If you're sure the cartridge is OK start printing from the File... Print menu item and NOT the toolbar button. This will bring up a dialog box where you can choose the option to print in either color or black and white.

My Brother MFC-490CW prints magenta where it should be printing black. I have done numerous cleanings and alignments. I changed the black cartridge and it is a Brother cartridge, not a refill. Still...


Well, either your print settings have it set to print in a color model that is not the native one (I can get this from CUPS drivers by picking KMCY instead of CMYK, among others) or it is confused enough to need Brother's initializing tool (program, I mean) to get it sorted out. Try de-weirding your settings first, then double-check the print dialog's settings when you retry. Nobody loves magenta-on-white for print.

Can my brothers printer work only on black ink (MFC 465 CN)


I am afraid you cannot print if (any) one of the cartridges is empty. Here is a screen capture from the properties of my MFC. At the bottom of the picture it says in French : Le MFC arrêtera l'impression Couleur/échelle de gris lorsqu'une ou plus des cartouches d'encre sera vide.

What it say in English is as follows: The MFC will stop printing in Color/Gray scale when one or more of the ink cartidges is empty.

Open the properties of the MFC. Under "Advanced" Tab Click the Printing Defaults at the bottom left. At the bottom of the window that pops up you will see the information that I translated for You.

Do you have it set to print in black and white as the default? Go into the print driver, under Color Management, and select Color.

My brother MFC 240C was set for printing only black and white, since I had only installed a black cartridge. Now I have installed the three color cartrdiges also. How do I change the settings to print...


You have to change the settings in your print driver. In Windows XP or Vista, go into the Control Panel and the Printers & Faxes applet. Right click on the Brother print driver and select Properties. In one of the tabs there should be an option for either Grayscale or Color printing (probably under Color Management) -- change this to Color and then click OK or Apply to save the changes.

By changing it in the print driver settings, the change should take effect for all programs that you print from.

Printing in color


You can't. This is a Black and White laser printer. If you want to print in color, you need to buy a Color Laser printer.
