Question about Brother MFC 420CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
I can't get a new cartridge today, and I have to finish printing this document. the brother site says that in order for the message to go away, I have to replace cartridge, even though there is still ink in it. "What a waste"!!! I have some ink refillers, but they suggest not doing that, so do you know how I get the message away, so that I can continue printing?
Sorry i couldn't help on the day you nedded it. Do not be afraid to refill, it's easy once you have a go, all instructions come with the refill kits, and they instuct on your specific printer too. Follow it to the T and you can refil one colour or all, and no waste. Once refilled, replace it, reset ink levels, and try printing again. Good luck.

There is good reasons they don't let you run it out. One, it will dry out and block the printer head. Two, a soon as the head runs dry, it is wrecked anyway. Either way, you would be up for another big bill. Try leaving it turned on while you replace the cartridge, when you close the cover it has to ask you if you changed "whatever colour" cartridge?. You must say yes here to reset ink counter. Sometimes it takes a few goes. Refilling can be a hit and miss affair untill you get a lot of practise! Who needs that. Refilled cartridges are available cheap. Buy a set and just change them one at a time as it complains about them. To cut down on usage, shut the printer down properly at night. If you just unplug it, it cannot cap the cartridges and your ink will dip out.
