HI,

If the printer is sitting idle and there is no output, check the following:


  1. Make sure that the printer has power.
  2. Check that the printer is not out of paper, ink, or toner and that it is not in an error state.
  3. Verify that the printer hardware is working before continuing. Run a self-test (refer to the printer manual for instructions).
  4. Check the printer cable and make sure that it is attached properly to the port and the printer. Refer to your printer documentation.

  1. Make sure that the printer is enabled and accepting jobs. See ``Enabling and disabling printers'' and ``Accepting or rejecting print jobs''.
  2. Verify that the system has the port configured properly. See ``Port does not respond'' for more information.

SOURCE: Multi-Function Center MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer: i get the message "print unable 36" displayed on m...

Error code 36 is generally because of a paper jam that was not cleared. Remove the rear jam cover (the plastic cover in the back center of the machine)and the paper tray and check for any pieces of paper. Sometimes just a scrap will remain, but it's enough to cause the machine to not work.

Once you've replaced the covers, if the jam code does not reset, turn the machine off and then back on.

SOURCE: I get the following message

This is the Brother definition of error code 4F:
"The head drive voltage has dropped from the high to low level in an abnormally short period." or "The head drive voltage has not risen to the specified level within the specified period in the self-diagnosis"
Causes:
"Piezoelectric ceramic actuator defective (Cracks or rare short)"
or
"Main PCB defective"
No simple fix I'm afraid. You could contact a Brother repair agent but I expect they will want to charge you more than a new machine. Sorry.

Can my brothers mfc 240c printer be used to print from more than 1 computer in my house wirelessly? how do I set this up?


The MFC-240C does not have a wireless interface, so you can't connect wirelessly directly to it. What you would have to do is set up a print server, which can be a standalone device or can be one of your computers, and then the other computers would print through that one connected computer.

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
