Power the machine down and pull all of the cartridges. Get some alcohol and a long cotton or foam swabs with a wooden stick, not a paper one. If you look down in the ink compartment to right side of where the cartridges fit you will see that there are some thin clear plastic pieces that cover the cartridge level sensors. Give those a cleaning. A fair amount of ink came off on mine. Plug all the cartridges back in and power back up...

I have just had the same problem but have just now fixed it...I took out all of the cartridges and then put them in from back to front, starting with the black and working my way to the cyan. It worked and the printer started to clean immediately.

Genuine brother ink cartridge not detected by printer on DCP J315W printer


This is a common occurrence for these machines. They can get confused when cartridges are changed before they read as empty.

To correct this.
1) Unplug the printer from both the Power and Computer and remove all cartridges closing the cartridge access panel.
2) Plug the printer into the Power only and turn on. The machine will complain about no cartridges, this is fine.
3) Open Ink access panel and insert the first cartridge (Black is most common and close the panel.
4) The machine will complain about the missing cartridges. Open the panel and insert the second cartridge in the sequence and close the panel again.
5) Repeat the process for the third and fourth cartridge.
6) Once all cartridges have been installed the printer will ask if you have replaced the cartridges. Say no to the Black, Cyan and Yellow but yes to the Magenta and it will display the correct readings.

If this process fails to read the cartridge still then there is something wrong with the sensor inside the machine which probably means new machine.

MFC-J430W will not recognize any new magenta cartridge!


When installing the cartridges, it is important that you insert them from left to right with the black cartridge first and the magenta cartridge last. The reason for this is because the magenta cartridge has a clip on top of it that goes into the cartridge door sensor. The clip needs to push the sensor in so the printer is able to function with the cartridge door open. If you insert the magenta cartridge first, the printer will think the cartridge door is closed and you will get a error message for the other missing cartridges.

The light for the magenta cartridge on my iP3500 printer goes off


The cartridge, as well as all ink jet cartridges has a chip inside that tells it how much ink is in the cartridge. Your cartridge is LYING, except it prevents you from printing without all cartridges working. ( same for my 6 color epson ). You need to replace the cartridge. I get my cartridges at a yahoo store called Inks4less. They have good quality for cheap.

There was a study done, analizing the amount of inks left in inkjet cartridges when they indicated empty, and the range was 7% to 25% ink still left.

Yes, you will replace the whole cartridge. Open the front door and pull out the cartridge drawer. Grab the handle for the magenta and pull it straight up. There should be directions in the box.

Printer says I have duplicate Magenta cartridges when I don't?


I think it's the chips on the cartridge - the colour that it thinks it's duplicating! I took it off the black (duplicated) and put it on the magenta and it thought it had duplicate magenta cartridges!!
