E-02 Error "Replace Ink Cartridge"

I haven't use my printer for months and I remember that there are still yellow, cyan and black ink and no blue ink when I stopped using the printer. Now, I will use it, it said that I need to replace all the ink. So, I replaced it with the original inks but the error still persists. I need to replace ink. Meaning, it did not recognize the ink I replaced. I tried to remove it and place it back again. But still the problem is the same. What will I do to fix the problem?

After you have installed the new ink, take it out again, and check that the hole has been pierced. Then, shake the ink by giving it a quick suck until some ink comes out, and then replace the cartridge into the printer. This worked for us anyway. Good luck!

SOURCE: Brothers MFC885cw can't recognize new cartridge

I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink or toner cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled (the absolute worst possible choice) or third party cartridges (2nd. Worst possible choice) that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks or toner causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead or photo conductors.
If you are using factory new ink or toner cartridges, then please call the manufacturer’s Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Hi. Most ink cartridges are cyan magenta yellow and black. You do have to have all cartridge installed for it to work. If it's been sitting for a while ink dries and can cause all kinds of little problems. The ink cartridges have little contacts on them you might have to clean these with a cotton swab and alcohol. But if the ink has dried in the print head you have to clean all the little ink ports on the head.

Is it possible to use non HP ink in ths printer? Tried using "remanufactured ink", and concluded that this printer may be programed to block the use of NON HP INK.


It is always recommended to use genuine HP cartridges.
As if we will use the non HP or refilled cartridges, it will reduce the life of the printer.
And we will get an error "cartridge problem".
Plaese use the below cartridges, which are compatible with this printer.

Only prints in green and blue


You are more than likely out of magenta (red) ink. That printer uses a tri-color cartridge, and it has cyan (blue) magenta (red) and yellow ink. Green is blue + yellow-therefore you do have those two colors; since it will not print anything red or black you will need to replace both cartridges.

What is cyan ink


It must be referring to the cyan color cartridge.

"Cyan" refers to the blue-green color cartridge.

Most printers have either 2 cartridges (black and multicolor), or 4 cartridges( black, magenta, yellow, and cyan).

See here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyan

Hope this helps.
