    it work but you don't need a new tank if you cant get one. i fix my next printer, all i do is to take out the old one and just wash out the ink then put the filters to dry and put them back in.

Johnny, you have to open the printer and to change the tank which is placed right behind the cart holder. The tank is connected by two tubes. The new should have two new tubes. Use those new tubes!!!

After changing and reassembling the printer you have to do a reset:
press menu then start mono (blue button) then fourtimes arrow up. machine will be in maintenance mode. press 8 then zero. Press severaltimes start mono (blue) until PURGE XXXX (X is a no.) appears. Press 2 then 7 then 8 then 3. Purge count will be 0000. Press Stop button. In case machine is still in maintenance mode press 9 then 9. Thats it

    This will be as stone when its dried up! The cotton wont take up any ink anymore and the ink will seriously damage the machine from inside!

My MFC 240 is printing blanks, with both black and colors. It is doing the printing motions but just coming out blanks.

Go into the printer properties and access print head clean. this should fix it assuming the ink tanks have ink in them!!

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.
