Hi, I have a brother MFC-J6510D that has worked quite well till now with a refilled cartridge set. The problem is that I did not reset the printer chip when I replaced the cartridges inserting the...


i do not believe this unit has a chip on the printer cartridge. it looks at the level of the ink. take the cartridge out and look at the clear area, do you see ink through it. if not, there is not enough ink in the cartridge to signal the printer that the cartridge is usable.

How to refill brother LC38 cartridge


The cartridge is requires to be refilled immediately when it runs out of ink otherwise the print head gets dried up and becomes unusable.
Remove the ink cartridge; in the front side you'll see a small lever moving in side the transparent cartridge above the ink supply nozel. This is the sensor and tells about the ink quantity in the cartridge.
very carefully make a pin hole in it and use a 5ml syringe filled with "CISS ink" and not ordinary ink. CISS Ink is specially meant for continuous ink supply system and easily available for little higher price than normal ink.
Remember that the side walls of your Brother ink cartridges are made of transparent polythene and hence when injecting the needle of the syringe be careful that it does not go puncture the side walls and goes straight vertically. Injet the ink. Seal the pin hole with wax. You can use burning candle to drop little melted wax over the hole.
The better idea would be to break open a cartridge and see for yourself so that you dont damage the side walls accidentally.
The refillable ink cartridge set is available just for US $ 9.30 shipping paid from eBay.com I am using that set. Be careful Brother would void your warranty if it finds out that you are using refillables.

Unable o clean


HTML clipboardHi If your brother printer has been left unused for some time it is probably clogged? And the inbuilt cleaning facility does not help then you will probably need to buy a Magic Inkjet Flush Print Head Cleaning Kit.

Which you can find on Ebay.

Although it is possible to take the Brother printers apart, it is too difficult for most people.
To view what´s inside a Brother Printer click on next line...
Click again to enlarge photo.
http://magicinkjetflush.com/images/Unclog_Refill_Brother_Printers.jpg
Therefore, what we suggest is to make cleaning cartridges using the Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool...
Then use them to flush the print head (usually at the end of long tubes near to the back of the Brother printer)
*NEVER TOUCH THE WHITE star shaped PIN... under ink cartridges... because once pessed in... it cannot be used !
Also in most cases a single cleaning cartridge for black and 1 for colour is all you will need.
If you only have FULL INKS and need to make a cleaning cartridge use Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool to empty ink cart...
Save the ink in a clean glass jar or similar make cleaning cartridge then once unclogged simply use Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool
to refill with your saved ink.

How to make Brother Cleaning Cartridges
If you wish to see photos? You can also follow the procedure for Epson C80 in the Magic Inkjet Flush Manual.

Using FREE Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool.
To refill Brother inks... or if printer has been left unused and you need to unclog print head? (To make a cleaning cartridges *Fill empties with Magic Inkjet Flush instead of Ink / Then print rectangles using Magic Inkjet to FLUSH print heads once prints appear without white lines simply replace with inks and continue printing rectangles untill all Magic has been flushed out of print head.)

How to refill Empties...
1. Secure empty Brother ink cartridge UPSIDE DOWN in a vice or similar.
2. ONLY HALF fill Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool with warm Magic Inkjet Flush (or correct color Ink if refilling with ink)
3. Then Holding Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool upright... cover metal tip with a tissue and expell any trapped air until ink appears.
4. Insert metal tip into circular ink outlet hole of upturned cartridge... until black rubber makes a GOOD seal.
Holding both securely...
5. Do NOT TRY TO FILL Instead. PULL UP on the plunger of Dr.EpSUN REFILL TOOL.
6. Air will bubble up through the Magic/ink whilst escaping from cartridge creating a vacum.
7. Now... Simply allow plunger to retract and the Magic/ink will automatically refill the cartridge for you.
8. STOP filling before the Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool is empty otherwise air will entering.
9. Repeat until ink cartridge is full.

How to FLUSH a BROTHER print head.

10. Place filled cartridge into printer and you are ready to print.
Use print head cleaning to prime which will also fill the ink tubes... then....
11. Print rectangles of the problem colour(s) using test sheets (see below) to prime ink.

As found in the manual, here are the print test sheets for printing rectangles depending on colour(s) with problem.
Just choose... Yellow, Magenta, Grey Tones etc...

PRINT TEST SHEETS FOR USE WITH MAGIC INKJET FLUSH

Once prints appear to be normal simply replace the Magic Inkjet Flush with ink cartridges and continue printing rectangles untill flushed.

How to refill ink brother mfc-290c, lc38


Trust me, this is the BEST way and the EASIEST way to refill black and color LC61 or LC65 inkjet cartridge from Brother. See the pictures

1. cut the plastic part (see picture). You can use a utility knife or a steak knife (very easy to do)

2. make a hole on the left side (NOT in the midle) and do it straight and don't go deep (see picture)

3. poor the ink with your refill kit and do it straight and don't go deep because the inner side of the cartrigde is made of cheap plastic (like a plastic bag) and you don't want to perforate it

4. put your plug, tape, hot glue or what ever you have to seal the hole.

5. put the cartrigde back in your printer, do a print test and this is it.35f0247.jpg6ac63de.jpg

Can't print pic on glossy photo paper with brother 3in1 printer


First off thanks for using fixya.com

Secondly, it is very difficult to tell exactly which is the problem. I would however put most of my concern in the refill ink. Since it is from a third party and not recommended by the manufacturer this ink may be designed for regular paper only. Ink that is used for photos has a quicker dry time to keep it from running. Since your ink is running it may be that the ink is not designed for photos paper.

You may also be able to drop down your print quality, this will use less ink and may dry faster. This can be access by going into your print settings before printing a photo. With what I have seen in the past, switching over to a manufacturer recommended ink cartridge will probably fix your problem.

I hope this helps you out, but feel free to ask further if needed.

How to Override Ink Level Gauge When Using Refilled Cartridges


Above link great.
If you have a newer print cartridge cart, look for the little window. I put a sticker over the little window on the Brother (innobella) LC38 cartridge cart and it worked great :)
Despite finding a fix for this problem, I think this is a rip off setting on the brother printers and I will never buy another Brother printer for this reason.

Ensure that you are replacing the cartridge with a Brother LC41M ("M" denotes magenta) cartridge instead of replacing it with a "knockoff" (third-party equivalent) or refilling the cartridge. Some third-party inks -- found in many knockoffs and ink refill kits -- do not work well with their intended cartridges and/or print heads. I discovered this the hard way, and then verified it with representatives of HP, Canon and EPSON.

If you have tried two or more actual LC41M cartridges and still receive the Near Empty error message, your unit might need service. Contact Brother Customer Service for further troubleshooting -- see page i of the Users Manual. (Opening the Users Manual with this link requires a PDF viewer such as Acrobat Reader or Foxit Reader.)

Color


I am assuming from your brief problem description that you are getting bad colors when you changed your color cartridge. Are you using a new and certified HP ink cartridge? Are you doing a refill of your old ink cartridge or have bought one of those "re-manufactured" cartridges? The head in the cartridge is very sensitive - when they are damaged or poorly handled - it could result in cross contamination of the color inks. Hence - the brownish color you see could be the result of that cross-contam. My impression is that the remanufactured or older or continously refilled cartridges may be more prone to getting damaged - maybe bec of inherent wear out. Hope this helps.
