For a quick fix, take you colour cartridges out give them a good shake and put them back in - Remeber to turn off any colour test prints the printer is set up to do.

Replace your color cartridge and power printer on. The color cartridge is probably empty (even though there might be a little ink left in it). Many inkjet printers require the color cartridge for composite black even if you are not printing in color.

My printer doesnt print out color, only black..


3 things will cause this. Either you are simply out of color ink, the print head is clogged or your driver is set to print only grayscale or black and white.

You can run the cleaning cycle a few times to see if you start to get it printing colors. If you printed a bunch of color stuff the last time you used it and it has set for a week or more (sometimes less) then the ink can dry and block the sprayed ink. The cleaning cycle helps clean it off and restore printing.

You can also look at the print settings from the start - then printers and then right click on your printer and then look at printing preferences. There should be a setting that says print color or gray scale or auto. It may also show you the status of the ink, if they are empty or not.

Usually after all this you will find it just needs quite a few clean cycles and away it goes.

Not printing after color cartridge ran out - new black cartridge installed.


Yes, this printer has fixed printheads and must have ink in each color to prevent damage to the printheads. Even when printing black only each color is spit in the servicing area to keep the printhead unclogged.

Mfc210c cannot print black if other colors are empty


see first picture how to cheat the printer:

plz note:
This trick might destroy the function of the color ones (c/y/m) if you doesnt replace them within time because the ph needs the ink to keep the nozzles wet! if it drys out the ph for the color ones is rotten and cant be fixed anymore!!!

Colored Ink problem


Make sure the printer settings are set properly to print in color on the PC. Even if there is a color cartridge, if the PC only tells it to print black ink it's not going to use the color cartridge.
