Cyan ink worked until needed to replace that empty cartridge. Now, all colors print but Cyan. I have cleaned inks, blocked eye with tape, cleaned where cartridge goes with warm water (in those holes),...

First do not use cartrigde compatible or refill because you clogged the print head,is verry sensitive.If you try to clean the print head and nothing you need to replace the print head is the only solution,after replace the print head you print all the colors.

NOTE!!! After you replace the print head use only original cartridge brother !!!!

What does cyan mean on a brother 240-c all in 1 printer it says replace cyan it wont do nothing

Cyan is the "blue/green" ink cartridge which is required to print in full color. Some printers stop working when one or more ink cartridges is empty. Get a complete set for some savings and for the next cartridge that gets empty. Printers are cheap now, it's the ink that gets costly.

If only one of my ink is finish, why cant the others print, it keeps saying ink emptycyan finish.

The firmware in the orinter blocks the printing to avoid dry firing the cyan color jets That spoils them, often permanently. There isn;t any way to turn off just that color so the firmware blocks any printing.

Get a refill kit and refill the cyan. That color is usually the first to go.

All new toner but prints everything blue

I kinda don't doubt it at all. It could be a bad lot of toner, or another problem with a mechanism within it...regardless, you're cartridge is defective -return it.

Can you force a printer to print in grayscale?

Yes, you can bypass the color printing. The software you are using for printing can help you change from colour to gray scale or adjust it in the printer properties.

Brother 5440 won't print in color..

the ink is dry and you will need to take the cartridge off and clean it (maybe you will need to poke it with a needle to open it) and also you will need to open the nozzles of the printer by doing the same thing.

just be careful when u r doing that.
