  • Compatible HY 4 Pack for Brother LC103

    Q:

    OEM Brother ink cartridges come with covers that are removed prior to installation. The LD product has a non-removable, thin plastic cover, that is pierced by the the printer's ink inlet tube when installed. Is there any chance that a piece of the broken plastic cover could be sucked into the printer?
    Asked on 1/17/2018 by Al from undisclosed

    1 answer

    • A:

      We're so sorry for the confusion! There's should be a yellow tape on the front of the cartridges that should be removed. Also, there's a thin plastic foil covering the nozzle that should be punctured by your printer and it will not be sucked from it. Should you have any other questions or concerns, please contact us through email, livechat or call us at 800-465-5387 for immediate assistance, we will certainly be here to assist you!

    Q:

    If I print a page and then the page gets wet, will the ink stay in place or smudge to the point of making it unreadable?
    Asked on 3/23/2016 by Yehoshua

    1 answer

    • A:

      We recommend allowing some dry time so the ink will not smudge. Dye based cartridges are likely to smudge or smear if on a wet surface.

  • Compatible LC103BK High Yield Black Ink for Brother

    Q:

    Hello. Just want to make sure these cartridges are compatible with my new Brother MFC-J450DW made the last half of this year. I know there have been issues with reset chips for later 2015 model printers.

    Also the OEM Brother black ink cartridges use "pigment" based ink and NOT "dye" based ink. I have yet to find a compatible cartridge maker that does not fill the black cartridges with "dye" based ink. Do you use "pigment" black ink in this cartridge??

    Thank you!

    • A:

      Yes, these compatible LC103 ink cartridges will fit and work with your MFC-J450DW. It contains a smart chip that will work with the recent firmware update. The Black cartridge is pigment based and the Color cartridges are dye based.

A few months ago, Brother released a firmware update that made most third-party ink cartridges incompatible. Fortunately, this set of ink is 100% compatible with my MFC-J470DW printer running Brother's latest firmware. Print quality is solid and ink levels accurate. Word of caution - do NOT remove the small plastic sheet covering the cartridge ink nozzle; this sheet will be punctured when the cartridge is installed.

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
