My color ink jet is empty--I have put a new black cartridge in, and want to print only in black but cannot override the printer saying the color one is empty--I need to print stuff for work-how do I do...

with that printer you have to have both cartridges in the printer if you have the old color cartridges put it in and see if that works but more the likely you are gonna have to buy a new color cartridge

Can't print

Weather you use color or not the system is tied togeather to use them both. A laser printer however would have been the best choice for you if you did not want color. However weather you use color or not the printhead in this unit is daisy chained thus the printer will not start without the color cartridge due to print head damage that can be caused by a dry print head.

If both cartridges are empty its because you have used color at one point.

Replaced color cartiage, now only one color prints, red? Help

Try to check the level of your ink in your color catridge maybe is running low or empty then if its empty then remove the catridge then replace another color catridge full of ink then run your printer again. If you successfully installed new ink catridge then it will automatically reset the level of your ink monitor to full.

Color ink cartridge says empty i just filled it

When you put in a "new" cartrage the printer sens an electrical charge to the cartrage to set it up properly. So I would treat this as a new cartrage, rather than a refilled one. Go to the printer menu and re install the ink cartrage in question, it should recognise it and start the function as a new one, good luck

Put a new black ink cartridge the model mfc240c will not let us print says color cartridges are empty but we only want bkack and white print why wont it work

Most likely because it uses color as well with the black. Some printers will not allow only 1 cartridge. You need both.
Thanks and keep me posted,
