All HP printers that have both black and color cartridges, must have both cartridges replaced when they run out or the printer will not work.

How to replace a brother catridge.


The Brother MFC-240C uses an individual cartridge for each color (black, yellow, cyan, and magenta). When one of the cartridges is empty or near empty, the printer will tell you to replace that ink cartridge.

You can buy the cartridges individually, or you can buy a pack of all three color cartridges or a pack of two black cartridges. To replace one of the ink cartridges, follow the steps below.
All four of the cartridges are located on the right front side of the printer, behind a gray plastic cover. Pull the cover forward from the side, where there is a slight cutout for your finger to grab. When the cover falls forward, you'll see the four ink cartridge holders, coded by color.

For the ink cartridge that you need to replace, push down on the purple handle for that color. The ink cartridge holder will open and fall forward, revealing the ink cartridge itself. Push down on the cartridge holder and the cartridge should pop out toward you a little bit. Grasp the cartridge and remove it.
Open the new cartridge and remove it from its wrapper. Discard the yellow cover, unless you plan to use it for the old cartridge.

Insert the new cartridge into the correct slot (from left to right, they go black, yellow, cyan, magenta) so that the word "brother" is right-side up and located toward the top of the cartridge. Once the cartridge is most of the way in, push the ink cartridge holder up by the purple handle until it snaps into place.

If you are replacing more than one color, repeat this procedure for each cartridge. Then, when you are finished, close the ink cartridge cover.

If you were out of ink or low on ink, the machine should recognize the new cartridge and perform the calibration process. If it doesn't automatically recognize the new cartridge, it will ask if you have changed one or more of the cartridges. Press "1" for Yes when it asks about a color that you replaced, or "2" for No if it asks about a color you didn't replace.

Once the printer comes back up to the ready state, print a color test page to verify that everything is working. If the test page comes out okay, the new cartridge is fine and you can either discard the old cartridge in the trash or save it to recycle. (But don't get rid of it before you are sure that the new cartridge is recognized and working correctly.)

Problem with replacing color ink cart. #5

Only black cartridge empty, but 3 full color crtrige say empty


Remove the color cartridges. On one end you can see the opaque
ink tank inside the main cart. housing. Cut a piece of black electrical
tape to fit around the three sides visible of the ink tank. Make sure the tape fits inside the housing and adheres to the tank itself. This makes the printer think your ink is always full but you can always tell when you need to refill/replace the ink(right?). Good Luck!

1. Make sure the printer is turned on.
2. Make sure the document cover is closed, then closed, then open the scanner.
(Do not open the scanner when the document cover is open).
3. Press and release the ink button. The 'On' and 'Ink' lights flash.
If one of the cartridges is low or empty the printer moves that cartridge to the 'ink out' mark. Go to step 4.
If no cartridges are low or empty the ink cartridge holder moves to the ink replacement position. Go to step 5.
4. Pree the 'ink' button again.
If more than one cartridge is empty or low the next cartridge moves to the 'ink out' mark.
Once the printer identifies all the empty or low ink cartridges the print head moves to the ink cartridge replacement position.
5. Open the cartridge cover, squeeze the tab at the back of the empty cartridge and lift it out.
6. Before you open the new cartridge package shake it four or five times and remove it from the package .
(Don't remove or tear the label on the cartridge otherwise ink will leak out) .
(Don't touch the green chip on the front of the ink cartridge - you could damage the cartridge).
7. Place the new ink cartridge into the cartridge holder and push it down till it clicks into place.
8. Replace any other cartridges that need replacing.
9. Close the ink cartridge cover and press it until it clicks into place.
10. Close the scanner.
11. Press the 'ink' button. The printer starts charging ink and the 'on' light starts flashing . This takes about a minute . When it's finished the 'on' light stops flashing and remains on and the 'ink' light goes out.

No print capacity


do you have an error code on the display. plz give us some more details.

Some quick hints:
-Is the cart secured by help of the colored latches (you should hear a clicking sound).
- Do you use generic carts? might be a prob of air ventilation = drill a hole on top of the missing one.
-did you tell the printer that you have changed the cart by pressing 1 for yes?
-is another cart empty?

New ink cartridge istallation: Brother MFC-240


I guess you d used generic ink carts?!
If yes, the cart holder needs replacement due to ink that has stained the led control. The ink has made a short circuit. The error can only be deleted by replacing the whole cart holder!

Ink problems....


Take all carts out of the machine. Have a look into the cart holder. Is there ink swapping beneath the white plastic? (You might shake the machine ;-)

If yes, the cart holder leaks and needs replacement.

If not (your lucky!) it could be that the automatic cleaning procedure which starts when a cart is changed has soaked the carts empty.

Do set machine with date and time and NEVER unplug NOR use a power switch which breaks the power supply.

Do use constant power and switch off machine by pressing stand-by-fax-button!

Everytime when machine comes to (new) power contact it runs an extensive ink cleaning procedure. thats why your carts are always near empty....
The stand-by will prevent this and machine does some cleaning procedures which consumes only a few drops(!) of ink!


The display asks you if you have changed the carts. Do answer this question by pressing 1 for YES or 2 for NO.
This will reset the built-in inkcountermanagement to the correct settings

Cartridge not recognized


Yes. Unplug machine from power. Wait 5 minutes. open scanner and take all the carts out. close scanner. plug machine to power again. machine will do the start up cleaning. Machine demands carts. insert NEW carts and give the answer in case you are asked by machine.

Do only change the carts when machine stopps for EMPTY cart. As long as it shows Nearly Empty everything is alright.

The machine has a drop counter and counts the ink drops down to zero when the flag is raised within the (nearly) empty carts. In case you take them out at that moment and reinsert again the ink inside will splash and raise the flag again. Control logic will be in trouble....

Inputting new ink cartridges


Error 1102 means cart error. Try cleaning the copper contacts on the cart and the contacts in the printer also. If still fails, then put old carts and check if u still get same error. If u dont get the error then there is a problem with the cart itself. But if you have bought a refilled cart then the print heads on the carts are bad. Needs replacement.
