Most printers require the tiniest bit of color to print in black to keep the color jets from drying out.

If your color cartridges are fine, and you're only asking about settings, then, when you have a document positioned to print, left click one in the window you want to print, hold down the CTRL key and press P

You'enter the printer window

Select "Preferences"
Then "Black and White"
then "Print only from black cartridge"

Ciao,

Why won't my Brother LC61 printer pring the color on test pages?


You may find more success with water than alcohol - most inks are water based these days. However, you may find that ink has dried in the head, which you won't resolve. I can't remember if these have changeable heads or not.
Final option is to try printing a whole full page of cyan colour. It might eventually get through the dried ink and soften and start printing.

I have a all in one color LC61 printer, do all colors have to be filled to print blk only?


Greyscale is color not black only.
You can print in black and it will look grayscale only darker, printers are a pain to work with after a year has gone by, I can expect almost a half hour to print something with my $400 epson because one of the colors is out even though I never printed in the last year a colored page. I take the color cartirges out and they are empty, but I only print a page 2-3 times a year. I use the scanner all the time. Brother and epson have their print heads in the printer not the cartridge so make sure your inks are always have something in it or it will be miricle for the printer to last more than a year. Check colors every other week. One Epson printer only lasted 3 months because I never used it(print head dried up). Never use the set up with tubes running outside printer to small tanks of ink if you only use it occationally.

Black ink 0n LC61 PRINTER HEAD


most likely the printhead needs replacing, it is possible that it might be covered under warranty, call brother and check.

also make sure you have black ink in the cartridge and if you did only 1 cleaning, you may need to do 3 or 4 to see if its better, ink has to flow through the tubes.

Color ink is out can I still Print with Brother LC61


Hello. Yes, if your color ink is out and your black ink is still working, you can still print but in black only. I recommend changing your color cartridge sometime in the near future, but it will not affect your ability to print.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Brother lc61 printer will not print in black even wit a new cartridge installed


Hi innercepter,

1) Open the printer
(2) Remove the ink cartridges from the print head.
(3) Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water to thoroughly clean the print head and each ink cartridge.
(4) Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab.
(5) Once finished, allow to dry and replace the cartridges
(6) Try to print something now

If that does not work then you have one of two possibilities:
(1) One of the ink cartridges is defective and causing the error
(2) If it's definitely not that, then the print head will need to be replaced.

Refill instruction


Trust me, this is the BEST way and the EASIEST way to refill black and color LC61 or LC65 inkjet cartridge from Brother. See the pictures

1. cut the plastic part (see picture). You can use a utility knife or a steak knife (very easy to do)

2. make a hole on the left side (NOT in the midle) and do it straight and don't go deep (see picture)

3. poor the ink with your refill kit and do it straight and don't go deep because the inner side of the cartrigde is made of cheap plastic (like a plastic bag) and you don't want to perforate it

4. put your plug, tape, hot glue or what ever you have to seal the hole.

5. put the cartrigde back in your printer, do a print test and this is it.fa55e1c.jpga111867.jpg
