Brother MFC-240C Error 30/50

I have this same problem but no local service center.

Can you explain how to repair this cable connection?? I can't figure out how to get the cover off the area where the print head is!@#$%^&*

If I can't fix it myself, it will unfortunately be headed for the land fill! :(

The problem with this machine is that you need to take off the top tilting cover, then remove several screws to take off the lower top cover. The print head is then visible. If you don't have experience, I wouldn't recommend it. You can ship it to me if you like. We are a Brother service center for 18 years. I'm in CT.

Cannot connect iphone using bluetooth to mfc990cw

As far as I know, the MFC-240C does not have neither bluetooth or wifi capabilities, so that may explain why you can't connect to it using your IPhone.

I had a MFC240C few years ago and I'm pretty sure it lacks that functionality.,

If you have any other question please let me know though

Is the brother mfc240c connectable from my laptop

Yes, depending on the operating system you're using, you should be able to connect the MFC-240C to your laptop. Just go to the Brother website and download the drivers for your operating system (you'll also need a USB cable):

I have a MFC-240C printer/fax, and I am not sure how to connect it to my computer. I am not even sure if it does connect to my computer! Can someone explain to me how to connect the printer to my PC?


The Printer has to be connected on the port of your computer which is available behind your PC Cabinet.

I have pasted a link for manual which will guide you connect and load drivers and software of your printer.

It is very easy to connect and get started, so do not worry.
