First - read the manual as regards printing. I notice that you can print in Black and White but I cannot find anything to say that you only need the Black ink to do this (therefore I think that I am right in saying that you need the colour cartridges).

Question - Has it worked with only the black ink before now?

As a final solution - Contact Brother direct and check out their FAQ's and/or send them an email asking if you can run the printer with Black ink only installed (I suspect the answer will be no).

If the answer to the above questions comes back as "Yes you can use Black only" (they may tell you how to set this up in which case ignore my next comments), then please supply some more information as regards what happened immediately before it stopped printing. This will help to drill down to the problem.

Does printing black text only on a Brother Inkjet All-in-One (MFC-J625DW) use the color cartridges?


Your right. Simple answer. Take the coloured cartraiges out (you may need to set your printer to mono crome though. not sure.? Save a bit more money and recycle your cartrages you get paid for them. then you can buy refill cartrages and save even more. Some say do not use them they cause problems, but i have from day one and still have no problems 29 years later!!! and i am a high user on a A1 PRINTER!!! (draughtsman if your wondering)

My printer will not print black even tried 2 brand new cartrages. i also tried the cleaning process on the printer and it did not help. all other colors print perfect.


the black tube or nozzles are clogged up. The printhead probably needs to be replaced.

possible reasons for this

generic ink
not using the printer for a long time
printing past the warning indicator of low ink and having air get sucked in the tubes.

Probably cheaper to buy a new unit.

Hp laserjet 2600n printer creates 1/2" wide band that you can almost see the print...like it is not getting toner in black color.


This often happens when cartrage has run past changing point. remove cartrages starting at top and CK for ink. Run cleaning page until clear

Empty Ink Cartrage message when cartrage still has a lot of ink.


I'm going to provide you a solution worth many dollars now you can use your left over half filled cartidges and in future also use the cartridges to the extreme.
1. Go to menu and select manual override for toner cartridges and then only replace toner when the print quality starts to suffer. This can save you thousands of dollars over the life of this fine printer.
2. download and read this

Color ink cartridge says empty i just filled it


When you put in a "new" cartrage the printer sens an electrical charge to the cartrage to set it up properly. So I would treat this as a new cartrage, rather than a refilled one. Go to the printer menu and re install the ink cartrage in question, it should recognise it and start the function as a new one, good luck
