My status monitor says that all my colour supply levels are full. But the printer won't print in colour. Only black & white. Even when I choose the "print in colour" option. This hasn't happened before.

Brother Inkjet printers' printheads are very sensitive, using non-genuine ink clots the printhead. Try to clean the head by pressing the ink maintenance button. Sometimes you need to clean several times.

In the Printer Settings you have to leave it as '"Print in Color" always not Black even if you want to print B&W.

Replaced black toner..now printer won't print any


In this case, actually it is not the Black toner that got depleted. Here the message being displayed indicate that one of the color Toner supply need to be replaced as it got depleted and currently the printer is printing in Black and white using the Black toner cartridge.

in this case, to troubleshoot these issues please try performing the following and check for the results.

* 1. Check for the level of the toner cartridges:

a) Check from the HP Toolbox application. Here are the steps to be performed from your PC:

* Access the Toolbox software.
* Select the Status tab.
* Select the Device status option.

Here you can check for the supplies status in terms of the % remaining for each toner cartridges.

b) By checking the supplies status from the printer control panel display.

On the printer display when printer is in Ready mode the supplies status can be checked from the supplies level indicator. Each toner cartridge and the Imaging drum level will be indicated by a bar which varies according to the level of the supplies present.

c) Print the supplies status page from the printer.

* On the printer control panel menu, press Menu .
* Use the (Right Arrow) button to select Reports, and then press Enter .
* Use the (Right Arrow) button to select Supplies Status, and then press Enter .

If any of the color toner cartridges and the Imaging drum have a low supply level replace them with genuine HP print cartridges.

The part numbers of the consumables are as follows:

* Black print cartridge - Q3960A
* Cyan print cartridge - Q3971A
* Magenta print cartridge - Q3973A
* Yellow print cartridge - Q3972A
* Imaging Drum - Q3964A

Hp color laserjet 2600 n it will not let me print


There is an override sequence and it works well. Press the select button (checkmark) to indicate Main menu. Press right-arrow (RA) to select System Setup. Press Select , then RA to Print Quality, Hit select. RA to Replace supplies and hit Select. Now, RA to Override Out and Select. Confirm with Select again. Your 2600n will now run even with an empty toner cartridge.

Need to print with black cartirdge only.


just try to print a black and white, you can do that when you print a document. There is a window that will pop up about to print, click on properties just beside the ame of your printer and go to paper/quality bar menu there you should see a choices between color and black&white. Just choose black & white and try printing.

Red "drop" shaped light blinking


On my C62 I it usually shows the "Status Monitor" when trying to print, which shows the levels for B/W & Colour.
If not go to CP/Printers, select the C62 (make sure ON) then Properties, then the Printing Prefs button (at bottom). The Main tab usually has this fill level indicator; also try the Maintenance Tab Status Monitor option. These are real awkward to find from scratch but useful when you get to know they're there.

Also if you remove and replace a cartridge you are usually given the option to say whether it is a new or old cartridge - choose new if you know it's nearly full. Don't take NO for an answer to their stupid questions!!!

I had same problem it wont print with just black even by using the settings.You can trick it into thinking the color cartridge are full by taking out the color cartridge and taping over the clear part of the cartridge were you can see the level of ink.Thats how the machine knows weather or not the ink is full by looking through the glass by either light or some other way and if its blocked it thinks its full.

Colour printing


Check the following thread, it might apply to your problem. and just as a printer can be fooled to show a low level ink, I guess it can happen the other way around. http://www.fixya.com/problems-solutions/t103191,p342983/Epson-Stylus-Photo-R300-InkJet-Printer.aspx Good luck
