path of the infrared beam

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Keeps saying insert ink cartridge but is in there

Just unplug the machine and plug back in while holding the stop key, usually clears that error. Make sure there is ink in the cartridge first.

Won't recognize ink cartridge

Try and make sure the slot for the cartridge is clean so the sensor can see, also make sure this is a new cartridge
