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 ;-)

When it comes time to replace my ink cartridges on my Brother MFC-210C, do I have to replace the color cartridges too, or can I just replace the black ink cartridge?


Its depending on the Ink Level. You will be able to see the Ink level if you use this with your Computer/Laptop. It should have the installed Printer Management Software. It will show you.

How can i clean my mfc 210c printer head maually


The majority of the printer parts like take up rollers and gears can be cleaned using Rubbing (IsopropylAlcohol or aka Surgical Spirit in the UK this will remove ost of the finger grease that can build up over time.

I wouldn't however suggest that you attempt to manually clean the print heads as they can easily be damaged and destroy the printer replacement heads can be as much as a new printer and difficult to change.

I recommend using the deep clean function found in the printer driver maintenance tab, you might have to run it 3 times at least if you don't use your printer very often.

Tip is to always leave enough ink in the cartridges to prevent the heads from drying out, this is why most manufactures tell you to replace ink when there is about 5% left in them to prevent this happening

Problem with my Brother MFC 210C Printer won't print the colors.


Check your ink cartridge if they are properly installed.

Check your print settings.

Make sure your ink cartridge are not empty.

Replace your ink with the original Brother ink cartridge.

Just want to SCAN, with image going to computer


machine always refuses ANY function if a color is empty.

You can cheat the machine by sticking some thin black adhesive tape around the cart nose (looking from above onto the cartholder within the printer it is the right hand side of the cart).

This signals the machine a full cart.

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.

Won't stop cleaning and using up all ink in cartridg


I found a solution at another forum. I have the same printer with the same problem. What you need to do is put some electrical tape on the colour cartridges to stop the printer from sensing the ink level. I put tape on the clear plastic ridge on the back end of the cartridge and this allowed me to print from the black ink cartridge even though the colour ones were empty. I used black tape which i think would work best.

I am also going to leave the printer off until i need it so that it doesn't waste the ink by doing random cleaning at all times of the day.
