Re: Brothers MFC 210c ink tray needed has pin hole in it...

So if you found out that there is a pin hole in the foil, you have opened the printer already yet: I wont explain how to open cover to get to the ink tray. Wear 1# aid handshoes!!! Loose the capillaries carefully at the ink tray.(Fingernail under the capillaries; Do NOT strech the caps!!!) Clean the tray under warm water. Let the water run into the pins where normaly the carts let the ink thru. Do that until it looks brand new. Shake tray well to get the water out. Turn around to see the bottom (foil). Use some good glue to fix the pin hole. Wait a few minutes. Do this a second time. While waiting that the glue is dry clean bottom of printer with some papertowels. After glue is dry, use some water to test if the tray is ok. If so carefully stick the capilaries onto it again. Reinsert tray. Watch the white connection cablewires! Fasten cover

Can my brothers printer work only on black ink (MFC 465 CN)

I am afraid you cannot print if (any) one of the cartridges is empty. Here is a screen capture from the properties of my MFC. At the bottom of the picture it says in French : Le MFC arrêtera l'impression Couleur/échelle de gris lorsqu'une ou plus des cartouches d'encre sera vide.

What it say in English is as follows: The MFC will stop printing in Color/Gray scale when one or more of the ink cartidges is empty.


Open the properties of the MFC. Under "Advanced" Tab Click the Printing Defaults at the bottom left. At the bottom of the window that pops up you will see the information that I translated for You.

How To Refill?

Harry, you can use every DYE ink for brother printers. DO NOT use pigmented ink due to clogged filters inside the printhead!!!! The carts for mfc210 are filled with 20ml for BK and 11ml for C/Y/M. I use to refill 20ml only ink for bk and 10ml ink + 1ml printhead cleaner for C/Y/M. See here how to do that (LC900 refill): Refillen (Simply drill a hole into the brother brandname and leave it open!) I use a 20ml syringe and 3 12(10+2)ml syringes from the drugstore (ask your doc! It may be cheaper ;-)

Brother problem

Did you use third party ink? If the ink is pigmented the filter in front of the printnozzels is clogged and cant be cleaned any more. What you can try is to buy a brand new original brother ink cart and do the cleaning 3 times. After that do a testsheet printing. In case its OK, your lucky and it was a problem of the cart. If you cant see any blocks (with the original ink used!!!) the printhead is crashed and has to be replaced (BTW: Its cheaper to buy a new mfc)! Do use only dye ink for brother printers!!!
