Brother 4F Access the internal maintenance mode by pressing the Menu/Set button, then press * 2 8 6 4 within 2 seconds. This should put you in the maintenance mode menu. Enter 80, then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key. You'll find an entry listed as purge count. If number is over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.
This will reset the purge count value. Then the printer will restart, hopefully without the annoying cannot clean message. All I ask is 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.

Mine has started giving me the "install ink cartridge" message after a year or so. I squirted some freon-based solvent on the little sensor board that the ink cartridges slide into, and it has resumed working. You can see this little sensor board inside the ink-cartridge "garage"; it's the horizontal printed-circuir board with the 4 black sensors on it. Try a blast of air before you try the liquid solvent; I think these little sensors just get paper dust or ink spray on them and stop sensing the cartidge insertion...
Unfurtunately you didnt tell us what pc system you run: Is it XP, Win2k or Vista?
The latter one wont be able to connect to your pc. For the mfc 210c are only drivers for xp and win 2k, 98se avaiable.
You need another (newer) mfc (mfc240 or 235) if you run vista.
Anyway, if you run xp, download the aggrssive usb driver remover from the brother homepage and delete the drivers installed.
After a restart of the pc do have the mfc DISconnect from usb port (which must be one of the pc: NO hub!). Insert install disc and wait until pc software demands the connection to mfc. Connect now to pc usb. Let the software finish the installation. This should work for xp and win 2k/98se.
