Hi ssly96

It is possible that your colour cartridge (that also has black ink in it) is low on same. Have you tried to print with the printer setting to grey scale or black only. This should fix the problem. If it does not, then please get back to me here and I will look into it further.

    Hi, OK, try the reset prcedure and see what happens.





    1. press the Menu & Mono start keys. next press the up arrow key 4 times to make the machine enter the maintenance mode.

    2. Enter 8 & 0 by using the up arrow key & SET keys.

    3. press the mono start key several times untill the purge count appears on the LCD.

    4. enter 2 7 8 & 3 by using the up arrow key & set keys to reset the purge count to zero

    5. press the stop/exit key to return to the initial stage of the maintanance mode.

    6. enter 9 twice by using the up arrow & set key's to exit from maintenance mode

Ran low on inks on my mfc-990cw and after replacing them now all show full levels but when printing black does not show. ZTried cleaning feature but did not help. Still no black


me too. Brother tech said bad printer head. cost of replacement (only when bad after one year and 3 month) the same value as a new printer.
so, I use it as scanner and telephone. but still not using the printer it comsume all the ink, so it asks you to put new ink in the printer..... waste of $$$$
Will trough it to the garbage!

I replaced the inkjet cartridges in a Brother 210c All in One and it still shows low ink levels in the color cartridges (Black is fine). Where do I need to troubleshoot?


Just unplug the machine and plug it back in while you hold the stop key for about 10 seconds. Usually clears up and resets ink levels.

MFC does not recognise the new black ink cartridge.


Disconnect power supply and USB lead (leave disconnected for 10 min). Repeat this for each colour that is not working and hey presto the LCD readout will revert to normal and you will be able to print again. Happy Christmas! Hope this works for you (worked for me)

MFC 210c problem with Magenta ink


I had a similar problem with my black ink. The printer had indicated that it was out of black ink. I didn't have one on hand, so, for more than a week I couldn't print anything, because if you are out of any one of the four ink cartridges, it won't print at all. That delay in replacing the black ink cartridge apparently was enough time for the printhead to dry out. Big Mistake! I contacted Brother's Tech Support and they suggested I run the cleaning cycle and try to print a test page. Still nothing printed. They had me run another cleaning cycle, and another, and another. Finally, after the fourth cleaning cycle, something started to show up on the paper. They had me clean it two more times, six in all, and it was back to normal. From now on, if it says one of the ink cartridges is empty, I change it yesterday. The major disadvantage of all of this, other than not being able to print for awhile, is that this procedure used up about 1/2 of a brand new black ink cartridge.

Brother problem


Did you use third party ink? If the ink is pigmented the filter in front of the printnozzels is clogged and cant be cleaned any more. What you can try is to buy a brand new original brother ink cart and do the cleaning 3 times. After that do a testsheet printing. In case its OK, your lucky and it was a problem of the cart. If you cant see any blocks (with the original ink used!!!) the printhead is crashed and has to be replaced (BTW: Its cheaper to buy a new mfc)! Do use only dye ink for brother printers!!!
