Most likely you cannot.

The Power on Self Test of the printer checks the ink levels. If they are not acceptable then printing is blocked.

The black cartridge (Brother LC51) doesn't print on my Brother MFC 685CW. The other 3 cartridges print just fine and passed the Print Quality Check. Running clean cycle doesn't help


In order to print in Black and White using grayscale, you will need to adjust the printing preferences within the driver. To change the printer properties complete the following steps:


1. Open the Printers Folder:


  • Windows 2000: Click Start => Settings => Printers.


  • Windows XP: Click Start => Printers and Faxes.


  • Windows Vista: Click the Start button => Control Panel => Hardware and Sound => Printers.


  • Windows 7: Click the Start button => Devices and Printers.


2. Right click on the Brother printer driver and left click Printing Preferences.


3. Click the Advanced tab.


4. Select Grayscale.


5. Click APPLY => OK. Your printer will now print in grayscale.

I have just replaced the black cartridge of my Brother 685CW printer and fax. Prompt says 'No cartridge". tried all the solutions above to no avail. I need to use printer urgently. Please help. Moh.


Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command , can be an issue with ink drying , can also be poor ink cartridge contacts

I am unable to print black documents on my mfc-685cw printer. i changed the ink, and still unable to print. it will print in all other colors but black


I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink or toner cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled (the absolute worst possible choice) or third party cartridges (2nd. Worst possible choice) that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks or toner causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead or photo conductors.
If you are using factory new ink or toner cartridges, then please call the manufacturer’s Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Brother mfc-685cw ran out of black ink


I had this problem and after shaking the cartridges (all of them) and putting them back, turning the machine on and off I noticed the printer wire was under one of the feet of the machine. One of these things worked and I believe it was the cable under the machine confusing the machine..............not very technical I know but just in case,,,,,,,,,,,fingers crossed

Black cartridge doesn't print


you need to do a hard reset on the printer as well it might clear up the problem and recognize the ink at its proper levels.

refer to your user manual or let us know and we will find the procedure to do so.

i have a similar model and know how picky they can be.
