Yes its perfectly solvable. All you need to do is take a little tape (duct, masking, should be heavy) and wrap it around the fretlike area of the other cartridges. This fools the printer to think its only using the black cartridge.

I NEED MAGENTA COLOR TO PRINT DOCUMENTS IN BLACK?


No. You need only the black cartridge. However, if your M cartridge is empty, it will not allow you to print. You can fool the printer into believing that your M cartridge is not empty by taking it out from the printer and putting an electrical tape/ black (light-absorbing) tape on the cartridge's 'eye' - which is at the 'back' of the cartridge through which you can actually 'see' the ink.

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.

Brother MC420CN- Black ink cartidge 'near empty' message persists


At 1 of the end sides of the cartage you will see a little window, a beam of light hits that window to determine if you need Ink..Place a small piece of Electric tape over that window and.wallah print,fax and copy away. Brother is a ripoff-A cheap printer that auto-cleans(wastes ink) and locks the whole system claiming your out of Ink or low>>>But this is sure to work! ;)

My MFC665CW will not print in black. It does


The printheads go bad on these, when several cleanings don't help, you need a new printhead. the price is more than a new machine since they sell the new mfc490 for about $120.00 and the printhead alone to repair yours is $179.00 from Brother...

Brother mfc665cw says no black ink cartridge


No, the problem is apparently the print head is bad. I just spoke to a tech on the phone. The saddest news I could have gotten...all you folks that have this problem, scrap the printer. After a new print head and finding someone to install it, its over 200.00..A tech told me himself. Buy a new printer..Craigslist has a few of them at least here in Indy, try your area.....it IS the print head when the lcd read no ink or no cartridge. I am in mourning... I love this printer.

I have a Brother DCP350 and no yellow ink. But tonight I have to print a document. Will the printer work without Yellow? I have been trying for an hour now and cannot print anything.


Hi matt651, I had the same problem with the DCP-350. As soon as one of the colour cartidges was empty, which happened frequently due to the high ink loss during the cleaning process, the machine stopped working, even when I only wanted to print using black. This is how i worked around the problem using a piece of grey card stock: The tanks have a small clear window that lets you see the ink in the cartridge. This window also triggers a photocell which sits in a little black fork at the back of each of the printer's ink cartridge slots. When the ink levels are up, the cell is blocked, thereby indicating a full cartridge. When the ink level in the cartridge drops below the photocell, the cell switches over, indicating an empty cartridge. So in order to simulate a full ink catridge I removed the offending empty one and instead slipped a piece of cardboard into its slot, thereby fooling the photocell. And hey presto, when I switched the printer back on, all ink cartridges thus manipulated were shown as being "full" and I could continue printing.
Kind regards, Rog

If you remove the empty cartridge, you will see a small window on the egde that plugs into the printer, in the center. This is where the printer optically scans for ink levels. On the empty color cart, you can try covering that raised spline with electrical tape or by coloring it with a black permanent marker. That should fool the sensor into thinking your ink is full.
