There is a microswitch in the ink detector on the right hand side of the ink cartridge holder. SOmetimes this does not register a removal of ink cartridge.
Flicking, should prioduce the response "did you change the cartridge?" reply yes (up arrow) and it will reset the level indicator.
rlooking for a SSC program to reset the ink level is a waste of time for brother printers, it does not exist!

Hi,


The nozzle may be blocked. So take out the colour cartridge and place its nozzle in a bit of water for about 10 mins. Bring it out and dab the nozzle with folded paper. If the tissue is blotted with the three colour it means you have unblocked the nozzle. Try now to print after returning the colour cartridge. You may need to repeat to get good results.


Thank you!!

My printer is not printing the colour yellow even though the cartidge is full and new


If you have run the nozzle cleaning utility, and you are not getting any yellow output, the cartridge is most likely defective. This also occurs if you are not using OEM ink cartridges.

Hi, my Brother DCP-115C Brother printer keeps telling me my black ink is empty despite putting brand new cartridges in, can you offer any help. Thanks.


Black electrical tape is the answer and it’s because the tape is BLACK. Even if u put black tape on an empty cartage the printer will still try to print.

The tape goes on the side of the cartage that faces the back of the printer (where the sensor must be).

Prints blue and black only


Did you leave an empty cartridge in the printer for a few days? as if you have it may have blocked the print head and they are very hard if not impossible to clear.
