SOURCE: black ink won't print at all

It worked!!!
I actually had to run the clean process about 10 times before I saw even a little bit of ink on the page, so ran it another 5 or 6 times, and now it's printing perfectly again.

I'm amazed, and thankful. I thought it was a goner.

Thanks.

SOURCE: New ink cartridges not printing

there are 4 possibilities here.
1) the ink cartridge although appearing OK may have dried out or be faulty. If you have just purchased the cartridge take it back to the place of purchase for an exchange/refund.
2) not all the packaging has been completely removed. To check this remove the cartridge from the printer & make sure that ther is no plastic wrapping still on the cartridge.
3) the print nozzle is blocked. to check this go to control panel: printers & faxes right click on your printer then select properties. select the maintanence tab then do a nozzle check test. If the black does not print try selecting the clean & then deep clean items, If this still does not work remove the cartridges from the print head & see if using a soft lint free cloth you can remove any ink build up fom both the print side & the cartridge side of the print head. If this still does not work number 4 will apply.
4) your print head has failed. If u have warranty means better replace it..

SOURCE: black ink will not print. Colours ok

Get a syringe, remove the needle, remove the ink cartridge and use the syringe to blow air GENTLY through the hole the cartridge connects to. Make sure you have a cleaning cloth to remove ink dislodged from pipe connected at the print head, do this gently to remove any obstruction and there should not be too much mess and can easily be cleaned up.

SOURCE: Brother dcp-150c, black ink wont work

Ink may be new, but their nozzles may be blocked; depending on manner of storage. To be sure apply a folded tissue paper to the ink nuzzle and press firmly. If the tissue comes off well blotted with ink it means you still have a good amount of ink in it and the nozzle is not blocked. If not blotted or scantily blotted, it means ink is really low or nozzle is blocked. To be very sure of this, place nuzzle in a plate/saucer with a bit water so that the nozzle is soaked. Leave for about 10 minutes. Then apply the tissue again. If still not well blotted it means ink is really low or empty. If new you should return it for a replacement. In the case of blocked nozzles, the procedure may be repeated over to get results.

Hi,
No many of the printers will need to have both the color and the black cartridges to work...
You will have to purchase and install a new cartridge to get it working correctly.

I changed the ink cartridge the black one but it still says cartridge empty I unplugged it and it still sais the same thing


My MFC-420CN acts up occationally. Remove the new cartridge, hold it as you would to install it, Rotate it to the right about 45°. Snap it with the back of a finger (dislodges any air bubbles in ink feed). Reinstall cartridge (ensure it is fully seated. This works for both Brother cartridges and the eforcity cartridges I've been using for the past couple of years. HTH

This might need to be reset.

Here' how...just follow the instructions..

First: Soft Reset
1. Open front cover.
2. Hold down button located under LED's until all LED's are lit.
3. Release button and make sure drum LED is off, then
4. Close cover

Second: Factory Reset
1. Turn the printer off.
2. Hold in the circular button on the front panel of the printer.
3. Turn the printer back on.
4. When the DRUM light is lit by itself let go of the button.

Black ink will not print (new out of box).


If cleaning doesn't work you should talk to your retailer or Brothers support. Don't think they can expect you to use up all ink cleaning cartridges when the machine is straight out of the box..

Printer wont print black.already replaced with new ink but still wont print black


did you take the tape off the new cartridge and is the print head burned out for the black? if you installed the diagnostic's on it then run it and see what it says, otherwise expect the print head to be cooked, however it is possible to get a bad ink cartridge try tapping it on your finger and see if ink comes out if it does not then the ink cartridge is dried out or no good, about %15 of print cartridges are bad on just about any brand printer some more than others.

No cartridge the printer say. i put new cartridge in


It mean that the black cartridge is not recognised. It the black cart is original or compatible? Some printer won't recognise cartridge, if the black and colour is not same type. Try to install the black only. Is it recognised?

I Need to Print


Sadly in a word, 'No'.

Here is the exact answer from Brother:

Your Brother machine is designed to stop ALL printing operations
(printing from the pc, printing received faxes and printing copies or reports) when any of the ink cartridges are empty. This is to ensure the life of the print head and maintain premium print quality. If the unit were to continue printing, print jobs and cleaning cycles would suction air from the dry cartridge and damage the printhead. Even if you print in black only or change the print settings to MONO or GRAYSCALE to avoid printing in color, the programmed cleaning cycles would still suction the dry cartridge, because they are programmed to clean ALL the ink nozzles.

The only way to continue printing is to replace the empty ink cartridge or cartridges.

While memory is available, black and white faxes will continue to be received into memory. If a color fax is being received, the Brother machines HANDSHAKE will request the fax be sent as black and white fax.

All faxes received into memory will automatically print once the ink cartridge is replaced.

NOTE: Brother strongly recommends that customers do not use generic ink or refill their Brother ink cartridges. Using non-Brother supplies may affect the hardware performance, print quality and machine reliability since the ink formulation in genuine Brother ink cartridges prevent smearing and clogging of the print head. The Brother limited warranty does not apply to any problem that was caused by the use of unauthorized third party ink and/or cartridges.
