This may sound dumb but is it printing? I've had this happen to me and most of the time it is just like a faulty reading. Try removing and putting it back in carefully a few times. Outher wise the cartridge (s) may just be near empty. Run the clean option on the printer a few times is another step I'd take before buying another cartridge. Good luck.

    Bigbossone, Sorry I didn't mention this; If you download SSC Service Utility (just do a search for a download site) there is an ink monitor when you open SSC that has a reseter for ink levels. It will provide the true ink levels.

Printer cannot detect new yellow ink, the near empty message on


The Ink sensor sounds like it needs to be replaced. This happens from time to time.

Brother MFC 210C All-in-One Ink Cartridges


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.

Screen reads "Near empty Cyan" but I just replaced the Cyan ink cartridge, its full.


If the firmware update doesn't work, you can reset this error.

Unplug unit. Remove offending cartridge. Plug unit back in, wait until all startup noises have stopped. Open lid and reinstall cartridge. This will solve the fault as long as the sensor is working.

Also, please be aware, you should not have to change a cartridge if it says "Near Empty", only if it says "Ink Empty Magenta".

Also, please make sure none of your other cartridges are empty. I have seen this over and over. Two cartridges empty at the same time, and the person replaces one of them but thinks they actually replaced the other one.

Turn the power off and pull all the cartridges out. Look a the side of the cartridge, you should see a window with a little plastic tab sticking out. This tab should be blocked by a black float inside the cartridge. If you cannot see the float, and the tab is clear with no ink in it and no float tab blocking it, it means the cartridge is empty even if you still see some ink in the bottom.

To be sure plug the machine in without any cartridges. When all the noises have stopped, open the lid and install the cartridges. If you're still getting an error saying either a cartridge is not installed or is empty, then one of your cartridges is empty. Redo the previous paragraph.
