You must run a clean cycle after installing a new cartridge, so your printer will detect the new cartridge..

Hope that helps.........

Try removing the colored cartridge and see if it will print. Also on your print settings try to see if you can select print using black only. next look at the black cartridge and see if ink is flowing or if there are any blots or clots that would stop the ink.

How do I clean my Brother MFC 210C. I've done it before ont eh computer, but can't find where to do it this time.


Press the Ink or Ink Management key on the control panel of the machine. Press the up or down navigation key to select TEST PRINT and press Menu/Set or Set. Press the up or down navigation key to select PRINT QUALITY and press Menu/Set or Set. Press Color (Colour) Start. The machine begins printing the Print Quality Test Sheet. By reviewing this Test Sheet, you can determine if the print quality needs improvement. The display will then ask you if the print quality is OK for black and three colors. Press 2 (NO) for black or three colors with the problem.

The display will then show START CLEANING? 1.YES 2. NO. Press 1 (YES) and the machine will start cleaning the color ink cartridges.

How to improve print quality
Cleaning the print head
To ensure good print quality, the MFC will regularly clean the print
head. You can start the cleaning process manually if needed.
Clean the print head and ink cartridges if you get a horizontal line in
the text or graphics on your printed pages. You can clean Black only
or three colors at a time (Cyan/Yellow/Magenta), or all four colors at
once.
Cleaning the print head consumes ink. Cleaning too often uses ink
unnecessarily.
Caution
Do NOT touch the print head. Touching the print head may cause
permanent damage and may void the print head’s warranty.
1 Press Ink.
2 Press or to select Cleaning.
Press Menu/Set.
3 Press or to select Black, Color or All.
Press Menu/Set.
The MFC will clean the print head. When cleaning is finished,
the MFC will go back to standby mode automatically.
If you clean the print head at least five times and the print has
not improved, call Brother Customer Service (see Brother
numbers on page i).

Problem with my Brother MFC 210C Printer won't print the colors.


Check your ink cartridge if they are properly installed.

Check your print settings.

Make sure your ink cartridge are not empty.

Replace your ink with the original Brother ink cartridge.

Color not printing


If you are making copies or sending/receiving faxes Press Black Start or Color Start. Make sure your ink cartridges are fresh. Cartridges remain fresh for up to two years if kept in their original packaging, after that the ink may become clogged. Cartridge expiration dates are printed on the package.

Brother 210C One colour cartridge empty, want to print a black and white fax


Yes, if you dont need the color anymore in future:

You can cheat with empty c/y/m carts by sticking some dark but very thin adhesive tape around the nose (see picture).

After that the printer logic expects the c/y/m carts always as full.

But you cant print any colors within the next 2 weeks anymore because air will dry out the print head (and destroy the color nozzels)!

See brother homepage for instructions on how to print in grayscale only!
