    Thanks again.

    I tried automatically cleaning the head under the ink management option, but perhsaps it's time to attack the contacts with white spirit and a rag.

Hi
try printing a "Nozzle check" to confirm that both your black cartridges are working ok. One cartridge - the smaller (photo) one is used for printing photos on glossy paper. The second - bigger cartridge is used on plain (copy) paper. Sounds to me like your smaller (photo) black cartridge is not working. It's either empty or may need "Cleaning" or "Deep cleaning". In case you don't know...Nozzle check, Cleaning etc utilities can be found on "Maintenance" page in "Printer properties".
good luck

Brother hl3040cn. I have replaced black cartridge it now says other 3 need replacing. Was printing ok before black ran out; not printed colour for long time. thanks


This printer tells you to replace the toner when there is still plenty left. You can override this as follows:-
1. Open the top cover
2. Press "Secure print" and "Cancel" together
3. This brings up the cartridge menu. Press "OK" twice for each entry, then scroll down to the next one. There are two entries for each colour, dunno why.
4. When you've done all 8 entries shut the lid and print.
This may need to be redone every few months.

Brother MFC-290C not printing black


Hi,


The nozzle may be blocked. So take out the colour cartridge and place its nozzle in a bit of water for about 10 mins. Bring it out and dab the nozzle with folded paper. If the tissue is blotted with the three colour it means you have unblocked the nozzle. Try now to print after returning the colour cartridge. You may need to repeat to get good results.


Thank you!!

I cannot print but i have only the black cartridge but i dont have the yellow cyan ang midget


Most modern printers use some colour when printing Black and therefore will not print if ANY ink cartridge is showing as empty.

Unless your printer has a setting for using Black ink only (this is not the same as printing a black and white document), then you will need to purchase and install the colour cartridges before printing can take place. The good thing about this is that very little colour ink is used when printing black and white documents - so they should last a long time.

Good luck.
