Question about Brother IntelliFAX 1840C Plain Paper Inkjet Fax

1 Answer

Ink Empty Management

The machine is screaming that each toner in turn wants changing - however we do not use the colours at all - they do not appear empty when I take them out and look at them
I need to override and just use black. Can the colour print facility be switched off?
Switching off and on, taking the toners out, tapping and putting them back does not work. Last time we spent a fortune changing to new ones when they are not used
aggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!

    It's horrible. We NEVER use the color inks yet they seem to keep draining out and then the machine refuses to print ANYTHING at all until you change the specific color cart.



    I'm thinking of dumping this for a black only fax machine.

No, it's the nature of the beast. All carts must have a certain level of ink.

I have a samsuns SF515 fax machine after changing the toner cartridge the message still appears "toner Empty" I have tried several new cartridges with the same issue.


if you have changed the drum/toner unit then the machine should have a fuse on top of the drum unit.I have come across some cartridges that don't have them on the unit.The fuse resets the fax so that it knows there is a new unit installed.If that does work then clear the machines memory using the control panel

How do I change the toner?


The Fax-2480c does not use toner cartridges.
This is an inkjet and so uses ink cartridges.

There are 4 cartridges, black, yellow, cyan (blue) and magenta (red). If any of these cartridges are empty, you need replace them.

This machine takes LC-51 cartridges.
You're probably out of warranty so jsut get refills... it's cheaper

Brother IntelliFAX 1840C says to change yell even though its full


Your machine did not recognize the new cartridge. Remove the yellow, count to 10 then replace it. The machine will ask "did you change the color yellow?" Select yes by dialing "1" - if after the cleaning cycle "near empty" still appears, you need to contact Brother for repairs. You can safely use the machine until "INK EMPTY" appears.

Light fax


This could be a couple of different things. The first is that you are running out of ink or toner. Or you could have your toner save turned on. You can conserve toner using this feature.
When you set Toner Save to On, print
appears lighter. The default setting is Off.
1 Press Menu/Set, 1, 6, 1.
2 Press ▲ or ▼ to select On (or Off).
Press Menu/Set.
3 Press Stop/Exit.

Low toner message


sounds like you have a bent toner sensor. turn the machine off and take the toner out and place on the side

what you could try to do is grab a piece of paper fold it in 4 like so
__ __
|__|__| __
|__|__| then rip one piece like so |__|

then rip one piece off and fold that 5 times over it self.

look into where the toner goes in the middle you will see a silver bracket with a black round piece of plastic on the top left conner you need to put that piece of paper under that coner where the black circle is and turn the machine back on then put the toner in.

if this does not work you need a tech to look at it

this sounds trivial but when you changed the toner did you follow the instructions that were included in the box?

Brother machines have to be doen a certain way or the page count on the cartrigde will not reset and will still say low/empty etc


Hope this helps

Pagepro printer toner empty problem


1. It tries to pump toner into a reservoir. If it doesn't activate a full sensor for the reservoir, it shows toner low. 2. Take the toner out and shake it hard about 10 times, this will make any settled toner loose, and should solve this. The problem is normally caused by old toner (your supplier might have had it on their shelf for a year or two).
