My printer cannot print

Hello please help me.
I've been printing lots of exam paper when suddenly my MFC-215C Printer suddenly showed "Unable to Print, see troubleshooting and routine maintenance chapter in User's Guide. Prior to this happening, my paper got stuck inside a few times & I already got it out from the back cover.
Can anyone tell me what I can do?
Thanks Ivy

Hello there Some times this is down to a small bit of paper sticking in it or some some thing ells.
This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Brother mfc-215c unable to clean?


The ink blotter in the bottom of the machine is full, this is a built-in redundancy. Machine needs to be completely stripped to replace this.

Buy another brand next time.

MFC-215C printer not printing


Hi, I had the same problem and found the answer from one website. Heres how you can fix it
1) Open the cover
2) Remove the empty cartridge
3) Close the cover without putting in the new cartridge
4) Open the cover and install the new cartridge
5) Close the cover and restart the printer (press power save to shut down and press it again to turn it on

It should go into cleaning and when you check the Ink Status monitor, it will detect that the ink is full.:) Hope this helps, it worked for me

Brother mfc-215c unable to clean?


@artkoy:

There is no Error 10 within the maintenance of the printer!
An error starting with 10 (and two more digits) belongs to the communication device (fax).

Plz check again what two digit error you have and post again.

@peter:

you need a new waist ink absorber. plz check the forum for unable to clean or error 46. Its explained many times.

RE PRINTING OUT AN IMAGE FROM MY BROTHER MFC-215c PRINTER


Neither nor do I press any of these buttons because you can print by help of the photo assistant of windows which will give you a hand.
Simply right click the picture on your pc and click printing. The assistenat will lead you thru the settings. You only have to make sure that your mfc is the chosen as the printer AND you havte to click the printer properties afterwards. The brother printer properties will let you choose the paper size (simply click the offered sizes and have a look at the left side of the window where a small pic can be seen. Beneath the pic you will find the explanation for the choosen setting e. g. borderless/ 4x6 inch etc.) choose the right paper like glossy for photo paper. When done click OK and leave the properties. Click further through the windows assistant and choose the resolution of the picture. Click OK and machine will print the desired pic ;-)

BTW you can do some very smart thing:
print a poster of 2x2 A4 or 3x3 A4 sheets of paper. You can set this size within the printers properties.

Have a look at the manual for further info ;-)
