Exclamation GT-541 End of parts & ink Production May 31, 2020

We just found out that Brother has put out an end of lifecycle notice for the GT-541 and per our rep "ink and parts will cease production as of May 31, 2020. Brother told us they expect the ink stock to be available till the end of summer or so." Here's the linkhttps://brotherdtg.com/lifecycle

Our rep expects regular stock to last possibly a little bit longer, maybe till the end of the year but they won't be stockpiling extra ink, as they do have an expiry date,

Apparently parts will be available, with no warranty "Our rep will continue ordering parts from Brother as asked for by customers, but it will be special orders, with no warranty, as Brother won’t be able to warranty the parts anymore."

We are interested in what others are doing, or going to do, for their ink supply. We used non-OEM inks a few years back but had too many issues and switched back to OEM Ink.

Angry Re: GT-541 End of parts & ink Production May 31, 2020

We still run a gt541 a real work horse. It's really to dam bad that Brother will not be making parts or ink anymore. I'm sure there are still lots of people running them. I guess they want to sell some new machines. I won't be buying one.

Michelle, please understand that May 31, 2020 will be the last day for free technical support for Brother GT-541 and GT-782. Users can still have access to the online support found at https://gtowner.brother-usa.com/Garm...px?Machine=541. Users can also choose to also pay for support over the phone or at their location using a 3rd party technician (usually from an authorized dealer) or direct with Brother.

Inks and most parts are still be manufactured today… but will stop prior to May 31, 2020. We forecast that the ink to be in stock through the end of this year. If you have questions about parts availability after May 31st, you should contact your authorized dealer or Brother directly.

If you’re located within North America and still require additional technical assistance, please fill out a support ticket, http://brotherdtg.com/techsupport/user-support/ or contact your original dealer if outside these areas. If you don’t have this contact info, you should complete the form on this page - Brother GTX

I am extremely disappointed to hear that ink is going to stop being produced as of May 31st, 2020. I understand the difficulty of keeping three slightly different products under active support is difficult but to also stop producing ink at the same time?!
