Question about Brother MFC 7300C InkJet Printer
After not using this fax machine for a few months I got this message, Ink empty black, please open cover. So I replaced all the cartridges with new. I still get the message ink empty black, please open cover! Help please...... same thing with mine. didn't use for awhile, and have tried 2 different full cartridges. even tried unplugging and it still won't believe that there is ink. unfortunately, it won't even let the print head clean when it thinks there is no ink, it just keeps doing the same thing. Driving me crazy too!
Have you tried cleaning the connections between the ink cartridge and the printer? Please do this and let me know how it works out for you

Tips for a great answer:
If the LCD displays "No Cartridge", there is a possibility that ink cartridges other than ones you replaced are empty. Follow steps below to check the ink volume. If there are empty ink cartridges, please replace them.
If the message "No Cartridge" does not disappear, unplug the machine from the AC power outlet and wait approximately 10 seconds, and then plug it back in. If the date and time appear on the display, the issue is resolved.

Your machine is equipped with an ink dot
counter. The ink dot counter automatically
monitors the level of ink in each of the 4
cartridges. When the machine detects an ink
cartridge is running out of ink, the machine
will tell you with a message on the LCD.
The LCD will tell you which ink cartridge is low
or needs replacing. Be sure to follow the LCD
prompts to replace the ink cartridges in the
Even though the machine tells you that an ink
cartridge is empty, there will be a small
amount of ink left in the ink cartridge. It is
necessary to keep some ink in the ink
cartridge to prevent air from drying out and
damaging the print head assembly.
a Open the ink cartridge cover.
If one or more ink cartridges are empty,
for example Black, the LCD shows
Ink Empty Black and
b Pull the lock release lever down and
take out the ink cartridge for the color
shown on the LCD.
c Open the new ink cartridge bag for the
color shown on the LCD, and then take

when you open the bag, the cartridge will
not be damaged.
e Each color has its own correct position.
Insert the ink cartridge in the direction of
the arrow on the label.
f Lift each lock release lever and push it
until it clicks, and then close the ink
g If you replaced an ink cartridge, the LCD
may ask you to verify that it was a brand
new one. (For example,
Did You Change Blck?) For each
new cartridge you installed, press 1
(Yes) to automatically reset the ink dot
counter for that color. If the ink cartridge
you installed is not a brand new one, be
sure to press 2 (No).
If you wait until the LCD shows
Near Empty and Ink Empty, the
machine will automatically.
