Dirt or dried ink
Sometimes, the incapability of printing in black is due to the presence of dirt or dried ink in the MFC printer. If you find such things, remove the black cartridge immediately. Then clean the scanner and laser without touching the ink surface. Always use a cotton cloth for this purpose. Make sure that the ink is not overflowing. Remove the dust or dried ink because it may cause overflowing the ink. Also clean the printer head regularly.
Toner or fuser complaint

As a result, the roller may get damaged and you get only black pages as output. Brother printer 1260 and 960 models often show this error. To rectify this complaint, you have to replace diodes with new ones. Also check whether this fuser damage is due to the improper working of your transistors.
