Brother mfc3360 blank ink doesn't print

I ran out of colored cartridges. When I replaced them, the black ink which was half full, didn't print. It just keeps giving me the option to clean but it still won't print black. Any help would be appreciated. Thnaks!`

    Did you try to properly attach the black cartridge on its place and change the print settings to grayscale?
    Cheers

If a cartridge is expended, you must replace it to be able to print. If a cartridge is low, you can continue printing until a cartridge needs replacement. You cannot print or copy when an ink cartridge is expended even if the other cartridges are not expendedI have come across this issue many times and unforunately you have to replace the colour carts in order to continue to use the printer.

Brother mfc 3360 model mostly problem is no printout, pls soluti


Hi!

If one or more of the ink colors are missing from pages printed by your machine (i.e. received faxes, copies and/or documents printed from the PC etc), nozzles in the print head may be clogged, or the ink cartridge in question may not be installed correctly. Verifying that the ink cartridges are installed correctly and/or cleaning the print head may resolve this problem.

To verify the ink cartridges are installed correctly follow the steps listed below:

Open the ink cartridge cover and reinstall the ink cartridge. Open each lock release lever and push it until it clicks, and then close the ink cartridge cover.

The LCD may then display:
Did you change xxxxxx? Yes No.
The LCD may display this question for the color(s) that was replaced.
Select Yes or No by pressing arrow keys or 1/2 or "+/-" key.

After all the correct selections are made, the machine will then go into a cleaning.

The machine should begin cleaning automatically, and the LCD will alternately show "CLEANING" and "PLEASE WAIT". When the machine completes its cleaning cycle, the LCD will go back to standby mode automatically. Print the Print Quality Check Sheet and see if all colors are present:


Press the Ink or Ink Management key.
Use the up or down navigation key to select Test Print.
Press OK to confirm your choice.
Use the up or down navigation key to select Print Quality.
Press OK to confirm your choice. Press the Color key to print the Test Sheet.

If one or more of the colors is still missing from the printed page, cleaning the print head may resolve this problem. When cleaning the print head, you are given the option to clean BLACK ONLY, one of the three colors (CYAN, YELLOW, or MAGENTA), or all four colors at once. For this issue we recommend cleaning only the affected color. If more than one color is missing then select ALL.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Printer wont print black.already replaced with new ink but still wont print black


did you take the tape off the new cartridge and is the print head burned out for the black? if you installed the diagnostic's on it then run it and see what it says, otherwise expect the print head to be cooked, however it is possible to get a bad ink cartridge try tapping it on your finger and see if ink comes out if it does not then the ink cartridge is dried out or no good, about %15 of print cartridges are bad on just about any brand printer some more than others.

See if there is a printer software setup option that will allow you to set B/W printing only. If not you may be out of luck. Could be this particular print device requires all colors available.

No, they cannot be cleaned once you lose the color completely. You'll need to replace the head.

Print faded after replacing black cartridge Brother 240C


The print heads don't appreciate being out of ink so the Brother printer has sensors to prevent that but the tape defeated that prevention. Maybe more cleanings or maybe a cartridge with printhead cleaning solution will help. Otherwise, I fear a new printer.

Black ink not working; but colors are


Use a original brother ink cart. Do the cleaning twice. If there is no more black blocks to see, the printhead is crashed!
