You need to use only cartridge brother original,if you use refill cartridge the printer is not printing.You need to replace the print head of the printer because you use refill cartridges.In the future use only genuine Brother cartridges.If a have been useful please give me a vote :)

Printer not recongnising new cartridge


It is because it is not a true cartridge from Brother MFC295CN AllInOne InkJet Printer. I too have experienced this lately. Used to have cartridges refilled at Cartridge World and because they were original cartridges with liquid refil they worked. Since Cartridge World has stopped refilling and just replaces with seemingly the same thing, but they are not, they are rejected by the printer. False economy now and Cartridge World are going to find themselves out of business eventually. It's a way of putting a stop to cloning.

Unable o clean


HTML clipboardHi If your brother printer has been left unused for some time it is probably clogged? And the inbuilt cleaning facility does not help then you will probably need to buy a Magic Inkjet Flush Print Head Cleaning Kit.

Which you can find on Ebay.
http://tinyurl.com/yfx2y5k
Although it is possible to take the Brother printers apart, it is too difficult for most people.
To view what´s inside a Brother Printer click on next line...

http://magicinkjetflush.com/images/Unclog_Refill_Brother_Printers.jpg
Therefore, what we suggest is to make cleaning cartridges using the Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool...
Then use them to flush the print head (usually at the end of long tubes near to the back of the Brother printer)
*NEVER TOUCH THE WHITE star shaped PIN... under ink cartridges... because once pessed in... it cannot be used !
Also in most cases a single cleaning cartridge for black and 1 for colour is all you will need.
If you only have FULL INKS and need to make a cleaning cartridge use Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool to empty ink cart...
Save the ink in a clean glass jar or similar make cleaning cartridge then once unclogged simply use Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool
to refill with your saved ink.

How to make Brother Cleaning Cartridges
If you wish to see photos? You can also follow the procedure for Epson C80 in the Magic Inkjet Flush Manual.

Using FREE Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool.
To refill Brother inks... or if printer has been left unused and you need to unclog print head? (To make a cleaning cartridges *Fill empties with Magic Inkjet Flush instead of Ink / Then print rectangles using Magic Inkjet to FLUSH print heads once prints appear without white lines simply replace with inks and continue printing rectangles untill all Magic has been flushed out of print head.)

How to refill Empties...
1. Secure empty Brother ink cartridge UPSIDE DOWN in a vice or similar.
2. ONLY HALF fill Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool with warm Magic Inkjet Flush (or correct color Ink if refilling with ink)
3. Then Holding Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool upright... cover metal tip with a tissue and expell any trapped air until ink appears.
4. Insert metal tip into circular ink outlet hole of upturned cartridge... until black rubber makes a GOOD seal.
Holding both securely...
5. Do NOT TRY TO FILL Instead. PULL UP on the plunger of Dr.EpSUN REFILL TOOL.
6. Air will bubble up through the Magic/ink whilst escaping from cartridge creating a vacum.
7. Now... Simply allow plunger to retract and the Magic/ink will automatically refill the cartridge for you.
8. STOP filling before the Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool is empty otherwise air will entering.
9. Repeat until ink cartridge is full.

How to FLUSH a BROTHER print head.

10. Place filled cartridge into printer and you are ready to print.
Use print head cleaning to prime which will also fill the ink tubes... then....
11. Print rectangles of the problem colour(s) using test sheets (see below) to prime ink.

As found in the manual, here are the print test sheets for printing rectangles depending on colour(s) with problem.
Just choose... Yellow, Magenta, Grey Tones etc...

PRINT TEST SHEETS FOR USE WITH MAGIC INKJET FLUSH

http://magicinkjetflush.com/Ebay/Print_Test_Magenta.jpg

Once prints appear to be normal simply replace the Magic Inkjet Flush with ink cartridges and continue printing rectangles untill flushed.

I don't have no more ink and i want to replace it


You'll need 4 different cartridges for this printer.

LC51Y, LC51M, LC51C, LC51BK
According to the manufacturer, you only need to replace the one that is out.

Here is a link to the manual so you can see how to change the ink.

Page 6 will tell you what you ink level is and page 59 tells you how to replace them.

How to refill Brother MFC 420CN ink cartridge?


I wouldn't recommend refilling cartridges anymore. Nowadays printers come with a sensor which tell it which cartridges were used and refilled. Also do not use generic cartridges. Always buy genuine cartridges. Will save you a lot of headache in the long run...Trust me.

Refill instructions for cartridge LC51Y for a brother all in one


These printer cartridges are very hard to fill without special equipment. I suggest that you might buy refilled cartridges from the following: www.monstertoners.com You can purchase a package that includes 4 black and two each of the three colors for $39.95 plus s/h.

How to Override Ink Level Gauge When Using Refilled Cartridges


Above link great.
If you have a newer print cartridge cart, look for the little window. I put a sticker over the little window on the Brother (innobella) LC38 cartridge cart and it worked great :)
Despite finding a fix for this problem, I think this is a rip off setting on the brother printers and I will never buy another Brother printer for this reason.

Buy "compatible" or "alternative" cartridges, they are cheap and cleaner than refilling the cartridges by yourself.
