Question about Brother Multi-Function Center® MFC-215C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer refuses to clean.

I bought all my inks, and they had all been full. Apparently, i could not find my user's guide which was why im in quite a fix here. Anyway, When i bought my new ink and placed it in. After closing the cover, I waited 4 minutes for its cleaning to end. They gave me an error message "Unable to clean See troubleshooting and routine maintenence chapter in User's Guide " Because i lost my manual, there is no way i could read it. I am desperate for help!

Unable to clean see troubleshooting and routine maintenace chapter in user guide. Do not have user guide to hand.

Unable to clean means the ink absorber box is full. You will need a shop to replace the waste ink absorber box and then reset the waste counter in service mode.

My HP 890C printer just refuses to print.

Your ink system is clogged. There is no way to clean it out as the caustic ink has eaten away the pump.

Waste in tank

If you drop the cover the machine will send the cartridge holder across to the far side of the printer

At that point switch the printer off and by using a torch you will see a heap of nearly solid ink which has been deposited by the cleaning blades into a trough where the ink cartridge normally sits.

Pair of surgical gloves and a small lolly stick or wooden spatula normally does the trick

Blank Ink not pumping to print head

Turn off the device after removing the printhead After removing the printhead, turn off the device, wait about 20 seconds, and turn it on again without the printhead installed. After it has restarted, reinsert the printhead.

it will go through this long routine of perhaps 20 min or so. after its compleate it should print great.

Black Ink won't print

Try cleaning the printheads:

On the control panel press Setup>Select Tools>Select Clean Printhead

If that doesn't work, try manual cleaning the printhead contacts. This begins on page 147 of the User Guide.
