Question about Brother MFC-465CN InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Use MFC-465CN withou cartridges

I'd like to use only the Scan and Fax (out) functions of the machine, but can't get it running without inserting the cartridges first. As I'm far from the machine 90% of the year, I'm afraid it will just get the ink dried out, and I will have to put new cartridges. I don't need to print in colour.

Any suggestions how to achieve this?

In order to scan you need to have ink in cartridges?... great design!!! cheat the printer - use black electric tape to cover transparent slots at the back of your cartridges (printer will think that it has ink and it should stop that annoying beeping)

Can i send a fax without ink?


my fax machine is a Canon mx860. it would not let me do ANYTHING without a black ink cartridge, even tho all the color cartridges were full (black can be made without a black ink cartridge, it just waste your color ink a lot.)

Since it was an emergency i scanned the document to fax from my desktop as a .jpg file, sent it to my laptop containing a modem, and faxed it from my laptop with windows 7's "fax and scan wizard". I know its not a fix, but its an emergency work around.

Do i need an ink cartridge for the fax machine to work and setup


Some brands of fax machines and all-in-one printer/scanner/fax/copiers need the ink cartridge to be present and have some ink in it to perform functions which don't actually require ink.

My dad bought a Brother all-in-one, and he is unable to scan or send faxes unless he replaces an empty ink cartridge first. If you have a Brother fax machine, I'd suggest returning it and buying a different brand. They waste ink on unnecessary cleaning procedures and force you to buy more for stuff that doesn't need ink.

Cannot send and receive fax after refilling PG-40


I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I think that the fax not printing is Canon's new approach to kick out refills from their all in one machines. We cannot reset the ink level indicators on these cartridges and if people can no longer print faxes if their ink says it's low, then they can never use refills if they want to use their fax machine. I think it is also a way for Canon to make more money on their ink sales by making consumers buy new ink before theirs runs out. As far as I know there is no way to fix this problem.

HP Officejet 6310-all-in-one won't fax or scan


Go into your HP settings in your applications and use the HP Scan Pro. You can tell your printer/scanner to scan that way and it works. My scan button still doesn't work but if I access HP Scan Pro module from my computer I can scan.
