Question about Brother Multi-Function Center MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer
My printer continues to say I need to change the black ink because it is empty. It is almost full. I took it out and put it back in and now it says that there is no cartridge in my printer.
What should I do next?

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)

SOURCE: Black ink
The PGBK cartridge is a pigment black ink, while the others use a dye for coloration. The pigment black is used when printing text and other documents. The dye ink is used when printing photos and other colored documents. The dye black is used in conjunction with the color (dye) inks to provide tinting and color gradation, and therefore is not used nearly as much as the pigment black unless you use your printer only for printing photos.
If you're printing text and documents, you will need to buy another pigment black (PGBK) cartridge.
