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.

SOURCE: 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)

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.

SOURCE: 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

How to improve print quality
Cleaning the print head
To ensure good print quality, the MFC will regularly clean the print
head. You can start the cleaning process manually if needed.
Clean the print head and ink cartridges if you get a horizontal line in
the text or graphics on your printed pages. You can clean Black only
or three colors at a time (Cyan/Yellow/Magenta), or all four colors at
once.
Cleaning the print head consumes ink. Cleaning too often uses ink
unnecessarily.
Caution
Do NOT touch the print head. Touching the print head may cause
permanent damage and may void the print head’s warranty.
1 Press Ink.
2 Press or to select Cleaning.
Press Menu/Set.
3 Press or to select Black, Color or All.
Press Menu/Set.
The MFC will clean the print head. When cleaning is finished,
the MFC will go back to standby mode automatically.
If you clean the print head at least five times and the print has
not improved, call Brother Customer Service (see Brother
numbers on page i).

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.
