There is a diagnostic routine to purge any air from the ink tubes, done at a repair shop. When that doesn't work you need a new printhead, aprox. $79.00 plus labor.

I have a brother MFC-490CW and replaced the black ink, and my color ink has run out. It will not let me print as it says ink is low, so it won't even let me use the black? How do I print with only using...


By design, Brother printers stop all printing when one of the cartridges is empty. This is done to avoid cleaning cycles sucking air into the system, which could possibly damage the printhead.

Even if you print in black only by changing the print settings to "Mono" or "Grayscale" to avoid printing in color, cleaning cycles would still **** air from the empty color cartridge because they are programmed to clean ALL the ink nozzles. The only way to continue printing is to replace the empty ink cartridge(s).

After replacing the empty color cartridge, you could print in "Mono" or "Grayscale" to make better use of just the black ink.

I Need to Print


Sadly in a word, 'No'.

Here is the exact answer from Brother:

Your Brother machine is designed to stop ALL printing operations
(printing from the pc, printing received faxes and printing copies or reports) when any of the ink cartridges are empty. This is to ensure the life of the print head and maintain premium print quality. If the unit were to continue printing, print jobs and cleaning cycles would suction air from the dry cartridge and damage the printhead. Even if you print in black only or change the print settings to MONO or GRAYSCALE to avoid printing in color, the programmed cleaning cycles would still suction the dry cartridge, because they are programmed to clean ALL the ink nozzles.

The only way to continue printing is to replace the empty ink cartridge or cartridges.

While memory is available, black and white faxes will continue to be received into memory. If a color fax is being received, the Brother machines HANDSHAKE will request the fax be sent as black and white fax.

All faxes received into memory will automatically print once the ink cartridge is replaced.

NOTE: Brother strongly recommends that customers do not use generic ink or refill their Brother ink cartridges. Using non-Brother supplies may affect the hardware performance, print quality and machine reliability since the ink formulation in genuine Brother ink cartridges prevent smearing and clogging of the print head. The Brother limited warranty does not apply to any problem that was caused by the use of unauthorized third party ink and/or cartridges.

Canon i450 Printing issue


this clearly indicates that the printhead of your black cartridge is completely blocked and it needs internal cleaning which cannot be done by printers cleaning commands.the print head has to be removed from the printer and and then cleaned with isoprophyll and soft tissue very slowly and gently.if u dont have a technical idea taking it to the repair center is advisable.

hope this helps.....
thanks.

Black ink not working; but colors are


press menu then start mono (blue copy button) then fourtimes arrow up (tel index). machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start mono. machine will initialize the carts and do some cleaning cycles.
If you're outside can/us: after that press zero then nine. machine prints test print. If youre inside leave maintenance mode and run a test print manually.

if you cant see any bk the ph is clogged and cant be fixed anymore (because of wrong ink: pigmented ink will clogg the filter infront of the nozzels; use ONLY dye-ink for all colors!)

leaving the maintenance mode by pressing 9 then 9.

Use original brother carts: Make sure that all carts are placed well and are secured. Press menu then start mono (blue b/w copy button) then four times arrow-up (tel-index?). machine should be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4. machine will do a cart initialization and do some cleaning. Leave the maintenance mode by pressing 9 then 9 when its ready. Do a test print. If need do cleaning cycles twice.

In case you cant see mag. and cyan your printhead is defectiv and has to be replaced.

Can't get color to print-black works fine.


You are on the right way. Press MENU then the blue START MONO Button which normally starts copies in black and white modus. After that press the round button (which can be normally pushed to four sides l/r up/down) UP four times. Now you should be in maintenance modus. Follow the procedure as mentioned before. If there are more questions post it here.
