SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: IS THERE RESET OR CIRCUT

Yes, there is a RESTORE DEFAULT SETTING into the printing. But no circiut breaker for the bother. Go navigate to the LCD screen and it should be there in the GENERAL SETTING and choose LAN SETTING. From there choose RESTORE DEFAULT.

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

Regards and thank you for using Fixya !

Well, this is a common problem with people who purchase Brother printers, but do not always use Brother Ink Cartridges. Brother has a cleaning agent in the print cartridge and the compatibles do not.

"If you have a lack of one (or more) color do the following:

Make sure all carts are full, placed well and are secured. Insert a new ORIGINAL BROTHER CART for the one that shows no color.

Press menu then start bk-copy then four times arrow up quick after another. machine will switch into maintenance mode and all lights will flash. Press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk-copy. machine will initialize the carts and refresh ink within tubes and print head. After that it does some power cleaning. When finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk-copy. machine will run a power purge. when finished press 9 then 9 to leave the maintenance mode. do run a quality test print.

This should clean the lines out and clear up your issue.

Try powerful cleaning:
Press menu, then start black copy, then four times arrow-up quickly after another.Machine will be in maintenance mode
(all lights will flash).
Press 7-6-4 and OK (or start-black-copy).
When finished press 7-6-3 then start black copy,
printer will do a power purge.
Leave maintenance mode by pressing 9-9.
If this not help better think about new printer, because cost of repairing this one is profitable.

press menu then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow-up quickly after another. machine will be in maintenance mode (all lights will flash).

Machine will do some refreshing of ink and some special cleaning.

When finished press 7-6-3 start-bk copy
machine will do a power purge.

leave maintenance mode by pressing 9-9.

DO USE ORIGINAL BROTHER INK or skyhorse generic ink only due to the fact that other generic ink will defenetly do damage to the printer!

Colors not print well


This could be because of a defective valve.

DO NOT CLEAN THE PIEZO PH WITH ANY SOLUTION EXCEPT ORINIGNAL BROTHER INK!!!! OTHERWISE YOU WILL DEFENETLY DESTROY THE PH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Try this:

Place new carts into machine and make sure thy are secured.

Press menu then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow up. machine will be in maintenance mode and lights will flash. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh ink within tubes and ph and do some cleaning. when done press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy. machine will do a power purge.
Leave maintenance afterwards by pressing 9 then 9. Do run a test print by pressing ink etc.
If you still cant see any yellow and/or magenta the ph is defective and needs replacement.
