Re: Not printing in black
Turn off the Stylus CX. Load letter-size paper in the sheet feeder. Press the ink and ON buttons together and hold them down for about 3 seconds. The Stylus CX turns on and prints a test pattern, which includes a nozzle check. If the print comes as = > Nozzle check pattern with no gaps, and if its print in black then reinstall the printer driver or => Nozzle check pattern with gaps and black doesn't print please send the printer for repair

1. try to cleaning head 2. remove the black cartridge only, (if it doesn,t changed after you cleaned head) 3. provide some warm/hot water on a bowl or plate. 4. enter the HEAD of black cartridge in to hot water. soak with depth about 2mm up to 5mm. while you see the ink is come out.... 5. after the black ink has come out. pat dry with a paper towels/tissue. 6. replace the cartridge in to printer. 7. cleaning head again and print test page good luck....
When you go to print on your settings select print in black only. Did you buy Brother ink? Having old cartridges refilled or buying generic can pose a problem. I remember correctly brothers have a chip on the ink cartridge? I have gone through so many printers and its really not worth going any further, seems as though you have put sometime and effort in to this 100$ printer. Take 100$ & buy a kodak easy share all in one the ink is 15$ brand new.
microsoft logo is in colour and so its printing while everything else on test page is black so its not printing.
the problem is common.you need to do automatic deep cleaning for the ink flow to start once you install new cartridges.go to printer maintanance option and click the option deep cleaning .it will pull out the ink in printer head and it will start working.sometimes also requires cleaning twice.
thanks and do not forget to accept the solution.
