Try cleaning the heads at least 5 times; print a test sheet and see how it looks. (this is done on the printing buttons on the left hand side of the machine, on top) It may take a bit. If you are still missing the other colors after this, your heads are clogged. This may be unconvential and I doubt Brother would recommend this, but I had the same problem and it worked.

I removed the ink cartridges not showing ink- and took a can of "Dust Remover" (or any can of high pressure air) and put the long red exteneder on it- and placed the end over the ink entry hole and blew high pressure air through it; you have to get the tube on top of it and press, causing the air to blow through it; I replaced the ink cartridges, did 2 cleanings, the test page is now perfect.

My TX550W ran out of Black Ink (T103) and I replaced it with a Genuine Epson Cartridge compatible with my printer (73N), My computer status monitor/ink check on the printer shows the black ink is now full...


Sometimes the ink does take a while to come from the cartridge to the print head. Performing 1 head cleaning procedure may fix this. But only do this once, anything after is just wasting ink. Also make sure no part of the air tab sticker has blocked the air hole in the cartridge. Have a look at the new one you have to find the hole. Its just under the sticker you take off before installing it into the printer.
I hope this helps Regards GM
