    It disables when the ink cartridge , and ink , goes dry. we have all but magenta , so none will work. We will just buy a different printer !

Read the manual.. IT tells you what the sotry is on printing and what carts are rewuired. you may find that All carts in a brother printer need to be present and full of ink, even if you want to print in black only.

Yep Brother sucks

If you look at your printers software, there may be an option to "Print greyscale" or Print B & W Only.

My MFC465CN Wont print, I am missing Magenta will that affect it?


Yes missing the magenta ink will cause it not to print. This is because its a color inkjet machine that uses one printer head for all four inks, so when one of them go empty you will need to replace that one for it to work.

I have a brother MFC-490CW and replaced the black ink, and my color ink has run out. It will not let me print as it says ink is low, so it won't even let me use the black? How do I print with only using...


By design, Brother printers stop all printing when one of the cartridges is empty. This is done to avoid cleaning cycles sucking air into the system, which could possibly damage the printhead.

Even if you print in black only by changing the print settings to "Mono" or "Grayscale" to avoid printing in color, cleaning cycles would still **** air from the empty color cartridge because they are programmed to clean ALL the ink nozzles. The only way to continue printing is to replace the empty ink cartridge(s).

After replacing the empty color cartridge, you could print in "Mono" or "Grayscale" to make better use of just the black ink.

Wont print


what are you trying to print in black? the best way to test out a black ink is to open word pad and type some thing random and print it and see if that works. if you have a all in one printer u might have 2 inks one color and one black in the printer

Cartridge? problem


If you are using or have used third party generic ink cartridges or refilled ink cartridges, the Cartridge Sensor printed circuit board may have been damaged. We have found that some third party generic ink cartridges leak onto the ink cartridge sensor circuit board causing an electrical short of the ink cartridge sensors. The damage from the leaked ink results in the machine displaying NO CARTRIDGE because the machine will no longer recognize the installed ink cartridge(s). Genuine Brother ink cartridges do not cause this issue because of the unique design developed to fit specifically in the Brother products. As long as a Brother cartridge has not been refilled, the Brother cartridge will not leak.

My MFC-440CN


Yes, an empty ink cartridge will prevent the printer from functioning.
Not all printers will do this, but the Brother MFC series will not print if any one of the cartridges are empty. Replace the cartridge and all should be fine.
