Let me give you a little history. I put some off brand ink sticks in my printer, which worked well in the past, and four sticks ( 2 and 3) melted through the inkloaded. The company warranted the repair but my computer repairman while removing a significant amount of melted ink and replacing the inkloader with no affect, stated that the printer could not be repaired. When I took the printer home and turned on the printer the control panel said "Replace yellow ink." I did so and I received a printer code "09,036.44:19335". I then unplugged the inknloader and put back the panels, just to see if the printer recognized the missing inkloader and received the following printer code: 37,0009.45:19494. Can this printer be repaired since my computer repairman told me that an installed new inkloader which did not fix the problem?

Re: CAN THIS PRINTER BE REPAIRED?
All Ink Melt Heaters are drawing less power than expected.
Thats what you should get with the ink loader unpluged.
The 09, coded have to do with the ink loader but may not in and of itself be the ink loader.
Here is the documentation.
Check that the Ink Sticks are genuine Xerox.
Check for obstructions in the Ink Wells.
Check the Ink Loader data ( P/J0150) and power ( P/J5) connections.
Verify the Ink Sticks advance in the Ink Loader.
If the problem persists, follow the procedure below.
Table 2. Process Drive Faults 9,0XX.4x Troubleshooting ProcedureStep Questions or Actions Yes No
Check that the ink stick is able to advance in the ink loader chute. Check for broken or wrong type ink sticks.
Are the Ink Sticks loading properly?
Go to Step 2.
Remove any blockage and/or replace the ink stick. Run clear ISC Fault test to clear the error. This must be performed following an ink loader replacement.
Test the appropriate Ink Melt Heater.
Run the Service Diagnostics Ink Melt [1,2,3,4] test.
1 = Yellow
2 = Cyan
3 = Magenta
4 = Black
Did the test pass?
Replace the Printhead ( REP 2.0.2).
Replace the Ink Loader ( REP 2.0.1).

If your printer was not in use and out of ink for a long while, the nozzle that feeds the ink through maybe blocked, also check your leaflet of your product (trouble shooting it may give you some idea) if
not.. contact the company where your product was manufactured for more information. hope these tips help!
Don't think this is the official way but it worked for me.
Get a long screw with a sharp tip
Turn off the printer
Open ink cover (where you insert the ink)
Tilt printer toward the back, you may have to jiggle it a little but either way with it tilted back or just laid on its back size (given time to cooled off) use the screw to poke the ink stick and work it back toward the area where you inserted it, then once there use the screw to ... screw a little into the wax stick enough to lift it out. Check for other loose or broken pieces which could jam up new sticks and clean out, a shot of pressurized air should do the trick then you should be good to go.
It is a great high volume printer with few problems, It doesn't like generic inks so if you don't buy the OEM inks you will see more problems like printheads failing at around $50.00 a pop. With the right inks and a little care it should give you years of excellent printing.
Hello, When you refill cartridges especially with manufactures such as Lexmark, HP, Cannon, etc. they put something on the bottom of the cartridge called a 'Smart Chip' this tells the printer how much ink is left, when the cartridge runs out of ink if you use that cartridge at all it tells the printer its out of ink. They do make devices to reset the Smart Chip but vary depending on the type of printer. The Smart Chips do wareout, and thus might give you a lot of problems, and all of this depends on the use of the cartridge.
Hi. When I fitted the second set of cartridges to my Epson Stylus Photo
1400, the printer failed to recognize any of them, even though they
were genuine Epson! I repeatedly installed and un-installed them
without success. After giving it a bit of thought, I had a hunch that
the contacts on the cartridges might not be making good contact with
the contacts on the printer as the cartridges seemed a little loose. I
removed each cartridge in turn and after putting some adhesive tape on
the opposite end to the contacts, (there are grooves cut into this end,
but the tape drops nicely into them when you install the cart) replaced
them all. (This had the effect of pushing the cartridges harder against
the contacts). Switched on again and all carts worked fine. So it seems
that even Epson can't make the cartridges to fit their own printer
properly! Having said that it's a great printer otherwise. I hope this
is helpful to you.
Regarding your problem: If one of the color ink cartidges is out of ink, the MFC 240C printer will not operate when you only install a black ink cartidge. It requires that all four catridges have ink available in them for it to function. When you examine a cartridge it may appear that it has a little ink in it when you get message that the cartridges needs to be replaced because a little ink remains to prevent the print head from drying out.

USING THIS TYPE OF REFILLS JUST ISN'T A GOOD IDEA. THE INK IS NOT THE SAME AS HP CARTRIDGE INK AND YOUR PRINTER WAS MADE FOR HP INK, NOT SOME GENERIC BRAND. THE FACT THAT IT DOESN'T WORK UNLESS YOU STICK IT IN WATER, ETC. SHOULD TELL YOU SOMETHING IS WRONG HERE. REFILLING IS MESSY, AND CAN CAUSE LEAKS IN YOUR PRINTER AND REALLY MESS THINGS UP. THE BEST BET IS TO USE THE PROPER INK CARTRIDGE WITH YOUR PRINTER. THATS THE TYPE OF INK IT WAS DESIGNED FOR.
The problem here is not so much the ink tanks (although that could be a cause), but the contact pins in the printer that touch the gold areas on the little pc card that is on the cartridge. Remove the cartridge, use a probe (or in desparate situations a finger), and feel for the contacts at the front of the cartredge carrier (stick the whatever into the slot that is left when you take the cartridge out of the carrier), and gently pull them upwards. Presto! the cartridge should now work when you put it back into place. You might have to bend the pins upwards a couple of times to get this fix to work, but it sure beats calling Canon every time a cartridge gives these errors! Good luck...
