    Thank you for your response. However, the problem here is that the display will not come up with question " have you change..set 1 for yes and 2 for no" even when I replaced new cartridge for this Magenta colour...instead it appears to be on default " near empty Magenta" all the time. Other colour and black were ok.

You have to press 1 (for Yes) when the display asks if you have changed the cart.

Take cart out and insert again. Watch display!

    OK. Did you do a firmware update? Do this first by downloading the firmwareupdatetool from brother homepage of your country and running the firmware update. After that simply unplug machine from POWER OUTLET. Take all carts out! Replug to power after 2 minutes and and open the scanner to insert carts. This time machine will ask if you have placed carts in.

Near empty black is displayed even with new black cartridge


If you replaced an ink cartridge while Near Empty was displayed on the LCD, the LCD may ask you to verify that it was
a brand new one. Example: Did You Change Blck? 1.Yes 2.No. For each new cartridge you installed, press 1 on the dial
pad to automatically reset the ink dot counter for that color. If the ink cartridge you installed is not a brand new one, please be sure to select 2.
WARNING
If ink gets in your eyes, irrigate them with water immediately and call a doctor if you are concerned.
If you wait until Ink Empty message is displayed on the LCD, the machine will automatically reset the ink dot counter.
If the Install message is on the display after you have installed ink cartridges, check that the ink cartridges are
installed properly.

I have replaced all the ink cartridges and my printer says "no cartridge, open scanner cover"


It is probably best to replace cartridges individually as necessary. Let me explain. The printer display will tell you when a cartridge is "xx near empty" and when "xx empty" (where xx is the cartridge color).

1) Near Empty - you can continue to print. This message is to remind you to get a new "xx" cartridge and have it on hand.

Replacing the cartridge when "Near empty" will cause the machine to report "xx Empty" when it is not. It will not register that you have replaced it at "Near empty." Wait to replace the cartridge when you get the "xx empty" message.

2) XX Empty - you may not be able to continue printing. Replace cartridge "xx" now per your manual.

If you have replaced or reseated more than one cartridge, and you get the "no cartridge" error, you need to find out which one the machine "thinks" is problematic:

1) With the scanner cover open and locked in the "Up" position, the message may change to "Change cartridge, install xx" (xx refers to the color )

2) After changing the suspected cartridge and closing the scanner cover, be sure to notice the display. It will say, "Changed XX? 1. Yes 2. No" Press 1.

If all this explanation does not work, keep it in mind for next time. Brother says to unplug the machine for at least 10 seconds, then plug it in again. If the display shows the date and time, problem solved. If not, you may need to contact brother support.

How do i replace cartridge


On the right hand side of your machine-FRONT-right there is a panel that should have come with a sticker on it, you may have taken the sticker off so anyway, it is the ONLY panel on the front right side it just pulls down, put your finger on the rigth side of the machine yhou will feel a little indent and then pull it down, and there are your four ink cartridges. Each cartridge must be replaced individually and on the bottom of the panel you pulled down it will be labeled (B for Black, Y for Yellow, C for Cyan and M for Magenta, and each print cartrdige should also be colored to make it easier as well). Anyhow, you pull the little plastic purple tab that is covering each ink cartridge (in the machine) forward towards you and it should release the cartridge for you to pull out and dispose of) every now and then I have a little trouble and need to use something to help me get started pulling a cartridge forward-just like the tip of a pen or something but you should have no problem with this, and then you put the new cartridge in-the way it says-there should be an arrow on it showing you which way to put it in (also look as you pull the old one out) and as you push the new one in, the plastic tab will click shut and you will hear a "'spray sound". When you are done, close the cover and the machine will first do a "cleaning" before it is ready to be used again. Here is a tip for you as well, this machine WILL NOT WORK if you have any empty ink cartridges, they ALL must have some ink in them for you to print anything, even if you just want to use black, you have to color cartridges as well, I try to use every last bit of color before replacing a cartrdige, I wait until IT MAKES ME REPLACE IT by saying "empty black cartrdige" before I replace it "near empty" is NOT ENOUGH to replace it, mine has been saying "near empty magenta" for weeks now and it still works fine, it just wants me to replace with a new one and waste more money as this ink IS VERY EXPENSIVE, it cost me over $75 to replace all four ink cartridges, the best deal is to get the combo pack with all the colors, or the one with the three colors and then the double black pack. some colors will obviously get used quicker than other colors, so like I said, I have been waiting to replace that "near empty magenta" UNTIL I HAVE TO, as it hs been telling me to do so for weeks now, and I have a replacment in the drawer but once I replace it, it is like throwing money in the garbage since the one that is near empty, is FINE sitting in there while I PRINT OUT BLACK AND WHITE COPIES most of the time anyway, it just won't let you print if ANY of the cartrdiges are ACTUALLY EMPTY, even if you are not using that color, you still cannot have an empty cartrdige or NO cartridge in the machine, it just WIL NOT WORK. GOOD LUCK.

Printer cannot detect new yellow ink, the near empty message on


The Ink sensor sounds like it needs to be replaced. This happens from time to time.

Magenta Near Empty??


This is only a reminder! The cart will show "empty" when it is really empty. You can print on until the printer stopps because of empty cart (and prints on when it is replaced).
Take the new on out and put it in again. answer display question with "1" (Yes, cart changed). "Near empty" Message will disappear.

Ink problems....


Take all carts out of the machine. Have a look into the cart holder. Is there ink swapping beneath the white plastic? (You might shake the machine ;-)

If yes, the cart holder leaks and needs replacement.

If not (your lucky!) it could be that the automatic cleaning procedure which starts when a cart is changed has soaked the carts empty.

Do set machine with date and time and NEVER unplug NOR use a power switch which breaks the power supply.

Do use constant power and switch off machine by pressing stand-by-fax-button!

Everytime when machine comes to (new) power contact it runs an extensive ink cleaning procedure. thats why your carts are always near empty....
The stand-by will prevent this and machine does some cleaning procedures which consumes only a few drops(!) of ink!


The display asks you if you have changed the carts. Do answer this question by pressing 1 for YES or 2 for NO.
This will reset the built-in inkcountermanagement to the correct settings

Printer will not print black.


Try removing the magenta completely and shut the lid then open again then insert the new magenta and see if the ink device level on the PC shows full. Sounds like the system needs resetting. Alternatively change the magenta and power on and off the printer and see if this resets it.
