Brother printer (model MFC-J265W) not printing black - how do I fix?


Blocked print head nozzles
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent blocked print head nozzles. You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new print head is required.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.

My MFC290C printer will not print in black. I changed the ink and it still won't print black. I changed the color of the type and it will print in colors, just not black. I ran the cleaning cylce...


You need to call Brother at 1-877-brother and tell them your mfc is "missing black". They will tell you where to take it to get the print head replaced under Brothers' warranty. This is a VERY common problem and Brother will cover the cost to repair it.

Brother MFC-290c printer does not print black anymore. Test print page color ok but not black printing. What is the problem?


The problem is either:

* out of BLACK ink -- replace the ink-cartridge

* clogged ink-jets -- the ink is not spraying onto the paper, so run a few print-head-cleaning cycles

* dead electronics -- not triggering the jets to spray ink, so replace the printer

Brother mfc 290c i just want to print in black screen says cannot print no yellow, cyan, magenta but all i want to do is print in black


Theres a definately way out by which the color cartridges can be disabled in all brother printers. One has to very quickly press the 'menu' button then immediately press the start button and then 'up arrow' to enter management. And thereafter you can choose to disable the colors.
Better still take help of the service engineers who had visited you to provide on site warranty when your printer was under warranty. I'll get back with more details after talking to one such Engineer.
Good luck
