Brother MFC-210C Firmware Problem

Hey everyone. i bought a Brother MFC-210C, i was experiencing a power cycle problem so i decided to do a firmware update. Durning the update everything was going fine until i got an error stating that the "Stop botton was pushed" and the communication link was broken. I did not pushed the stop botton but it said that it was which was strange. But on the printer lcd, it showed that the update in pregress even though the firmware tool was closed on my system. After leaving the printer that way for about 15minutes i decided to unplug the printer due to the fact that the power key nor any other was responding. When i turn the printer back on i got a ring and there are only blocks on the printer lcd along with the 4 lights for the copier, scanner, memory cards etc on. When i attempted to reconnect the printer, i'm unable to install the drivers and i'm bring prompt for drivers for a "USB device" another "USB Device" and a "BrotherBHL2-Maintenance" drivers. I'm lost and don't know what to do. I guess that the firmware had been damaged so the printer cannot operate properly. i've tried several web searches and without any success in solving this problem. Has anyway sucessfully overcome thing problem? Anyway suggestions will be accepted.

I would try re-running the firmware installation if you haven't. Last time I had a firmware problem like this I left the machine unplugged for a hour or two came back and re-tried it and the machine took the upgrade fine the second time.

I recently upgraded to a Brother IntelliFAX 12370e, from a Brother MFC-210C. My fax won't accept anything coming in while on the internet. Is there a way to shut off the internet system? I would rather use my fax machine then the printer.

Thanks for any help & advise.

If you are certain that you have removed all paper, try power-cycling your printer. Remove power cord and wait a minute or two then plug back in.

MFC does not recognise the new black ink cartridge.


Disconnect power supply and USB lead (leave disconnected for 10 min). Repeat this for each colour that is not working and hey presto the LCD readout will revert to normal and you will be able to print again. Happy Christmas! Hope this works for you (worked for me)

MFC 210C Ink Problems


Steve,

did you watch the display after replacing the cart?
Very often the machine asks if you have changed the cart and demands an answer (1 for yes).

You can try to do an update of the firmware, too. Go to www.brother.com , choose your country and then your machine. Download a small update tool and run it.

If it aint getting better:
Do unplug from power outlet (even though you have done already) wait 10 Min. leave scanner cover open and take all carts out. Plugin to power again and leave scanner open. Wait uintil machine gives a warning signal. Reinsert carts and close cover: now watch the display and give always the answer YES(1).
