Hi- I posted just now, after trying your method for @ 45 min- no luck- the cart. I am using is a color, and less than 6 mo. old- still no go- any more encouragement you can give me will be appreciated-- hate to take a chance on paying 34.00 for a new HP cart- have 2 that are full weight- as is the one in there now- hmmm?
Did you set the date back in your system tray on your computer to something like 040704? Try taking out the cartridge and then unplugging the USB cord and the printer from the electrical outlet. You have to have the printer turned totally off with no connection to your computer. Make sure you have the date set back on your computer before you put the USB and electrical cords back in place. That printer will know it is the current date otherwise. Then with USB and power cords in place put in the cartridge and give it a try. If no go, you might try taking out that one and unplugging everything and then replugging and replacing with the second cartridge. I have read somewhere that the machine can remember 2 cartridges, so you may need a third, but I did not when I set the date back on my computer. Good luck with this. Let me know how it goes. I am still printing with my original color cartridge; it has been refilled twice since I originally figured out how to fool my printer. And that old black Office Depot one is going strong too.

hello, you are using the photo color ink cart, have you tried running a cleaning cycle or test print, the reason why i ask, is that maybe 1 of the colors is not printing, the test pages would prove what color is missing, if black not printing, it would print possible blue, or no black at all. i know you have put in new inks, but since the volume of ink in these cartridges run out according to usage, one color might run out before the others, and since black and yellow are the most used colors, without them your prints will show color faults.

Use the arrow keys to select Tools and then press the OK button.
Select Clean Print Cartridge and then press OK . The device prints a test page.
Examine the test page. If the print quality of the page is good, stop here. If the print quality is bad, go on to the next step for further cleaning.
Open the Printer Toolbox . There are two ways to do this:
Open HP Director , select the Settings menu, then the Print Settings submenu, and finally the Printer Toolbox .
If the HP Director method does not work, open Printers and Faxes in the Windows Control Panel , then right-click your printer icon and choose Properties . Click on Printing Preferences . Click the Services tab, then the Service This Device icon.
The Printer Toolbox opens. On the Device Services tab, click Clean the Print Cartridges , then follow the on-screen instructions. Up to three levels of cleaning are available. Discard or recycle the page that prints.
Remove and re-insert, while the product is switched on.
Try this it may help, if the ink are dried no matter what you try clean it will not print , take hair dryer and blow the air on the walls of the cart for 2 min and then insert the cart back and check if it prints ....
First printing a photo takes lots of ink , it depends on the color of the photo , cyan is blue which maybe consumed more in the printing or there changes that the ink may have dried in the cart hence your getting this error ,remove cart take damp paper towel and hold the paper on the place where ink comes out gently for 20 second ,make it does not touch copper contact it may damage the cart ,make sure you check the place where ink with dry paper its usually bottom of the cart and repeat the above step with dry paper towel and try to print if you get the same error then you need to replace the cart or you can contact brother support and get cart replaced , once cart is used you need print once in week to keep cart from drying, you can use any photo paper which is compatible with printer .
Do print until the message EMPTY (Printer stopps printing).
DO NOT refill or change cart when message is shown: NEAR EMPTY!
You fool the printers logic. Machine counts down the rest of the ink in the cart. When you refill at that moment the counter is disoriented!
To clear the counter:
Unplug powercord. Take carts out. Wait 3 min. Plug in power. Machine demands carts. Do use carts at full level (refill before you put them in). Works normal afterwards.
