If the foil of the ink holder bottom is seperated, the ink will flow INTO the printer (and the furniture below)!

You can use the holder of a defective dcp 110/115c. Its not worth to spent 1/4 of the printers price for a new spare part ;-)

After changing the ink cartridge on my brother mfc210 all in one it generally gives the message: cleaning, and then its good to go. this time it says: unable to clean see troubleshooting and routine...

Try running a purge count through the maintenance menu. You can enter maintenance mode by pressing: Menu> * 2 8 6 4 Press 8 0 Scroll down to purge count value. You should get there after pressing the down key 24 times. Press 2 7 8 3 to reset the purge count. The printer will restart.

The printer has been sitting idle for over a year I put in new ink cartridge and it won't print It is a Brother MFC210

When a printer has been idle for such a long time the ink dries in the printer nozzles and obviously blocks those nozzles. Not easy to clean that out because it is almost like micro jets. It could maybe be repaired but could be more expensive than buying a new one.

Hi Ellen, not sure if your problem is that you can't download ar that you don't know where to find the software.

The Full Driver & Software Package can be downloaded from the Brother website (63Mb).

I've used refillabl ink.

You can only use refillable once and sometimes not at all. The gasket on the cartridge has to fit snug or the printer won't recognize that you have put one in. Buy a new cartridge and that should fix the problem. I had the same problem.

Black ink is full but does not print.

Did you make sure that the cart was placed well and the plastic hook secures the cart on top?

If you have used Easy Jet carts, you can stop here and give the whole machine a push to the bin!
Easy Jet carts and some other generic ink carts clogg the fine filter in front of the nozzles which cant be cleaned anymore.

The ph as a spare part is more costly than a new mfc 240c at a price discount!

But you can try this at least:
Use a new original brother carts (BK/C/Y/M). place carts and secure them! (this procedure will consume some ink!)
press menu then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow-up button. machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh ink in tubes and ph
and will do some cleaning cycles. when finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy to run a special power purge.
When finished press 9 then 9. After machine is back in normal state run a test print.
If you still cant see any bk the ph cant be fixed anymore.

How To Refill?

Harry, you can use every DYE ink for brother printers. DO NOT use pigmented ink due to clogged filters inside the printhead!!!! The carts for mfc210 are filled with 20ml for BK and 11ml for C/Y/M. I use to refill 20ml only ink for bk and 10ml ink + 1ml printhead cleaner for C/Y/M. See here how to do that (LC900 refill): Refillen (Simply drill a hole into the brother brandname and leave it open!) I use a 20ml syringe and 3 12(10+2)ml syringes from the drugstore (ask your doc! It may be cheaper ;-)
