If there is, then because it is a laser-printer, not an ink-jet printer, there's no "user-serviceable" parts.

So, take it to a qualified printer-technician.

My black ink ran out so I replaced the ink


Hi:
I have used the printer series that you have for years, and once in awhile, I get a new cartridge that won't immediately print. Often, there is just a bit of dried ink residue on the print head, and that won't allow the cartridge to work correctly.

Some simple things to try are :

1) Remove the black cartridge. and take a damp paper towel and gently swab the print head area. Next, apply some pressure to the sides of the black cartridge, until you see black ink oozing out of the print head. Repeat if needed. Once the ink starts flowing, blot off the excess, and install the cartridge.

If you can't get ink to flow, then the cartridge might be bad. Most of them have an expiration date on the packaging.

My brother mfc-240c doesn't print black. I replace the black with a new cartridge as it still wouldn't print black. I also tried to clean all the colors numerous times, but to no avail. I don't know what...


Wow, something similar just happened to me the other day, my black ink ran out & when I replaced it, it just wouldn't print, I kept trying to print things and it sounded like it was printing but then it would just shoot out a blank page of paper (I was trying to print BLACK). So, I went to the Brother website for troubleshooting tips and it said to make sure I had the ink cartridges installed properly so I took the black cartridge back out (it WAS installed correctly, but I was willing to try anything at this point), so I took it out, gave it a blow, like how you would blow on the old Nintendo game catridges when they did not work-I'm not sure if this did anything at all but it's what I did) and then I put it back in). The machine asked if had just replaced black I said "Yes", then it did another "cleaning", as it does when you replace any cartridge. Then I went in the menu to have it print out a "test page" (the instructions for this were in the troubleshooting tips on the website), the test page printed out with NOT all the little black squares as IT SHOULD BE so when it asked me if the test page was ok, I said "NO", then it did ANOTHER CLEANING and I did another test page, this time it worked ok, then I was able to print.
So, bottom line is, maybe take the ink out, make sure you installed it correctly, put it back in, print a test page, if the test page does nto come out right, then tell it it is no good by selecting "NO", then it will do another cleaning and then maybe it will work, if not, then check for more troubleshooting tips on their website, good luck.

Printing not complete


you may check your ink cartridge
1) the cartridge some color almost empty, need to change a new one or refill the match color ink. test it and go next if not fixed
2) long time less using cause some color ink chanel(holes) dryer, you may take out the color ink cartridge and put it's surface of bottom (just touch ) in the clean water 1 Hr, then set back and test it. still not fixed, you also need to do same thing if your print head is separated from your ink cartridge

My printer wont write, it only prints out the images and colour


Here's the fix for the black not printing...Take the black ink cartridge out and punch a hole in the round dark circle at top right of cartridge with an ice pick or something sharp. Blow in the hole and make sure you have something under it just in case the ink starts dropping. Clean the bottom and put it back in and it should work.

Black ink not printing


Fix ink cartridge
I had same problem. I must have ran the clean cycle more than 30-50 times over a period of days. That never made any difference. I was about to toss the whole thing but figured I would try one more thing. If it didn't work I would be in no worse shape. Here is what I did.
Took an almost empty black cartridge and inject a lot of 100% Acetone to dilute ink. Left some black in it since I didn't want to think it was empty. Inserted this cartridge and ran the cleaning a few time. IT WORKED. I used my word processor program and filled a page with large bold font characters and printed a page or two. Each page cleared more nozzles. After doing this cleaning/printing a number of time, I put in the full good cartridge. Ran the cleaning a few time to eject any of the Acetone diluted ink. Ran the printed page a few time to remove more of the diluted ink.
Everything seems to work now.

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.

No black ink print. Prints in light blue


Cartriges have a shelf life. It's printing in blue either because it has dried up or is out. Different cartriges have different timelines but if you haven't been using the printer often, it could have dried up or is simply out of ink. I would suggest first to try cleaning the head of the cartrige where the ink comes out with alcohol and a Q-tip and then if that doesn't work, buying a new black cartrige.

If the printer has been used exrensively then its probably the printhead that needs replacing. The i70 printer uses a QY6-0046-000 Canon Printhead Printheads are available from many sites on-line and thru PC World
