Question about Brother DCP-385C Stylish Colour Inkjet Multifunction Printer
Hi Barry i find the best way to sort these things out is, to remove the new ink cartridge get a slightly damp cloth, and tap the cartridge till you get some ink on the cloth, then ( this might sound strange ) drop a blob of water into the hole of the cartridge not allot just one little drip then replace it in the printer then do a clean cycle, i have had a 90% success rate at doing this, most of the time all it is , is an air block between the cartridge and the print head, and normally this resolves the problem, make sure you do not put allot of water in the hole just a little blob...hope this helps please vote and rate thanks

Sometimes the ink cartridges get a bit dried out. You can take a soft cloth and isopropyl alcohol and dab the cartridge head, trying to soften the dried ink, and allow it to flow.
On some printers, there are key sequences you can do to try to reset any software that can be "jammed", but I couldn't find any info on the net. You might contact Brother and see if they can give you a key sequence to reset the printer, or know of another way of helping you. Here is Brother's support website:
Good luck, thanks for using FixYa, and hope this helps.
