Pro905 is out of color ink. can i print in black and white text only


The Lexmark Platinum Pro905 needs all four inks to have substantial ink for printing at all times in order to prevent damage to the printhead. This is why a user has to replace empty ink cartridges to continue printing. This includes color cartridges for black only jobs.

Brother MFC-290c printer does not print black anymore. Test print page color ok but not black printing. What is the problem?


The problem is either:

* out of BLACK ink -- replace the ink-cartridge

* clogged ink-jets -- the ink is not spraying onto the paper, so run a few print-head-cleaning cycles

* dead electronics -- not triggering the jets to spray ink, so replace the printer

Mfc 290, replaced ink cartridges and the black will not print only the colors. printer cleaned and no progress. any help?


You could clean the black ink cartridge. For this you need to remove the black ink cartridge which is present in the printer. In order to clean the laser or scanner block you could use a cotton swab as it would fully clean the dirt. You need to clean the grime and the dried ink present in the printer. This would remove all the hindrances which prevent the ink from flowing. Cleaning the printer heads would also help to solve the problem.

New brother laser printer hl-2140 with new ink cartridge . All printed pages are covered with black ink. Slide the cleaner and even change cartidge, but same problem.


Please try to re align the print heads and service the carraige assembly of the printer ( Place where you slot in your cartridge). if it doesnt work then there is a leakage on the ink piping system.

Replace the Ink service station.

Can i print black prints without refilling the color ink cartridges? my color cartridges are empty but the black is full. The printer wont let me print black and white files.


Not certain on that model of Brother but on mine I was able to get it to print by changing the settings in "Print Setup" If you change these so that it can only print in black and whiye, it won't look for the colour cartridge, like mine didn't

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.

I cannot print black when the color cartridges are empty. MOdel mfc665cw


Don't you see the logic? Brother wants you to spend money by buying color cartridges. And also, most printers are also using colors to make the prints darker.

I need to know if this printer, MFC-8660DN is a color printer. If so what cartridge do I buy. I can find nothing stating it is color.


This printer is a multifunction black and white laser printer. It takes the Brother TN580 cartridge. There are many sources for this cartridge, just google it.
