Question about Brother MFC 210C All-In-One InkJet Printer
I replaced the black and yellow ink catridges when they ran out but the printer hasn't recognised them as being there. The message reads....Near Empty Black....and Near Empty Yellow....even though they are full. When I print something, it's is very dull...almost black and white. There is no evidence of the red or blue either. I have turned the printer off, removed and re-installed the catridges but nothing is working....very frustrating. Can anyone help. How do I reset the printer??? My yellow ink is empty. I just want to print in black. It won't print in black.
Black electrical tape works like a charm on a Brother MFC-465CN. Thanks for the tip! :-)

I just had a similar problem.
It wouldn't print in black or color while it was indicating low on yellow. I pulled the inks and they were all more than 50% full.
I found a solution on another website on how to defeat the optical ink level detector which causes this problem. Some people use black electrical tape over the detector, right side of the ink well looking at the unit. I simply took a black marker and darkened in the clear plastic ridge on the ink cartridges case.Again, it's on the right side looking at the unit. Now all ink is indicated as full and it won't stop until dry instead of ripping me off and sending me to Staples with a 25% full ink cartridge to replace.
