Brother DCP 115C

Are the cartridges of this model refillable? I tried to refill these through a hole once and ended up in the service station, lol.

    Yes, I refill them myself in my DCP115. The hole must be about 1/4 inch below the upper left side of the transparent face of the cartridge. Initiate cleaning after installation of the cartridges and test the print quality and alignment. You will have to do the cleaning often depending on the quality of your ink.

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

I have a printer dcp 7030 brother company i am showing problem toner life end after reffling


I just had this problem and fixed it. The original toner cartridge that comes with the printer cannot be reset. You have to buy at least one new cartridge. The reason is that the original cartridge that comes with the printer doesn't have a reset flag. You can, however, refill/reset a cartridge that you buy separately. Pull out the drum and lift the cartridge out of the drum. Hold the handle and look on the left end. You should see a crescent shaped hole with a white flag/lever. To reset this, move the white flag all the way to the left (I had to use something to push it). Put it back into the printer and voila - it fixes itself. Then, after the printer has been reset, you can use the original cartridge again, if you want. The flag part won't matter once the printer has been reset. I hope this is clear. I know it worked for me, and I had the exact same problem.

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.

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

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

Brother Toner Refills


Yeah you can refill your cartridge. It is really easy and consists of removing the plug on the side of the cartridge, dumping out any old toner and dumping in the new toner. Its very easy. I have purchased refill kits from both of these sites in the past and its worked great:

www.tonerrefillstore.com

www.lasertekservices.com

They also have great customer service. I hope this helps!

How to reffil brother inkjet cartridge printer DCP 165


Trust me, this is the BEST way and the EASIEST way to refill black and color LC61 or LC65 inkjet cartridge from Brother. See the pictures

1. cut the plastic part (see picture). You can use a utility knife or a steak knife (very easy to do)

2. make a hole on the left side (NOT in the midle) and do it straight and don't go deep (see picture)

3. poor the ink with your refill kit and do it straight and don't go deep because the inner side of the cartrigde is made of cheap plastic (like a plastic bag) and you don't want to perforate it

4. put your plug, tape, hot glue or what ever you have to seal the hole.

5. put the cartrigde back in your printer, do a print test and this is it.62663ac.jpg50fb605.jpg

Refilled black cartridge put back but dcp115 tells me to reinstal


there is a chip inside the cartridge that the printer firmware now failed to detect it. It is usually happen with refilled cartridge.

Try to find in the web "DCP 115 Reseter Software"
You can try Printer Resetter Software before you replace with the new original one (its the last option)

Refer to outline maintenance chaper in trouble shoot manual for brother DCP115c


Ok, could be one or more of the refills were faulty, I would suggest exchanging them, or checking with the refill center to see if they can be tested(most good refill centers have testing equipment).

If they are unable to test them or refund/exchange them, try a new factory set and iff they work try replacing each one, one at a time with the refills. This way you can at least determine which one(s) are faulty and use the rest.


Hope this is more helpful,

Chris
