Question about Brother MFC-3240C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Just came home from a 3 week vacation and my printer stated that I needed a new black ink cartridge. I repalced the cartridge, but the printer message repeated itself, stating that my blank ink was near empty. I tried to print an item, however no ink was visible. Any suggestions. Jack

Pull out the black cartridge and try to shake it.With a piece of cotton clean the pot and pull back the cartridge and start the cleaning function.

My printer will not print with the black cartridge, it looks like it just dried up but I have changed it several times to be sure. It started after I was on vacation for a couple weeks. It was real light...


You need to run the head clean procedure as follows:

1 Start the AiO Home Center.
2 Click Maintenance.
3 Click Printhead Cleaning

You may have to do it more than once.

"No Black Ink Cartridge" after a new cartridge has been inserted


It sounds like the actual ink sensor has failed. You can check if it has a print head cleaning routine in the software on the computer. Most likely the actual ink sensor has died though, I've seen this many times. Call Brother to confirm, or maybe if it's still under any kind of warranty: 877-276-8437

We repalced the black ink cartridge but it wont print black


Most ink jet cartridges have "multiple" protectors to keep the ink from leaking or drying out and the electrical connectors from getting damaged before they are installed into the printer. You should be removing a plastic cap device for the ink, and typically, a piece of clear tape that protects some copper traces on the back of the cartridge. Make sure both are removed. If it still does not work take it back to who you bought it from and have them check to make sure there is ink in your new cartridge. Typically, you can shake it and hear a liquid sound. Good luck.

Horrible ink issues..


Unless you are printing a lot in that color, my Epson Stylus photo color R300 uses black at about twice the rate as the color ones. Most packages or ink, I find, also come with two black and one of every color. All my color ones seem to emply at approximately the same time as the others.

Won't print or copy


If printer was idle for weeks, even if "relativly new", run cleaning in control panel/printers and faxs/maintanence.
If still inoperative contact manufactor, see about support or warrenty claim. Not to bash lexmark but, the cheaper of their printers work the best, the costly ones like the all-in-one I bought from them, was used for three months, I hated it and threw it out.(cost $300.00)
