Question about Brother DCP 115C All-In-One InkJet Printer
I purchased two brother 115c printers at the same time. Both started this problem at the same time. Approx 8 months from purchase. I gets used heaps other hardly at all. problem in says no ink cartridge or empty for cyan and magenta. Mucked around and got both to go once by unplugging and then running cleaning function. Now however one won't allow anything. just says replace cartridge. Using Brother cartridges.
SOURCE: Only printing black and cyan
If you have used third party carts before you can't repair this problem due to the fact that the filter inside the printhead is clogged with particles. There is no chance to clean the filter. Sorry. Do use only dye ink. Pigmented ink is the printhead killer for brother printers!

This could be because of several probs: 1. The ink cart is not original and wont let the ink flow, because the valve is not open. 2. There might be air bubbles within the capillaries. 3. The ink is not genuine ink and has pigments in it. Solution: see here, too: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/faq/faq_top.htm?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=dcp110c_us Insert another ink cart. Use, if possible, the genuine ink cart from brother. Do the cleaning cycle twice. This will extract the air bubbles out of the caps after the second time. If you dont have any success the printhead is clogged and cant be cleaned anymore!

Did you change the scanner cover? This happens when a wrong cis type is installed. The rom data has to be set again (this can only be done by service personal)

I have same problem. It started off as empty ink and low ink so I replaced first the black, did a test print then even though the other one yellow was still unchanged low the test print came out as black fine, cyan fine but yellow and magenta blank. Because it was blank and reading low I changed the yellow anyway but its still blank. After lots of tests and cleans magenta and yellow still remained blank. Now the cyan is near empty and the magenta even though nothing has been printed. I took them out many times to see if it will get it working tried all the above suggestions and anyway its now started saying no cartridge. I'm not using orig brother ink and don't expect it to be as good but not to print some colours at all is a bit odd. Cant get round this no cartridge thing though, machine has hardly been used so I'm disappointed if its had it.

Your print head is stuffed. More expensive than new machine, Release your frustration with this unit by placing neatly in bin!
