    Hi my name is Dee. I really need your help. I am trying to print some photos, and they are coming out green. meaning the yellow turns green. I have the colors mixed. I checked to see if I inserted them correctly, and I did. I have this Brother MFC 210C for over a year now and I have never had problems. Now with my luck, I can't find the guide/manual. I tried to clean the inks, but it only cleans the black one. How do I clean the color inks, and how do I fix this problem?

Minolta magicolor 2300W printer colors are incorrect; color toner levels are 50% or more.


Check that you intalled toners in the correct way, eventually remove cartridges, and repeat toner installing procedure.
Check if it is just a color adjustment problem on printer settings.

WHILE TEST PRINT CYAN INK NOT SHOWING WHAT SHOULD I DO SIR


This issue will only occur if an ink cartridge(s) is or was installed inthe wrong position (slot) in the machine. When a cartridge is installed, the ink tube system is filled with the ink from the cartridges, to prepare the machine for printing. If the cartridge is inthe wrong position the tube will fill with the wrong color.


NOTE: If you just installed or replaced the ink cartridges and your printed documents are missing colors please refer to the solution - I just installed or replaced my ink cartridge and my printed documents aremissing colors. What can I do? Blank


To resolve this issue you will need to clean the print head.


NOTE: It may require 10 to 15 cleanings to clean the ink tubes and print head. During the cleaning process, the ink in the cartridge(s) will be consumed. Additional ink cartridges may be required to completethe cleaning process.


1. First verify the position of the ink cartridges:


a. Open the ink cartridge cover and check to make sure the ink cartridges are in the correct order.


b. Starting from the left side, the correct order is Black, Yellow, Cyan(blue), and Magenta (red).


- If the ink cartridges are installed in the correct order, close the ink cartridge cover and continue to STEP 2.


- If the ink cartridges are not in the correct order, remove the ink cartridges that are installed in the wrong position by pressing down on the release lever(s), located above the ink cartridge and remove the cartridge(s) from the machine.


Next, reinstall the ink cartridge(s) in the correct position in the machine by gently pushing the cartridge in until it clicks.


When all the cartridges are installed, close the ink cartridge cover.


2. After closing the ink cartridge cover, the LCD will prompt - Did youchange XXXX (XXXX = the color) This message will be displayed for ink cartridge that was removed. Press the - (Minus Key for No). This willkeep accurate data of how much ink is left in the cartridge.


1. Press the INK key.


2. Press OK to select Test Print.


3. Press OK to select Print Quality.


4. Press the COLOR START key.


5. Review the Check Sheet. The colors on the Check Sheet should be in a specific order: Black, yellow, Cyan (Blue) and Magenta (red).


a If the colors on the Check Sheet are in the correct order and are notmissing any dashes, press + (Plus Key for Yes) on the key pad and continue to STEP 7.


b If the colors on the Check Sheet are not in the correct order, are missing dashes or blank or a color other than Black, Yellow, Cyan or Magenta printed press - (Minus Key for No) on the key panel and continueto STEP 6.


6. The machine will need to perform cleanings to flush out the incorrectcolor or dried ink from the ink tubes and print head.


a. The LCD will ask you BLACK OK. If black is fully printed and is the correct color, press + (Plus Key for Yes). If it#s blank, missing dashes or is the incorrect color, press - (Minus Key for No).


b. The LCD will ask you COLOR OK. If any of the 3 colors (yellow, cyan (blue), and magenta (red) are fully printed and are the correct color, press + (Plus Key for Yes). If it#s blank, missing dashes or is the incorrect color, press - (Minus Key for No).


c. The LCD will say START CLEANING + for YES and - for NO. Press + for YES to start cleaning. The machine will go through a cleaning cycle that will take approximately one to two minutes.


d. After the cleaning is completed, the LCD will say PRESS START. Pressthe BLACK START key. This will print out the print quality check sheet again for you to check and see if your print quality issue has been resolved or not


NOTE: If you wait 1 minute after the cleaning cycle is completed, the display will return to date and time. You will need to go back to STEP 3 to print the Print Quality Check Sheet again.


e. If the ink color order is correct and all of the dashes are present, press + on the key pad to select YES and continue to STEP 7.


If the colors on the Check Sheet are not in the correct order, are missing dashes or blank or a color other than Black, Yellow, Cyan or Magenta printed press - key to select NO. Repeat the cleaning process byfollowing STEPS 6a through 6d. You may have to perform this procedure up to 15 times in order to clean the ink tubes and print head

Problem with my Brother MFC 210C Printer won't print the colors.


Check your ink cartridge if they are properly installed.

Check your print settings.

Make sure your ink cartridge are not empty.

Replace your ink with the original Brother ink cartridge.

Printer prints wrong colors


As a guess you have the color ink cartridges in the wrong places. Take them out and run a whole bunch of head cleaning routines. I'd expect the wrong colors for a while until the incorrect ink has been flushed out.

Check your manual or setup guide for the actual order . Usually black-cyan-magenta-yellow

I have air bubbles in the black ink feed tube on my brother mfc 210 c printer and it won't print. I have run the cleaning problem several times but it didn't help. The color inks print fine.


You've almost answered your own question! Try ruling out the ink cart first (preferrably with an Original Brother cart). If the cleaning cycle does not resolve it then it's really an engineer job.
Not much else you can do, unless you know how to take apart the machine.

Printing incorrect or faded colour.


Your printer have 4 sensors for ink level in ink tank section. Clean this sensors. Incorrect or dust colors - problems with printhead, or with the ink system. If you never replace printhead on this printer - call service. Thats be cheepest.
