Question about Brother MFC-465CN InkJet Printer

Use MFC-465CN withou cartridges

I'd like to use only the Scan and Fax (out) functions of the machine, but can't get it running without inserting the cartridges first. As I'm far from the machine 90% of the year, I'm afraid it will just get the ink dried out, and I will have to put new cartridges. I don't need to print in colour.

Any suggestions how to achieve this?

In order to scan you need to have ink in cartridges?... great design!!! cheat the printer - use black electric tape to cover transparent slots at the back of your cartridges (printer will think that it has ink and it should stop that annoying beeping)

Brother MFC 3360 C can not send fax.It show "sending" ....thats all never finished.


When my fax machine does this, it prints out an error code. Most of the times it's "Poor transmission" or "Bad line". I can duplicate the problem by trying to fax out on my VoIP line instead of my regular land line.

Anymore today, it's usually easier to scan and email the document. I can e-fax the scan if I'm sending it to someone without an email address.

I can not clear the memory MC-465CN on the fax - this is a mulitple function Brother - copies, scans, faxes,photo


If you clear the memory, any faxes stored will be also be erased. This solution assumes that you have the fax storage option "On" to store faxes in memory.

On the control panel:

1) Press <Menu>

2) Use <Up> or <Down> arrow keys until "Fax" appears on the display, press <OK>

3) Use <Up> or <Down> until "Remote Fax Option" or "Advanced Fax Operation" appears, press <OK>

4) Use <Up> or <Down> until "Off" appears, then press <OK>

5) You will be prompted: "Erase all fax?" 1. Yes 2. No

Press <1> to erase all faxes in memory.

6) Press <Stop/Exit> to return to normal function

How can I delete the memory on a brother mfc-465cn printer fax machine? It will not receive faxes due to this


Review page 65 in your manual. Changing the "Advanced Fax Operations:"

If received faxes are left in your machine's
memory when you change the Advanced Fax
Operations, the LCD will ask you one of the
following questions:

Erase All Fax?
Yes - Press 1
No - Press 2

Print All Fax?
Yes - Press 1
No - Press 2

• If you press 1, faxes in the memory will
be erased or printed before the setting
changes. If a backup copy has already
been printed it will not be printed again.
• If you press 2, faxes in the memory will
not be erased or printed and the setting
will be unchanged.

Here is the user's guide.
Go to page 65 (page 81 on the reader bar on the bottom) and turn off Advanced Fax Operations > It will ask you if you want to print the faxes or erase them. Also, see page 80 ( page 96 in the reader) first. It explains what to do.

Replacing the cart holder on a Brother MFC 240C


Somethings that have worked for some Brother owners to get cartridges recognised.

1. With your MFC powered up, open it up and remove the cartridge you are having a problem with, then close the MFC, leaving it powered up. It should report that there is no cartridge in the machine.

Still with the MFC powered up, open it up and reinsert the ink cartridge, then close the MFC. It should either ask if you have replaced a cartridge or go into its cleaning mode.

Answer "yes" to "have you replaced cartridge?" and it should either "print" or "clean" and then "print".


2. The cartridge holder in the printer has an "electronic eye" (light sensor) of some type for each cartridge.
Some users have found that putting either permanent marker/sharpie/black PVC tape either on the area of the ink cartridge that goes near the sensor or alternatively putting tape over the sensor itself allows printing to occur.
The problem with this method is that the printer will no longer recognise near-empty cartridges and so will not warn you to replace them and so the print head may be damaged. This is said to work on LC57 icartridges used with the following models: DCP-330C, DCP-350C, DCP-540CN, DCP-560CN, FAX-2480C, MFC-240C, MFC-440CN, MFC-465CN, MFC-665CW, MFC-685CW, MFC-885CW, MFC-3360C, MFC-5460CN, MFC-5860CN.

Black cartridge doesn't print


you need to do a hard reset on the printer as well it might clear up the problem and recognize the ink at its proper levels.

refer to your user manual or let us know and we will find the procedure to do so.

i have a similar model and know how picky they can be.

Fax


Non. C'est ne pas possible avec le mfc240c. Vous besoin un mfc 440cn/465cn qui a cette function: mfc(fax) ->PC( a dossier ou voir et/ou effacier) -> imprimer.

(excuse moi, mais je ne parle pas beaucoup de francais!)
