    At first attempt I was able to print something then the blasted thing shut down again. Now even after waiting a time period it won't even power up everytime. Is there a reset of any kind? Unpluging it didn't work. you seemed to be on to something with the "power-save mode" idea, something heating up or over-load. I'm still asking for any help.
    Thanks, George

If you send a print from pc before the 2 minutes is over, does the printer complete the print before shutting down? the printer has somehow been forced into power-save mode. remove the power input for 15 minutes and then re-apply it...any change?

Brother mfc 640cw I changed the black ink and its telling me near empty ink and will not print,

Try this

Unplug printer from power. Wait a minute. Take all carts out. Plug machine to power. mfc demands carts. Reinsert carts (have a look if they all filled with ink!!). If asked press 2 (No change) despite you use a new cart press 1 Yes cart changed.

Should work!

Check that all, printhead and ink are seated and contacts are correct.

Power down the printer and allow for a complete power on and self test.

Error 1203 is an issue that occurs either when a cartridge is bad or the printer cartridge Slot is bad...

1 - try cleaning the copper contacts of the both carts and cart slot in the printer and try again..
2 - when error shows up, shut the printers power off; wait one minute and turn it back on press copy.

The solution offered last time has failed. The sign has reappeared "Ink system has failed. I have turned off the power for 10seconds, and turned off power, removed cartridges, turned on power...

There is a chance that there is something physically wrong with your printer. Maybe a gear is broken or came off, or maybe a pump or tube is clogged. But most of the time a cold reset will sold the ink system failure error. Here's the procedure for the cold reset:

1- Turn off power and unplug from power source.
2- Open right side of printer (looking at the front).
3- Disconect,by pulling gently, the flat ribbon cable off the main circuit board that is the smaller of the two.
4- Plug in power source and turn printer on. Wait till you hear no more movement from inside from unit booting up.
5- Press both cancel and power button at the same time.
6- Message on printer screen will be, "Enter Special Key Combo".
7- Push keys; Left-Ok-Right.
8- When printer screen changes, scan through and look for "System Menu" and push "Ok"
9- Scan agan and look for "Clean Derivative" and push "Ok". [WAIT FOR 1 MINUTE].
10- Scan agan and look for "Clean Firms" and push "Ok". [Again WAIT FOR 1 MINUTE]
11- Press "Cancel" 4 times
12- Turn off power and unplug from power source. [NOW WAIT FOR 2 MINUTES].
13- Reconect the flat ribbon cable by aligning and carefully pushing into the conector on the main circuit board.
14- Plug in power source,and turn on power.
15- When printer boots up, answer the questions on the printer screen for your area.
16- The printer will cycle the ink from the cartridges to the print head and back.

If this doesn't clear your error then there may be something broken inside your printer. If you still have warranty then I would have the unit replaced. If you don't have warranty then it might be cheaper to buy a new printer that has warranty.

Brother MFC440CN

Did you use generic ink carts? If yes ink has stained the led control. Try to clean it by help of a towel. In some cases this will help. If not, the led control needs replacing!
Another solution:
Did you answer the question given by printer when changing the cart?

You might take all carts out, unplug machine from power outlet. replug to power. wait until machine demands carts. Place cart in and answer question.

Take all carts out. Close cover. Unplug machine from power. Wait a minute. Plug in machine to power. Machine demands carts. Insert new (!) cart as demanded from machine. In case when asked push 1 for YES: cart changed.

Always print until machine stopps printing. Display says NO INK XY. After replacing the cart machine will print the rest data out of its memory.

NEVER change cart when machine says low ink (This is only a hint to buy a new cart!). At this point the cart has about one third of ink left!

First, wouldn't print black, now won't print magenta- all new cartridges!

Unplug machinepowercord. Open printer and take all carts out. Plug in power. Machine demands carts. Put new one in: Replace with original ink carts!. When asked push 1 (yes New cart). If you have used thirdparty carts, there could be a prob due to construticon or ink quality. In case there is no bk after 3x cleaning cycles anymore, the head is clogged: This happens because the filter in front of the nozzels is clogged by pigmented ink. DO USE ONLY DYE INK for all types of brother inkjet machines!!!

Printer won't work

Did you use original carts? In case your carts are third party ones, this is a common problem due to diffrent construction of the carts. Disconnect mfc from power (unplug!). Open cover, take carts out. Wait two minutes. Reconnect (plug in) mfc to power. mfc demands carts. Place the carts right back. mfc should start cleaning. In case you are asked if carts are replaced push yes (1). Set date and hour again (and faxnr. etc)...
