The Brother MFC-250C is a multifunction machine that works as a printer, copier, scanner, and fax machine. It is ideal for those who just need a basic printer for home or office use. It offers decent quality prints, but it prints a bit slow, with the first page of draft color and mono document out in 13.7sec. It uses separate inks with low page yields. So, if you’ve got one in your home or office, make sure to stock up on ink cartridges. And there’s no better place to get them than here at Carrot Ink. We carry compatible black and color ink cartridges in twin packs, so you always have spare cartridges on hand. Or if you’re a heavy printer user, you can always choose our Brother LC61 High-Yield Compatible 10-Pack Combo.

Frequently Asked Questions


What to do if the LCD displays ‘No Cartridge’ after installing a new ink cartridge on the Brother MFC-250c?

You need to check if the new ink cartridge is installed properly. If not, then reinstall it—make sure to put the cartridge in the correct slot and that it locks into place before you close the cartridge cover.


What to do if I put the new ink cartridge in the wrong slot?

Print quality is compromised if you put the wrong color ink cartridge in the slot. So, remove it and place it in its corresponding slot. Make sure to clean the print head several times before you resume printing.


Why does the ‘Cannot Detect’ error message appeared on the LCD display after installing a new ink cartridge?

The ‘Cannot Detect’ error message often appears if the ink cartridge is installed too quickly or if the newly installed ink cartridge is broken or damage.
