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

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)

Press the "ink" button, you will then see "test print" on the display. Press the top of the joystick like (labeled search/speed dial) wheel until the display changes to "cleaning"; then press Set. Press Set one more time to select the color black. Cleaning should start.

DID U REMOVE THE PLASTIC STRIP FROMT THE BOTTOM? IF NOT, SOMETIMES INK GETS OLD AND KIND OF DRY....SO I CLOGS UP WHERE THE INK DISPENSES.......ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS DAB YOUR FINGERTIP IN WARM WATER AND TOUCH THE AREA WHERE THE INK COMES OUT..........THIS ALWAYS WORKS FOR ME

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
