Try a hard restart, which simply means unplugging the power cord of the printer, and replugging it after one minute has passed. If that does not work, then rerun the CD used to install the printer. Both techniques reprogram the electronics, to a certain extent.
You might also visit the HP website, to see what solutions are being offered for printer problems. They also have a tollfree number to call, in case you need to talk to a technician.
Hope these suggestions help you out.

I cant print in color


For reasons known only to Brother you are unable to print ANYTHING if you are out of any color of ink. If you are out of black and need to only print in color it WILL NOT work

MFC 790cw will not print in black.


garetg,

Your issue with the black ink only is because the print head my be dried up. Witch me that the ink cant flow to the "paper" fast enough. So by time to rollers eject the paper, the ink cant print on the paper. I had the same problem with my Kodak EasyShare 5300 All-In-One. So I contacted Kodak and they are sending me a new one. Try doing the same. Contact your manufacture and ask them..... :)

Much Regards,

Kyle

My printer says E 5


Try reseating the ink cartridges. The error references to either reseating or refilling the ink cartridges.
Since you have mentioned that it worked before with only black cartridge, try reseating both and check.

epson.com, actually you can print using black ink only, but you have to reset the color ink for it to register as full. :) or you can freeze the ink counter using the ssc service utility before the other ink rans out. :)

Black ink not working; but colors are


press menu then start mono (blue copy button) then fourtimes arrow up (tel index). machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start mono. machine will initialize the carts and do some cleaning cycles.
If you're outside can/us: after that press zero then nine. machine prints test print. If youre inside leave maintenance mode and run a test print manually.

if you cant see any bk the ph is clogged and cant be fixed anymore (because of wrong ink: pigmented ink will clogg the filter infront of the nozzels; use ONLY dye-ink for all colors!)

leaving the maintenance mode by pressing 9 then 9.

Brother problem


Did you use third party ink? If the ink is pigmented the filter in front of the printnozzels is clogged and cant be cleaned any more. What you can try is to buy a brand new original brother ink cart and do the cleaning 3 times. After that do a testsheet printing. In case its OK, your lucky and it was a problem of the cart. If you cant see any blocks (with the original ink used!!!) the printhead is crashed and has to be replaced (BTW: Its cheaper to buy a new mfc)! Do use only dye ink for brother printers!!!
