    I have a "brother DCP -115C" printer.
    So far I was happy with it.
    Now, I'm getting really upset with it:
    Althought the ink cartridge for black is full I cannot
    print a simple black and white document.
    Its display is showing "Ink Empty Yellow" and "Replace Ink".

    I do not want to buy new yellow ink because I simply
    do not use colours. It really annoys me that brother tries
    to make me wasting money and ink.

    Does anyone know how to make the printer print WITHOUT
    replacing the empty yellow ink cartridge (it is actually
    not empty, maybe 1/5 left)?

If you buy a printer with both a color cartridge, and a black cartridge, you must have both cartridges in the printer for it to work. I don't know of any ink jet or lazer printer that will work without all cartridges installed and in goo shape.

Is there any way to continue to print in BLACK AND WHITE when he colored ink has run out...((5 of the time I print in B&W


I'm afraid not. Most colour printers print what is known as 4 colour black to give a deeper more solid black, so all the coloured inks as well as black are needed to print a black text or image.

Try unplugging printer from the power and connecting it back.

Try also extracting all toners and putting toners back.

Colour cartridge missing but I only want to print


No you cannot. Each one of your cartridges is smart chipped. When this cartridge registers as empty it acts as an on/off switch thus turning the printer off.'

You need to replace the empty cartridge in order to print.

Go printer settings and check option to print only black.

I want to print black only


On the programs that you want to print off you can select to print in black and white or grayscale.Check File>print setup>printing properties.
if it still wont allow you to print remove the empty colour cartriges and leave only black.
