Question about Brother Multi-Function Center MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer
All of a sudden I stopped getting any "red" coloring on my printouts. I have put in 2 new cartridges --still will print only black, yellow, and blue. I get two rows of yellow --no magenta hues.
If you have tried 2 seperate Carts, and neither have worked, I would say that the problem lies in the printer. You can try cleaning the contacts where the cartridge makes it's connection. The easiest way to do this, is with a pencil eraser, simply rub the eraser on the metal pins that connect the cartridge. Depending on the orientation of these pins, you probably want to use an up and down motion, as side to side may fold some of the pins over. If this does not correct the problem, then you have the option of getting the printer serviced, or looking at purchasing a new printer. It has been my experience, that any money put towards repairing a printer is actually better spent towards a replacement, as printers often cost almost as much to repair as they do to replace.

Its quite possible that the cable supporting the carriasge of magenta has got slightly cut in between so the cartrige not printing as the connection not getting completed so its still not printing with new cartridge also.its white colour cable which moves with cartridge carriage.will cost you new at $2 dollars to replace.
