What do you like most about the Brother MFC-290C? Is it the fast print speeds of up to 30ppm black and 25ppm color? Or is it because it allows unattended fax, copy and scan with its 15-page auto document feeder? Or maybe its 4-ink cartridge system that allows you to replace only the cartridge that needs replacement? Whatever the reason, the MFC-290C is sure a good choice. So, if it starts running low on ink, equip it with only the best ink cartridge there is. Inkjets is your reliable online source of high-quality compatible Brother ink cartridges and printer supplies. Choose from our twin packs and combo packs, such as the Brother LC61 Compatible High-Yield 10-Piece Combo Pack. Feel free to contact us if you need any assistance.

Frequently Asked Questions

The 'B&W Print Only' error message suddenly appears on my Brother MFC-290C LCD. What does it mean?

The 'B&W Print Only' error message often indicates that one or more of the color ink cartridges are empty. Replace the empty ink cartridge soon.

What to do when the 'Cannot Detect' error message appears on the LCD?

The 'Cannot Detect' error message indicates either you installed the cartridge too quickly and the printer did not detect it or you installed the cartridge incorrectly. Remove the new ink cartridge from the printer and reinstall it slowly and properly until it locks into place.

I only need a single ink cartridge. Will you sell the Brother LC61BK Compatible Black Ink Cartridge individually?

As of now, we only sell the Brother LC61BK Compatible Black Ink Cartridge in twin pack. But you can always contact our Customer Service Department regarding your concern.
