20 Most Recent Brother MFC-3240C All-In-One InkJet Printer Questions & Answers


It seems simple enough, but this is one of the most effective ways of fixing printer cartridge error. Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached.

To reattach the cartridge check the following steps :

turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head.

Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report.

Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

There could be a posibility that you may be low on ink. The reason i say this is that you say it prints green. Green is blue and yellow. That means that your red is empty or dried out. If you are low on ink you will have a low or no ink indication and sometimes the software for the printer only has 3-5 diffrent indications.What i mean is when you see the data for your ink there are diffrent levels that it shows. Your software may not be able to diffrenciate between the colors just the status of say one color in your case it could be red.Therefore it would read 0% of ink avaliable but still be able print green. If i were you I would buy a new ink cartridge and see if you get the same results.

Hi Jason, 5A is usually caused by a bad maintenance unit. The purge cam gear may be broken or too much load on the maintenance unit. Either way replacing maintenance unit should solve the problem.

I do not know if Windows Vista driver software for the MFC-3240C is available on CD/DVD.

You can download either the Full Driver & Software Package or the Add Printer Driver Wizard for Windows Vista ("regular" edition) from this page.
