Question about Brother MFC 210C All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Brother MFC-210c prints some lines blurred, letters stacked - alignment ok.

I just obtained a relatively new MFC-210c with the “Unable to clean” error 46, which I solved with a new ink absorber (thanks FixYa!).

It now prints but the text is stacked or blurred on certain lines. I followed the alignment advice and, sure enough, the alignment was off so I corrected it following the instructions. Now the alignment test is good, but the blurring/stacking is still there (slightly improved). Please see images below:

The severity of the blurring seems to come in waves down the page, with some lines being almost fine.

I almost wonder if it might be some problem with the timing of the paper feeding through the rollers. I dunno… any ideas?

I have the same problem. repeated cleanings seem to help, when i print large fonts they come out pretty clear, but the smaller the font, the worse the blurring. 600 DPI prints mismatching patterns, but 1200 DPI prints perfectly fine. so i have found that printing on "fine" quality instead of "fast" or "normal" quality improves print quality ALOT. it uses more ink, but i am in business and need to be able to read very fine print!

    I also had problems with black being blurred/smudged while colors looked good. Repeated cleaning did not help. Changing quality from "normal" to "fine" completely solved the problem. Thanks for posting!

Not printing black


Black printer ink in brother Printer may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

Brother MFC 210C printer unable to clean print head. How can I clean it manually? The inkjet cartridges are full but the printer does not print. Error message on display: unable to clean.


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.

Error messaage "unable to clean" on a MFC210c


There should be a number with the error, if it's 46, you need a new ink flushing box. You won't be able to fax until you clear the error.
