You said you replaced the cartridges. Were they Genuine Brothers' Cartridges?
My Brother MFC-240C, does not like Generic Printer Cartridges.That sounds like your problem.Also I had with Brother's was problem with Color. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, or Blue Green, etc.The Generic Cartridges, also printed lines thru the words. That's what the Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, but you have to fill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY, or Take them to have them filled.
So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for the PRINTERS.
This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.
Lift the scanner cover from the right-hand side of the MFC until it locks securely into the open position.
If one or more ink cartridges are empty, for example Black, the LCD shows Ink Empty Black and Cover is Open.
Pull the ink cartridge hook toward you and remove the ink cartridge for the color shown on the LCD.
Open the new ink cartridge bag for the color shown on the LCD, and then take out the ink cartridge.
Remove the cartridge covers.
Each color has its own correct position. Keep the ink cartridge in an upright position when you insert it into slot. Press down on the ink cartridge until the hook snaps over it.
Lift the scanner cover to release the lock. Gently push the scanner cover support down and close the scanner cover.
If you replaced an ink cartridge while Near Empty was displayed on the LCD, the LCD may ask you to verify that it was a brand new one. Example: Did You Change Blck? 1.Yes 2.No. For each new cartridge you installed, press 1 on the dial pad to automatically reset the ink dot counter for that color. If the ink cartridge you installed is not a brand new one, please be sure to select 2.
If you wait until Ink Empty message is displayed on the LCD, the MFC will automatically reset the ink dot counter.
If the Install message is on the display after you have installed ink cartridges, check that the ink cartridges are installed properly.
When inserting a new cartridge, you may receive a prompt
"The installed ink cartridge differs from the original ink cartridge for the printer. Your printouts may be different from those printed using original ink cartridges. Do you want to continue using the currently installed ink cartridge?"
If you click Yes, printing will continue. If you select No, you will be prompted to change the cartridge. Manufacturer prompts may vary.
