Question about Brother DCP-110C All-In-One InkJet Printer

Black ink full won't print on pages

Hi. I moved a few weeks ago. I was super careful with this printer.
When I hooked it up, it wouldn't print. Kept telling me I needed ink replaced==
not black one, 2 others. Took awhile to figure out how to reset that as neither was even slightly used.
So now I have important paperwork and someone coming here to sign it
and I can't get it to print.
How do I trouble shoot it?
Thanks
Beah

    Black won't print.  Changed all ink cartridges, other colors print but not black.

    The printer printed great until I got my first "near empty" message. I've changed all the ink and I still get the message and printing is horrible. I've used the clean option many time too. I don't know what to now. Help!

    my brother dcp-100c worked a few months ago before i went away. i came bk two weeks ago, and have recently found that my black ink does not print. i changed the cartridge to a full one and it still does not print out documents in black. if i go to my properties for my document, and set it to black, it comes out in colour. my colour ink is working fine, and the printer even registers my black ink as full on the ink management but im soooo confused. ive cleaned the inside where the cartridges go many times, ive got the printer to clean the ink at least 20 times. i just need a solution!

Here is resource page and "No cartridge " error info:
http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/faq/faq_top.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=dcp110c_us

Why does my machine's LCD show "NO CARTRIDGE" even though I have already installed all the ink cartridges?
Description:
If the message "NO CARTRIDGE" remains on the LCD after you have installed the ink cartridges, then one or more of the cartridges may not be properly installed. Verify that the cartridges are installed correctly by following these steps:


Note

    Cartridges that have already been installed are no longer vacuum-sealed, so it is very important that these cartridges remain upright. If a cartridge is removed from the machine and placed on its side, air may be introduced into the ink supply tubes. As a result, repeated cleaning will likely be required before normal print quality is restored.

  1. Unplug the machine from the AC power outlet, wait approximately 10 seconds and then plug it back in.
    If the date and time appear on the display, the issue is resolved. If the display continues to show NO CARTRIDGE, continues to Step 2.

  2. Open the scanner cover by lifting it from the right-hand side until it locks securely into the open position.

  3. Remove the black ink cartridge by pulling the white plastic hook (locked over the edge of the ink cartridge) toward you, then lifting the cartridge out.

  4. The LCD should prompt you to install the black ink cartridge.

  5. Reinstall the black cartridge. Press down FIRMLY on the top of the cartridge until it is fully seated. Push the white plastic hook towards the cartridge to verify it is fully latched over the cartridge's top edge. Repeat STEPS 2 - 4 to verify each that of the color cartridges (magenta, cyan and yellow) is installed properly, then continue to STEP.

  6. Close the scanner cover. The unit should begin cleaning automatically.
  7. Good luck, Joe

I have enough black ink to print a few pages in black, but the printer won't print. What do I do?


I had a Epson printer that would not print or even allow me to use the scanner because the colored ink was out. Even though I had full black ink, it still would not let me print until i replaced the colored ink.

New ink cartridge only last less than two weeks after printing less than 30 pages


I had that model and the same experience. I kept buying ink until I realized I could have nearly bought the printer for nearly the same cost as ink refills, black and color. I also had an HP. Same thing. I finally bought the Kodak 3250. The ads about ink costs was so correct. Many more pages are printed before the "need ink" message is displayed. Buying ink online saves even more.

Hi I am not getting any Red from my printer


It's possible magenta ink to be finished, or the print head is dirty and it has dry ink on it. You must clean it with hot water. You must use the printer from time to time to avoid to dry the ink cartridge or print head.

Changed the drum & ink cartridge in HL-1440-ink bleeds on edge


Hi there,

This problem is often caused by spilled toner. Open the printer, carefully remove the cartridge, and give it a few bursts of compressed air. Often running several pages or type through will also fix this. If it persists, replace the toner cartridge.

Hope this initial info/idea helps. Let me know for any clarifications.

Printer has been idle for several weeks.When I came to use it the printing is broken and faded looking.How do I clean the cartridges?


HP Deskjet 5550 Printer.

The deskjet printers should not be kept idle.

At least once in two or three days, you can take one page print out.

This has to be done, otherwise, the inks both Black and colour will get frozened and sometimes it will become dry at the catridge mouth.

Black Ink is 56 and Colour is 57.

Solution :

01. Manually remove both catridges from the printer carefully.

02. Shake the catridges with full force pointing towards ground. You can find out now, that ink is coming out from the catridges which was frozen or dried up.

03. Clean the cartridge drive with a nice cloth and cleaning liquid.

04. Re install both catridges and take a test print out.

05. Recommended to have a service contract with local HP Authroized printer vendor to have a regular maintenance at least once in a month.
