If your printer is like the 420CN Model, do not forget to disconnect the printer for resetting purposes and connect it again and it may clean properly and run fine. Good luck! hopes it work. It did for me. My printer is working fine and I like it. It does the work.

Hi, to clean up brother MFC-845CW

Open the printer

Remove the ink cartridges from the print head.

Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water to thoroughly clean the print head.

Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab.

Once finished, allow to dry and replace the cartridges

Try to print something now

HOW DO I CLEAN THE INK HEAD FOR BLACK ON MY BROTHER MFC 210C


It seems simple enough, but this is one of the most effective ways of fixing printer cartridge error. Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached.

To reattach the cartridge check the following steps :

turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head.

Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report.

Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

How can i clean my mfc 210c printer head maually


The majority of the printer parts like take up rollers and gears can be cleaned using Rubbing (IsopropylAlcohol or aka Surgical Spirit in the UK this will remove ost of the finger grease that can build up over time.

I wouldn't however suggest that you attempt to manually clean the print heads as they can easily be damaged and destroy the printer replacement heads can be as much as a new printer and difficult to change.

I recommend using the deep clean function found in the printer driver maintenance tab, you might have to run it 3 times at least if you don't use your printer very often.

Tip is to always leave enough ink in the cartridges to prevent the heads from drying out, this is why most manufactures tell you to replace ink when there is about 5% left in them to prevent this happening

My mfc 210c is unable to clean and therefore I


Unable to clean means the waste ink is full, about 1 hour labor and $20.00 part. With the new machines running about $100.00 it's probably not worth the repair.

My Brother printer 210c says "Unable to Clean" and I cannot print.


"Unable to clean" mean that the wasteink container is full, which basicly means that you either have to have it replaced yourself, or have it sent to service. This isn't a normal consumable, and I'd doubt that it'll be worth it considering the price of the printer.
