My Brother LC61, bought in Nov.2010, won't print black. Recently replaced black ink along with all color inks...replaced black ink again when it quit printing...still won't work. Machine whirs...


This is common problem with Brother Printers. I am going to assume you are using Non-Brother branded ink cartridges. Brother cartridges have a cleanser in the ink that most generic cartridges don't have. This in turn causes the jets to clog and not allow ink to pass through them. The fix is to go buy a couple of Brother cartridges and do a cleaning with those cartridges. You may spend some money doing this as a cleaning wastes a lot of ink, but it will clean the injection lines and fix the printer. You could also consider buying a new printer. I know this is not the answer you were looking for, but it is the true answer. I just bought a new printer due to this fact.

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

This error generally means that your cartridge chips cannot be recognized. The primary causes are: Covering of the LED at the back of the chip (by ink?). Incorrect chip positioning on the cartridge.The LED on one or more of the cartridges has been damaged if removed from original cartridge.The Chips have been mixed up, if removed and replaced, the wrong Chip has gone on the wrong color. And lastly Ink is covering the cartridge chip or a sensitive area of the cartridge and preventing the LED light sensor from functioning. ( my problem)

Cartridge? problem


If you are using or have used third party generic ink cartridges or refilled ink cartridges, the Cartridge Sensor printed circuit board may have been damaged. We have found that some third party generic ink cartridges leak onto the ink cartridge sensor circuit board causing an electrical short of the ink cartridge sensors. The damage from the leaked ink results in the machine displaying NO CARTRIDGE because the machine will no longer recognize the installed ink cartridge(s). Genuine Brother ink cartridges do not cause this issue because of the unique design developed to fit specifically in the Brother products. As long as a Brother cartridge has not been refilled, the Brother cartridge will not leak.

Ink cartridge won't click in place


no. the ink has stained the led-control board. If the printer is in warranty call brother. If not, you need a new cartholder as a spare part.

Brother mfc215c cartridge problem


Sorry to hear that. Brother's have alot of problems with this sort of thing. Just so you know, I even called Brother and they said you're model printer didn't exist. What a joke. I said if it doesn't exist then how come I'm looking at a manual on my screen as we speak for that model printer that I downloaded from their site. They still told me it doesn't exist. I said then maybe we're not really talking on the phone! Again, sorry about the printer. If you have any other problems or just need advice feel free to ask. That's why I'm here. Just for you! How about giving me a 4 fix ya rating for old time sake? Give a shout if you need anything.

Brother mfc215c cartridge/ink problem


then check the led control board. is it still plain to the plastic of the holder or is it pushed out of position. If so open printer and simply click it back into positon.

Ink


Did you lock and secure the latches?

If yes and still this message, do you run generic ink carts?

If yes, the cart holder is stained with ink and the led-controll-board has a short circuit, which cant be fixed!

You need a new cart holder as a spare part!

Does not accept black ink cartridges


Did you use generic ink? These generic carts are different (no seal to prevent staining). This carts stain the led control circuit board which has to be replaced by a new one (the spare part is only avaiable as the whole ink cart holder incl. led board and tubes).

There is no way to do a short fix, sorry!
