Re: brother MFC-215C leaking ink

Buy a new printer ....unless it is a dodgy refilled magenta ink that is leaking,  if you are indeed using genuine Brother Inks then it will need a purge unit which is too costly to repair

MFC-215C printer not printing

Hi, I had the same problem and found the answer from one website. Heres how you can fix it
1) Open the cover
2) Remove the empty cartridge
3) Close the cover without putting in the new cartridge
4) Open the cover and install the new cartridge
5) Close the cover and restart the printer (press power save to shut down and press it again to turn it on

It should go into cleaning and when you check the Ink Status monitor, it will detect that the ink is full.:) Hope this helps, it worked for me

DO run a firmware update afterwards (see brother homepage of your country).

Ensure that you are replacing the cartridge with a Brother LC41M ("M" denotes magenta) cartridge instead of replacing it with a "knockoff" (third-party equivalent) or refilling the cartridge. Some third-party inks -- found in many knockoffs and ink refill kits -- do not work well with their intended cartridges and/or print heads. I discovered this the hard way, and then verified it with representatives of HP, Canon and EPSON.

If you have tried two or more actual LC41M cartridges and still receive the Near Empty error message, your unit might need service. Contact Brother Customer Service for further troubleshooting -- see page i of the Users Manual. (Opening the Users Manual with this link requires a PDF viewer such as Acrobat Reader or Foxit Reader.)
