Keeps on saying cannot detect ink


Hi,

if your Brother's printer is anything like mine, it won't print in any color (or black/white) if any one ink cartridge is empty. I just put any color cartridge I had in the empty slot to force it to print black and white.


Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

Printer keeps telling me that the yellow cart is empty and I have put a new one in


Are you positive it says the yellow cart is empty? Because that brother printer is designed to say that a cartridge is empty whenever ANY of the color cartridges are empty. Usually it doesn't tell you which one is really empty either. So even if you replaced the yellow cartridge and say, the black cartridge is empty, it still won't let you print until you replace that empty black cartridge, nor will you know which of the cartridges is empty unless you pull them out of the printer and manually check the ink levels.

Its pretty much a guessing game with those old brother ink printers.

Hope this helps :)

No cartridge the printer say. i put new cartridge in


It mean that the black cartridge is not recognised. It the black cart is original or compatible? Some printer won't recognise cartridge, if the black and colour is not same type. Try to install the black only. Is it recognised?

Hi, my Brother DCP-115C Brother printer keeps telling me my black ink is empty despite putting brand new cartridges in, can you offer any help. Thanks.


Black electrical tape is the answer and it’s because the tape is BLACK. Even if u put black tape on an empty cartage the printer will still try to print.

The tape goes on the side of the cartage that faces the back of the printer (where the sensor must be).

Brother MFC 210C All-in-One Ink Cartridges


near empty message is a reminder: plz buy a new cart (but do NOT change until EMPTY). You still can print.

the ink left in an empty cart keeps the system alive when some ink is neede for the automatic cleaning cycle.
If you print until this cart is really empty air will get into the tubes and ph. That leads to faulty printings.
brother had made sure that the amount of printable ink can be consumed. The rest is for service.

No ink display on brother mfc240c


First make sure that you are using Brother Cartridges, their machines are very sensitive to using generic ink. Put a brand new set of ink in the machine. Pull all the old cartridges out and put all new cartridges in. If this does not resolve the issue contact Brother, they are very good about helping their customers.
