Question about Lexmark All-in-One Printer with PictBridge
I replaced the black ink and know i am low/out of color, but just need to print black, keeps telling me to replace both cartridges
I installed a new black cartridge, however it does not print on the test page only the blue marks print, I have removed the strip of tape and soaked the print head in hot water but it still does not print, when I dab a cloth toit the black ink bleeds on the cloth so can you help me resolve this?

There are only a few steps you need to do to reset a Brother printer ink cartridge and once you do it, you will be up and printing in no time. There are actually two things that a Brother printer uses to detect ink and you can manipulate one or the other.
Things You'll Need: · Black electrical tape, masking tape or duct tape
1. Step 1
Identify the printer If your printer uses memory, you can tell which printer you have by looking at where the cartridge goes in, if you see two "eyes" and a part of the cartridge goes in between them, follow Step 3. Otherwise, continue with Step 2.
2. Step 2
Clear the memory by taking the cartridge out and unplugging the unit for 30 seconds. Then, plug it back in and put back in the cartridge. You may need to do this five times, as the memory holds the last five cartridges.
3. Step 3
If the Brother printer has "eyes" where the cartridge goes, you will need to block in between them with a piece of tape so that it thinks the cartridge is always full. Simply put a piece of tape on the piece of the cartridge that goes in between the eyes to block the path of the infrared beam
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Yes you do need 2.
All ink cartridge bays has to be filled with a working cartridge, for the print driver to allow you to print. That is why I prefer single ink type printers, so it is not so expensive to maintain the inks you don't use.
