    My Brother DCP-130C printer won't print in black even though it
    has a brand new cartridge in. The C/M/Y are all printing fine, just not the black.
    Any ideas?

After replacing the ink cartridges it took several cleans to come good. I have no idea how to "manually" clean the heads. So I told the printer to do it many (about 7) times. It eventually worked

What printer model are you referring to?

    If you are referring to Brother DPC130c it is printer head problem because the cartridges of this printer are separate from its head so definitely it's the head of the printer.

Perhaps your colour ink levels are low, but only the yellow and magenta. Filling your own cartridges lets you just fill the colours that are low or out. Do you fill your own? If not you may have to replace colour one. Just to be sure, manually clean the printheads and the cartridge heads with solution and cotton buds (q tips). If it still does same, print test pattern to check it is definitely the same issue, and replace colour ink or refill.

Hi There, I have a brother DCP-130c printer and one of the colour ink has run out. I need to be able to print with just black. Is there a way to print without replacing colour ink?


When you click on print, click on print preferences. As shown in image below.

On the preferences window click on Paper Quality tab and click on black and white. As shown below.

Click on OK and then click on print.



Note: Few new printers wont print till you replace the empty cartridges.

Regards,
Shrey

Have two Brother DCP-145C printers and use compatible inks. Now the yellow won't print in either machine. Despite trying cleaning cycles and replacing the yellow cartridges, the test print will not show...


100% you need to replace the print head,in the future use only original cartrige brother not refill or compatible cartridge.If you want to replace the print head you need to take care is difficult to change the print head,you must to unzip the all printer.If a have been useful please give me a vote.

MFC-440CN printer. Colors are not proper


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:

www.monstertoners.com/dcp-130c.html?gclid=CN2s_uiEsJgCFRIcawodQz_rUg

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 DCP-130C refuses to print the magenta ink


If you don't print at least once a month, you will clog the machine. You unfortunately have to get it fixed by a professional or get a new printer. Sorry!
