Why when press color copy the non color not print are not being printed


If your question means that you are not getting "nice" color copy ... it may be possible that your (color) ink is running low or empty. For instance, if your black ink is low or empty, you will not get the black colors printed ...
So, check to see if your ink cartridges are running low or empty. And if so, see if a (new) replacement cartridge will give you the same result.

The Lexmark Impact S305 printer requires all the cartridges to have ink in them to continue printing - even if you're printing using black ink only. To print true black, you actually use some of the color ink.
Note: Leaving the color cartridge empty or dry isn't good for the printer. It can lead to poor print quality if you want to print color in the future.

I want to use Black ink only but it will not print because the colors are empty. Do I need to replace all cartridges (LC61) for Brothers print, copy, fax machine. Thanks


If you don't want to replace the color cartridges, you can fool the printer instead. Sensors in the printer shine light through a thin area on the cartridges. The empty (or even just low, even though there may be plenty of ink still inside) cartridges allow the light to get through, the printer sees the empty cartridges, and it won't print anymore. You can cover this part of the cartridge with a piece of black electrical tape to block the light. Voila! No light gets through and the printer thinks you have full cartridges again. This site has pictures showing where to put the tape. I've used this trick on the printer we have here in our office and it works great.

I never use any colour other than black yet I have to purcgase cyan, magneta, and yellow when my black cartridge is empty. Is it possible to overcome this problem, ? My printer isa DCP135C


You don't have to replace the coloured cartridges if you only use black. But if you print something that is not pure black then it will use the other colors. For expample, if you print on a gray scale, since this is a color printer it will use the colored cartridges to get the gray color. The colored printer will only use the black ink for pure black colours. If you just use black to print, why not use an inkjet printer that just prints black or uses black cartridge. It is available in the market.

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.

Wont copy in black because color cartridges are empty


Hi,

I'm sure you're using the Blue button to make the copy as it should do B/W copies only.
Double-check that black cartridge is not empty.

If the printer was connected to computer then we could have used diagnostics software.

So we start with a workaround.
Check if its display menu has any option of Ink cartridge level reset or something like that. If it has then do the reset.

If there is no such Menu option, the while the printer is On, open the compartment of printer cartridges and take out the 4 cartridges
and put it back.
Does any option in display Menu comes asking if cartridges are replaced? answer yes if it asks.

Now try to do a copy.

Hope this helps.
If it doesn't work then a question, how many days before the printer was last used?
