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.

Can i print documents using black ink only when other inks are empty?


All the ink cartridges need to have ink in them to allow you to print, even if you only want to print in black only.

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 have a brother MFC-490CW and replaced the black ink, and my color ink has run out. It will not let me print as it says ink is low, so it won't even let me use the black? How do I print with only using...


By design, Brother printers stop all printing when one of the cartridges is empty. This is done to avoid cleaning cycles sucking air into the system, which could possibly damage the printhead.

Even if you print in black only by changing the print settings to "Mono" or "Grayscale" to avoid printing in color, cleaning cycles would still **** air from the empty color cartridge because they are programmed to clean ALL the ink nozzles. The only way to continue printing is to replace the empty ink cartridge(s).

After replacing the empty color cartridge, you could print in "Mono" or "Grayscale" to make better use of just the black ink.

My printer will not work if one of inks is out and will not have otion for black only


This is a known problem with this printer, functions such as fax and copy will also be unavailable if the ink is low.

The low ink alert will appear even though the cartridge is not empty.

Here is the solution:

The ink cartridge has a sensor on the bottom, between the nozzles.
cut a small piece of tape and tape over the sensor.
The printer will now think the cartridge is full.

This will allow you to use every function of the printer regardless of how much ink you have. The cartridge will truly be empty when your print outs come out blank.

Won't print unless all ink cartridges have ink.


Try changing it in the properties section under device settings
or go to color management if you have it and change the setting to black only,.

Empty ink cartridge message


I replaced the old cartridge with a new one (Magenta) and it still asks me to replace it with a new cartridge.  
For 1 colour which is LOW, it stopped me completely from PRINTING or COPYING at all. 
Any clues how to fix this?
