Re: Brother MFC-3360C cyan ink cartridge replace ment
On the front of the cartridge there is a sight tube for the ink, the fax shines a light through this tube to detect the ink.
I wraped a piece of paper around the tube to block the light beam on all the cartridges.
I dont need a processer to tell me if the machine is out of ink, I can work thay out when it stops printing!!
Now tell me you are out of ink you peice of electronic ****.

Probably the printhead of black cartridge side in the printer is damaged in the worst scenario.Else,just clean the contacts where the black cartridge connects after snapping into the printer,with some cleaning liquid (Nephtha,CCL4)etc.I hope this solves the issue.
look at the ink cartridge and and first see if the ink covers the top of the cartridge. there is a little part of the ink cartridge the best way to explain it, is there is a tab,. that tab goes into a sensor. if the tab has ink on it, then you mostly like have a problem with the sensor itself. but if there is no ink, the printer is correct. i have had several people bring printers with those type of problems, and when they bring the cartridge i look at it, and they are practically empty.
Take all carts out of the machine. Have a look into the cart holder. Is there ink swapping beneath the white plastic? (You might shake the machine ;-)
If yes, the cart holder leaks and needs replacement.
If not (your lucky!) it could be that the automatic cleaning procedure which starts when a cart is changed has soaked the carts empty.
Do set machine with date and time and NEVER unplug NOR use a power switch which breaks the power supply.
Do use constant power and switch off machine by pressing stand-by-fax-button!
Everytime when machine comes to (new) power contact it runs an extensive ink cleaning procedure. thats why your carts are always near empty....
The stand-by will prevent this and machine does some cleaning procedures which consumes only a few drops(!) of ink!
The display asks you if you have changed the carts. Do answer this question by pressing 1 for YES or 2 for NO.
This will reset the built-in inkcountermanagement to the correct settings
