I can't figure out how to access the cleaning program on my Brother MFC 440CN all in one printer scanner copier fax. On my older Brother printer scanner copier unit, there was an option to clean, by pushing a button on the unit, but I cannot figure out how to do it on this machine. Am I missing something?

If your black ink was generic, its possible that the ink clogged up the nozzles. its kind of like eating very greasy foods continuously, and the arteries slowly close up, and when it finally does, you can get a heart attack.

probably the printhead will need to get replaced or its possible your cleaning station will need to get replaced.

My printer will not print anything. I have a full cartridge of black ink, but low on the other colors. Will it not print with the colored ink out?


Assuming the test print page prints using the black ink, printers have a setting that allows you to select black and white printing. If you need further help you need to include the manufacturer and brand of the printer. If the test page doesn't print the black ink and Since you say you have a full black ink cartridge I would also check that you completely removed the plastic tab/sticker that covered the hole the the inks comes out of and that the ink cartridge is securly installed.

I had a Epson printer that would not print or even allow me to use the scanner because the colored ink was out. Even though I had full black ink, it still would not let me print until i replaced the colored ink.

Ran out of color ink on cnnon mx310 ... want to


If when you attempt to print only with the black cartridge installed but it won't print, then this specific printer requires that color ink also be installed. Typical with most inkjets.

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.
