I have a brother intellifax 1840c (which is great, by the way). I need to change the ink cartridge & have no idea how to get into it. Is there a latch or button to help open it? Please help.


1 Close the document support and the document tray.

2 Lift the top cover to the open position until it locks securely into
place. If one or more ink cartridges are empty, for example Black, the
LCD shows Ink Empty Black and Open Cover.

3 Pull the ink cartridge hook toward you and remove the ink
cartridge for the color shown on the LCD.


You can find the procedure on changing the ink cartridges in the user manual, page 12-25.

Do i need an ink cartridge for the fax machine to work and setup


Some brands of fax machines and all-in-one printer/scanner/fax/copiers need the ink cartridge to be present and have some ink in it to perform functions which don't actually require ink.

My dad bought a Brother all-in-one, and he is unable to scan or send faxes unless he replaces an empty ink cartridge first. If you have a Brother fax machine, I'd suggest returning it and buying a different brand. They waste ink on unnecessary cleaning procedures and force you to buy more for stuff that doesn't need ink.

You cannot override the message, yellow may have ink in it, but it's probably dried up inside.

Brother 1840c -problems after changing cartridges


If you are using new cartridges, the problem is in the sensors. The ink sensors get dirty and malfunction. Remove the ink cartridges and thoroughly clean all the surfaces, Allow to completely dry and replace the cartridges. This should cure your problem.
p.s. I usually use alcohol on a Q-Tip to clean

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.

I don't use the color printing yet the color cartridges are empty


It's all a scam. I have the same problem and I called Brother and they told me that the machine uses color ink to clean itself. It costs more to replace these color cartridges then to buy a new one, which is what I'm going to do. Buy a black and white from a different company. It's all a scam to get you to spend money on their color ink that you don't use.

My brother fax machine is indicating that two color cartridges are almost empty, however i never print anything and color, and basically everything is black. so how can they be almost empty?


Three reasons -

If your print driver is set to color. It will use all the colors to make black.

Because the machine is ink jet it needs to clean the print head to stop it from drying out. It will use color ink to flush the print head every two days.

When ever in receives a fax it will use some color when printing a fax, particularly Cyan.

If you only wish to print or receive faxes in black there is now a version of Brother fax that only uses black ink and has no color inks. However it may not be available in your region. If you try and cheat the system you will only kill your print head.
