Question about Brother MFC 210C All-In-One InkJet Printer
Hi, I've changed the ink cartridge several times. Black won't print. Other colors print in there respective slots, fine. HELP thanks, Jim
Had same problem. Do not go buy a new one just yet. I was just about to myself. Took ink remover and brushed it on one side of my thickest copying paper. Be sure ink removal side is the print side. Make about 3 copies which use the color that is not working. Black but works on any color. Clean cycle a few more times If you start to see the color appear in spots do not give up, Send another copy with ink remover a few cleaning cycles and your printer will be as good as new. PS If you do not use the printer much send a ink remover paper threw when finished to keep tips from clogging.

I have this same model printer and had this same problem. I solved it by running the cleaning cycle repeatedly (30 times or more). It nealy drained the black cartridge, but they're cheap compared to a new printer ($100 for the mfc240c that replaced it). Press the ink button to the left of the display. Select "test print" and "print quality from the menus, then hit print. After printing, the display will ask if quality is ok. Press 2 for no. It will ask if the black was ok, press 2 for no, if the color looks ok, then press 1 when it asks if color is ok, then press 1 when it asks to start cleaning. In a minute or so, it will beep and tell you to press start. Once the sheet prints again, repeat the same sequence. I didn't even wait for the display, I would just press 2,2,1,1, each time it printed. At first the black section was blank, the one dash appeared, then two or three. I gradually gained on it until I had most of them working again, then let it set overnight and ran a few more cycles the next day and it finally all started working.

I have an HP Photsmart C4100 printer. I purchased remanufactured ink cartridges (both black and tri-colored) from Vivasmart. The black one works fine, but when I installed the tri-color, I got an error message that says "Print cartridge problem" The following print cartridge has a problem:
Tri-color. And I can't print. The screen on my printer says "Remove and check color cartridge." I have done this several times and it still won't print. I have turned off the power, removed the cartridges, and unplugged the unit, but it still didn't help. Any suggestions?
