Re: changing the ink jet(Black)
The first thing to try is a hard reset. Unplug it and replug it in and see if anything happens. by dead, does it have any indication of being on? Please let me know if it is totally off or what. thanks

My printer did that a few months ago. I tried everything to get it printing black but in the end I had to take the ink cartridge back and return a new one. Some ink cartridges dry out when they are being shipped if not stored in proper conditions.
Did you make sure that the cart was placed well and the plastic hook secures the cart on top?
If you have used Easy Jet carts, you can stop here and give the whole machine a push to the bin! Easy Jet carts and some other generic ink carts clogg the fine filter in front of the nozzles which cant be cleaned anymore.
The ph as a spare part is more costly than a new mfc 240c at a price discount!
But you can try this at least: Use a new original brother carts (BK/C/Y/M). place carts and secure them! (this procedure will consume some ink!) press menu then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow-up button. machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh ink in tubes and ph and will do some cleaning cycles. when finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy to run a special power purge. When finished press 9 then 9. After machine is back in normal state run a test print. If you still cant see any bk the ph cant be fixed anymore.
