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

Printer says unable to clean and therefor wont print until fixed


If you look at the Brother website you will find a trouble shooting guide for your machine.

In the guide, for the error you quote Brothers guidance is to check for a stuck piece paper, however it also states that if the print head is hard over to one side (righthand side if memory serves me correct), then to contact Brother. If you do so, Brother will tell you it needs to be serviced by a Brother agent, which will likely cost you more than a new one !

If it isnt a stuck peice of paper, the problem is due to the fact that Brother machines excessively self-clean. Each time they self-clean a small amount of ink is dumped in to a holding tank/sponge. When a predefined number of self-clean operations have been performed, the machine refuses to print and gives the error message you have stated. Brother state that the tank/sponge must be replaced before the counter is reset.

However, there is a way of reseting the self-clean counter yourself - if you Google your model number and the error code soemwhere in the results you'll find how to do it. The only risk of doing this without changing the tank/sponge is that it will eventually overflow and leak out the bottom, but I did my Brother all in one some time ago and have had no problems yet.

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

@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.
