Question about Brother MFC-465CN InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Colour ink runs out and can't print b&w page

We don't do much colour printing or copying. Is there a way to switch off colour so it only prints black?
Or is there a way to handle it when the colour runs out so that you can still print in black?

    Another guy said that covering the hole where the optical sensor measures the ink level would handle this. So I'll try that.

    Not playing with the optical sensor. Covering the hole where the sensor looks through.

    I think you win on that point, crespec.

Is it possible that you accidentally put the wrong colour cartidges in the wrong spots? Otherwise, it should work fine. Also, the printer's default is usually to print in colour, therefore even pages in black and white will usr colour, which uses up coloured ink. Always check the prooerties when printing to switch to b&w:)

EPSON SERIES L200 PRINTER DOES NOT PRINT BLACK COLOR


To everybody having issues with black not printing on the L200, I just got off the phone with Epson, and these steps solved it for me:

1.- Open the ink containers (lay flat and open carefully to avoid ink spillage).
2.- Run the Clean maintenance procedure from the Epson control panel
3.- Try printing a page with black features (still with the ink containers open)
3.- If it still won't print, try the Full Clean (it uses more ink, but in my case it was necessary)
4.- Try printing a page again (at this point it worked for me).
5.- Close the ink containers and put back on the side of the printer.

According to the Epson representative, this is the most common cause for printing issues with the L200 because the initial ink load creates a high vacuum and then the ink can't flow.

Have changed Ink Black and Colour... Stil getting error Message.


Make sure the tape covering the hole on the bottom of the black cartridge is removed. and then go into the printers folder and right click on your printer icon and go into the properties of that printer and there should be something in there to tell it that you changed cartridges and you can also print a test page as well.
