This is a known issue,
Open the cover where the cartridge is located. Above the cartridge on the white plastic you wil notice three vertical slots. These are interlock slots. If you look at the door you will see projections that marry up to these slots.
The slot to the farthest left is the issue. There is a switch on a teeter totter that is suppose to return to the the up position. If you look into the slot you should see a white piece of plastic going across the opening horizontally.
Don't see it? Give the plastic case above the slot a smart whack with you open hand( easy now it doesn't take much). If the wihite plastic appears inside you're all set. close the cover and get back to work. If not you mght need to take the next step and remove the top cove to see if the tetter totter has disengaged from it's pedestal. Good luck. By the way if the probelm keeps comeing back you might try super glueing a washer onto the teeter totter to provide a little more .wieght

Check cover/cart error

I believe there are at least 3 switches that senses if the cover is closed. I aquired one of these and it was throwing this error. I also had the same just happen again and had to trouble shoot as I forgot what the issue was the first time as its been about 8 months. I found my issue to be one of thise sensor switches. Open the cover as if you were going to remove the toner cartridge. Above where the cartridge is the are those 3 switches that I mentioned. you wat the one on the left see the picture its the one with the arrow on a pink piece of paper. There is like a white lever in there it should be in the up postion when cover is open. Take a pen cap that has the shirt clip the cheap bic ones or take a tooth ick and use it to make shure that lever is in th up postion. If it was not in the up postion it should pop up easy. Now try clsing cover let the unit run its test and you should be good to go.53b97c7.jpg

Hi, please tell me how to install a new black ink cartridge into my epsonstylus D78 printer

Open the cover. Press the Ink/maint button (triangle shape on button) this moves the carriage to indicate empty cartridge. keep pressing until carriage moves to the ink replacement position. Open ink cartridge cover and remove the cart. Ensure you remove the yellow tape on new cart' before installing and be careful not to touch the chip on the cart'. Push new cart' in until it clicks. Close lid (ensure clicks down), close printer cover and press ink button again.

Please take a moment to rate this solution, thanks.

MFC 210C Ink Problems


did you watch the display after replacing the cart?
Very often the machine asks if you have changed the cart and demands an answer (1 for yes).

You can try to do an update of the firmware, too. Go to , choose your country and then your machine. Download a small update tool and run it.

If it aint getting better:
Do unplug from power outlet (even though you have done already) wait 10 Min. leave scanner cover open and take all carts out. Plugin to power again and leave scanner open. Wait uintil machine gives a warning signal. Reinsert carts and close cover: now watch the display and give always the answer YES(1).

I have that exact problem at work. There is a bump on the right side of the lid...and when you close the lid it presses on a lever. Check and see that the bump actually pushes that lever downwards. That's how the printer determines that it's closed.

Unplug machine from power outlet. take all carts out. leave cover open. wait 5 min. plug machine to power and close cover. machine will demand carts. reinsert carts and answer question given on display.

If you still have trouble this might be due to the generic carts which have not the right construction. use original carts.

My MFC-210C always says replace ink.

Try this: Unplug machine from power. Wait 5 min.  Open scanner cover and take the carts out of the holder. Close cover. Plug machine to power. Machine will cycle and demands the carts. Use all NEW carts: Insert carts as demanded and answer question shown on display.

Always print until machine STOPPS printing because of EMPTY cart. Change cart then and machine will print the rest of job!
Plz, never change carts when it says NEAR EMPTY: This will cause a lot of trouble ;-)

We have had the same problem. There are 3 recessed micro switches that are engaged by a flange beneath the top cover. Our problem was caused by one of these switches being jammed down.
Hope this helps.
