Brother mfc 3240c black won't print after refill
To solve the
# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the
bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.

installed at this point.

YOU are NOT SUPPOSED to "refill" the actual ink cartridges, but replace them with new ones. If you need to know how to replace this ink cartridge (I have this machine too) you just pop open the front rigth side panel and then pull the little plastic purple lever down in front of the YELLOW cartrdige which is labeled with a Y on the pull down cover in front of it, and pull out the old one to dispose of it, take the cap off the new one and push it in-the direction the arrow on the cartridge is facing until it clicks and the purple plastic piece locks it in, then shut the cover and the machine will do a "cleaning" and then you will be ready to print.

Problems with cartridges
Try hitting the button that says you did change cartridges. The ink level indicator might be off if you do, but that might fix your problems.

Displays "cannot clean" when installing new black cartridge.
I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy
paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print
button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it
will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I
have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this
way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps.
