I'd like to help if I can. These printers have 4 cartridges. One black, one magenta (reddish), one cyan (blue) and one (yellow). The text and pictures are printed with a combination of these inks. When one or more is low, printing will be as you described. Your situation seems to be that you are out of black (so the cyan is trying to help and can only print blue) and you are probably out of yellow so the magenta is trying to do what it can. If you'll change all of the cartridges, I am pretty sure that you will have your problem solved.

Finally, there is a great place to get cartridges for your printer. The link is:

You can buy a multi-pak consisting of 4 black and 2 each of the three colors for $39.95 plus s/h

I use the cartridges and they have proven to be reliable.

If my help has been satisfactory, please give me your rating.

Brother MFC-440CN - print quality terrible, almost non-existent in spite of many cleaning operations.


It sounds like the printhead needs to be replaced. Brother may cover the cost of repair if you call them at 877-276-8437 and tell them the prints are "missing black ink". Very common problem that a new printhead should fix.

I am tired of this mfc 440cn not printing in black only mode if the colors are empty, even one. I want to print and work with the black only cartridge. How can I get it to print in that mode only. ie: ...


Yes! There is a way around the problem. On each ink cartridge there is a narrow section that a sensor in the printer reads to decide when the ink is low. Cover that spot with a piece of black electrical tape to fool the sensor and you can keep printing. This page has good pictures showing what to do.

Brother mfc-440cn not recognizing black cartridge


The following may work: remove all the ink supplies. Remove the printhead and soak it for about 5 minutes in 0.5" of very hot water. Gently blot the printhead on a soft damp paper towel to remove the excess water, then replace in the printer and then reinstall the ink supplies.

Normal 0 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

Prints all yellow, with some blue and black, no brown


the problem is very simple the magenta ink the cartridge is over or the head is been blocked from where the magenta ink comes out,
because red colour requires ---yellow plus magenta(pink)----to make it red.and ----dark yellow plus magenta(pink) -------- for brown colour.
