Three reasons -

If your print driver is set to color. It will use all the colors to make black.

Because the machine is ink jet it needs to clean the print head to stop it from drying out. It will use color ink to flush the print head every two days.

When ever in receives a fax it will use some color when printing a fax, particularly Cyan.

If you only wish to print or receive faxes in black there is now a version of Brother fax that only uses black ink and has no color inks. However it may not be available in your region. If you try and cheat the system you will only kill your print head.

Empty color cartridge error


The printer needs all cartridges with sufficient ink levels for you to be able to print. The printer will prime every once in a while thus the need for all cartridges to have ink - this will prevent damaging the printhead.

How do i change my ink cartridge on my mfc-295cn


Hello and welcome to FixYa;

  1. Open the ink cartridge cover. If one or more ink cartridges is empty (for example Black), the LCD shows "Cannot Print (Replace BK Ink)" or "B&W Print Only."

  2. Press down on the release lever to unlock it and take out the ink cartridge for the color shown on the LCD.

  3. Open the new ink cartridge bag for the color shown on the LCD, and then take out the ink cartridge.

  4. Turn the green knob on the protective yellow cap clockwise to release the vacuum seal, then remove the cap (1). You must hold the ink cartridge as indicated in the picture below.

  5. Each color has its own correct position. Insert the ink cartridge in the direction of the arrow on the label.

  6. Gently push in the ink cartridge until it clicks, and then close the ink cartridge cover.

  7. The machine will automatically reset the ink level.

How do I change the toner?


The Fax-2480c does not use toner cartridges.
This is an inkjet and so uses ink cartridges.

There are 4 cartridges, black, yellow, cyan (blue) and magenta (red). If any of these cartridges are empty, you need replace them.

This machine takes LC-51 cartridges.
You're probably out of warranty so jsut get refills... it's cheaper

How do I override a message empty color cartridge,


You cannot override the message, yellow may have ink in it, but it's probably dried up inside.

I don't use the color printing yet the color cartridges are empty


It's all a scam. I have the same problem and I called Brother and they told me that the machine uses color ink to clean itself. It costs more to replace these color cartridges then to buy a new one, which is what I'm going to do. Buy a black and white from a different company. It's all a scam to get you to spend money on their color ink that you don't use.

Re install ink


I know this is a dumb question but did you remove the tape off he bottom of the ink cartridge? Also sometimes if you are using a generic ink cartridge the machine may not recognize it. Make sure the cartridge is seated in properly and that it is in the correct location. (not color spot). Hope this helps. John

Brother Intellifax 1840C the only one thing you can to do is stick masking tape around the cartridge, there is an switch, when you take off the cartidge the switch is off, when you put it on the switch is on, this is out = "off" and in= "on", do the same with the other colors.
greetings.
