    Check your gray scale settings on the printer's menu and enable black. If it does not work, there must be something wrong with other parts of your printer such as the roller transfer. You can try simple troubleshooting here.

I have a brother DCP-165C and it is not printing black.


Hi,

The nozzle may be blocked. So take out the colour cartridge and place its nozzle in a bit of water for about 10 mins. Bring it out and dab the nozzle with folded paper. If the tissue is blotted with the three colour it means you have unblocked the nozzle. Try now to print after returning the colour cartridge. You may need to repeat to get good results.

Thank you!!

How can i fix my printer which does not print those that are colored black. my printer is brother dcp-165c. whenever i print a document, the printed output does not show any black ink


there is a strong chance that either the black cartridge has run out and will need replacing or the cartridge itself is blocked. i would first check the manual on the printer for an option to clean the cartridges.

failing this within the software on your PC for the printer there should be an option to clean the cartridges. this should sort the problem out.

if not i would purchase a new cartridge for the printer and replace the one that is in it at present to see if this resolves it.

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.
