If one of the colours are low, it will try mixing the remaining colours as best it can (the exception to this is the black ink). However, this is only a bandaid as far as the printer is concerned.

Black and white prints are not black


Sorry, steve, that you are experiencing this problem.

According to canon.com's website regarding the i9900 InkJet Photo Printer:

Why color ink may be used when printing in black and white Even when printing in black and white, color ink is used for the following reasons:
  1. Automatic cleaning of the print head.

    To prevent the print head nozzles from clogging, the print head is automatically cleaned periodically. At that time, a small amount of each color ink is consumed.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink is also consumed.

  2. Color inks may be used to create black.

    When printing in grayscale or on photo paper or when duplex printing, although printing appears in black and white, the color black may be created using the three (cyan, magenta, and yellow) color inks. Printers without a pigment black tank / cartridge will print black / grayscale will create a composite black using color ink even on plain paper.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink may be consumed.
  3. In order to keep the heavy black ink from smearing on the page or in the printer, color ink is used when duplex printing to help create black text.

    ---
I might suggest taking out the color ink cartridges leaving only black there, but some printers don't take kindly to this. So, you may have to further experiment with magenta, cyan, and yellow to make it at least seem b&w to your best eye's judgment.

Good luck on this.

Cant print in black and white when out of a color.


disregaurd any prior solutions in cleaning any contacts. that model doesnt have an electrical contact to clean. there are little magnets inside each color and black cartrige that work off a float mechanisim inside each one. when the levels get low the magnet indicates to the printer it is empty. unfortunately for you this stylis model as with all brother model printers wont work even if the color your setting up in the properties or settings feature are set to black and the black is full. its the companies way of forcing you into buying new ink. be aware though that my brother catriges cost 78.00 for the 3 color and one black set. i found these cartriges online through ebay but with one more additional black cartrige for a total of 5 not for ,for a total cost of 13.11 with free shipping. sounds too good to be true but for 13.00 it was worth a try. i have now purchased several 5 packs from them and couldnt be happiere.

My hp deskjet 1280 will not print yellow


Hello, this is Harry from www.BusinessSpread.co.uk.
We had the exact same problem when printing, we used 3 different 78 colour ink cartages and they all said 100% full but did not work. We then had a look at the dates on the box and they were all expired so when buying ink from anywhere even PC world or Curry’s always look at the expiry date.
Today I went to PC world and purchased a new 78 ink which said expires July 2011 and it works perfectly fine.

Bought wrong ink


Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but no...

The DX4200 uses:
Black T0611
Cyan T0612
Magenta T0613
Yellow T0614

... while the DX4400 uses:
Black T0711
Yellow T0714
Magenta T0713
Cyan T0712


Best bet is to eBay them or find someone who wants to trade.

Hope that helps.

Printing when ink is low


The machine requires all color in order to print anything, even just black and white copies. You need to install a new cyan ink before it will print.

Can't print


Ok, if your brother has four cartridges then I'll assume you have black ink available. There should be a printer setting to print in black only, especially if your trying to print a colored document. If your brother only has three cartridges then cyan is necessary to form black; you will have to buy a replacement cartridge.

Ink empty cyan


Have you replaced the cartridge containing the cyan color in your printer?

You can deplete a single color. But if you think it is a false error message, I would try cleaning loose ink from the tray and cartridge itself. Especially on the contact areas. Brother printers are inexpensive and work well for small jobs, but ultimately jam, clog, and sometimes even break when run hard or doing large volumes.

Low ink levels


if they are not original Epson cartridges, the printer will keep reading them low.
If they are try taking them out and put them in again.
