Mfc-3240c shows ink cartridge missing. I don't need the color so what leads do I short to show a circuit complete?


Simple answer.
You can't, doing so will cause the printhead to fail electronically wich will destroy the machine.
If you only ever print Black and White get yourself a Mono-Laser machine.

My brother 3240 inkjet printer will not print the blue cyan colour. I've run the cleaning cycle a dozen times, What can I do to correct this problem?????


There's not a lot you can do, once the printhead is plugged like that it's a shop repair. It will need a new printhead that only a shop can replace and the cost of the new printhead is around $120.00. You're better off to buy the new similar machine from Brother for around $120.00 and get a new one year warranty.

My printer wont print even after changing ink and cleaning


When cleaning doesn't help, you need a new printhead. Around $89.00 now and then you add labor. They sell a new MFC 490 for around $120.00 with a year warranty.

Changed ink cartridges but it will not print. Pages are blank.


Sometimes many cleaning cycles will clean the printhead, it uses a lot of ink. The best is a new printhead but the price plus labor is more than a new MFC 490

Brother MFC 3240C error unable to change appeared and can't fix


check to see if the encoder strip is outside of the printhead assembly.
you will need to slide the printhead al the way to the left and see if the encoder strip is in the printhead groove.

Brother mfc 3240c black won't print after refill


To solve the printing problem..


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

The printhead cant travel without prob in its rail. Try to pick up the paper which might stuck somewhere.

Clogged inkjets


Install original brother ink carts. Do the cleaning 3 times. If you dont have any success afterwards the printhead has to be replaced (It could be cheaper to buy a new mfc then!)
