Question about Brother MultiFunction Center MFC-440CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
Printer says no black cartridge i have brother mfc 440
Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

The way the MFC-440 (and lots of other inkjets) detect ink level is by shining a tiny light through a window on each cartridge. If the light passes through then the printer assumes the cartridge is empty.
To fool the printer, take a tiny piece of electrical tape or paper and stuff it into the window on the cartridge. I prefer tape so it doesn't come off inside the printer. Now, the printer will assume the ink is full and should allow you to print with the remaining colors.
