Hi hedleygb,

I recommend that you make absolutely sure that you are following the correct procedure when you are installing the print cartridge. For this I need you to follow the instructions at
http://solutions.brother.com/mfc210c_all/en_us/options/us/
(click on the View PDF File link, especially the part about removing the new print cartridge's Cartridge Cover before installing it in your printer)

If you've made sure that you're following the correct procedure during the installation of the cartridge and the printer still won't print black, I recommend reinstalling the printer on your PC with the latest drivers. To do this you can follow the following steps;
(if these steps aren't sufficient for you to do the reinstallation, feel free to give me more info about the operating system you are running on your PC in the comments of this problem, so that I can give you more detailed steps on how to perform the reinstallation).

  1. Uninstall your printer's driver from your PC's operating system (e.g. Windows)
  2. Download the latest drivers for the MFC 210C at
    http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/Public/Templates/DownloadTop.aspx?NRMODE=Published&NRNODEGUID=%7b66D791E0-6EB2-410E-9602-7BFFA80A61D3%7d&NRORIGINALURL=%2fbsc%2fpublic%2feu%2feu_ot%2fen%2fdlf%2fdownload_top%2ehtml%3freg%3deu%26c%3deu_ot%26lang%3den%26prod%3dmfc210c_all&NRCACHEHINT=NoModifyGuest&prod=mfc210c_all&reg=eu&c=eu_ot&lang=en
    At Step1: Select Type select Driver
    At Step2: Select OS select the operating system you run on your PC (e.g. Windows XP or Windows Vista)
    At Step3: Select Language select your preferred language
  3. Reinstall the printer using the guidelines as documented in the printer's manual, which can be downloaded at
    http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/eu/eu_ot/en/doc/manual_index.html?reg=eu&c=eu_ot&lang=en&prod=mfc210c_all&type2=5&flang=English&dlid=
Feel free to contact me again via the comments of this problem if you need more information.

If you have completed the above mentioned troubleshooting processes and the printer's problem hasn't been solved this could indicate a hardware malfunction of one of the printer's components. In which case the printer should be serviced by a IT technician at a PC repair workshop.

I hope you find this info helpful in solving the problem with your printer and thanks for using the FixYa service
Kind regard

Dell v305 printer allignment problem


Hello Michelle,

You are using Dell Series 9 ink cartridges, correct?

If you unplug the printer from the wall and remove the power brick for 60 seconds, this will reset any error messages the printer has. I would then plug everything back in.

Power on the printer.

Open the printer(with the power on) and take out the Dell Series 9 black cartridge and then reseat it. I would then take out the color Dell Series 9 ink cartridge and reseat it. Now close the printer and it will print an alignment page.

Any error messages?

black cartridge = black side(left side) color cartridge = color side(right side)
photo cartridge = black side(left side) color cartridge = color side(right side)

It's possible to get a Dell Series 9 ink cartridge with a bad sensor. I would take these back to the place of purchase for a replacement.

Bhautesh,

Caution lite flashing over cartridge of hp deskjet 940c. error message says that there is not color ink cartridge in printer. There is and the interface says the tank is full. It won't print...


Even though the interface says the cartridge is full, if the printer detects it being empty, odds are you will have to replace the color cartridge, even though you are only printing black.
You can try taking the cartridge out and cleaning the contacts with a pencil eraser and reseat the color cartridge. If no change, replace the cartridge.

I have a HP officejest 6500 wireless 3-in-1 and when i'm trying to print a document in black ink, it sometimes prints in black and sometimes in yellow. what is wrong and how can i fix it?


Printer cartridges are very sensitive, especially the contact points. Reseat the cartridges, clean the contact point with a soft cloth, reinstall and perform test print again. Just make sure that there's still an ink in the cartridges...

Can't connect my compaq presario Cq4010F-pc to my brother MFC-210C.


There is a specific order in which you have to install the printer. Do not plug in the Brother MFC until the installation software asks you to do so. If you have the software installed. Uninstall it, unplug the printer, and reboot. Then run the installation again, and plug in the printer when asked by the installation guide.

New Brother MFC 885CW - fails to print in black - even with new cartridge.


Have you tried to align the print cartridge? Also, try cleaning the nozzle, both using the Brother diagnostics utilities that should have come with the printer. If all else fails it may be the print carriage that's broken.

MFC 210C not printing black, repeated cleaning produces no result. replacing cartridge the same.


Check the height adjustment of the print head for the black cartridge. If you've had a recent paper jam, it could have a piece stuck in mechanics. Clean and check the printer drive belt and track.
You may want to check the printer setup and make sure it is set to factory defaults.

Good Luck

Brother mfc printer


Hi Lera,
In you brother suite you can go to the maintanence tab and do the nozzle clean and print head allignment.
After you do that print a test page, either from the suite on in the properties of your printer.
You can also do general maintanence from the LCD screen on the MFC.
Scroll through the menu and you will find there are options for head cleaning and nozzle allignment.
Hope this helps.
