I have a brother MFC215c printer, and it continues to show on SCD unable to print. Nothing in the manual is helping


This is some times when it says unable print it some thing sticking so the heads cant move easy.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Printer is Brother MFC215C. Cyan colour not coming



  1. Press Ink or Ink Management key on the control panel of the machine.

  2. Press 1 to choose 1.CLEANING.

  3. Press the up or down navigation key to choose the Black, Color or All you want to clean, and then press Menu/Set or Set.


The machine will clean the print head automatically. When cleaning is finished, the machine will go back online automatically.

Note If you clean the print head at least five times and the print has not improved, please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us".

Printer is saying unable to clean model mfc215c


If you look at the Brother website, you will find a trouble shooting guide for your machine.

In the guide, for the error you quote Brothers guidance is to check for a stuck piece paper, however it also states that if the print head is hard over to one side (righthand side if memory serves me correct), then to contact Brother. If you do so, Brother will tell you it needs to be serviced by a Brother agent, which will likely cost you more than a new one !

If it isnt a stuck peice of paper, the problem is due to the fact that Brother machines excessively self-clean. Each time they self-clean a small amount of ink is dumped in to a holding tank/sponge. When a predefined number of self-clean operations have been performed, the machine refuses to print and gives the error message you have stated. Brother state that the tank/sponge must be replaced before the counter is reset.

However, there is a way of reseting the self-clean counter yourself - if you Google your model number and the error code soemwhere in the results you'll find how to do it. The only risk of doing this without changing the tank/sponge is that it will eventually overflow and leak out the bottom, but I did my Brother all in one some time ago and have had no problems yet.

Brother mfc215c cartridge problem


Sorry to hear that. Brother's have alot of problems with this sort of thing. Just so you know, I even called Brother and they said you're model printer didn't exist. What a joke. I said if it doesn't exist then how come I'm looking at a manual on my screen as we speak for that model printer that I downloaded from their site. They still told me it doesn't exist. I said then maybe we're not really talking on the phone! Again, sorry about the printer. If you have any other problems or just need advice feel free to ask. That's why I'm here. Just for you! How about giving me a 4 fix ya rating for old time sake? Give a shout if you need anything.

Brother mfc-215c unable to clean?


@artkoy:

There is no Error 10 within the maintenance of the printer!
An error starting with 10 (and two more digits) belongs to the communication device (fax).

Plz check again what two digit error you have and post again.

@peter:

you need a new waist ink absorber. plz check the forum for unable to clean or error 46. Its explained many times.
