Square panel - front right side of printer.
Pull it open from the side. Towards you.
The ink slides in from the front.

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.

Title:
REPLACE TONER (video instructions available)
Description:
The message REPLACE TONER indicates the toner cartridge needs to be replaced with a new one. Please follow the steps below to replace the toner cartridge.
NOTE: Videos and illustrations shown below are from a representative product and may differ from your Brother machine.
HINT:
The Brother machine has separate consumables: the toner cartridge and the drum unit. Verify you replace only the toner cartridge, and not the drum unit. Click here to see the difference between the toner cartridge and the drum unit. Also you can confirm the order number (Order No.) of the toner cartridge on the Consumables & Options page. Click here to go to the Consumables & Options page.
Make sure that the machine is turned on. Open the front cover and leave the machine turned on for 10 minutes to cool down.

Caution
You must ensure the machine is turned on when you replace the toner cartridge so that the machine recognizes the toner has changed.
After you have just used the machine, some internal parts of the machine will be extremely hot. Wait for the machine to cool down before you touch the internal parts of the machine.
Hold your Brother machine with one hand, and take out the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly by pulling on the handle in the middle of the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly. We recommend that you place the drum unit and/or the toner cartridge on a clean, flat, level, stable surface with a sheet of disposable paper or cloth underneath it in case you accidentally spill or scatter toner.

Handle the toner cartridge carefully. If toner scatters on your hands or clothes, immediately wipe or wash it off with cold water.
To avoid print quality problems, DO NOT touch the shaded parts shown in the illustration.
Be sure to seal up the toner cartridge tightly in a suitable bag so that toner powder does not spill out of the cartridge.
Go to Above Mention Official Brother Printer Url Link for instructions on how to return your used consumable items to the Brother collection program. If you choose not to return your used consumable, please discard the used consumable according to local regulations, keeping it separate from domestic waste.

Unpack the new toner cartridge. Hold the cartridge level with both hands and gently shake it from side to side several times to spread the toner evenly inside the cartridge. Pull off the protective cover.

Caution
Wait to unpack the new toner cartridge until immediately before you put it in the machine. If a toner cartridge is left unpacked for a long time, the toner life will be shortened.

To prevent any degradation to the print quality, DO NOT touch the shaded parts shown in the illustrations.
DO NOT touch the toner surface.
Brother strongly recommends that you DO NOT refill the toner cartridge provided with your machine.

I cannot find the slot to replace ink cartridges! Brother LC61CL


Which Brother all-in-one printer or copier do you have? The LC61CL cartridges fit MFC-255CW, MFC-290C, MFC-295CN, MFC-490CW, MFC-495CW, MFC-5490CN, MFC-5890CN, MFC-5895CW, MFC-6490CW, MFC-790CW, MFC-795CW, MFC-990CW, MFC-J410w, MFC-J615W and the DCP-165C . The cartridges could fit other printers as well.

I know that the MFC_795CW has a cover on the right hand side that you need to open when the unit is on. Then the cartridge carrier will move to the ink changing area. (For a new printer, there is a green protector in place that you need to pull out. Keep this in case you move the printer later.) This location applies for the DCP-165C copier as well.

If the unit is on but the cartridge carrier does not move to the opening of the ink cartridge cover, then something may be blocking the carrier from moving. This could be a scrap of paper or other foreign object blocking the route.

Brother has the support for most of their printers available here: http://www.brother-usa.com/Support/ . There is a specific link for just the manuals on the page as well.

More complete trouble-shooting guides are available if you search for your model from the Brother search box at the top right hand corner of the page. Go to the product details page and then see the Brother Solution Center links on the right hand side of the page.

I hope this helps.

Toner light is on and it wont print


Hello,

The toner light being on solid means that the toner cartridge is empty.
You will need to replace it with a new one.
When replacing the cartridge, please remember to seperate the toner and the drum, DO NOT THROW OUT THE DRUM.

If you have already changed the toner cartridge with a new one, then you will want to reset the toner cartridge.

To manually reset the printer, first, remove the toner from the printer and separate it from the drum unit.

With the toner cartridge in hand and the brother writing facing you, look to the left side of the cartridge. You should see an arc shaped opening with a white tab in it.

The tab is set at the right position and must be pushed back to the left side of the opening.
To push the tab back, you must turn the grey gear attached to the front roller upwards as you push the tab.

Once the tab has been placed to the left position, the printer will accept it as a new toner cartridge.

Thanks,

Pat

It tells me the cartridges are empty, then when i open the lid it says no cartridge! its not been used for a few months, and i refill them with generic refills...any thoughts? tried the switch off and on -...


Hello ,

Start by opening your ink cover and read the LCD screen; this will alert you as to which ink cartridge is not being recognized; make sure the cartridge that it is telling you is empty has been changed.

If the unit is still not recognizing the cartridge you have changed, follow the steps below.

  1. Unplug the power cord for the printer unit.
  2. Open the ink cartridge cover and remove all ink cartridges.
  3. Close the ink cartridge cover.
  4. Plug the power cord back in.
  5. Reinstall the ink cartridges.

Make sure that your ink cartridges are full and that they are genuine brother inks; refills or generic ink cartridges are not guaranteed to work properly.

Thanks,

Pat

Brpther DCP 330c does not recognise new black ink cartridge


Usually there is more than one cartridge empty when you receive this kind of problem. Try opening the top cover and check if the display changes - it should change to specify one (or more) of the color cartridges as empty. That one(s) should be changed too.

We recently bought new ink cartridges for our brother mfc-240 printer. It keeps saying no cartridge wether we put the new or old black one in. Is this fixable? -Rebecca


The machine most likely want you to change one (or more) of the other cartridges too. By opening the top cover and reading the display when it is opened, you should get an error indicating which cartridge to change, it most likely isn't the black one it is alarming about, but rather one of the not-changed ones.

113a345.jpgYou have to open the flap (arrow).

Then you have to press the one of the colored lockers down which color is empty. The cart will come out.
After replacing the cart make sure that the lockers are secured well (by pressing them until it "clicks"). Close the flap. Machine will do some cleaning.
Print on ;-)
