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

1 Answer

Check Connection Brother MFC-845CW

My husband moved his printer from one desk to another (didn't disconnect it, just picked it up and moved it to another table) and now I can't get anything to print. I have turned the computer and the printer off, I have disconnected the cables and the plugs, I have uninstalled and reinstalled the printer nad I have replaced the magenta ink cartredge that was showing as low and still, nothing. It shows that the print job is going to queue but then nothing comes out. The only discrepancy I can find is when you hit the "SCAN" function and it reads, "check connection". Any thoughts?

If it doesn't have a dedicated ink management button, cycle through your options using the Menu button until you get to ink management.

Unable to clean 50 (brother MFC-845CW

Hi, to clean up brother MFC-845CW

Open the printer

Remove the ink cartridges from the print head.

Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water to thoroughly clean the print head.

Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab.

Once finished, allow to dry and replace the cartridges

Try to print something now

You can also use the manual for help.

Unable to print copies

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Printer error

in a store near your home? or at eBay? or from brother homepage?

Why will you take the printer apart? The cart holder is at the right front side behind a clap (where the sticker shows you the innobella carts ;-))
