  • Overview

    The Brother 240C series of printers are multi-purpose inkjet printers that are used at home or in the business world. Inexpensive to buy and to maintain, the Brother series of printers can handle anything you can throw at them: faxes, printing address labels, printing postcards, or even pictures. Amid all of this printing, the need arises for a new ink cartridge. Changing the ink cartridge on a Brother 240C printer is not a difficult task and you will be back to printing in no time.

    • Step 1

      Purchase the correct ink cartridge for the Brother 240C series printer. Open the top cover which exposes the ink cartridges. The printer will sense the door ajar and move the ink cartridges to the discharge area.
    • Step 2

      Unsnap the cartridge you are replacing from the carrying cradle and discard it or mail it back to the manufacturer to be recycled. Open up your new ink cartridge and remove it from the foil wrapper. There is a piece of clear plastic tape on the bottom of the cartridge.


    • Step 3

      Remove the tape and insert the cartridge into the appropriate carrying cradle in the printer.
    • Step 4

      Close the lid and let the printer perform a self check. Print a test page and follow the on screen instructions to perfect your printing picture.
    • Skill: Easy

    • Tip: Refilling your ink cartridges can save you a bundle of money, especially if you do alot of color printing. You can find appropriate refill kits for the Brother series printers at a variety of retailers across the country.
