Although you may not use the other colours the cleaning assembly cleans all the cartridges hence the other ink gets used. To trick the machine into thinking there is ink in the cartridge, place some black tape over the top of each cartridge facing front of the machine. This fools the sensor into seeing no reflected light and reads that there is ink in the cartridges you do not use. Pleas enote that if you do this on a long term basis it is liley the head will dry out and may damage the head - use this advise to get urgent prints out.

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.

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 don't use the color printing yet the color cartridges are empty


It's all a scam. I have the same problem and I called Brother and they told me that the machine uses color ink to clean itself. It costs more to replace these color cartridges then to buy a new one, which is what I'm going to do. Buy a black and white from a different company. It's all a scam to get you to spend money on their color ink that you don't use.

I Need to Print


Sadly in a word, 'No'.

Here is the exact answer from Brother:

Your Brother machine is designed to stop ALL printing operations
(printing from the pc, printing received faxes and printing copies or reports) when any of the ink cartridges are empty. This is to ensure the life of the print head and maintain premium print quality. If the unit were to continue printing, print jobs and cleaning cycles would suction air from the dry cartridge and damage the printhead. Even if you print in black only or change the print settings to MONO or GRAYSCALE to avoid printing in color, the programmed cleaning cycles would still suction the dry cartridge, because they are programmed to clean ALL the ink nozzles.

The only way to continue printing is to replace the empty ink cartridge or cartridges.

While memory is available, black and white faxes will continue to be received into memory. If a color fax is being received, the Brother machines HANDSHAKE will request the fax be sent as black and white fax.

All faxes received into memory will automatically print once the ink cartridge is replaced.

NOTE: Brother strongly recommends that customers do not use generic ink or refill their Brother ink cartridges. Using non-Brother supplies may affect the hardware performance, print quality and machine reliability since the ink formulation in genuine Brother ink cartridges prevent smearing and clogging of the print head. The Brother limited warranty does not apply to any problem that was caused by the use of unauthorized third party ink and/or cartridges.

My brother fax machine is indicating that two color cartridges are almost empty, however i never print anything and color, and basically everything is black. so how can they be almost empty?


Three reasons -

If your print driver is set to color. It will use all the colors to make black.

Because the machine is ink jet it needs to clean the print head to stop it from drying out. It will use color ink to flush the print head every two days.

When ever in receives a fax it will use some color when printing a fax, particularly Cyan.

If you only wish to print or receive faxes in black there is now a version of Brother fax that only uses black ink and has no color inks. However it may not be available in your region. If you try and cheat the system you will only kill your print head.

print head defective. cant be fixed anymore.
You need a new fax machine due to the fact that the spare part is more costly than  a new one!

Brother Intellifax 1840C the only one thing you can to do is stick masking tape around the cartridge, there is an switch, when you take off the cartidge the switch is off, when you put it on the switch is on, this is out = "off" and in= "on", do the same with the other colors.
greetings.

Color doesn't print before and after printhead replacment.


No, its not possible. The problem is likely the ink has dried in the purge unit or one of the small tubes going to the waste pad. The new printhead is the fix for the ERROR 41. The problem is there is sometimes other things that go bad, purge unit being just one example. One of the biggest problems with inkjets is that consumers leave their printers alone for long periods of time and the ink dries and clogs the tiny hoses inside. Even the ink cartdriges are just ink tanks, I have replaced those many times and have seen bad ones that just won't flow, replaced the inks and it works fine. You also have to put in the id# for the printhead after you replace it. Did you do that or get the instructions?
