Question about Brother Multi-Function Center MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Brother MFC-240C I want to get the service/repair manual for this printer. Currently the red ink is not printing and the line (red ink) appears to have air bubbles in it. The 3 other colors are working OK. I need to find out how to disemble the printer to access the print head and lines. Thanks Werner werapp@shaw.ca

    All going well then magenta stops printing suddenly and completely. No error messages. No magenta printing whatsoever in test pages or in red squares in graphics programs - cyan and yellow and black all OK.



    Have tried 6+ "cleaning cycles" but no change - no magenta at all.

    Have dismantled printer as per similar to

    but can't get printhead out of cleaning station or remove from printer to clean.

You might try a head cleaning and re calibration exercise first.

Disassemble Brother MFC 240C


I know this issue may have been resolved by you already, since I am now looking at this issue for you, however I am setting up the answer to help others that may have a similar problem in the future. You will need to reference a Brother servicing manual as it will show you how to remove the printer assembly and includes part numbers that you may need to replace. Hope this is helpful!

How to make duplex copies with a Brother MFC-240C printer


The Brother MFC-240C is a well-performing multifunction color printer. There is a lot that it can do, but one limitation it has is the inability to make double-sided copies. If you need to make a duplex copy of something, you can do it manually by re-feeding the paper once you've copied the first side.

After the first side of the page has been printed, let the paper sit for a minute or so to make sure the ink has dried. Then, put it back into the paper tray on the top of the stack. Make sure the back side of the page (the side that has not been printed on yet) is facing down, and the lead edge of the page (the edge that was fed out of the printer first) is facing toward the inside of the printer, rather than toward you.

Once the paper is set, push the tray back in and print the document or image that you want to appear on the back of the page. If you are printing multiple pages, position the paper so that the page you want printed on first is on the top of the stack.

The MFC-240C was not designed for duplex printing, so you may run into some issues with it, especially when you are using very thick or very thin paper. With very thin paper, the ink may bleed through to the other side of the page. With very thick paper, you may have to let the paper sit for a longer time after the first side is printed, because the ink could take longer to set and dry.

Not printing


First disconnect the printer from the computer, next turn off the printer off and then while holding the on button down turn the printer back on this should print a test page. If the printer ink is goo you might have to replace the print head of the printer.

Mfc-240c not printing black ink


try to turn off the printer. Then from the manual that you have, remove the toner by opening the machine. Then tap and shake the toner. Then reinsert the toner, turn on the printer and print. If the black ink did not print, there is a mechanical problem with the machine itself. Consult brother for further help.

My mfc-240c won't print red, even with a new cartdrige.


Try running a few cleanings on the color.

Press the ink button and select cleaning,, do about five cleanings. Print the ink quality test page (from the ink button as well) and see the quality if it improved.

If it still doesnt print its possible the ink is clogged and may need servicing to replace the printer head

I have a Brother MFC 240C printer that will not print black ink. I just changed all the cartridges. All the other cartridges print. I ran the clean cycle many times. No error messages just blank paper.


I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck

Red ink nozzle on a brother mfc-240c is clogged


I found an article on how to unclog Brother inkjet nozzles on the InkMagic website. It worked for me.

http://www.inkmagic.com/Articles/Unclog%20nozzles%20on%20your%20Brother%20multifunction%20inkjet%20printer.htm

I'm also using their ink now. I'm a photographer so colour is really important to me. InkMagic ink is as close to the orginal Brother ink as I've found. The MFC-240 cartridges are here:
