Frequently Asked Questions


Does it mean that the ink cartridge is defective if I get a ‘Cannot Detect’ error message after installing a new cartridge on my Brother MFC-J5520DW printer?

We doubt it. It could possibly mean that the cartridge is installed way too quickly, with the sealing tape still intact. Or the cartridge is installed incorrectly, so the printer does not recognize it. Try removing the new cartridge from the printer. Then, check if the sealing tape is still on. If yes, remove it before inserting it back.


What to do if the product that I received is defective or incorrect?

If you received an incorrect or a defective cartridge, obtain an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) number first by contacting our Customer Service Department. We will then send you a replacement cartridge once you have an RMA number. Just make sure you return the item within a year of purchase.


Do you ship outside the US?

No. Currently, we only ship to the US, its territories, and US military / diplomatic addresses.
