Reset ink level counter using hardware resetter. Or use CISS chip with autoreset function.

    Try to find at ebay. I suggest better you use CISS, you don't need unplug and plug ink tank again.

I think that the Canon printers require the colour cartridge to be full so as to print B&W. In Some makes like epson it is possible to continue printing in B&W even if the colour ink is down.
Open properties of the printer and check to see the tools provided, if there is any link to cut off the colour inks .

Printing in just black and white


Epson,. has it rigged, that you must have ink in all the cartridges.............! Doesnt make a difference, if you are printing black and white ONLY.

You have to replace them.

Good Luck......

One colour cartridge on epsom sx200 is empty yet it wont allow me to print in black only


umm... this is not a solution because I don't think there is one apart frombuying new inks. Epson and all other inkjet printers do this to preventthe coloured print head nozzles from getting blocked. If they are notused for a long time the ink dries up and blocks the nozzles. Epsonrecommends printingat least once a month with all colours to prevent this. Printing inblack only option will only work if the colored inks are OK. Wheneverthe printeris turned on it performs a head clean, this is why the coloured inksget used over time even though they are not used for printing.

Ink


No, the new printers do not mix the ink when the black has run out. when the ink is out it is out and needs replacing. The modern range of printers are far more advanced in their technology and require all inks to be full in order to work correctly.

"Change cartridge" light stay's on after replacement


What exactly does the status monitor say? Your printer may have a problem with the counter or if the machine simply does not see the cart there could be an issue with the print head or the main board.

Printer not printing


Unfortunately, like most multi cartridge ink jet printers when one ink is empty the printer will cease printing regardless of whether you just want to print in black and white and you have plenty of black ink left. I have heard of people tricking the printer into believing the cartridge is full by placing coloured tape etc in front of the ink sensing device but I am not sure how the Brother senses the ink levels as i have some aftermarket ink cartridges for mine which seem to be completely non-opaque (unlike the originals). The need to have colour cartridges in even if you only ever print with black ink is good news for Brother as the MFC-210c uses a large amount of ink during it's routine cleaning cycles (that you cant stop) and will empty all 3 cartridges in under 6 months without ever printer a single drop of colour ink. Sorry about all the bad news, at least your not alone......
