Hacking a Brother printer - Response

We have Tommy over here forcing a Brother printer with only black ink to print in greyscale. He puts electric tape on the cartridge "window", but I didn't even have the empty colour cartridges any more, so I put duct tape directly onto the light sensor. 
DCP-130C

Just one cartridge needs to work
1 - Full Black Cartridge
2 - Yellow Cartridge
3 - Cyan
4 - Magenta
5 - you can see the right side of the light sensor. It appears only one side needs to blocked out, the tape underside works fine
SUCCESS!



This is what I call a $41 fix.

I should've done this instead of buying ink cartridges that weren't needed. I feel scammed. I feel I should sue.
