Question about Brother Multi-Function Center MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Brother MFC-240C Hi, I am having problems with my printer. I tried to do a test print...the quality seems to be OK... all the colors comes out right. The only problem that might be is that the blue is always missing one square in the row - always the same one. All the other colours are fine. Also, when I print a document, the characters seams to be bolded (even though they are not in the document) as well as seeming that their are two of the same character typed very closely together. I don't know if this is to do with the alignment. Please advise. Thank you.

2nd first:
Yes. You should print a alignment test print and follow the instruction which is given on the test print.

I dont understand the first complain:
Do you miss several first squares or do you miss just one?
The latter one is no prob. You can ignore that. The first one (several 1. squares missing) is a serious prob: This indicates that a whole channel is defective!
Did you do a cleaning procedure and check the squares afterwards? If not do so. If you still miss the several 1. squares the ph needs relacement.

My mfc-240c won't print red, even with a new cartdrige.


Try running a few cleanings on the color.

Press the ink button and select cleaning,, do about five cleanings. Print the ink quality test page (from the ink button as well) and see the quality if it improved.

If it still doesnt print its possible the ink is clogged and may need servicing to replace the printer head

The unit function to print but there is no print out in the bond paper.


Try to run test print from menu tab of the printer if it’s print normally then the problem is in the computer printer settings, review color quality under advance tab and look for black label option to check if not disabled.

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.

My brother MFC 240C was set for printing only black and white, since I had only installed a black cartridge. Now I have installed the three color cartrdiges also. How do I change the settings to print...


You have to change the settings in your print driver. In Windows XP or Vista, go into the Control Panel and the Printers & Faxes applet. Right click on the Brother print driver and select Properties. In one of the tabs there should be an option for either Grayscale or Color printing (probably under Color Management) -- change this to Color and then click OK or Apply to save the changes.

By changing it in the print driver settings, the change should take effect for all programs that you print from.

Black ink in brother 240c printer does not print new cartridge


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. Better than throwing the printer.

Good Luck

No print at brother mfc-24c


"Machine Error 50" (or "Unable to Print") indicates either a simple problem such as a paper or part of a paper stuck inside the machine, which of course is solved by opening the machine as much as possible and remove the reason for the jam.
However, if that doesn't work, the error is mechanical, and there isn't much you can do. If the message comes back right after turning on the machine, you'll have to have service performed on the machine.

Cannot print blue/green colors.


I think your cartridge is defective, you need to replace a new cartridge.
