Question about Brother MFC 420CN All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer will not print.

1. Printer reads "Black ink empty. Replace cartridge." The cartridge is 3/4 or more full. 2. I took out all cartridges to check ink. All almost full. Now printer reads "no cartridge." 3. Cartriges will not empty, instructed to replace when cartridge is 1/3 or more full. FYI: I will never buy another Brother product.I've had nothing but trouble since the day of purchase. I believe the printer to be defective. Brother should offer a refund. I do not want a replacement.

Can you use black only in hp officejet 6700 rather than all the cartridges

Hello, Lisa -

You can choose to print in black only. However, the black print will use not only the ink from the black ink cartridge but it will also draw from the 3 other color ink cartridges.

Bottom line: You will need sufficient ink in all ink cartridges even to print in black only.

Please read your HP 6700 user's manual, starting on page 74 of the manual.

In case you do not have the user's manual for your printer, this is the link so you can download and save the PDF (Adobe Acrobat Reader software, free) version of the manual:

Best wishes.

I have a brother fax machine model 2480c, just want to know for the ink catridge, do i need full ink in the entire 4 catridge in order for the printer to work OR i can just have say the black colour...

1) The Brother printer is structured in such a way that it will stop all the printing operations if any one of the ink cartridges are empty.

2) If the printer continues printing inspite of having anyone empty cartridge then the cleaning cycles would suck air from the empty cartridge.

3) This would damage the print head.
However, the black and white print mode can operate exceptionally well when the cartridges are empty.

Printer not printing

Unfortunately, like most multi cartridge ink jet printers when one ink is empty the printer will cease printing regardless of whether you just want to print in black and white and you have plenty of black ink left. I have heard of people tricking the printer into believing the cartridge is full by placing coloured tape etc in front of the ink sensing device but I am not sure how the Brother senses the ink levels as i have some aftermarket ink cartridges for mine which seem to be completely non-opaque (unlike the originals). The need to have colour cartridges in even if you only ever print with black ink is good news for Brother as the MFC-210c uses a large amount of ink during it's routine cleaning cycles (that you cant stop) and will empty all 3 cartridges in under 6 months without ever printer a single drop of colour ink. Sorry about all the bad news, at least your not alone......
