Disassembling the Brother MFC 240c

I saw that you posted pictures on how to disassemble a Brother MFC 240c. I tried to print labels and some of them came off inside the printer and is now clogging the print head. I can see one of the labels but can't get to it. I can't figure out how to take the machine apart to get to it. Can you send me the disassembly photos since the ones on the site are too small to see.
Thanks! Chris cosmicbrewery@mac.com

This is a common problem with this model. I usually occurs after a jam in which when removing the jam your fingers go too far under the cover towards the front and dislodge the encoder strip. Its the strip that sits just above the carriage and tells its location (ie where to print). 30 is obstruction of the carriage and the 50 is cant find the purge station. It is an easy operation to relocate it after pulling it appart but a very dificult task while it is still together and you will probally put the machine out of alignment. An easy operation for your local service centre and it shouldn't cost too much if out of warranty. One of my favourite faults to fix as its easy as.

SOURCE: red ink nozzle on a brother mfc-240c is clogged

I found an article on how to unclog Brother inkjet nozzles on the InkMagic website. It worked for me.

http://www.inkmagic.com/Articles/Unclog%20nozzles%20on%20your%20Brother%20multifunction%20inkjet%20printer.htm

I'm also using their ink now. I'm a photographer so colour is really important to me. InkMagic ink is as close to the orginal Brother ink as I've found. The MFC-240 cartridges are here:

Hope this helps ... Dale

SOURCE: Brother MFC-620CN print head clogged

Open up amd release blue stay at bottom by pressing edges inward and pulling slightly forward. Remove the 4 screws, 2 small plastic covers and the earth screw. Pull out the ribbon connector near the USB plug. Unplug the 2 white and one red connectors, noting how the cables fit in. Fully open the lid and pop the scanner part off. Remove all the ink cartridges. Now using a flat screwdriver unclip the top of the base all the way round and lift off. The print head is now accessible. Rotate the white paper feed cogs to release the print head. Slide it all the way to the right and remove it by tilting the back edge upwards. You mow have access to the print head!!!!

Yes, you can cut a small piece of electrical tape and place it over the window on the inside edge of the cartridge. it has to wrap around the window tightly.

Disassemble Brother MFC 240C


I know this issue may have been resolved by you already, since I am now looking at this issue for you, however I am setting up the answer to help others that may have a similar problem in the future. You will need to reference a Brother servicing manual as it will show you how to remove the printer assembly and includes part numbers that you may need to replace. Hope this is helpful!

I have a Brother mfc-240c - will not print yellow


The print head is clogged.If not unclogging with cleaning process may you try to clean manualy.You need to dissasembly the hole printer to remove the print head.Put it in hot water.If you don't have a technical skills, don't try anything.
If not help just buy new printer, because the new print head will cost you as much more.

Problem with my printer Brother MFC-240C "Print unable 4F"


Access the internal maintenance mode by pressing the Menu/Set button, then press * 2 8 6 4 within 2 seconds. This should put you in the maintenance mode menu. Enter 80, then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key. You'll find an entry listed as purge count. If number is over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.

This will reset the purge count value. Then the printer will restart,
try this step by step.without missing any thing. thanks

Do the following:

Replacing the cart holder on a Brother MFC 240C


Somethings that have worked for some Brother owners to get cartridges recognised.

1. With your MFC powered up, open it up and remove the cartridge you are having a problem with, then close the MFC, leaving it powered up. It should report that there is no cartridge in the machine.

Still with the MFC powered up, open it up and reinsert the ink cartridge, then close the MFC. It should either ask if you have replaced a cartridge or go into its cleaning mode.

Answer "yes" to "have you replaced cartridge?" and it should either "print" or "clean" and then "print".


2. The cartridge holder in the printer has an "electronic eye" (light sensor) of some type for each cartridge.
Some users have found that putting either permanent marker/sharpie/black PVC tape either on the area of the ink cartridge that goes near the sensor or alternatively putting tape over the sensor itself allows printing to occur.
The problem with this method is that the printer will no longer recognise near-empty cartridges and so will not warn you to replace them and so the print head may be damaged. This is said to work on LC57 icartridges used with the following models: DCP-330C, DCP-350C, DCP-540CN, DCP-560CN, FAX-2480C, MFC-240C, MFC-440CN, MFC-465CN, MFC-665CW, MFC-685CW, MFC-885CW, MFC-3360C, MFC-5460CN, MFC-5860CN.
