Will not print black even with a brand new cartridge


Brother has had a problem with this model and several similar ones not printing black. If it's still in it's one-year warranty, find a service center here, and Brother will pay the servicer for everything. If it's just out of warranty, call Brother and beg for them to issue a Service Request, which is like an extension of the warranty for this one situation. They'll replace your printhead and all ink cartridges. (It may still come back low on ink, because it uses a bunch of ink purging air and old ink from the tubes & head after the repair.

But before all that, try several cleaning cycles, and make sure you have genuine Brother ink in the machine. Brother won't pay for a repair on this unless it has their own ink in it.

If it's long out of warranty, it can still be repaired, but will probably cost more than a new machine.

I purchased a Brother fax 1860c over a year ago and the black ink will not print. I have changed the cartridge and tried trouubleshooting myself. No luck! Please help


This sounds like a hardware failiure.
What I understand is the cartridge has already been replaced once and all operator funtions have been exhausted in order to make this operate.
Recheck to see if any ribbon cables are fully secured and fastened to the mechanical parts of the head, and no debries are in the head itself.

Try to contact the vendor and see how you can resolve this issue.
it sounds like the Black ink electro-mechanics is not working, beyond your control of service repair. This might be in the electical, main circuit board or trigger mechenisim that is not working.
I hope it will not cost you much money, I am sure you would like to use this fine fax machine.
Good luck.

I don't use the color printing yet the color cartridges are empty


It's all a scam. I have the same problem and I called Brother and they told me that the machine uses color ink to clean itself. It costs more to replace these color cartridges then to buy a new one, which is what I'm going to do. Buy a black and white from a different company. It's all a scam to get you to spend money on their color ink that you don't use.

My brother fax machine is indicating that two color cartridges are almost empty, however i never print anything and color, and basically everything is black. so how can they be almost empty?


Three reasons -

If your print driver is set to color. It will use all the colors to make black.

Because the machine is ink jet it needs to clean the print head to stop it from drying out. It will use color ink to flush the print head every two days.

When ever in receives a fax it will use some color when printing a fax, particularly Cyan.

If you only wish to print or receive faxes in black there is now a version of Brother fax that only uses black ink and has no color inks. However it may not be available in your region. If you try and cheat the system you will only kill your print head.

Brother Intellifax 1840C the only one thing you can to do is stick masking tape around the cartridge, there is an switch, when you take off the cartidge the switch is off, when you put it on the switch is on, this is out = "off" and in= "on", do the same with the other colors.
greetings.
