Question about Brother Multi-Function Center MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer
Our machine has from the beginning, stopped printing anything when it thinks it is out of ink. I check the cartridge and it is low, but there is a lot of ink still in cartridge? When I shut the lid, it then asks if I have replaced the ink cartridge. I say no and it cleans the ink cartridge, and then reverts back to the whole sequence again. The only thing seems I can do is, always replace?? This is costley because I have 4/5 cartridges with ink in them. HELP
You can use ducttape to stick around the black flag which can be seen from outside. This signals the printer that the cartridge is full. But you should not print until the cart is absolutley empty! This will seriously damage the printhead! (search internet >>

Tips for a great answer:
You can check the status of each ink tank according to the way its lamp flashes.
- On: The printer is ready to print.
- Slow flashing (at about three second interval): Ink is low. Prepare a new ink tank.
- Fast flashing (at about one second interval): Ink tank is empty, or the printer is not ready due to an error.
- Off: An error has occurred and the printer is not ready to print.
