I would like to print black with one color cartridge empty

MFC-465CN printer question. I would like to print a document in black only while one of the COLOR cartridges needs replacing. Can I bypass the INK EMPTY message and print the document? I tried selecting GRAYSCALE for the document but no luck.

If you take the empty cartridge out and put a small piece of electrical tape over the little window on the front, the printer will think the ink is full.

Yellow is not appearing in my color printings


Often, when a color is not printing, or it is not showing the correct shade/color, it is because one or more of the color ink cartridges is low or empty. See if this happens when you use new ink cartridge(s)

Out of color ink; won't print black and white.


The printer will need the colour ink to be replaced otherwise it will not print at all. You can try pressing the Start/Reset button but this will most likely not work and the only way forward is to have a colour cartridge with ink in it even though you may never use it!

Printer will not print dut to other color cartige. being empty.


The color cartridges print text that appears black by mixing the three primary colors (cyan, magenta, and yellow) to make composite black. To achieve a realistic black, large quantities of colored ink are used. Because black cartridges use much less ink to create a similar shade of black, they print more pages in black than the color cartridge.
If the color cartridges on the printer are next to empty, you will not be able to get perfect prints at all.

Please have the cartridges replaced to do the printing jobs again.

Will no print black color doc if any other color ink is empty


actually, its not. the reason is, there is a small resovoire (sp?) in the ink cartridges. if you continue to print, the nozzles will clog up, and can cause all the nozzles not to work. even when you do just black, the printer has to clean at times all the nozzles and if your nozzles are empty, air will go into the deep and dry up the excess ink.

if you are going to do primarily black prints, you should get a black and white laser for those uses only.

Brother mfc 465cn printer


If you remove the empty cartridge, you will see a small window on the egde that plugs into the printer, in the center. This is where the printer optically scans for ink levels. On the empty color cart, you can try covering that raised spline with electrical tape or by coloring it with a black permanent marker. That should fool the sensor into thinking your ink is full.

Black cartridge doesn't print


you need to do a hard reset on the printer as well it might clear up the problem and recognize the ink at its proper levels.

refer to your user manual or let us know and we will find the procedure to do so.

i have a similar model and know how picky they can be.
