    If you have a dcp 130 you have to choose LC1000!

    If you try to refill LC1000 (it is the same as LC 51) carts watch the construction espacially in the middle of the ink tank: In case it is different DONT drill the hole as shown in the pictures! In this case drill hole next to the valve!

    Brother has changed the construction a few month ago!!!!

Asked me to refill ink when i did it is saying no cartridge, tryed it again and turning it off and on and is still saying the same

Hi, remove the ink cartridge and re-insert properly, if it is still same thing, maybe you did not refill the cartridge well or perhaps your printer do not accept or support refill cartridges, so i suggest you get a new cartridge and fix properly.

I wish you best of luck.

I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

better use this generic ink carts, which work pretty much better than the original ones :o
(LC1000 is identical to LC51)

There is much trouble by refilling original carts, because of the ink which might clog the ph.
Anyway if you keen on inky-fingers, malfunction ph and maybe bad printing results: - Refill

Brother DCP 130C not printing magenta and yellow

after replacing the ink cartridges it took several cleans to come good. I have no idea how to "manually" clean the heads. So I told the printer to do it many (about 7) times. It eventually worked
