Question about Brother MFC-665CW All-In-One InkJet Printer
Putting paper or black tape over the sensor is not a very good idea. If
the ink runs out 100% the machine cannot detect it. If you get air in
the ink tubes, and the air reaches the print head, best case senerio is
you'll have to do several cleanings with a new cartridge to get that
colour working again. Worst case senerio, the air reaches the head, the
owner stops using the machine for several weeks or a month, several
cleanings are performed but the head had permenantly clogged nozzles,
Brother leaves some small amount of ink in empty cartridges for a good
This IS a good thing to do if you want to permenantly stop using colour though.

I am sure this is the same problem as the 440cn. each cartridge has an optical window on it where the sensor measures the ink level. what u do is put a folded piece of paper over this window and reinsert the cartridge. this makes the sensor think that cartridge is full and should reset the ink meter. the printer should work fine.
