Question about Brother DCP-110C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Why can't I scan when an ink tank is empty?

My Brother DCP-110C says its ink tanks are empty (they aren't but that's another problem), and because of this it won't let me scan either. I really need to do some scanning. Is this possible without buying refills?

Look into the options for your printer. you should be able to assign file extensions, i.e. .BMP, .JPG, .TIF, GIF etc to your scanned documents without printing them. No ink effects print functions or copy functions.

Window gives 'empty ink' messages but all tanks are full. Printer will not work. What should I do?

If all inks are really full, then hold the stop button as you plug in or power up to reset the error. If it doesn't work you may need a shop repair to replace a sensor or sensor board.

Print with my black cartridge ONLY

The only way is to set Grayscale Printing in the Printer Properties for DCP 110C. 

I myself prints black only using this printer. Doing the above setting will minimize ( not prevent ) the usage of colour inks.

But take note that the colour ink will deplete itself matter of time.
