Question about Brother MFC 420CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
I've changed the ink cartridges, tried to clean the machine and turned the printer off and on but still nothing prints on the page. The paper does feed through the machine, though. The machine shows no error message in the window; it just shows standard mode.

Change the black one. It could be that the cart is mal manufactured (valve wont open). Use another one and see if there is bk again. When no success after the 2. cleaning cycle try this: http://www.fixya.com/support/t202678-printer_head_cleaning If there is more trouble post here.

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

SOURCE: not recognizing ink cartridge
On the clear side of the cartridge, put a piece of electrical tape to
cover the center plastic bar that sticks out. For some reason these
printers have a big problem with sensing ink levels. The tape lets the
sensor think the cartridge float inside is up, meaning a full
cartridge. The sensors seem to have difficulty reading where the black
float is inside the cartridge.

I see it's been a while since you posted your question but in case anyone else is wondering about this, I'll answer. The information is not in the User's Guide booklet but in the Software User's Guide which should be available on your software disk, or you can view it here http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/Public/files/dlf/doc000240/BH3_UsaEngSoft_C.pdf
Basically, you go to the advanced tab under the printing preferences and select grayscale.

On your printer take a look on the "ink management button"press it then look for cleaning using the arrows up and down then press ok or set or what ever the command the printer will display just try to perform head cleaning.try for several times lets say 4x don't clean too much it might ruin all other color if it has no changes try to bring it to a service center,they can soak it to a chemical solution,the head is clog.
