Question about Brother Multi-Function Center MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have a full black ink cartridge and an empty cyan cartridge. I only need to use the black now; how do I get it keep printing when one of the colors is empty?
Theres a simple trick to cheat the machine.
you will definitly destroy the printhead when doing so for a longer periode!
You have to put some black adhesive tape around the middle part where you can see this black palstic flag inside the cart. This flag signals the printer that the cart is insert and later on when the ink is down to give the waring: near empty.
I do give you the advice to do another but saver cheating:
You can refill the cart with a mixture of 8 ml destill water and 3ml 85%-Glycerol (e. g. Glycerin alc. which can be bought at a drugstore for a few cents). Shake the mixture well (within the syringe) before refilling the cart.
See pics here how to do so (LC1000):

(brother has changed the construction of the carts! If you can see a plastic quad in the middle of the cart, you have to drill the hole just behind the air valve (white plastic looking out of the cart)
