    Hi, I was the one who posted this problem. I have found a solution! I changed the printer settings for the paper. Instead of the plain paper setting, I switched it to inkjet paper. It works well with the color and / or greyscale setting, but the black is darker with the greyscale setting. Hope this helps...it took me months to figure this out.

My Brother MFC-240C printer is causing me grief. It prints out in black as though it is out of black ink but the ink is full. The other colors print out ok. Any thougths?


If the colors print OK, you could try cleaning the black nozzles. (Your machine may allow you to clean just the black or the colors, or all the nozzles).

1) Press the <Ink> or <Ink management> key

2) Use <Up> or <Down> arrows to navigate to "Cleaning" and press <OK>

3) Use <Up> or <Down> arrows to navigate to color that needs cleaning, or "All" and press <OK>

4) The display will show "Cleaning" and "Please wait"

5) After completion, the printer should be ready

If the problem persists, brother advises that you may need to repeat the process up to four times. If still no results, contact brother customer service.

I have a Brother MFC 240C printer that will not print black ink. I just changed all the cartridges. All the other cartridges print. I ran the clean cycle many times. No error messages just blank paper.


I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck
