Copier problem

I had essentially the same problem. Do this:

Unplug the printer, and leave it so for ten to fifteen seconds. Then replug.

After it powers up again, look at the message display. If it's cleaning the heads, you're in clover. Otherwise, it may give you some other intelligence that could help.

Ink empty cyan

Have you replaced the cartridge containing the cyan color in your printer?

You can deplete a single color. But if you think it is a false error message, I would try cleaning loose ink from the tray and cartridge itself. Especially on the contact areas. Brother printers are inexpensive and work well for small jobs, but ultimately jam, clog, and sometimes even break when run hard or doing large volumes.

Brother MFC-3360C cyan ink cartridge replace ment

On the front of the cartridge there is a sight tube for the ink, the fax shines a light through this tube to detect the ink.
I wraped a piece of paper around the tube to block the light beam on all the cartridges.
I dont need a processer to tell me if the machine is out of ink, I can work thay out when it stops printing!!
Now tell me you are out of ink you peice of electronic ****.

Brother MFC 210C series ink replaced

The brother machines require ink in all the cartridges as it is always flushing ink through the heads to "clean" it. This means you must have ink in all cartridges at all times unfortunately or the brother will not work. Even if you could somehow get it to work it could damage your printhead anyway.

Good Luck
Please rate my advice, good or bad.

Help with Cartridges

you can cheat if you like:
stick some tape around the "nose" of the colored ones. The part of the printhead which uses the C/Y/M might be in disorder because of lacking ink after some time!
