Question about Brother MFC 240C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

We recently bought new ink cartridges for our brother mfc-240 printer. It keeps saying no cartridge wether we put the new or old black one in. Is this fixable? -Rebecca

    We replaced all of the ink cartridges. Even though they are all full, it says low on magenta, cyan, and yellow, but empty on black.

The machine most likely want you to change one (or more) of the other cartridges too. By opening the top cover and reading the display when it is opened, you should get an error indicating which cartridge to change, it most likely isn't the black one it is alarming about, but rather one of the not-changed ones.

Printer keeps telling me that the yellow cart is empty and I have put a new one in


Are you positive it says the yellow cart is empty? Because that brother printer is designed to say that a cartridge is empty whenever ANY of the color cartridges are empty. Usually it doesn't tell you which one is really empty either. So even if you replaced the yellow cartridge and say, the black cartridge is empty, it still won't let you print until you replace that empty black cartridge, nor will you know which of the cartridges is empty unless you pull them out of the printer and manually check the ink levels.

Its pretty much a guessing game with those old brother ink printers.

Hope this helps :)

No cartridge the printer say. i put new cartridge in


It mean that the black cartridge is not recognised. It the black cart is original or compatible? Some printer won't recognise cartridge, if the black and colour is not same type. Try to install the black only. Is it recognised?

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!

No ink display on brother mfc240c


First make sure that you are using Brother Cartridges, their machines are very sensitive to using generic ink. Put a brand new set of ink in the machine. Pull all the old cartridges out and put all new cartridges in. If this does not resolve the issue contact Brother, they are very good about helping their customers.
