Question about Brother MFC 210C All-In-One InkJet Printer
Is there a way to continue printing even though the printer says there is near empty or empty ink cartridge? Is there a way to completely empty the ink from the cartridge? Sometimes the printer tells me to change the ink cartridge and I can still see and hear ink in the cartridge.
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.

did you watch the display after replacing the cart?
Very often the machine asks if you have changed the cart and demands an answer (1 for yes).
You can try to do an update of the firmware, too. Go to www.brother.com , choose your country and then your machine. Download a small update tool and run it.
If it aint getting better:
Do unplug from power outlet (even though you have done already) wait 10 Min. leave scanner cover open and take all carts out. Plugin to power again and leave scanner open. Wait uintil machine gives a warning signal. Reinsert carts and close cover: now watch the display and give always the answer YES(1).

Do use original ink carts because thirdparty ones have a different construction and wont be accepted by printer sometimes.
When (re-)inserting press ink cart into assy and clip the support over the edge.
Please check the other carts, too. They may be empty.
