5100 error

If the Black cart is, indeed, empty then the printer will not print at all (regardless of the condition of the color carts). As for the 5100 error (cart holder blocked) try turning the printer off and then manually moving the holder a short distance. It could be just a little sticky and doing this will free it up also you might check and see if there is anything obstructing the movement of the cartridge ie:paper

hope this helps

HP deskjet F4100 won't print kept saying install cartridge

When you look at the cart. you will see little contact points, the same are in the cart. holder cavity. Sometimes these contact points get ink on them and can not read the cart. Start the process of installing the ink cart. When the holder is positioned to install the cart. -- disconnect the power. This will keep the holder in this position so you may try to clean the contact points. Use a Q-tip and a high alcohol base cleaner. DO NOT SOAK - but dip the Q-tip into the cleaner and then gently rub the tip across the contact points in one direction -- say from left to right -- not back and forth. You should turn the tip after each pass and you may need a couple Q-tip to clean the contact area. After you are done, no more ink on the Q-tip, let the cleaner dry ( about 1 min depending on the alcohol base) then take a dry Q-tip and wipe off haze if any. MAke sure everthing is clean of the area and power on, do ink install process and try to print.

We have a Brother MFC 5840CN. Yellow ink is almost constantly near empty. We fill up at least once a week.

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!

Take all carts out. Have a close look into the cart holder. If you have lost ink it will be beneath the cart holder! That might be because the cart holder leaks. You need a new cart holder then. You have to open the printers top cover, carefully take the holder out, clean the bottom of printer and replace the holder with a new one.

This happens sometimes because the glue which fastens the foil (this is the bottom of the holder!) lost its adhesivness.

New ink cartridge istallation: Brother MFC-240

I guess you d used generic ink carts?!
If yes, the cart holder needs replacement due to ink that has stained the led control. The ink has made a short circuit. The error can only be deleted by replacing the whole cart holder!

Did you lock and secure the latches?

If yes and still this message, do you run generic ink carts?

If yes, the cart holder is stained with ink and the led-controll-board has a short circuit, which cant be fixed!

You need a new cart holder as a spare part!

New refill but runs out of ink after about 8 pages

Did you stich into the ink inlet within the cart holder with a syringe for pressing some air into the tubes? Never do that! Because you have dissolve the bottom of the cart holder or drilled a hole into the bottom.

The cart holder leaks and the poured out ink has already stained the whole machine!

The bottom of the cart holder is a foil which has been sticked onto the hard plastic (clever , eh?). This also happens due to the use of  a wrong refill ink or wrong generic carts the wrong mixture dissolves the foil and ink runs out into the machine....

You need a new cart holder to fix that.
