Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.
Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage.
Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.
Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now
If that does not work then follow the next step.
Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.
Obviously there is nothing wrong with the printer, because you are able to print from the Internet.
Before attempting to print from word, excel etc, make sure you have the correct printer selected (check it through FILE MENU -> PRINT ->PROPERTIES) Do a print test by typing just couple of words -may be in different color- Best of luck luciana44
I have a Windows Vista laptop an am trying to install aBrothers MF 210C.
The computer recognizes the printer but I can not print a test page. What mode
am I supposed to be in and how do I program the printer to receive from the laptop?
if your brother machine is within warranty, give the tech support a call. if not,replace the black cartridge with a new one. it may be a defective cartridge that you have or if you are using refilled cartridges, it will also give the same problem
