Brother MFC9420CN Toner Error-Incompatible Toner Detected

I refilled the black cartridge on my Borther MFC9420CN printer. It worked great for awhile. But all of a sudden one day it stopped printing and gave an error code (Toner Error-Incompatible toner detected).

When I removed the cartridges, black toner was everywhere. The cap was very loose when I replaced it, and it had fallen into the cartridge.I fished it out and reseated it.

I have rebooted, taken the cartridges out. I continue to get the same error.

I called Brother and they told me to replace the cartidge. Those things cost $169. That is why I refilled it in the first place.

My best guess is that there is a preset on the cartridge, or on the machine, that will allow only a certain number of prints per cartridge so that the Brother Cartridge Mafia can extort more money out of people by making them throw away a perfectly good cartridge.

Can anyone tell me how to get around buying a new cartridge?

Since this machine takes TN04 cartridges, and there are no chips or anything, do a reset.From memory press 1 and 7 together, then 1.

Ok i hit 1& 7 at the same time and pressed 1 to reset opc belt, then i hit 2 and 8 at the same time and pressed 1 to reset fuser. i took each of the catridges out vacum cleaner them and then on the right side rotated the cylinder a few times to ensure they were locked as i notticed some toner being released. (did this for all toner cartridges). I then put them back in and the system reset and strated printing. I believe the later cleaning and rotatiing the cylinder of the catrridge did the trick. Hope this is helpful.

I replaced all of the cartridges with Epson, but the black won't print. After some nozzle checks, black is getting low and STILL no black printing occurring... what going on? Now the other colors are...


Nozzle cleaning uses a lot of ink, that's probably why the other ink cartridges are registering low on ink. Are you using refilled cartridges or brand new? Also, have you had the cartridges for awhile? I've found that the nozzles can become clogged either from not using the printer for awhile or because it's a recycled cartridge that didn't have the nozzles cleaned before it was refilled. When that happens, unfortunately, sometimes it takes a lot of cleaning cycles before the printing comes back. Let me know more about the cartridges you have.

I installed a refilled HP 94 cartridge in my HP PSC 2355 All-in-One printer. It worked well for several weeks but then I suddenly got the following Error Messages: "Incorrect Cartridge - Black ink...


This is a firmware issue with this printer model, and is fairly common. Try the following: remove both of the print cartridges, close the lid, wait for any noises to stop, and pull the power plug out of the back of the printer while it is still on. Wait at least 10 minutes with the cord disconnected. Plug the power back into the printer, wait for the noises to stop, and then reinstall the cartridges, black first (very important), and then the color. This will force the printer to reload its ram memory and should take care of the glitch. Let me know if you need further assistance, as I would like to be sure your problem is fixed.

Canon MP470: "Print Head is not installed. Install Print Head"


Some printer brands have a cute scheme that reads a "new" cartridge as good, but the refilled one has a small fuse link that is burned out by the printer. Try factory new cartridges. Unplug the printer power for a bit to reset the printer.

Refilled cartridge not printing


Try to cartridge manually ,please follow the instructions :

# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

Refilled color cartridge for lexmark Z845


The only work around to this is to use two catridges(2 color and 2 black and white). The reason is the printer has a mechanism to check if the same catridge is being used again. SO when you have two cartridges when one is finished refill the other and use and vice-versa. This way you will be able to refill and use for ever without any problems..

Black cartridge not printing


This is what worked (so far) with my Dell1.gif AIO A940 printer1.gif that wouldn't print black ink.

It worked for awhile when I chose photo/glossy paper, but then it quit printing again (see below).

PRINT, PROPERTIES, PAPER SETUP, SPECIALTY PAPER, PHOTO/GLOSSY


I got it to print, again, by putting SEVERAL papers in the feeder (instead of just 1) - there is a sensor that is supposed to automatically detect paper type, and it might not be working right, especially with one or only a couple of sheets.

Flashing ink refill light


Sometimes refilling them over and over doesn't work well. Once ok...but i suggest that you buy a new cartridge. I know that they are expensive but it will help. Also take some Rubbing alchohol and a q-tip...clean inside where the cartridge sits..that will help...this is for sure a bad ink cartridge
