Be carefull!

It might be that the cart holder is defective:

the ink is beneath the holder and will stain your funiture!

You have to open the printer and have to replace the cart holder!

Your printer mixes colors even with black, you must have ink in all carts.

MFC-5840CN "unable to clean" and "machine code 50"


you have to fix the encoder strip into right position within the ph carrier! do push the head left/right to see if there are waves infront of it. if so, fix the strip into position!

BTW:

If you refill your carts use 2ml glycerol (from drugstore) with 10ml dye-ink: mix well before refilling. For bk use 1,5ml glycerol with 20ml bk dye-ink.

The glycerol prefents the ph/nozzels and tubesystem from drying up!

DCP 117C Brother ink jet printer: Although ink cartridge is filled, is showing black nearly empty error message. No black is getting through on test printing after head cleaning procedure.


two diffrent errors:

1. near empty. I guess your cart is at full level.: Take cart out. unplug dcp from power. leave scanner open. replug to power. machine will come up and demanding cart. insert cart. close cover. answer display if its changed!

2. press menu then start bk-copy then four times arrow up. machine will be in maintenance mode. press by help of arrow-up and set: 7 (set) 6 (set) 3 (set) start bk-copy. machine will do a power purge cleaning. when finished press 9 (set) 9 to leave maintenance mode. run a test print and set date/time again!

Brother MFC 210C series ink replaced


The brother machines require ink in all the cartridges as it is always flushing ink through the heads to "clean" it. This means you must have ink in all cartridges at all times unfortunately or the brother will not work. Even if you could somehow get it to work it could damage your printhead anyway.

Good Luck
Please rate my advice, good or bad.
