Brother printer (model MFC-J265W) not printing black - how do I fix?


Blocked print head nozzles
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent blocked print head nozzles. You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new print head is required.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.

You need to call Brother at 1-877-brother and tell them your mfc is "missing black". They will tell you where to take it to get the print head replaced under Brothers' warranty. This is a VERY common problem and Brother will cover the cost to repair it.

Replaced cartridges colour works no black though, cleaned heads tested and realigned, very dark prints are barely visable, normal prints got no chance of seeing black at all.

Brother MFC-290c printer does not print black anymore. Test print page color ok but not black printing. What is the problem?


The problem is either:

* out of BLACK ink -- replace the ink-cartridge

* clogged ink-jets -- the ink is not spraying onto the paper, so run a few print-head-cleaning cycles

* dead electronics -- not triggering the jets to spray ink, so replace the printer

Brother MFC-290C not printing black


Hi,


The nozzle may be blocked. So take out the colour cartridge and place its nozzle in a bit of water for about 10 mins. Bring it out and dab the nozzle with folded paper. If the tissue is blotted with the three colour it means you have unblocked the nozzle. Try now to print after returning the colour cartridge. You may need to repeat to get good results.


Thank you!!

Hi.. My Brothers MFC-290C printer is printing in pink. I need it to print black


Have you tried to clean the printer heads? usually there is a software application that will offer the ability to clean print heads, align the printer, shows the estimated ink level. This sounds like only one shade of your color head is coming thru.
