I wonder if the problem might just be the cartridge is not up to the standard of the sharp ones?

Ink is not visible on paper


First NEVER raise the tanks of a CISS above the height of the printer otherwise all that is going to happen is that the ink will syphon out and end up getting everywhere.

As you have not used the printer in a long time there wil be dried ink in the print heads 3x head cleaning is nowhere near good enough to clear the blockages.

One thing I would do as you have a set of OEM carts is the following presuming you have the equipment.

Drill a small hole in the top of each cart and extract as much ink as ps=ossible with a syringe (you can put it in the ciss ink tanks) and replace with head cleaning solution. Reseal the ink carts (if clean selotape will do) insert carts and do 5x head clean, leave 24hrs and do 5x head clean again. This will allow the head cleaning solution to get right insine of the print head, soften the dried ink and then flush it through..

A lot of messing about I know but you've just shelled out a few bob for a CISS so it's worth it.

NB

Make sure you keep the CISS carts above the tanks whilst outside of the printer.

DCP 117C Brother ink jet printer: Although ink cartridge is filled, is showing black nearly empty error message. No black is getting through on test printing after head cleaning procedure.


two diffrent errors:

1. near empty. I guess your cart is at full level.: Take cart out. unplug dcp from power. leave scanner open. replug to power. machine will come up and demanding cart. insert cart. close cover. answer display if its changed!

2. press menu then start bk-copy then four times arrow up. machine will be in maintenance mode. press by help of arrow-up and set: 7 (set) 6 (set) 3 (set) start bk-copy. machine will do a power purge cleaning. when finished press 9 (set) 9 to leave maintenance mode. run a test print and set date/time again!

Magenta Near Empty??


This is only a reminder! The cart will show "empty" when it is really empty. You can print on until the printer stopps because of empty cart (and prints on when it is replaced).
Take the new on out and put it in again. answer display question with "1" (Yes, cart changed). "Near empty" Message will disappear.

Brother MFC 210C All-in-One Ink Cartridges


near empty message is a reminder: plz buy a new cart (but do NOT change until EMPTY). You still can print.

the ink left in an empty cart keeps the system alive when some ink is neede for the automatic cleaning cycle.
If you print until this cart is really empty air will get into the tubes and ph. That leads to faulty printings.
brother had made sure that the amount of printable ink can be consumed. The rest is for service.

unplug maqchine from power. take all carts out. wait 5 minutes. connect machine to power. insert carts as demanded. give the right answer if machine asks if the carts are changed. machine will do some cleaning.

do you use generic ink? in that case you might have clogged the printhead with wrong ink. The ph cant be cleaned anymore.

nevertheless try this (carts should be nearly full!):
press menue then start mono (blue copy) then fourtimes arrow up. machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4. Machine will display init_all. press start mono. machine will refill tubes and
ph with fresh ink and do some cleaning. after that press 7 then 6 then 3 and start mono. machine will do a powerpurge.
press zero then 9 to do a quality test print. If it cant do the job leave maintenance by pressing 9 then 9. do the test print manually by pressing ink etc.

If you still do not see any colors the ph is clogged and cant be fixed anymore. It has to be replaced.

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 ;-)

First, wouldn't print black, now won't print magenta- all new cartridges!


Unplug machinepowercord. Open printer and take all carts out. Plug in power. Machine demands carts. Put new one in: Replace with original ink carts!. When asked push 1 (yes New cart). If you have used thirdparty carts, there could be a prob due to construticon or ink quality. In case there is no bk after 3x cleaning cycles anymore, the head is clogged: This happens because the filter in front of the nozzels is clogged by pigmented ink. DO USE ONLY DYE INK for all types of brother inkjet machines!!!

Near empty yellow


Do print until the message EMPTY (Printer stopps printing). DO NOT refill or change cart when message is shown: NEAR EMPTY! You fool the printers logic. Machine counts down the rest of the ink in the cart. When you refill at that moment the counter is disoriented! To clear the counter: Unplug powercord. Take carts out. Wait 3 min. Plug in power. Machine demands carts. Do use carts at full level (refill before you put them in). Works normal afterwards.
