Question about Brother MFC255CW All-in-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Is there a way to print black and white (just for text documents) when other colours are low? The printer refuses to print anything except when all colours are full, not just black. I have tried setting it to print greyscale. It will not work.

I have some documents to print for my business, however one of the "colour" cartridges is empty and the printer refuses to print anything. I don't want colour printing, I only require black and...


It probably isn't even empty, it's just that the time is up on the cartridge.
Some of the printer companies are doing that, just to make more money. They sell the printers cheap then force you to buy their cartridges and stop printing long before the cartridge is actually empty.
Unfortunately, no; you can't force it.

Can't print in black because no yellow


Yes replace the Yellow cartridge. This is because the printer will construct the black colour as a mix of all the colour inks installed in the printer.

However, on the printer preferences you can see when you print a document from an application by using the FILE tab and then selecting the PRINT option then go to PRINTER PREFERENCES there is an option to select printing in Greyscale or Black & White only.

Also if you are printing text from an app such as Word make sure that the text is actually 100% black as if it is not then the printer will automatically ignore the black ink cart and try to mix it from the colour ink carts just as it would when printing an image.

Printer is refusing to print colour, with full colour ink tank.


Have you checked the ink levels in your cartridges? Ink can dry due to usage and also due to prolonged non usage.

Why is there 2 black ink cartridges in my Canon MP600 printer


On some printers, probably including yours, the black ink will be taken from the reserves in your colour cartridge unless you specifically tell it to do a black and white print on each document, regardless of whether it's printing black exclusively. I wouldn't worry, the black ink in it's own cartridge can also be used for colour photos etc with no detrimental effects.

Won't print black


I found a solution to the Black printing problem :)
Under Printing Preferences: Set your Media Type to Photo Paper Pro.
We used edible ink cartridges and printed onto icing sugar paper. Same old... Just one day it refused to print black. In order to continue our small business, I degraded the color until I printed gray and not black.

Tonight, I browsed for the problem and came across this :)

Hope it helps you too

Not print and not scann without colour cartridge


most printer require all cartridge to be present and recognised before they will operate- even though you only wish to print -say- text in black. When printing in most machines all colours print even if it is only text you want. Except some machine can have a black only mode This will be found in the properties menu, if your machine has the facility
