I cannot get the yellow colour to print either as a test print or full copies. I have cleaned the heads, checked ink levels and even replaced the yellow cartridge again but with no success.


Try the following steps.
1) remove the ink cartride and ckeck for damages
2) remove the ink cartridge and replace it securly.
Else the ink cartridge is faulty.

My mfc240c says to replace the yellow ink cartridge but I don't want to spend money on that if the 'light bulb' is ruined. When I turn on the machine, I don't see any light for scanning or copying. ...


By the "light bulb," do you mean the scanner lamp? That lamp should only turn on when you are actually scanning, faxing, or copying a document. You should be able to still use the machine to scan and fax, even with the yellow ink empty. Try scanning a document to see if the scanner lamp comes on.

As far as printing or copying goes, you won't be able to print or copy anything until you replace the yellow ink, even if you try printing in black and white only.

Prints photos with yellow horizontal stripes.Hv downloaded HP printing diagnostic utility and no errors were reported. If just using scanner to copy photos, prints fine but copying photos in library p


go into the printer and do a test print. start>printer & faxes>right click on the printer in question>properties>printer preference button> test print ... try the printer's own test print. This is usually caused by a poor print head, low ink, poor cartridge or the need for calibration. Look in the maintenance tab in the printer properties for head cleaner, jet cleaner etc. This also happens with refill ink cartridges.

Red will only print on test page.


So what you need to do is clean the cartridge from the printer toolbox..do all the three steps cleaning..(clean cartridge,prime cleaning,intermediate cleaning)..
once the cleaning is done..try to make a copy..if its still the same..change both the ink cartridge and then try to make a copy..if it resolves the issue then cartridge is defective..if it does not resolve the issue then printer is defective..

BLACK INK COPY FUNCTION


Something is definately damaged and with the low cost of printers and the high cost of repair I would recommend just replacing it. Hope you find this helpful,

I Have a Brother MFC-640CW all-in-one Inkjet Printer. I changed the ink cartridges and I can get them all working except the yellow, when I do a Test print all the other colors come out perfect except for...


press menu then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow-up quickly after another. machine will be in maintenance mode (all lights will flash).
press 7-6-4 and OK (or start-bk-copy).

Machine will do some refreshing of ink and some special cleaning.

When finished press 7-6-3 start-bk copy
machine will do a power purge.

leave maintenance mode by pressing 9-9.

do run a test print.

DO USE ORIGINAL BROTHER INK or skyhorse generic ink only due to the fact that other generic ink will defenetly do damage to the printer!

Mag & Yel Ink don't work


replace ALL carts with new ones.

press menu then start bk-copy then fourtimes arrow up quickly one after another. machine turns to maintenance mode.
press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk-copy.
machine will initiate the carts and refresh ink in tubes and ph and do some special power cleaning.

when finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy.
machine will do a power cleaning.

when finished press 9 then 9 to leave maintenance mode.

run a test print.

If you cant see any yellow and/or magenta the ph is defective and needs replacing (this happens mostly because of generic ink which contains the wrong chemical mixture to keep the ph alive).

Colors


Did you run a quality test print by pressing ink etc...?

It might be that you have no magenta anymore.

If you can see all the 4 colored blocks on the test sheet, firstly try to copy(!) a picture with pink colors and secondly run a pc print. If there is still no pink and you have it blue or green on the COPY one the scanner needs readjustment (from service personell). If you have trouble with the pc printing, too there might be 
a defective ink cart holder which leaks and mingles the ink (you need a new ink cart holder then)

Yellow color


What you can try is the following procedure:
1# Install new carts and make sure that they are really well placed (the procedure will consume a lot of ink)
2# press menu then start mono (blue copy button) then 4 times arrow up (tel index). Machine will be in maintenance mode.

press 7 then 6 then 4: display will show init_all
press start mono
machine will refill the tubes and the printhead with fresh ink and do some cleaning.
When maintenance is shown again press 0 (zero) then 9 when you are OUTSIDE US/CAN. Machine will print a test print.
If you are from US/CAN you have to leave the maintanence mode by pressing 9 then 9. Press ink etc. to do the test print job.

Do only one cleaning cycle in case you see some of the yellow blocks.
In case you still have trouble with seeing any yellow, the yellow ink channel or the print head is rotten and cant be fixed anymore.
