Question about Brother MFC 240C All-In-One InkJet Printer
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
I also had this problem, your solution was spot-on, remove the top cover and control panel and re-seat the encoded strip. simple.
boy, are you guys good.

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.

there are no instructions that you would understand and once the print head is clogged up, you can noy mannually clean it , it has to be replaced! sounds like you are using generic ink!

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

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!!!!
