Question about Brother MFC 210C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Ink problems.... For the Brother MFC-210C... I have been experiencing many continuous problems with changing the ink cartridges, 1 - Message appreared saying Cyan needed replacing, so I installed a new cyan...then, 2 - Message appeared saying Black needed replacing, so I installed a new black....then, 3 - Message appreared again, saying Cyan needed replacing....even though there was a new cartridge installed. 4 - After many attempts to re-stall and check every color, I could only assume something was wrong with the ink cartridge and returned it and received a new one then, 5 - Reinstalled cyan, and message appeared that yellow needed replacing so I installed a new yellow, and then a message appeared that magenta needed replacing, so I replaced it with a brand new one.... 6 - Then, another message appeared that said cyan needed replacing, which confused me as it was a brand new cartridge.....I uninstalled it and the cartridge was almost completey empty... Where did the ink go? What is the problem??? please help!!!!

Take all carts out of the machine. Have a look into the cart holder. Is there ink swapping beneath the white plastic? (You might shake the machine ;-)

If yes, the cart holder leaks and needs replacement.

If not (your lucky!) it could be that the automatic cleaning procedure which starts when a cart is changed has soaked the carts empty.

Do set machine with date and time and NEVER unplug NOR use a power switch which breaks the power supply.

Do use constant power and switch off machine by pressing stand-by-fax-button!

Everytime when machine comes to (new) power contact it runs an extensive ink cleaning procedure. thats why your carts are always near empty....
The stand-by will prevent this and machine does some cleaning procedures which consumes only a few drops(!) of ink!


The display asks you if you have changed the carts. Do answer this question by pressing 1 for YES or 2 for NO.
This will reset the built-in inkcountermanagement to the correct settings

Install cyan


That message is saying you need to replace the blue "Cyan" ink cartridge in the printer. When the printer detects that the ink in out it tells you to replace the empty one to continue printing. Just buy a new cartridge install it and you will be good to go.

I replaced the inkjet cartridges in a Brother 210c All in One and it still shows low ink levels in the color cartridges (Black is fine). Where do I need to troubleshoot?


Just unplug the machine and plug it back in while you hold the stop key for about 10 seconds. Usually clears up and resets ink levels.

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.

Will not accept new yellow ink cartridge.


Do you use generic carts?
If yes try another cart (always best: original brother carts)

Only printing black and cyan


If you have used third party carts before you can't repair this problem due to the fact that the filter inside the printhead is clogged with particles. There is no chance to clean the filter. Sorry. Do use only dye ink. Pigmented ink is the printhead killer for brother printers!
