In my expirence with ink cartridges is that they can be faulty strait out of the box both Genuine and non-genuine (a lot more of the time on the non-genuine). My advice would to go out and get yourself a set of the genuine manufactures ink and to try those. If that works take the others back to place of purchase for a refund.

You may have to run the cleaning function several times to purge any other ink out of the machine.

Kodak 5300 printer: I just changed the black ink but it is printing as though there is no black ink. Ihave tries calabrating, cleaning, deep cleaning, etc. It says there is a full cartridge of ink.


From what i understand with the kyocera colour printers theres a menu option to print black as black opposed to a combination of the colours. I'm not too sure where it is, however it sounds like the kodak is very simular and is using the colours to create black instead of using the blank ink cartrage.

Black ink not working


Print out a test print to see what comes out. If the printer is printing the black and colour blocks then the printer should be OK. If not then check the black and colour inks to make sure they are OK and remove each of the cartridges and reinstall them. Then run a full cleaning cycle and reprint the test sheet. Keep doing this until all the inks are printing OK. Then run an alignment test making sure that there is plain white paper in the paper tray and adjust the printer as necessary.

Color ink cartridge says empty i just filled it


When you put in a "new" cartrage the printer sens an electrical charge to the cartrage to set it up properly. So I would treat this as a new cartrage, rather than a refilled one. Go to the printer menu and re install the ink cartrage in question, it should recognise it and start the function as a new one, good luck

Then your point is i should buy a new set of color cartrages like the 3 colors before the printing should take place then how can i set my brothers printer mfc-240c into black cartrages only no need to buy...


First - read the manual as regards printing. I notice that you can print in Black and White but I cannot find anything to say that you only need the Black ink to do this (therefore I think that I am right in saying that you need the colour cartridges).

Question - Has it worked with only the black ink before now?

As a final solution - Contact Brother direct and check out their FAQ's and/or send them an email asking if you can run the printer with Black ink only installed (I suspect the answer will be no).

If the answer to the above questions comes back as "Yes you can use Black only" (they may tell you how to set this up in which case ignore my next comments), then please supply some more information as regards what happened immediately before it stopped printing. This will help to drill down to the problem.

Printer= Epson stylus Photo R200=will not print in black


The printer is designed so that you have to have ink in all the ink cartridges. They sell more ink this way. I have the same printer and investigated this a few years ago. there is no work around. Peter
