Question about Brother MFC 210C All-In-One InkJet Printer
The black nozzle is clogged. How do I go about clearing it??
Did you use generic ink? The generic ink has the wrong ink filled in which destroys the ph!
brother printers must be run with dye-ink and special additives. Those additives are always missing within the generic carts!
Do use a original brother ink cart, make sure ALL carts are full with ink, placed well and are secured! Run the following procedure afterwards:
press menu then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow up (tel-index). machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh ink
within tubes and ph and do some special cleaning procedures. When finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy. machine will run a powerpurge.
When finished press 9 then 9 to leave the maintenance mode.
Print a quality test print by pressing ink Management etc.
If there is no BK afterwards the ph is defenitly clogged and cant be fixed anymore!

If you have tried 5 or 6 head cleans, left for about 10 hours and then tried 3 or 4 more without noticeable result then you probably need a head cleaning solution. Google for stockist near your area or try this one:
Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution, thanks.

Hi e-margaret. There's a bit of confusion here. Horizontal banding is due to LACK of ink flow to the paper. "Splodging" is due to too much. The former can be due to blocked/faulty print head nozzles or a faulty/empty-ish cartridge, or some less common problem like the waste ink pipe blocked. The latter is usually due to a leaking cartridge.
The first job is to mop up ink slopping around under the print head. Cut some strips of kitchen towel and fold them into 3 layers so you have a strip about 2 cm wide. Place them on the print head track. Turn on the printer, and as soon as the print head moves, pull out the power cord from the back of the printer. Now you should be able to move the print head carefully by hand too and fro over the towels. Repeat this with clean towel strips until most of the surplus ink is cleaned up. Remove the towel strips, replug in the power chord and switch the printer back on. Do a head clean cycle and nozzle check 3 or 4 times. If the nozzle check output looks OK, try a test print of a text document
If things are still not OK, report back on what happens in a new comment. If my instructions are not clear enough, please post a new comment asking for clarification.

if it has ink in it, then remove the black cartrige and take a damp cloth with water and wipe the print head,( once you wipe it a few times, you should see black ink on the cloth)
