Question about Brother MFC 210C All-In-One InkJet Printer
Mine had the error 51 and after looking at everything in this FixYa, mine had a broken spring on a rod back behind the printer head. Look for that and it might help you. Took me several hours of researching

I can help you with your Brother MFC-210C error 51 problem.
Error 51 refers to a paper jam error.
Clear the paper jam to clear the error code.
If the error code will not clear after clearing the jam, resetting and powering off, the printer may require service.
I hope that helps.

Access the internal maintenance mode by pressing the Menu/Set button, then press * 2 8 6 4 within 2 seconds.
This should put you in the maintenance mode menu.
Enter 80, then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key.
You'll find an entry listed as purge count.
If number is over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.
This will reset the purge count value. Then restart you printer.

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
