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

3 Answers

Only printing black and cyan

I just bought 8 new Brother brand cartridges for my MFC-210c, so I am $100 in the hole if I cannot repair this printer. I have been using those cheap G&G brand cartridges, which I feel may be part of the problem. I am printing only black and cyan. I emailed Brother with my problem (excluding the fact that I have not been using Brother ink cartridges), and received a prompt response. I followed the instructions exactly. I took out the cartridges and put them back in the printer, and checked to make sure the cartridges were properly seated, and then I used the menu to go through the head cleaning process. I cleaned the heads about a dozen times. Still, only the black and cyan print. The magenta and yellow are not printing. What do I need to do to save this printer?

If you have used third party carts before you can't repair this problem due to the fact that the filter inside the printhead is clogged with particles. There is no chance to clean the filter. Sorry. Do use only dye ink. Pigmented ink is the printhead killer for brother printers!

I read several forums on your paticular printer and several of the people on there had problems with one to two colors. Some of them used cleaningprogramm to try and fix their problem but just wased ink. I will give you the link to this forum so you can take a look but it doesn't look to positive. Good Luck!

Unable to clean means the waste ink is full, about 1 hour labor and $20.00 part. With the new machines running about $100.00 it's probably not worth the repair.
