Brother mfc printer will not print black ink


Sounds as if the black portion of the printhead has dried or become blocked. I would advise running cleaning cycles from your printer software or the printer itself (should be tucked away in maintenance/ink management).

If this fails to help then unfortunately it is likely to be a mechanical problem with the printer itself. In which case I would recommend getting in touch with Brother themselves for repair/replacement.

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.

Only colours are printing no black, all inks just replaced newly replaced black ink does not print despite several cleaning


Sounds like the black color lines (the "cables" between print head and cartridges) either have clogged ink in them, or air bubbles. Try the cleaning process found by pressing Ink Management and then Menu/Set twice. After the test print sheet is printed, answer the question(s) in the display and print up to five test prints by answering the questions.
It should solve the problem, but if it doesn't, you should perform a heavier duty purge found in the service mode.

Print faded after replacing black cartridge Brother 240C


The print heads don't appreciate being out of ink so the Brother printer has sensors to prevent that but the tape defeated that prevention. Maybe more cleanings or maybe a cartridge with printhead cleaning solution will help. Otherwise, I fear a new printer.

Can't print documents from Word.


Did you do a test print by pressing ink testprint etc.? Do you have all colors incl. BK? If yes, check the printersetting WITHIN Word. Is the mfc the printer to be recognized by Word or is it another one? If you miss the bk upon the test sheet try to clean the ink cart by help of pressing ink arrow-down-button (cleaning) and (blue) start mono. If there is no or not enough ink check the cart. In case you use third party ones, use an original brother cart and do the cleaning twice. Third party carts do make a lot of trouble due to malconstruction!

Brother problem


Did you use third party ink? If the ink is pigmented the filter in front of the printnozzels is clogged and cant be cleaned any more. What you can try is to buy a brand new original brother ink cart and do the cleaning 3 times. After that do a testsheet printing. In case its OK, your lucky and it was a problem of the cart. If you cant see any blocks (with the original ink used!!!) the printhead is crashed and has to be replaced (BTW: Its cheaper to buy a new mfc)! Do use only dye ink for brother printers!!!
