Brother MFC 9420cn Printer not printing properly

Hi there i have a brother mfc 9420cn with a brand new black toner cartridge in it. the other toner cartidges are in the printer but empty. I only want to print in black/white.
The print out is very light and barely visable on the page.
Before sending to print i select the mono option under the colour management options. 
does anyone know what the problem would be.
thanks for any help given.

SOURCE: Brother MFC 210C series ink replaced

The brother machines require ink in all the cartridges as it is always flushing ink through the heads to "clean" it. This means you must have ink in all cartridges at all times unfortunately or the brother will not work. Even if you could somehow get it to work it could damage your printhead anyway.

Good Luck
Please rate my advice, good or bad.

SOURCE: brother printer mfc-9420cn says to

when you open the front cover, there is a waste toner tank on the bottom right side of the printer.

Remove the tank and chuck out the waste toner, wipe the tank clean with a cloth and slide tank back in position and close the cover.

this wil resolve the message on the screen

I work at Office Depot. Bring it to one of our stores and we can look into it and diagnose it. Usually it is as simple as a loose toner cartridge.

If i have run out of cyan coloured toner, can i print only black somehow? the printer doesn't want to print at all (even on mono colour selection), and keeps asking to replace toner cartridge


There are few printers if any one toner ink is finished it does not print any more. So you must replace the toner or refill it then it will work.

Printer is not printing clear and nice pictures


Dear Cubohr,

You need to check the other colour toners, if the other toners are running low, than you will find that the black tone becomes more prominant in your prints. Alternately, there may be an environmental condition with your unit. If it is in direct sunlight, then it is possable that you are getting light interference on all your prints. There are also a number of other reasons.

Check your toners first, check if there is light interference, if both are ok, your unit may still be under brother warranty and you may need to get it to a brother service centre.

Help with Brother MFC-8500 all in one printer


When you get the paper, can you smear the print with your fingers, or is printed on there properly.

if you can smear it, it would be your fuser not doing its job properly, if you cant, then its your replacement toner as it most likely incorporates the drum in it, which i think is your problem.

Color cartridge


The Brother machine will not print if the message "Toner Empty X" ( X =C for Cyan, M for Magenta, Y for Yellow and K for Black) is displayed on the LCD. The empty toner(s) must be replaced in order to continue printing. Incoming faxes will be stored in the memory until the toner(s) is replaced.

Blue Toner finishes quicker


I can't imagine where toner could possible go from one of these sort of cartridges except on to your paper, I had a customer once with the same request and I found on their letter head that they printed with it had a single band of yellow across it hence excess yellow use,,,,,, Do your print runs of anything contain dark bands/underlines? I guess check to see if white background in any prints has a blueish tinge to it, or possiblly somehow black is running out and it is printing the blacks by mixing the colours (Check black block and text to see if it is really black not heaps dark blue to ensure black toner is operating)

next I'd be questioning if cartridges where brother ones?
