Hi

Power off the priter.Locate the lever on the right side of the top cover. Pull this lever to open the top. Remove the print cartridge by pulling on its attached release lever. You will now see the printer head.
Clean the printer head by wiping it with a lint free cloth moistened lightly with rubbing alcohol. Replace the print cartridge when the printer head is dry. Replace the cartridge by inserting one end and tilting the other end into the printer until it clicks.
Close the top cover of the printer by pressing down on both sides until the top clicks. Your printer will work now.

Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

Don't want to print red


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

I have a Brother MFC-215C.The yellow isnt working.Iwas adviced to clean the print head as recomended by Brother.Idoes it 5 times with no results.please help me.Ilike my printer and dont want to change him.


Replace the yellow ink cartridge and try again. If it's the same then the printing head is clogged. To clean it you must remove it from the printer. For that look at this - it has the same mechanism

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?


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.
