Try a print head deep cleaning. It should be an option in your maintenance settings.

Hp laserjet 2600n printer creates 1/2" wide band that you can almost see the print...like it is not getting toner in black color.


This often happens when cartrage has run past changing point. remove cartrages starting at top and CK for ink. Run cleaning page until clear

Replacing a cartridge


Title:
I replaced my ink cartridge, but the LCD is still displaying "Ink Empty". What can I do?
Description: This is typically caused by an incorrect selection made during the LCD prompting after a cartridge is replaced. When an ink cartridge(s) is replaced, the LCD will ask, "Have you removed Blck? 1 Yes 2 No". This question will be asked for ALL 4 colors in sequence, regardless if the color was replaced. If "1 Yes" is NOT selected for the color(s) that was replaced, the LCD will return to "Ink Empty". Do the following to clear the message:


  1. Pull the scanner cover release lever located below the control panel and lift the top cover.

  1. After 15 seconds, re-close the top cover and then re-close the control panel cover.

  2. The LCD will then display Have you removed Blck? 1 Yes 2 No.
    The LCD will display this question for ALL 4 colors (not just the ones replaced). BE SURE to select 1 YES for each ink cartridge that was replaced.
    If 1 Yes is selected, the LCD will then display Change to new (color)? 1 Yes 2 No. Again, BE SURE to select 1 YES.
Note "Change to new (color)?" will only appear if 1 Yes is selected for "Have you removed (color)?" If 2 NO is selected for the "removed" question, the LCD will then move on to the question for the next color.

Color ink cartridge says empty i just filled it


When you put in a "new" cartrage the printer sens an electrical charge to the cartrage to set it up properly. So I would treat this as a new cartrage, rather than a refilled one. Go to the printer menu and re install the ink cartrage in question, it should recognise it and start the function as a new one, good luck

HP 930C will not print in color


Have you made sure that the plastic strip covering the cartridge is removed? Also, are both of the cartridges installed? Mine won't print if both aren't installed. Next, you might want to check that (in printer settings) your printer isn't configured to print pure black/greyscale. Otherwise, check the HP Site, they have walkthrough guides on how to print tests directly from your printer. Hope this helps. BurntLime

Ink cartridge light keeps blinking


you need to print only in black if that is all the ink you have, and also you need to remove the color cartridge as it still registers in the printer as able to be used, although it is empty or near so. Did you remove the tape over the print head fron the new ink cartridge? Do a print head alignment, or use the toolbox icon to tell the printer that you just replaced the cartridge. Some HP models chip the ink cartridges so even a refill wont register as a full tank and the printer wont print. chip needs to be reset (difficult) or just replaced with a new cartridge.

Then your point is i should buy a new set of color cartrages like the 3 colors before the printing should take place then how can i set my brothers printer mfc-240c into black cartrages only no need to buy...


First - read the manual as regards printing. I notice that you can print in Black and White but I cannot find anything to say that you only need the Black ink to do this (therefore I think that I am right in saying that you need the colour cartridges).

Question - Has it worked with only the black ink before now?

As a final solution - Contact Brother direct and check out their FAQ's and/or send them an email asking if you can run the printer with Black ink only installed (I suspect the answer will be no).

If the answer to the above questions comes back as "Yes you can use Black only" (they may tell you how to set this up in which case ignore my next comments), then please supply some more information as regards what happened immediately before it stopped printing. This will help to drill down to the problem.
