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

1 Answer

Printer won't power on

I have a Brother MFC 210c printer that has not been turned on for quite some time due to lack of ink. Today I tried to install the software but the machine will not power on. I've checked to see if the new ink cartridge is correctly and tightly inserted. It is. I've also tried using a seperate outlet. This makes no difference. Please tell me you have an answer to my problem. Thank you in advance for your help. Deb Jones

Re: Printer won't power on

Do any power indicators come on? If not, then check all power connections- if all is OK here, you might have a power supply problem, which, on most printers is internal to the printer. Repair would require tech savvy. If you do have a lit power indicator, and no activity otherwise, such likely indicates an error condition. If indeed printer has set unused for a substantial period of time, ink might've dried inside the printhead(s, as it sounds like this uses separate ink tanks/printhead(s). What repair might be possible beyond this, I don't know.

When it comes time to replace my ink cartridges on my Brother MFC-210C, do I have to replace the color cartridges too, or can I just replace the black ink cartridge?

Its depending on the Ink Level. You will be able to see the Ink level if you use this with your Computer/Laptop. It should have the installed Printer Management Software. It will show you.

Black ink won't print,just the color ink prints. It's a Brother MFC-3240C thanks in advance

You must run a clean cycle after installing a new cartridge.
Try running a clean cycle and see if that relieves the problem. I just had the same problem on a MFC 210C and called Brother. That is what they had me do and now it is working fine.

Brother MFC-210C

Do you use generic ink carts?

Please insert an original brother BK cart. In case the printhead is OK the machine should work again. If there is still trouble the printhead might be clogged and cant be fixed anymore due to wrong chemical additives within the generic ink!

When inserted the original brother ink cart run the powerpurge:
press menue then start b/w (blue button) then foutimes arrow-up button. Machine is within the maintanance mode. press 7 then 6 then 3. Display shows PowerP_All. Press start b/w (blue button). Machine runs power cleaning. Press 9 then 9  to leave the maintanance mode. Print a test print sheet.
