SOURCE: Problem with my printer Brother MFC-240C "Print unable 4F"

Access the internal maintenance mode by pressing the Menu/Set button, then press * 2 8 6 4 within 2 seconds. This should put you in the maintenance mode menu. Enter 80, then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key. You'll find an entry listed as purge count. If number is over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.

This will reset the purge count value. Then the printer will restart,
try this step by step.without missing any thing. thanks

SOURCE: Printer says "Unable to print 70"

Usually that error means the encoder strip behind the carriage assembly is out of position or very dirty. Best to remove the top cover to correct, you might also find a scrap of paper either on the extreme right or left stopping the carriage from moving properly.

SOURCE: brother MFC-465CN printer Error code 51 unable to print

Usually this is caused by a foreign object or debris under the printhead path, or under where the printhead "parks."

Unplug the machine. Open the cover. Check the printhead path for little bits of paper, push pins, paperclips, staples etc. Note the location of the printhead.

If the printhead is at the far left, gently slide it towards the center (do not force it). Look carefully under where the printhead was stopped for debris. Use a flashlight if necessary.

Close the cover. Plug in the unit. Try again.

Need software for my printer (model # - MFC-250C and MFC-290C)to install in my computer.

Hi Peniueli!
You can download the MFC-290C software from here -
and the MFC-250C from here -
In both cases you need to select first your operating system (windows 7, vista, xp, etc) and that the language. After that you press on Search and then, in the opened web page, you press on Download and Information.
Hope that helps. Good luck!

I have a year0-old Brother MFC-250C which worked very well -- even after I upgraded to Windows 7. But... when I replace ink cartridges, they don't print. I'm now down to blue and yellow...

yup,,, that is some problem with win.7,,, you try using this printer with win.xp,, it will work fine,,, your printer will miss printing line,, rest will work fine
