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

1 Answer

I have a Brother MFC-290C which takes LC61 cartridges. I recently bought some supposedly compatible cartridges from Print-rite (it says that they are compatible with LC 61 and even lists my printer). But the printer is unable to recognize it and keeps saying there is no cartridge and keeps telling me to reinsert. It doesn't seem to fit. Any suggestions?

Some brothers are not compatible with generic cartridges. I suggest you put in the originials, and I'll bet it will be okay.
Please let me know . thanks :0)

I have a all in one color LC61 printer, do all colors have to be filled to print blk only?


Greyscale is color not black only.
You can print in black and it will look grayscale only darker, printers are a pain to work with after a year has gone by, I can expect almost a half hour to print something with my $400 epson because one of the colors is out even though I never printed in the last year a colored page. I take the color cartirges out and they are empty, but I only print a page 2-3 times a year. I use the scanner all the time. Brother and epson have their print heads in the printer not the cartridge so make sure your inks are always have something in it or it will be miricle for the printer to last more than a year. Check colors every other week. One Epson printer only lasted 3 months because I never used it(print head dried up). Never use the set up with tubes running outside printer to small tanks of ink if you only use it occationally.

Am I able to print on my LC61 with just black ink?


Most printers require the tiniest bit of color to print in black to keep the color jets from drying out.

If your color cartridges are fine, and you're only asking about settings, then, when you have a document positioned to print, left click one in the window you want to print, hold down the CTRL key and press P

You'enter the printer window

Select "Preferences"
Then "Black and White"
then "Print only from black cartridge"

Ciao,

My Brother LC61 Series printer does not print - printer is less than 1-yr. I purchased new ink cartridge a couple days ago, however, all of a sudden, the printer will not print.


1st question that should be asked, is was it a genuine Brother approved cartridge with the right value of filtered ink?

If not then the jets will be possibly clogged.

if you return it for repair to brother under warranty, make sure its fitted with genuine cartridges otherwise warranty is void

please rate my help++++thanks for using fixya

Print Brother Mfc-290c Error Print unable 4F


Hi there
With some Brother printers you can try this.

Access the internal maintenance mode by pressing the Menu/Set button, then press * 2 8 6 4 within 2 seconds. This should put you in the maintenance mode menu. Enter 80, and then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key. You'll find an entry listed as purge count. If number is over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.

This will reset the purge count value. Then the printer will restart, hopefully without the annoying cannot clean message.


Some times this happens because of using cheap compatible ink cartridges if this is the case change the ink cartridges.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
