    My Brother MFC 215 C told me to "replace magenta" when I had done so (replaced all) it now tells me to "insert cartridge" . It appears not to be able to detect the new (genuine Brother) cartriges. I have tried to switch the machine off and replaced the cartidges.

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

Unable to clean says to consult maintance chapter in users guide i dont have user manual model mfc=215c


Here is the link to the main Brother support page for your printer:

http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/eu/gb/en/doc/manual_index.html?reg=eu&c=gb&lang=en&prod=mfc215c_eu_as&dlid=&flang=English&type2=-1


And here is a direct link to the ONLINE USER'S MANUAL for that model:

http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/Public/files/dlf/doc000453/BH3eLowBase_UkEngUsr.pdf


To view the Support Page or the User's Manual just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated.

You may need ADOBE READER installed on your computer to read PDF documents. You can download this free at WWW.ADOBE.COM if necessary. Click on the DOWNLOAD ADOBE READER button on right side of the ADOBE home page when you get there, and then just follow the onscreen instructions to install it.

See page 138 of the ONLINE USER'S MANUAL for detailed instructions on how to CLEAN THE PRINT HEAD.

Basically it reads:

Press INK MANAGEMENT.
Press UP or DOWN ARROW to select CLEANING.
Press MENU / SET.
Press UP or DOWN ARROW to select BLACK, COLOR, or ALL.
Press MENU / SET.
The machine should now clean the print head then go back into standby mode automatically.

Please comment back here to this page if you have any questions, have difficulty accessing the links, or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.

Thank you very much and good luck.

Brother MFC - 215C Unable to clean, my home doesn't use actual ink tank for Brother, so when every time the ink is less, or almost finish i need to clean it, to **** to ink in. But this time I can't clean,...


The machine has a mechanical problem or a foregn obstacle, such as ripped paper.
unplug electric cord and power on with your finger on MENU button, till you see "MAINTENANCE"
on screen, then release MENU button and dial 82
so you see something like
"machine error" and 2 digits of error code
if there is 46 error code if have to replace the ink absorber box and reset the purge counter to zero.
which error there is?

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.

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.

Printer won't print in black


This could be to several reasons:
1#  The black cart contains blue ink-> Change to a brand new cart.

2# The cart assy has a bottom that is a foil. Sometimes this foil leaks.
Ink will mingle: You need a new cart assy.

Run the cleaning cycle twice after inserting a brand new bk ink cart and print out a test print. If you still see blue instead of bk the assy is leaking.
BTW the bk is darker than blue (or better cyan). You must see bk! So it seems to be the prob with the right ink....
