Be sure to answer the control panel question by pressing the up or down arrow key to answer yes. See here. and here.
If that doesn't work, try to reset the printer by following these instructions.

Tip

How to change an ink cartridge on the Brother MFC-240C


The Brother MFC-240C uses an individual cartridge for each color (black, yellow, cyan, and magenta). When one of the colors is out of ink, the printer will tell you to replace the ink cartridge. To replace a cartridge, follow the steps below.

All four cartridges are located on the right front side of the printer, behind a cover. Pull the cover forward from the side, where there is a slight cutout for you to grab. When the cover falls forward, you'll see the ink cartridge holders.

For whichever ink cartridge you are replacing, push down on the purple handle for that color. The ink cartridge holder will open and fall forward, revealing the ink cartridge itself. Push down on the cartridge holder and the cartridge should pop toward you a little bit. Grasp the cartridge and remove it.

Open the new cartridge and remove it from its wrapper. Discard the yellow cover, unless you plan to use it for the old cartridge.

Insert the new cartridge into the correct slot (from left to right: black, yellow, cyan, magenta) so that the word "brother" is right-side up and located toward the top of the cartridge. Once it is most of the way in, push the ink cartridge holder up by the purple handle until it snaps into place. Then close the ink cartridge cover.

If you were out of ink, the machine should recognize the new cartridge and perform its calibration. If it doesn't automatically recognize it, it will ask if you have changed one or more of the cartridges. Press "1" for Yes.

Once you have printed a test page with all four colors to verify that everything is working, either discard the old cartridge in the trash or save it to recycle. But don't get rid of it until you are sure the new cartridge is recognized and working.

I replaced the cayan ink cartridge, and it says there is no cartridge installed. I bought a second cartridge, and it still says that.


if you install the old empty cartridge and the message does not appear then the cartridge U have bought is not original

NO CARTRIDGE message when new cartridge installed


Make sure there is ink in all cartridges and unplug the machine. Plug it back in while you hold the stop key and it should clear the error.

Brother MFC 240C has error message ''NO BLACK CARTRIDGE'' even though new cartridge is installed.


I learned this one from a Brother tech, and it usually works:
  1. Put your machine where you can easily reach the power plug.
  2. Lay a few layers of paper on the desk beside it to protect the desk from ink.
  3. With the machine plugged in, remove all four inks. Stand them upright on those papers you laid down.
  4. Close the top.
  5. Unplug the machine and wait 15 seconds before plugging it back in.
  6. Of course, the machine will complain that there is no ink installed. It should tell you which color it want you to install first. Raise the top and install all inks, in the order it asks.
  7. Lower the top when all the inks are in, and the machine should return to normal.
These machines detect ink by shining a light through a clear rib in the cartridge. What you've done resets the machine's threshold between light and dark, so it recognizes full cartridges again.
If it doesn't work, try it once more, and you might still get lucky. otherwise, you may have a defective cartridge, or you may need a new main board$$$.

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!
