My MFC665CW will not print in black. It does

My MFC665CW will not print in black. It does print the colors on a document but no black.
I had changed to a new, sealed black cartridge as well as blue and yellow.
When it would not print black, I installed another, new, sealed black cartridge. Still no black on the document.
I used a straightened paper clip and inserted into the little tube and inserted it also into the cartridge: still no black printing.

Any suggestions?

The printheads go bad on these, when several cleanings don't help, you need a new printhead. the price is more than a new machine since they sell the new mfc490 for about $120.00 and the printhead alone to repair yours is $179.00 from Brother...

Even though my black cartridge is full, my black and white documents are so light they are unreadable. My color cartridges are close to being empty. Can this be the cause?


printers use all cartridges to get the correct colour even black
best get a new colour cartridge then realign the printer with a test pattern

Hp printer 7450 won't print colored text from a word document. test page shows colors on the windows logo flag. changed the ink cartridge....color one that is....no help i will try to print something else...


It may be set for grayscale (black and white) in the print properties. Go into the print properties in Word and look for a color or black and white setting, either under Color Management or Advanced. Set it for color, and then print your color document.

My HP 3550 won't print black when it is out of a color.


restore the properties.... set as "print in grey scale" or "print color as b/w images"...
also if the print become less or more dark you can change the settings to print whit more intensity or less...
there is no necesary change all your documents as "watter ink" only change the print options to fade to black

Samsung CLP-315 colour laser printer - is it true that you cannot print only with the black toner cartridge, if one or more of the colour cartridges is empty? I only need to print black!


Yes, it is true that most of Color printers will not allow you to print document if one or more of the recommended Cartridge of the printer is empty or removed from the printer. for printing only black, the better option will be to change your printer settings while printing a document. ex: when on a document ,and your press Ctrl+P for document printing, there is a option where you can select print color as black and the printer will print your document in Black only.

My HP Officejet 7410 All-in-One Inkjet Printer is doing the following: 1) It prints in color even when the document is black and white (using up the color ink) 2) It prints much more slowly than it did...


go into your driver and change your color preferences to black and white. that way when you want to print color you actually have to tell it to do so. which will save your color ink, and will print much faster. full color printing of a black and white document uses all ink colors except black to make what is called process black.

Printer will not print in color


To select a specific document to print in color, open the document, Photo, etc, to print, select "print", then select "printing preferences" in the dialog box, select "color". This will print that specific document in color, but the setting will default back to B&W
Now, just FYI,
You absolutely need to set the default color, in your printing preferences - usually to Black and white -to save extra costs. The default setting is ALWAYS color when the driver is installed.. so even if you are printing a word document, the printer will "make" black out of the other colors, thus costing a lot of extra $$. Your settting has apparently been changed appropriately.
This is how it's set the default color should you ever want to change it, "right click" your printer icon in "Printers and faxes" select properties, select "printing preferences", and you will see, in the bottom left corner, the color selector, select "B&W", then select "apply", and close your dialog box. EVERYTHING will now print in B&W, unless you select otherwise, or vice versa if you swith it to color.
I hope that clears it up. Please rate my response
