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?

Re: "no catridge" not true
Drill a 2 - 3 mm hole into the brother label upon the carts. Refill the cart which the printers display shows EMPTY. For color C/Y/M refill a 12ml and for black a 20ml ink. Use only dye ink!
See pictures how to do that:

The Lexmark S405 printer requires all cartridges to have ink in them to continue printing.
The 100/100XL cartridges are not licensed to be
refilled. You can, however, refill the 100A or 100XLA cartridges available on
the Lexmark website at http://www.lexmark.com. You should be
aware that a refilled cartridge will not be able to report its ink level, and
you might not get the print quality you expect from ink that is specially
formulated by Lexmark to pass through microscopic nozzles at extremely high
When the toner cartridge is exhausted or empty then theprinter will not be able to print further documents or the prints will be veryfaint.
You may be able to print a few more pages by removing thetoner cartridge and shaking the toner cartridge in a horizontal position a fewtimes and then placing it back into the printer.
This will give you an opportunity to print a few more pages and give you time to purchase a new tonercartridge for your printer. A cheaper alternative is to purchase are-manufactured toner cartridge for your model printer.
There is a very good chance that your brand new cartridge is defective. If you have another cartridge put that in and see what happens. If the second cartridge works and the first didn't then it is for sure a defective cartridge.
There is nothing on Brother's website referring to this situation, so I would bet that it is a defective cartridge.
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.
