Won't recognize new cartridge

Installed new color cartridge (Yellow). Machine won't recognize it. It keeps saying no cartridge installed. When I swap the cartridge colors. It doesn't recognize the Yellow cartridge no matter which slot I put it in. The old yellow cartridge (low ink) will also not be recognized in any slot

    The cartridge has a flag which tells the printer that there is a cart and when the ink is at "low" level(see pics: its the black plastic inside the cart) http://www.hstt.net/refill-faq/brother.h...

    Do use another new cartridge. Some thirdparty manufactures use another system to signal the inklevel. This is often the reason for this mistake.

    Sorry, link is broken: You have to choose the "LC900 Doku". On the fifth pic it is labeled as "A".

Yellow ink cannot be recognize by the printer


The problem is that the priter can't detect the ink, because the cartridge has low level ink. I put scotch tape and colored it yellow- on the part where the ink is detected - so the printer will detect the color I put on the tape. BUT as others said it can damage your printer if you will always do this.
