Great Customer Service!
I have just had a live chat with Adam Whitehead of Printerbase and he was the most helpful person I’ve spoken to, nothing was too much trouble and he had some great knowledgable advice. It was so nice to talk to someone who knows about what they sell. I’ll definitely be coming back to Printerbase when I’m ready to order my next printer. Thank you Adam!

Why does my Brother printer run out of ink so quickly ?

Your Brother printer ink runs out so quickly for a few reasons.

 • Most brand-new Brother printers come with starter Brother printer ink or toner cartridges which have lower yields than a standard cartridge.

 • You print large volumes but use standard yield ink or toner. Buy high-capacity Brother printer ink or toner cartridges.

 • You are printing all documents in normal mode which is using more Brother printer ink. Use draft mode for non-essential or not so important printouts.

 • Open the ink cartridge cover, often located on the right-hand side of an inkjet printer.

 • Press the ink cartridge lock release lever and pull out the empty ink cartridge.

 • Replace the empty ink cartridge with the same colour or part number.

 • Remove any protective tapes or caps and check the arrow direction on the ink cartridge label for correct installation.

 • Lift the lock release lever and gently push until it clicks.

 • The printer should now start to check and confirm ink cartridge change.

Why won't my Brother printer recognise the ink cartridge ?

Your Brother printer won’t recognise the ink cartridge for several reasons. Here is a checklist below to get you going when this happens.

 • If your printer has an LCD display, follow the guidance on screen.

 • Make sure you purchased the correct and genuine set of Brother ink cartridges for your printer.

 • Make sure the printer is powered on. This is very basic but often a missed step.

 • Remove the ink cartridge(s), power off the printer for 10 minutes and power it back on, allowing the printer to fully start up then re-install the ink cartridge(s).

 • If your Brother ink cartridge(s) is still not recognised after the checks above, contact the ink cartridge supplier for help.
