There is a problem with your cartridge and the head of your printer, because if the software is telling you that the cartridge is full therefore it could be an hardware issue, i suggest that you should try to removing and reinstalling the cartridge, if that step still dont work then bring it to a service technician and ask them to clean the head of your printer!

Hope this one works!
But i know it will work. Be Positive!
Your good rating will be very much appreciated.

Good luck and thank you!

The black ink on my Brother DCP-130C won't print and it's a brand new ink cartridge. I thought it was a defected cartridge so I bought another one, same thing. The other 3 colours print ok though....


I have the same problem. Everything on the printer is working just fine. It'll do a test page just fine, so everything's working right. The %$^ thing just won't print. It makes noise like it's printing when you give it a print job, but it spits out blank pages.

Hi There, I have a brother DCP-130c printer and one of the colour ink has run out. I need to be able to print with just black. Is there a way to print without replacing colour ink?


When you click on print, click on print preferences. As shown in image below.

On the preferences window click on Paper Quality tab and click on black and white. As shown below.

Click on OK and then click on print.



Note: Few new printers wont print till you replace the empty cartridges.

Regards,

Have two Brother DCP-145C printers and use compatible inks. Now the yellow won't print in either machine. Despite trying cleaning cycles and replacing the yellow cartridges, the test print will not show...


100% you need to replace the print head,in the future use only original cartrige brother not refill or compatible cartridge.If you want to replace the print head you need to take care is difficult to change the print head,you must to unzip the all printer.If a have been useful please give me a vote.

When printing colour pictures they appear with greenish hue and there is no red at all...


For some reason it's not printing with the magenta ink. If you were out of that color it would tell you, so either all the magenta nozzles are clogged, or the printhead has gone bad.
At the top of the control panel is a button labeled Ink Management (or just Ink). Press that and choose Cleaning. Some machines will allow you to clean only certain colors - you want Magenta. When it's done, print a test page - also in the Ink Management menu. If it's improved, do it again until all the dots print for each color. Inkjet machines clean their nozzles by blasting them out with ink. If you're low on ink you should have spare cartridges ready to swap.
If no magenta prints at all, but the other colors are fine, your printhead has failed. If the machine is less than a year old it's a warranty repair, see Brother's website for the closest service center. If it's just past warranty, call Brother's customer service line and beg for a Work Order to be sent to a service center to cover your machine. Note that they will insist that your ink cartridges be genuine Brother brand before doing free repairs for ink problems.
If it's out of warranty, a repair would probably cost more than a new DCP 130C. Good luck.

Brother DCP-130C refuses to print the magenta ink


If you don't print at least once a month, you will clog the machine. You unfortunately have to get it fixed by a professional or get a new printer. Sorry!
