Question about Brother Multi-Function Center MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer
Hi there, unfortunately there were a few months gap between runnin out of ink and replacing my black ink cartridge in my brother multifunctional printer. I have cleaned with cotton buds and a damp cloth and removed some dried ink from around the protruding spike. however although colour will print, the black still will not =( . please could you give me some advice on how to clean the areas I cannot easily get to on this ink channel
What you can try is the following:
press menu then start black copy then fourtimes arrow-up button. machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then OK (or start bk copy). machine will refresh the tubes and ph with fresh ink and do some cleaning routines. When finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then OK (or start bk copy). Machine will do a powerpurge. Aftertaht leave the maintenance mode by pressing 9 then 9. Run a quality test print by pressing INK etc.
If you are lucky the ph part for bk will work again.
If not the ph has dried out and cant be fixed anymore. The ph needs replacing.

SOURCE: dried out ink blockage?
Hi, unless you can remove the printhead this is going to be a hard task. If you can remove the printhead, hold it over steam (using tongs) for a couple of minutes. If you cant remove it, then you could try a hot damp cloth, and hold it on the printhead till the cloth cools, repeat 4-5 times and see how this goes
