TRY THIS FIRST!!!! it is the easiest and works everytime for me. Just unplugg it. I read somewhere, probably here, to do this. Actually pull the power plug out, not just turn off. I also took out the connnection plug to the computer for extra measues. Wait a few minutes then plug everything back in and turn on. It is like a computer rebooting. The printer will reinitalize itself and do a systems check. All the cartridges were recognized and the inkloads were correct. Had the same problem when I change the Black. Unplugged everything, and then perfect. I really like this multi function printer. it is the best for the money, cartridges are individual and cheaper then others. So if I need to just unplug every now and then not a big deal.

oh, I have always only used Brother cartridges, so I do not think it is cartridge problem. Before doing the tape just try this first. Wish I would have known about this solution with my previous one which obviously I threw away and did not have to.

Hi, do note that even if you are printing in black, the printer requires that you have installed functioning cyan (blueish), magenta (reddish) and yellow cartridges as well.

Hi. Most ink cartridges are cyan magenta yellow and black. You do have to have all cartridge installed for it to work. If it's been sitting for a while ink dries and can cause all kinds of little problems. The ink cartridges have little contacts on them you might have to clean these with a cotton swab and alcohol. But if the ink has dried in the print head you have to clean all the little ink ports on the head.

Solution As the printer operates, it moves ink from the ink cartridges into a printhead reservoir. The printer does not deliver a message when an ink cartridge goes empty, because it still has ink in the reservoir. The printer continues printing until the ink level in the reservoir falls to a first trigger point - then a message appears advising the printer owner to Replace Cartridges Soon . At this point, other cartridges that are empty but have not reached the trigger point are also mentioned in the message, to save trips to the retailer. After the first trigger point, the printer can continue printing until ink levels in the reservoir reach a second trigger point. At the second trigger point there is only enough ink left to perform vital servicing tasks, and a new message appears, saying Ink Cartridges Empty . The options offered depend on the usable inks remaining. If no options are offered, the cartridges indicated must be replaced before printing can continue. The Ink Cartridges Empty options are described in the table below: Ink colors out Option Print mode possible All Cancel None Black

AND

Cyan, Magenta, or Yellow (any or all) Black only Continue with other colors Cyan/Magenta/Yellow mode (composite black)

Text and photo quality will differ from those printed when all colors are available Light Cyan or Light Magenta (either or both) Cyan, Magenta, or Yellow (any or all)

(Black still available) Print with black ink only Grayscale
