Question about Brother MFC 490cw Color Inkjet Multi-Function Printer
Hello there tyler_1231.
Here's your GEEK-steer ...
The sad fact is: some printers require ALL (including color) cartridges be installed in order to print (even if only B&W), and some don't. Based on your stated printer's display messages, yours apparently falls into the former.
Just for good measure though, have tried ensuring the setting in the printer's config is set to "black & white"/"greyscale" versus color? If so, I'd say you're at this point forced to make a trip to the supply store/website.
Good luck, and thanks in advance for posting back ...
