Question about Brother MFC 240C All-In-One InkJet Printer
Replaced ALL ink cartridges
when i replaced, the black was OUT, the rest were low. used real bro ink. now it's telling me same error it did before replaceing -
BLACK INK OUT, low ink (other 3 colors)
i thought i've tried every solution i found, but alas... no luck.
if i take out the black ink, and re-insert, it tells me INSTALL INK CARTRIDGE. i have to unplug system and plug back in for it to revert to anythign else (which happens to be NO BLACK INK, LOW INK (other colors))
Your printer detects ink levels with an optical sensor that shines at the clear plastic in the center of the bottom of the cartridge. Once this area is no longer dark it will tell you to replace the ink. Since you installed full cartridges it could be that the sensor is cracking up. Another possibility is that you could have air in the ink lines that run between your cartridges and the print head. When this happens the printer cannot print the color that has air in the lines. You should be able to look in your printer to see the ink lines and see if there is air in the black one.
