SOURCE: not recognizing ink cartridge

On the clear side of the cartridge, put a piece of electrical tape to cover the center plastic bar that sticks out. For some reason these printers have a big problem with sensing ink levels. The tape lets the sensor think the cartridge float inside is up, meaning a full cartridge. The sensors seem to have difficulty reading where the black float is inside the cartridge.

SOURCE: I want to install ink cartidges and do not know where to begin. I have misplaced my instructions

To install your Brother machine#s ink cartridges, follow the steps
listed below:

1. Make sure that the Brother machine#s power is turned on.

2. Open the ink cartridge cover. This cover is located on right-hand
side of the Brother machine#s front panel.


3. Pull down the four lock release levers. There is one lock release
lever for each ink cartridge.

4. Take the ink cartridge out of its protective bag.

5. Carefully remove the yellow protective cap from the ink cartridge.

- DO NOT touch the side of the ink cartridge covered by the yellow
protective cap.

- Take care when removing this cover to prevent spilling ink and
staining your hands and clothing.

- If the cartridge cover comes off when you open the bag, the cartridge
will NOT be damaged.

6. Install each ink cartridge in the direction of the arrow on the
label.

- Please note that each color has its own specific position. These
positions are indicated by the colors of the four lock release levers.
Do not install an ink cartridge in the incorrect position, as this can
cause print quality problems.

7. Lift each lock release lever and push it until it clicks into the
closed position.

8. Close the ink cartridge cover.

- If the LCD shows #Install Black,# #Install Cyan,# #Install Magenta,#
or #Install Yellow# after you install the ink cartridges, please verify
that you have installed the cartridges correctly.

NOTE:

* DO NOT remove the ink cartridges from the Brother machine unless you intend to replace them. If you do, it may reduce the quantity of ink left in the cartridge, which may cause the Brother machine to miscalculate the amount of remaining ink.

* DO NOT shake the ink cartridges. If ink stains your skin or clothing, wash the affected area with soap or detergent immediately.

* DO NOT repeatedly insert and remove the ink cartridges. Doing so may cause ink to seep out of your cartridges.

* If you mix the colors by installing an ink cartridge in the wrong
position, clean the print head several times after correcting the
cartridge installation.

* Once you open an ink cartridge, install it in the Brother machine and use it up within six months of installation.

* Use unopened ink cartridges by the expiration date listed on the
cartridge package.

* DO NOT dismantle or tamper with the ink cartridge. Doing so can cause ink to leak out of the cartridge

Light/faint prints usually are a result from clogged ink or air bubbles between the cartridge and print head (thus changing cartridge wont fix problem). Try printing the test page print from the machine (Ink Management -> set/ok twice). Answer the question(s) in the display and repeat this up to five times. The colors should be improved after 1-3 test prints usually.

SOURCE: Ink problem with Brother Fax 1860C

The machine detects the ink by shining a light through the rib in one edge of the ink cartridge. Apparently yellow is close enough to nothing at all, that the sensors get a little out of whack. Here's how to reset the sensors:

  1. Get a dinner plate or something to set the ink cartridges on, that won't absorb ink, and is easy to wash.
  2. Unplug the machine's power.
  3. Open the machine and remove all four inks, setting them on the plate.
  4. Close the machine.
  5. Plug in power.
  6. The machine will begin it's start-up procedure and complain about the missing inks. It will tell you to replace one specific ink first (black, I think).
  7. Follow the instructions on the display, installing one ink color at a time. When all four inks are in, it should be OK.
Use Brother inks. They have a little black floater in that rib, and some of the aftermarket inks have had a problem with the floater sticking.
There may be another problem causing this. The ink may really be low, or the sensor board may be off its mounts in the machine. But the routine above is quick & easy, and it fixes the problem more than half the time. You can't run without any of the colors, because that means air bubbles are getting into the ink tubes, and that can lead to dried ink blocking the nozzles.
This is unrelated, but when you peel the sealing tape from the bottom of the ink ctg., do it slowly. Brother has found that sometimes, when you strip the tape off too fast, a little glue remains stuck in the nozzle, blocking it. If that happens, dig the glue out carefully with a pin & it will be fine.

After changing ink cartridge incoming faxes won't print. Does something have to be reset?


Some machines recognize you changed the ink cartridge and some do not. If you shut it down and restart it, this usually helps it reset.

I have a brother intellifax 1840c (which is great, by the way). I need to change the ink cartridge & have no idea how to get into it. Is there a latch or button to help open it? Please help.


1 Close the document support and the document tray.

2 Lift the top cover to the open position until it locks securely into
place. If one or more ink cartridges are empty, for example Black, the
LCD shows Ink Empty Black and Open Cover.

3 Pull the ink cartridge hook toward you and remove the ink
cartridge for the color shown on the LCD.


You can find the procedure on changing the ink cartridges in the user manual, page 12-25.

Did you have the no cartridge prompt on before you changed the cartridge? If no, then did you remove all packing material. Is this the first time you have changed the cartridge?

I changed the ink cartridge the black one but it still says cartridge empty I unplugged it and it still sais the same thing


My MFC-420CN acts up occationally. Remove the new cartridge, hold it as you would to install it, Rotate it to the right about 45°. Snap it with the back of a finger (dislodges any air bubbles in ink feed). Reinstall cartridge (ensure it is fully seated. This works for both Brother cartridges and the eforcity cartridges I've been using for the past couple of years. HTH

Brother 1840c -problems after changing cartridges


If you are using new cartridges, the problem is in the sensors. The ink sensors get dirty and malfunction. Remove the ink cartridges and thoroughly clean all the surfaces, Allow to completely dry and replace the cartridges. This should cure your problem.
p.s. I usually use alcohol on a Q-Tip to clean

I Need to Print


Sadly in a word, 'No'.

Here is the exact answer from Brother:

Your Brother machine is designed to stop ALL printing operations
(printing from the pc, printing received faxes and printing copies or reports) when any of the ink cartridges are empty. This is to ensure the life of the print head and maintain premium print quality. If the unit were to continue printing, print jobs and cleaning cycles would suction air from the dry cartridge and damage the printhead. Even if you print in black only or change the print settings to MONO or GRAYSCALE to avoid printing in color, the programmed cleaning cycles would still suction the dry cartridge, because they are programmed to clean ALL the ink nozzles.

The only way to continue printing is to replace the empty ink cartridge or cartridges.

While memory is available, black and white faxes will continue to be received into memory. If a color fax is being received, the Brother machines HANDSHAKE will request the fax be sent as black and white fax.

All faxes received into memory will automatically print once the ink cartridge is replaced.

NOTE: Brother strongly recommends that customers do not use generic ink or refill their Brother ink cartridges. Using non-Brother supplies may affect the hardware performance, print quality and machine reliability since the ink formulation in genuine Brother ink cartridges prevent smearing and clogging of the print head. The Brother limited warranty does not apply to any problem that was caused by the use of unauthorized third party ink and/or cartridges.
