Even though my black cartridge is full, my black and white documents are so light they are unreadable. My color cartridges are close to being empty. Can this be the cause?


printers use all cartridges to get the correct colour even black
best get a new colour cartridge then realign the printer with a test pattern

Does printing black text only on a Brother Inkjet All-in-One (MFC-J625DW) use the color cartridges?


Your right. Simple answer. Take the coloured cartraiges out (you may need to set your printer to mono crome though. not sure.? Save a bit more money and recycle your cartrages you get paid for them. then you can buy refill cartrages and save even more. Some say do not use them they cause problems, but i have from day one and still have no problems 29 years later!!! and i am a high user on a A1 PRINTER!!! (draughtsman if your wondering)

Print keeps fading, even though using new ink


check your printer settings, make sure color only is not checked off, or if you mainly print black and white documents, you should have that option checked, you may have to go into advance printer options to do this.

My daughter's NX400 is running out of color ink even though she prints mostly black&white. She says it looks like it is printing black text with a combination of all colors instead of with black ink....


I had an epson. Hardly use the colors, because i was printing only in black.
Sent an email to Epson, and they did respond back.

It will definately use the color ink, even though
you're printing only in black.
Go Figure!

Good Luck.
PS
I now have an HP and Brother

Printing error message: cartridge problem.tri-color.I wasn't even


hi, 

its becoz even if ur print contains only black text in it, while printer printing in black it needs a cyan or yellow ink to give very clear print out. work around for this issue, go to the printer icon and right click and go printing preferances and change the option to print only in blak or print only in gray scale. it should resolve ur issue............

Do this, press and hold the "Stop" button on the printer for 10 seconds that should clear the fault set by the empty ink cartridge.

Printing without color?


Im sorry to inform but yes, Epson ink jet printers require all of the ink cartridges to have ink in them in order to print any color, black and white, or grayscale images. Epson printers contain a permanent print head that needs to be charged with all colors to work. Even when users are printing black text only, a small amount of color ink is used to keep the print head charged for color printing and prevent air bubbles from entering the color print nozzles which can damage the print head. Therefore, once one of the cartridges are expended, the printer signals you to replace the cartridge in order for printing to continue.

Printer will not print black ink


Chewbacca08's solution gave me an idea. I set the print setting to photos paper (even though I was trying to print on plain paper) and IT WORKED. It's worth a shot before you trash a perfectly good printer.
