Question about Brother MFC-465CN InkJet Printer

Open Question

Brother 465CN will not print black, but prints out colors.

The printer does not print black images, just the colored parts. All ink shows good levels. It will print grey print, but not pure black. Also does not copy anything that is black.

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)

Black will not prtint. All the colors print fine on my Brother MFC 465CN. Have already: 1. Changed black ink cartridge 2. Reloaded printer driver Almost seems like some deeper issues where it...


GENERAL PRINTER TROUBLESHOOTING ADVISE:
Open the printer and remove the ink. Clean around the ink carriage and the under the ink with alcohol and a cotton swab. Pay special attention to areas with copper contacts. If the printer has a cleaning option either on the printer itself through the menu system or on the computer through the print driver, you can use that afterwards. Some printers will let you re-run the cleaning utility several times. Keep in mind too that some printers will not print, even with full ink, if the exact type of ink it expects you to have is not installed. Double check that the ink is correct against the manual or written instructions inside the printer. Not every cartridge that fits the printer necessarily works.

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.
