Hi,

even if you are printing only in black, some colours would be mixed. and the main color that is being used for this purpose is cyan. so you will have to change the cyan cartridge to get rid of this problem.

thanks and regards

Brother MF 5440CN USB Printer won't print. Says "Ink Empty Cyn" and then "Ink Empty Yellow" Replace Ink There is ink in the cartridges.


While there may be ink in the cartidges, your printer is getting a signal from the cartidge that it's near empty. There is no real workaround for this; you just have to replace the cartridge(s). If you use a LOT of ink, you might consider installing a CIS (continuous ink system) now made for most printers. You will save a lot of money over time.

What you describe is typical.

My cyan cartridge shows as empty. My black


No. You need all the cartridges installed with functioning chips for your printer to work. The reason why you need all the colors when all you print is black is because a small amount of color prints when you print black. The manufacturers want to make up their R&D costs on the printers by selling lots of expensive ink.

The cyan and magenta cartidges have run out but I cannot print in black only, since a staus window appears telling me to replace cartridge the cyan and magenta and will not let me continue to print in...


You can't print in black only mode because printer need all cartridges not empty to initialized and working.Don't try to refill this cartridges, it's have a chip and you need to reset it too.Just look in your are for non OEM ink cartridges.Thea are 2-3 times cheaper.

Printer wont continue printing if ONE cartridge is empty


Sorry to say this, I had a Canon Pixma and it wouldn't print unless you replaced empty cartridge, although I did have some success for a while longer by pressing OK button?

Won't print with just black ink cartridge


When you print, in the printing window, click properties, then click advanced. Most times you can select to print using black cartridge only. Unfortunately you will need to replace to get the printer working. If you need further assistance let me know.
Thank you,
Lee

Error message is telling us we are out of ink we just replaced


This problem needs to be addressed by an Epson service center. It needs disassembled and probably needs parts replaced that the leaking ink damaged. Sorry.

Printer Designjet 110 Plus not working


Ink supplies Description HP part number 11 Black Printhead C4810A 11 Cyan Printhead C4811A 11 Magenta Printhead C4812A 11 Yellow Printhead C4813A 10 Black Ink Cartridge C4844A 82 Cyan Ink Cartridge C4911A 82 Magenta Ink Cartridge C4912A 82 Yellow Ink Cartridge C4913A
alot of printers now if the ink in the cartidge is the first ones placed in the system from the box are those that are only half full if not less depending on the maker but I know HP only fills their cartidges only just under the half way make but the printer sees it as a new cartrige because of the chips programming.

Have you tryed to turn the power of and let is sit for about 5 mins and turn it back on with the same result? (ushally a yellow error light is on)

Also if you can find the settings to only print in black and white on the printers properties that might also work as well for a temp fix.

But ushally once one ink runs out it likes to do that you where correct with the "is it because of the finished color cartidges.." either that or the carts all have finally expired.

Nice printer by the way.

But your best way to do it would be to replace the color carts and if not reasonable to do now there is also a way to reset the color carts so that the printer thinks that there is ink in them as well.

hope this helps you a bit if you need more info please let us know.
