My brothers mfc 240c printer wont print because one ink is not full but it has black


You need to have ink in all cartridges to print. You can put a small electrical tape over the little window on the cartridge to print with empty inks, but you risk an air bubble in the ink tubes. If you don't care about printing color at some time, just cover the window on empty carts.

Black is not working in my brother mfc-240c printer


did you use genunie brother black ink cartridge?

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Cartridges. !!!!!!!!

These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

I located a page on http://www.fixyourownprinter.com forum, which had plenty of details about similar issues.

Try the forum, there are alot of issues like yours.

If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

My Brother MFC-240C printer is causing me grief. It prints out in black as though it is out of black ink but the ink is full. The other colors print out ok. Any thougths?


If the colors print OK, you could try cleaning the black nozzles. (Your machine may allow you to clean just the black or the colors, or all the nozzles).

1) Press the <Ink> or <Ink management> key

2) Use <Up> or <Down> arrows to navigate to "Cleaning" and press <OK>

3) Use <Up> or <Down> arrows to navigate to color that needs cleaning, or "All" and press <OK>

4) The display will show "Cleaning" and "Please wait"

5) After completion, the printer should be ready

If the problem persists, brother advises that you may need to repeat the process up to four times. If still no results, contact brother customer service.

Mfc-240c reading offline and empty black


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.
