SOURCE: Brother MFC 210C series ink replaced

The brother machines require ink in all the cartridges as it is always flushing ink through the heads to "clean" it. This means you must have ink in all cartridges at all times unfortunately or the brother will not work. Even if you could somehow get it to work it could damage your printhead anyway.

Good Luck
Please rate my advice, good or bad.

SOURCE: Is there a way to get Brother MFC-240C to only use black ink cartridge?

Theres a simple trick to cheat the machine.
BUT
you will definitly destroy the printhead when doing so for a longer periode!

You have to put some black adhesive tape around the middle part where you can see this black palstic flag inside the cart. This flag signals the printer that the cart is insert and later on when the ink is down to give the waring: near empty.

I do give you the advice to do another but saver cheating:

You can refill the cart with a mixture of 8 ml destill water and 3ml 85%-Glycerol (e. g. Glycerin alc. which can be bought at a drugstore for a few cents). Shake the mixture well (within the syringe) before refilling the cart.
See pics here how to do so (LC1000):

(brother has changed the construction of the carts! If you can see a plastic quad in the middle of the cart, you have to drill the hole just behind the air valve (white plastic looking out of the cart)

SOURCE: Brother MFC 5840CNZ displays Ink Empty on CYAN when new cartridge is installed

Something that has worked for some Brother owners to get cartridges recognised.

1. With your MFC powered up, open it up and remove the cartridge you are having a problem with, then close the MFC, leaving it powered up. It should report that there is no cartridge in the machine.

Still with the MFC powered up, open it up and reinsert the ink cartridge, then close the MFC. It should either ask if you have replaced a cartridge or go into its cleaning mode.

Answer "yes" to "have you replaced cartridge?" and it should either "print" or "clean" and then "print".

My brother MCF440 cn said that black ink was empty . so i changed it but machine says that black ink catrtridge is empty


  1. Open the ink cartridge cover. Pull the lock release lever down and take out the ink cartridge for the color shown on the LCD.

  1. Reinstall the ink cartridge and lift each lock release lever and push it until it clicks, and then close the ink cartridge cover.

  1. The LCD should then display:
    Did you change xxxxxx? Yes No.
    The LCD should display this question for the color(s) that was replaced.
    BE SURE to select Yes using the up or down arrow key or Dial Pad. If Yes is not selected for the replaced cartridges, INK EMPTY will appear again.
  1. After all the correct selections are made, the machine will then go into a cleaning cycle.

If the LCD displays "No Cartridge", there is a possibility that ink cartridges other than ones you replaced are empty. Follow steps below to check the ink volume. If there are empty ink cartridges, please replace them.

  1. Press Ink or Ink Management.
    * If your Brother machine does not have the Ink or Ink Management key on the control panel, please pressMenu. Press the Up or Down arrow key to select Ink or Ink Management, and then press OK.

  2. Press the Up or Down arrow key to select Ink Volume.
    Press OK.
  3. The LCD shows the ink volume.
    Press the Up or Down arrow key to select the color (colour) you want to check.
  4. Press Stop/Exit.

If the message "No Cartridge" does not disappear, unplug the machine from the AC power outlet and wait approximately 10 seconds, and then plug it back in. If the date and time appear on the display, the issue is resolved.

I just changed my yellow ink and printer is still saying no cartilage need to replace


Hi there,
No Cartridge will show on the display if the machine cannot recognize one of the cartridge or one of the ink is empty. Try to unplug the mach from the power outlet then plug it back in after 10 seconds. If the display show "ink empty C" it means the cyan/blue needs to be replace. "ink empty M" it means the magenta/pink needs to be replace. "ink empty BK" it means that the black needs to replace.
Hope this helps. Rate if it works. Thanks

Hp black cartiedge is low on immediately


When you refill a cartridge, the printer will keep warning you that it is empty- a message pops out that says "low ink". That is because the printer sees the cartridge by it's serial number. The printer can't know that you have refilled the cartridge, so it keeps saying that it is empty. Once you put in a new cartridge, it will display the cartridge as full again.

Changed out black ink screen says insert


It will be a hardware printing problem mostly. Try cleaning the parts with alcogol or/and elastic rubber. Also try to increase the force of contact with a sticky tape or like that.

Brpther DCP 330c does not recognise new black ink cartridge


Usually there is more than one cartridge empty when you receive this kind of problem. Try opening the top cover and check if the display changes - it should change to specify one (or more) of the color cartridges as empty. That one(s) should be changed too.

Epson RX420 new black ink cartridges displaying empty


Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Message: "Ink empty black" --won't reset


this could be because of generic ink carts which do not have the size of the original ones. If so put some paperstrip beneath the cart to lift it up a bit.
Anyway, did you tell the printer that you have changed the cart by pressing 1? Look at the display when you insert the cart!

Re install ink


I know this is a dumb question but did you remove the tape off he bottom of the ink cartridge? Also sometimes if you are using a generic ink cartridge the machine may not recognize it. Make sure the cartridge is seated in properly and that it is in the correct location. (not color spot). Hope this helps. John
