Question about Brother MFC 210C All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Printer prints all except one color

My MFC-210C prints every color except Magenta. I've installed a new cartridge but still no magenta even after several print head cleanings and that several times but still no luck. I did spill some yellow ink inside the printer and some may have splashed in the trough where the platen and encoder film are but it looks clean. Can you please help me out here, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thank You.

Dear Sir/Madam,

In case you want 2 replace the printhead:
Unpower mfc. Disassemble the scanner. Remove cover.
Clockwise turn the gear wheels (on leftside )twice . Don't damage the round foil fixed at gearwheel. Its a disc!! Now you can push the head towards the gearwheels lefthand side. Pullup the printhead. Watch your fingers due 2 ink. Don't drain the machine with ink! The capillaries are fixed by a metal clamp and can be unfastened.

When reinstalling watch the belt and the positioning foil (encoder strip). Those have to be at right places: If you get an error 50 the encoder strip is not correctly positioned to the printhead.

Thanks
good luck

My brother mfc j220 canoot print magenta color although on the display the magenta is full i clean many times but when i test print i didnt see dotted magenta. what can i do?


It looks like the magenta print head nozzels are blocked.
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

I want to find out if my mfc 3420c still works. The printer gives the message, that it needs the colour "magenta". Still I want to print a piece of paper - but it just won't!! I have installed new drivers,...


Yes. It will not print without all the ink cartridges having ink. Even if all you want to print has not color(just black), if magenta is out, it will not print. Very frustrating.

It says Install Magenta. The machine is new, never used and has magenta installed.


simply remove magenta cartridge, and make sure there is no tape on the part that connects at bottom or rear. That might be all that's required, also, upon first usage, the printer will run through a cartridge check on main menu panel.

Wont print with all new ink cartridges


If the error message is only "magenta/cyan low", it doesn't cause any error. The low message stays after replacing ink cartridges if they're replaced too early (before they're indicated as actually empty), it doesn't cause the printer to not work.
However, some other problem might be faulty, or there might be another error message. Try emptying printer queue and print from Ink Management -> Menu/set (twice) to check wether the problem is with communication from pc or if the printer actually is unable to print.

MFC 210c problem with Magenta ink


I had a similar problem with my black ink. The printer had indicated that it was out of black ink. I didn't have one on hand, so, for more than a week I couldn't print anything, because if you are out of any one of the four ink cartridges, it won't print at all. That delay in replacing the black ink cartridge apparently was enough time for the printhead to dry out. Big Mistake! I contacted Brother's Tech Support and they suggested I run the cleaning cycle and try to print a test page. Still nothing printed. They had me run another cleaning cycle, and another, and another. Finally, after the fourth cleaning cycle, something started to show up on the paper. They had me clean it two more times, six in all, and it was back to normal. From now on, if it says one of the ink cartridges is empty, I change it yesterday. The major disadvantage of all of this, other than not being able to print for awhile, is that this procedure used up about 1/2 of a brand new black ink cartridge.

Brother mfc MFC-5440CN magenta issues


If you have used generic ink the head is clogged and cant be cleaned anymore.

Last chance is to use original brother ink which has cleaning fluids within the ink. Run the cleaning procedure twice and simply print 10 PAGES afterwards. Wait A DAY AND TRY TO PRINT IN MAG AGAIN:

If there will be no mag. the ph is definitley clogged and needs replacement.

Near empty Magenta


You have to press 1 (for Yes) when the display asks if you have changed the cart.

Take cart out and insert again. Watch display!
