I have a brother MFC-490CW and replaced the black ink, and my color ink has run out. It will not let me print as it says ink is low, so it won't even let me use the black? How do I print with only using...


By design, Brother printers stop all printing when one of the cartridges is empty. This is done to avoid cleaning cycles sucking air into the system, which could possibly damage the printhead.

Even if you print in black only by changing the print settings to "Mono" or "Grayscale" to avoid printing in color, cleaning cycles would still **** air from the empty color cartridge because they are programmed to clean ALL the ink nozzles. The only way to continue printing is to replace the empty ink cartridge(s).

After replacing the empty color cartridge, you could print in "Mono" or "Grayscale" to make better use of just the black ink.

The printer will print ok in color, but will not print black ink. No copy or printing.


My best guess without knowing more is that your printer has both a color print cartridge and a black ink print cartirdge. Replace the black ink cartridge and you should be fine. You might also find that replacing the entire printer is less expensive....All the best!

Using refilled printer cartridges in Canon MP500, how to reset


There is no way to reset it, you just have to watch your ink by the printing you do, Normally, black ink will last up to 500 copies or more if you put your printer properties on fast print (this is to save ink when printing from the Standard version). In Color, it may vary with the projects that you do. The way I check, when my cartridges to see if they are almost out, is to run the clean cycle under the printer utilities menu, then the printer test page. This should show you what colors, and black ink you have or dont have. When you recycle or reuse your cartridges, the metal component that is on a new cartridge for the printer to recongize the it, is removed during refill process. I dont why the companies that fill the cartridges do put it back. I wish they would it would may things alot easier. I hope this helps.

Printing Problem


Look for ink clogged on the printer head. Run cleaning or deep cleaning after installing the new cartridge before printing. Take nozzle check print.
