You need a brand new ink absorber which can be purchased at any service dealer (near your home: see www.brother.com and choose your country and your mfc).

see here how to open the mfc (use google to translate german):

Mfc 640cw has a message unable to clean


This usually means the cartridge itself has developed a problem.
Try removing the cartridge and wiping the print head of the with a clean non-lint rag and alcohol. Then replace the cartridge, sith the printer off if possible. Turn on printer and attempt to have the printer software clean the head again. If negative you may need to replace the cartridge but use an OEM recommended cartridge replacement. After market brands tend to create more issues.

Brother MFC-640CW All-In-One yellow not printing


if your print head is removable (the thing your ink cartridge clips into) remove it and clean it out with asorbic alcohol on both the print face and the ink inlet area- If your yellow has been empty for a while before you bought a new cartridge, it is possible that ink has dried in the ink channels of the print head and this is almost impossible to repair and you would be better off buying a new print head- Also if you have a fairly new printer you can contact the manufacturer about your issue and they may or may not send you one for free- My KodaK AIO had the same issue and Kodak replaced the print head for free all I had to do was take the time to call them

Keeps saying insert ink cartridge but is in there


Just unplug the machine and plug back in while holding the stop key, usually clears that error. Make sure there is ink in the cartridge first.

MFC 640CW not refilling with new ink cart.


Unplug printer from power. Wait a minute. Take all carts out. Plug machine to power. mfc demands carts. Reinsert carts (have a look if they all filled with ink!!). If asked press 2 (No change) despite you use a new cart press 1 Yes cart changed.

Should work!
