Allright. Can you refer to page 166 in your manual, where it shows you how to open the machine and clean the printhead. If you dont have the manual you can view it here After youve cleaned the printhead.. Unplug the machine and plug it back in and try to print a test page.. What happens? Do you get ink on paper now?

Question, was the machine printing to paper before you replaced the cartridge? If you still have the old cartridge and we insert it, will the old cartridge print?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Dustin, I replaced the old cartridge because the cartridge was old and the ink was to light .I trashed the old cartridge. the new cartridge is still not printing. I've never had this problem changing a cartridge!
Expert:  Dustin replied 1 year ago.
It possible you have a bad cartridge.. Especially if the cartridge had sat in storage on on a shelf for a while. If you just purchased the cartridge, Id consider replacing it with a genuine brother cartridge.

The cartridge is new and it is a brother cartridge
