I suggest making sure you installed them correctly, you can take them out and put them back in, it will ask you if you just replaced the cartridges one by one "select yes" if they are new, then try to print out a test sheet (which you do this through one of the options in your "menu" on the machine itself, it should be in your manual or you can look online in the Brother 240-MFC troubleshooting tips for printing, this just happened to me a few days ago and I got the answer there. So, when you print out the test sheet it will probably have colors missing and you say "NO' that it is NOT GOOD, and then it will do another cleaning and then print out another test sheet and hopefully it will work then, otherwise tell it NO again and have it do another cleaning, sometimes it does take a few times. This happened to me the other day when I replaced a black ink cartridge and I could not get ANYTHING TO PRINT, it kept coming out BLANK PAGES, so I went to the troubleshooting tips on the website and this was the advice I was given, it took THREE CLEANINGS and three test sheets before the black boxes printed out fully on the test sheet with none missing and ONLY THEN was I able to print successfully, GOOD LUCK TO YOU.

My brothers mfc 240c printer wont print because one ink is not full but it has black


You need to have ink in all cartridges to print. You can put a small electrical tape over the little window on the cartridge to print with empty inks, but you risk an air bubble in the ink tubes. If you don't care about printing color at some time, just cover the window on empty carts.

My mfc-240c won't print red, even with a new cartdrige.


Try running a few cleanings on the color.

Press the ink button and select cleaning,, do about five cleanings. Print the ink quality test page (from the ink button as well) and see the quality if it improved.

If it still doesnt print its possible the ink is clogged and may need servicing to replace the printer head

I cant print in color


For reasons known only to Brother you are unable to print ANYTHING if you are out of any color of ink. If you are out of black and need to only print in color it WILL NOT work

Black ink does not print on brother 240c


If you haven't changed it recently, it may be out of black ink. The product code for Black is LC51BK.

Won't print in color


Make sure you run the cleaning mode under the INK button. Run it 2-3 times to get the ink through the tubes. If you are using generic ink, it may have clogged the tubes in side the unit.

Problem with Ink Cartridge


If you only want to print in b/w and do not use the color ones there is a workaround.

Please notice that you will destroy the C/Y/M part of the print head because the ph needs the ink to prevent a dryout!!!

Simply stick some adhesive tape around the window in the middle between the ink-outlet and the valve. The flag inside signals the printer the inklevel (and also the cartridge being installed).
