  • Can you tell me if you sell the Brother DCP-163B? If you do can you please give me a price? Many thanks, John.

    DCP-163 printers

    I'm afraid that we don't sell printers at this time, we only sell printer consumables such as the ink or toner cartridges. Also, we have no information on a Brother DCP-163B printer which suggests that this is not a valid UK printer model. We can only supply ink for a Brother DCP-163C printer.

  • I want Brother DCP-163C colour ink cartridges. What do I order, as the basket shows a different item?

    Ordering Brother DCP-163C ink cartridges

    You need to check that you're ordering cartridges with the correct numbers for your Brother DCP-163C printer. The correct cartridges for the Brother DCP-163C printer are the Brother LC-980 range of inks so the cartridges you order should have the codes LC-980BK, LC980C, LC980M or LC980Y. If this is incorrect you can remove items from your basket by clicking on "View basket" and then selecting "remove". This will reset your basket so you can add the right items to your basket for a forthcoming order. If you need any further help in ordering the correct cartridges for your DCP-163C printer please contact a member of our telehone support team.

  • Can I order separate cartridges for my DCP-163C printer? I already have new yellow, cyan and black ink cartridges in my printer, and two spare boxes of both colours, but for some reason the magenta is nearly out and the black half full. I would like to know if I can order a magenta and black ink only?

    Ordering single Brother DCP-163C inks

    Yes, you can buy the Brother DCP-163C ink cartridges individually as well as in multipacks. For the single packs of magenta and black Brother LC980 ink that go in the DCP-163C printer please click on the links below:

  • How can I be sure that I get the double size black as part of the ink package?

    Black ink in Brother DCP-163C multipack

    We only list one size of black cartridge for the DCP-163C printer. The 4 colour Brother DCP-163C multipack contains the same black LC980BK cartridge that we sell singly with an estimated capacity of 300 pages.

  • I have a Brother DCP-163C printer. Can I use all of the four cartridges from a Brother MFC-J470DW in this machine? Do those cartridges sold separately contain less Ink?

    Brother DCP-163C cartridge compatibility

    Unfortunately, the cartridges from a Brother MFC-J470DW printer will not fit the DCP-163C printer. You can only use the genuine or compatible Brother LC980 ink cartridges listed on this page in the DCP-163C printer. The individual cartridges will have the same capacity as the ink cartridges sold in the multipacks, provided they have the same part numbers.

Brother DCP-163C Printer Review

Expert review of the Brother DCP-163C printer

Our Verdict:

The Brother DCP-163C multifunction printer incorporates a colour scanner, a copier, and an inkjet printer in one compact product. It is notable for its direct printing capabilities, letting users print from a memory card and digital camera, but it is also appreciated for its fair print speeds and good photo printouts. However, some users may find the Brother DCP-163C to be inefficient for bulk printing and copying.


Integrated with 32MB of RAM, a USB 2.0 interface, and a colour inkjet engine, the Brother DCP-163C all-in-one printer is designed for speed and efficiency. The DCP-163C is a compact device that measures 390x365x150mm (WxDxH), but is quite heavy at 7.1kg. There is an A4 CIS scanner and a copier on top of the device with a simple control panel with an easy-to-use interface. PictBridge and memory card ports are located in the front centre, above the 100-sheet capacity input tray.


The scanner comes with an OCR software. It is possible to save scanned images directly to a memory card inserted into the built-in slots of the Brother DCP 163C inkjet printer. Direct printing is also possible from PictBridge-compatible digital cameras and supported memory cards, such as SDHC and xD picture card. Colour images and pictures printed by the DCP-163C look vibrant because of the high 1200x6000dpi resolution of the Brother DCP163C printer.


Despite having memory card slots, the Brother DCP-163C offers limited support. Memory stick duo and Mini SD cards require an adapter. The copier and printer tend to be sluggish despite the higher RAM. Compatibility issues with Windows 7 are common, limiting the Brother DCP-163C's versatility.
