Question about Brother MultiFunction Center MFC-440CN All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Brother MFC 260C ink problem.

I have recently installed a full set of compatable inks into my Brother 260c all in one, I have run through the install procedure as instructed by the manual, all colours are working fine except the (Magenta), I have been through the procedure about 5 times (still not working) I have installed an original set of (innobella) brother cartridges and still have the same problem. Can anyone please give me information on resolving this problem. Or could it be that the printer faulty.

Foot note
I contacted BROTHER about the problem, there reply was that i had used compatable inks and that is why i have the problem. Has anybody else come accross this problem.
I look forward to your reply.

Once the ink dries in the printhead, it can't be cleaned out. It's almost always the magenta or black that plugs first. The printhead is a shop replacement, and costs more than the new machines available now.

My printer is not HP it is Brother MFC-260C


The printer uses several ways to show ink levels. When you replace the cartridge it askes if it has been replaced, Say yes and it sets the ink level monitor to full. As the cartridge empties it them checks through an electronic eye system through the cartridge. When it cannot see any ink it says it is empty.
Replace the cartridges and it should fix the problem.

I have replaced all my ink cartridges, colour printing fine, black won't print. Have replaced black cartridge again, incase the last one was faulty and it still isn't working. Yes i am using brother...


If one or more of the ink colors are missing from pages printed by your machine (i.e. received faxes, copies and/or documents printed from the PC etc), nozzles in the print head may be clogged, or the ink cartridge in question may not be installed correctly. Verifying that the ink cartridges are installed correctly and/or cleaning the print head may solve the problem.

I HAVE MFC-260C, WHEN I PRESS COLOR BUTTON CAN PRINT ALL THE COLOUR BUT WHEN I PRESS BLACK BUTTON,NOTHING HAD COME OUT,WHY??


is there ink in the black cartridge? The messages on the LED screen will tell you of your status if out or low.

If ink is present, then the ink nozzle needs cleaning. Basically an alcohol cleaning to liquify dry ink..

How do I refill my ink cartridges?


If you bought an ink refill kit, then there should be a bellows with a fine needle tip filled with ink and a rubber stopper. There should have been instructions included with the kit.
If you only bought the bellows and there's no instructions or rubber stopper, then I'm afraid you are missing some pieces. You need more than just the ink to refill the cartridges correctly, or else they will leak all over the inside of the printer.
