On the right hand side of your machine-FRONT-right there is a panel that should have come with a sticker on it, you may have taken the sticker off so anyway, it is the ONLY panel on the front right side it just pulls down, put your finger on the rigth side of the machine yhou will feel a little indent and then pull it down, and there are your four ink cartridges. Each cartridge must be replaced individually and on the bottom of the panel you pulled down it will be labeled (B for Black, Y for Yellow, C for Cyan and M for Magenta, and each print cartrdige should also be colored to make it easier as well). Anyhow, you pull the little plastic purple tab that is covering each ink cartridge (in the machine) forward towards you and it should release the cartridge for you to pull out and dispose of) every now and then I have a little trouble and need to use something to help me get started pulling a cartridge forward-just like the tip of a pen or something but you should have no problem with this, and then you put the new cartridge in-the way it says-there should be an arrow on it showing you which way to put it in (also look as you pull the old one out) and as you push the new one in, the plastic tab will click shut and you will hear a "'spray sound". When you are done, close the cover and the machine will first do a "cleaning" before it is ready to be used again. Here is a tip for you as well, this machine WILL NOT WORK if you have any empty ink cartridges, they ALL must have some ink in them for you to print anything, even if you just want to use black, you have to color cartridges as well, I try to use every last bit of color before replacing a cartrdige, I wait until IT MAKES ME REPLACE IT by saying "empty black cartrdige" before I replace it "near empty" is NOT ENOUGH to replace it, mine has been saying "near empty magenta" for weeks now and it still works fine, it just wants me to replace with a new one and waste more money as this ink IS VERY EXPENSIVE, it cost me over $75 to replace all four ink cartridges, the best deal is to get the combo pack with all the colors, or the one with the three colors and then the double black pack. some colors will obviously get used quicker than other colors, so like I said, I have been waiting to replace that "near empty magenta" UNTIL I HAVE TO, as it hs been telling me to do so for weeks now, and I have a replacment in the drawer but once I replace it, it is like throwing money in the garbage since the one that is near empty, is FINE sitting in there while I PRINT OUT BLACK AND WHITE COPIES most of the time anyway, it just won't let you print if ANY of the cartrdiges are ACTUALLY EMPTY, even if you are not using that color, you still cannot have an empty cartrdige or NO cartridge in the machine, it just WIL NOT WORK. GOOD LUCK.

What does cyan mean on a brother 240-c all in 1 printer it says replace cyan it wont do nothing


Cyan is the "blue/green" ink cartridge which is required to print in full color. Some printers stop working when one or more ink cartridges is empty. Get a complete set for some savings and for the next cartridge that gets empty. Printers are cheap now, it's the ink that gets costly.

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


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.

Replacing the cart holder on a Brother MFC 240C


Somethings that have worked for some Brother owners to get cartridges recognised.

1. With your MFC powered up, open it up and remove the cartridge you are having a problem with, then close the MFC, leaving it powered up. It should report that there is no cartridge in the machine.

Still with the MFC powered up, open it up and reinsert the ink cartridge, then close the MFC. It should either ask if you have replaced a cartridge or go into its cleaning mode.

Answer "yes" to "have you replaced cartridge?" and it should either "print" or "clean" and then "print".


2. The cartridge holder in the printer has an "electronic eye" (light sensor) of some type for each cartridge.
Some users have found that putting either permanent marker/sharpie/black PVC tape either on the area of the ink cartridge that goes near the sensor or alternatively putting tape over the sensor itself allows printing to occur.
The problem with this method is that the printer will no longer recognise near-empty cartridges and so will not warn you to replace them and so the print head may be damaged. This is said to work on LC57 icartridges used with the following models: DCP-330C, DCP-350C, DCP-540CN, DCP-560CN, FAX-2480C, MFC-240C, MFC-440CN, MFC-465CN, MFC-665CW, MFC-685CW, MFC-885CW, MFC-3360C, MFC-5460CN, MFC-5860CN.

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!

Mfc 240 c


Did you do a firmware update? If not go to brother homepage , download the update tool and do the update if it is avaiable.

Do you print with generic ink? If yes this prob is because of different color depth. Try to print with the original innobella ones or do some resettings within the printers properties when you print a pic from pc.

You may test the print out by printing directly from a picture card without pc.
