If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to

Hi my printer is a mfc 240c and i changed all the ink cartidges but everytime i try to print or copy anything it stays printing blank pages so what can i do to fix it


You'll have to run the cleaning mode a few times,
to do so you'll have to get into Maintenance Mode.

To do this:
Press MENU then * then 2 then 8 then 6 then 4
This takes some practice and you have to press them all within a few seconds.
If the machine doesn't say MAINTENANCE when you do it press STOP/EXIT and try again.

When in Maintenance Mode:
Press 7 then 6, then press 3, then press BLACK START
It will say Cleaning - this will take some time when it's done it will go back to MAINTENANCE

After it's completed try 0 then 9, this will print out a small Print Quality test page
it should have several rows of each color (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black)
if they still don't look right then run the cleaning mode again and then print another quality page.

Continue to do this until the quality is back to normal,
when you're done to exit maintenance mode press 9 then 9 to return to normal operation.

note: this cleaning mode uses up a fair amount of ink, use sparingly

note: maintenance mode is for brother technicians and has some codes that can damage your machine, only use the codes I've explained in this solution


If this doesn't resolve your issue you may need a replacement print head,
this is an expensive fix if the machine is no longer under warranty.
If it is under warranty contact Brother and they will arrange a meeting with a local technician to repair it for you.

Black is not working in my brother mfc-240c printer


did you use genunie brother black ink cartridge?

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Cartridges. !!!!!!!!

These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

I located a page on http://www.fixyourownprinter.com forum, which had plenty of details about similar issues.

Try the forum, there are alot of issues like yours.

If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Brother mfc-240c


The digital display on the printer will tell you which color is low and when it needs to be replaced, either black, magenta, cyan, or yellow.

Cannot print blue/green colors.


I think your cartridge is defective, you need to replace a new cartridge.

MFC-240C NOT PRINTING


I just fixed my 240c by taping over the sensor inspection window on each cartridge, I used the same color tape as the cartridge, maybe blackwould work on all four but I had the colored tape so that's what I used. Works Like a charm I guess till the ink actually runs out.

you have to change the cyan (blue) color, too. Its empty ;-)

The machine runs a cleaning circle which always consumes some amount of ink of ALL colors.

MFC-240C colr problem


No. Just buy original carts and install them. Run the manual cleaning procedure twice. Wait overnight and repeat the manual cleaning again. Should work. (..and give the compatible ones a dump)
