Question about Brother MFC 240C All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have the MFC-240c and it takes 4 cartridges,black,red, blue and yellow. yesterday it started flashing that all the colors were empty(u can clearly see ink still in them) and it wont copy in black(which is all i need it to do). if the cartridges are individual, it shouldnt matter if the color ones r empty, it should still make my black and white copies. how can i bypass the color cartridges, so it will still do B&W copies? the unit is not hooked to a computer, i use it freestanding as a copier if that helps.
I have a Brother MFC-240C which will print in color but not in Black. Could you tell me why. It doesn't display any error message. However, I just replaced the color cartridges which it said were empty but not the black. What could be causing this???

I'm sure you're using the Blue button to make the copy as it should do B/W copies only.
Double-check that black cartridge is not empty.
If the printer was connected to computer then we could have used diagnostics software.
So we start with a workaround.
Check if its display menu has any option of Ink cartridge level reset or something like that. If it has then do the reset.
If there is no such Menu option, the while the printer is On, open the compartment of printer cartridges and take out the 4 cartridges
and put it back.
Does any option in display Menu comes asking if cartridges are replaced? answer yes if it asks.
Now try to do a copy.
Hope this helps.
If it doesn't work then a question, how many days before the printer was last used?
