Can't print in black and white

Dear experts,

I have a Brother DCP-130C all-in-one scanner/printer. I am out of color ink, but do not need color printing of any kind. I only wish to print black and white documents.

The display keeps flashing messages informing me that I am out of color ink, and it won't let me print anything with the full black ink cartridge I just bought.

How can I print with just black ink?

Cheers,
Aaron

    Thanks for the reply, Jennerina. I actually did a little more digging and found a troubleshooting page on the Brother website (hidden in the directory tree).

    The Brother site says that the printer is programmed to stop functioning when even one of the cartridges runs out. Seems like crap design to me, but I heard it from the horse's (read, "asses") mouth.

    Cheers,
    Aaron

Hi Aaron,

There should be a setting in your PREFERENCES that allow you to set it to black print only. Select it as your default setting so that you don't have to change the settings each time you print.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

Hi There, I have a brother DCP-130c printer and one of the colour ink has run out. I need to be able to print with just black. Is there a way to print without replacing colour ink?


When you click on print, click on print preferences. As shown in image below.

On the preferences window click on Paper Quality tab and click on black and white. As shown below.

Click on OK and then click on print.



Note: Few new printers wont print till you replace the empty cartridges.

Regards,
Shrey

Brother DCP-130C refuses to print the magenta ink


If you don't print at least once a month, you will clog the machine. You unfortunately have to get it fixed by a professional or get a new printer. Sorry!

Printing


for what?

Do you want to use bk INK only?

Or do you want to print SOMETHING in bk and next time in color?

If you would like to print in bk only you have to click greyscale within the printer properties.

Here are some more infos:
