Question about Printers & Copiers
And the colors are empty.in the pref i marked to print grayscale but still will not print.pl's help
brother won't print od do anything is one of the 4 inks are empty so first of all you have to replace whatever is empty, when you remove it it will ask you if you changed it and if it is a new one you will press 1 twice per cartridge, if you put compatible ink in you will clog the ink head up and then be stuffed

Theres a simple trick to cheat the machine.
you will definitly destroy the printhead when doing so for a longer periode!
You have to put some black adhesive tape around the middle part where you can see this black palstic flag inside the cart. This flag signals the printer that the cart is insert and later on when the ink is down to give the waring: near empty.
I do give you the advice to do another but saver cheating:
You can refill the cart with a mixture of 8 ml destill water and 3ml 85%-Glycerol (e. g. Glycerin alc. which can be bought at a drugstore for a few cents). Shake the mixture well (within the syringe) before refilling the cart.
See pics here how to do so (LC1000):

(brother has changed the construction of the carts! If you can see a plastic quad in the middle of the cart, you have to drill the hole just behind the air valve (white plastic looking out of the cart)

There is no Error 10 within the maintenance of the printer!
An error starting with 10 (and two more digits) belongs to the communication device (fax).
Plz check again what two digit error you have and post again.
you need a new waist ink absorber. plz check the forum for unable to clean or error 46. Its explained many times.

You can try to press the power button for 30 secs, unplug the power for 10s while holding the power, plug the power back in and wait for 10s then release it.
