In principle, Brother equipment is designed to stop ALL printing operations when any of the ink tanks are empty. This happens to protect the print head and maintain good print quality. If the machine continues to print, print jobs and cleaning cycles will damage the print head.
However, Brother equipment can work exceptionally in B&W (monochrome) print-only mode when one or more ink tanks are used up. When a tank runs out of ink, the following B&W Print Only Refill Ink error message will appear on the equipment display (LCD).
