My all in one says that I needed to replace my black ink cartridge, but after I did, it continues to say that I need to replace the ink cartridge. It apparently is not accepting the cartridge. My friend says that I have to contact you to get a code number to put into the all-in-one for it to accept the cartridge, but someone else told me that I have to replace all 4 cartridges at the same time because there is a light sensor inside that won't allow the thing to work at all if there is any light coming through at all. What do I do?

Hi, The nozzle may be blocked. So take out the colour cartridge and place its nozzle in a bit of water for about 10 mins. Bring it out and dab the nozzle with folded paper. If the tissue is blotted with the three colour it means you have unblocked the nozzle. Try now to print after returning the colour cartridge. You may need to repeat to get good results. Thank you!!
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. Instructions 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.

On the clear side of the cartridge, put a piece of electrical tape to
cover the center plastic bar that sticks out. For some reason these
printers have a big problem with sensing ink levels. The tape lets the
sensor think the cartridge float inside is up, meaning a full
cartridge. The sensors seem to have difficulty reading where the black
float is inside the cartridge.
Here's a permanent fix. Basically you cut the wire to the ink sensor. You can no longer see the ink levels, but that didn't matter anyway, as it was incorrect before! First of all, TURN OFF THE POWER TO YOUR PRINTER. Then lift up the scanner and remove the three screws along the top of the control panel. With a bit of force, snap-up the most inner two
My yellow cartridge was doing the same thing as your black. So I took the cartridge out, and took a flashlight to see how it works. There is like a little straw on the right hand side which goes up into the printer cartridge, this I assume is to measure the ink. I took a needle and cleaned that 'straw' thoroughly. Reseated the ink, ran cleaning and test print, and then the printer found the yellow ink! You could give that a try. It might work for you too. (I have never used any ink but Brother ink in the printer, btw.)
I guess you d used generic ink carts?! If yes, the cart holder needs replacement due to ink that has stained the led control. The ink has made a short circuit. The error can only be deleted by replacing the whole cart holder!
