Reset Waste Toner

If your machine is displaying "replace waste toner container" then you can empty the waste toner box & reset the machine.
If you open the front door you will see a large black box & above this a small rectangular green button. Pressing this button will release the black box. The box will then lift upwards from the machine. At the bottom of the box you will see a round, clear plastic bung, remove the bung & empty the waste toner into a suitable bag or container. Once emptied, the bung can be re-fitted, the waste box can be inserted back into the machine. Locate the waste box into the 2 slots then push the waste box firmly back in place until it latches. Turn the machine off & on using the switch located to the left of the waste box in the bottom left corner of the inside of the front door. This should reset the machine. Be careful when disposing of the waste toner, it is flammable so do not dispose of in a fire. Hope this helps.

Ink box full

First thing you need to do is to reset it. If you reset it and continue to use it without completing the process of cleaning it out completely you will have the waste ink tank overflow causing major damage to the machine, your desk it is on and possably the carpet, curtains and anything even close to touching the machine and subsequent items being touched by the machine. Ink on a non-porous material will travel a very long way damaging everything in it's path.

Menu - Black Start - Up Arrow x4
This needs to be done in the space of about 5 seconds.

On the screen should now read Maintenance.
using the up and down arrows get the LCD screen to read the following: Between each number you need to press the 'OK' Button

This is now in Function 80 which is the system log.
Use the black start button to get to the log for Purge or Flush counter it is normally somewhere in the region of 25th in the list.

Once you are on this item. Use the up and down arrows and the OK button to do the following sequence:

This will reset the purge/flush counter to 0

Press the Stop button to return to the Maintenance on the LCD screen point.

use the up and down arrows and ok button to do the sequence:

This will exit you from the Maintenace Mode.

Now you will have reset the counter but you are not done yet. We are up to the hard part now and the messiest.
You need to clean the Waste Ink Tank out. You have to dismantle the printer to get to the waste ink tank. This requires a bit of knowhow to do it without damaging the machine but you can't get the knowhow without opening up the machine. This will require removing several screws and unclipping various parts of the casing then removing several cables to allow the different parts to seperate. If you are unsure or don't want to risk it don't do it as damaging the machine or the electronics inside the machine just means shelling out for a new printer and rather than spend the time to reset the machine and cleaning it out only to replace the machine because of a broken part on dissasembly or reassembly you may just want to replace it outright. It may be in one of two places. Depends on the machine. The cleaning process is the same for both systems.

The easiest machines have it in a box behind the paper feed mechanisim. Disconnect the two feed tubes from the box and remove the box. Break the plastic seal over the Waste Ink Tank material.

The not so easy machine has the waste ink tank underneath the main chassis of the printer. You have to lift all the components if the machine up to get to the waste ink tank. Do this to access the material.

Remove the material and clean it out using lots of running water squeezing as much ink from the material as possible. Wrapping it in Newspaper to absorb water put it on the ground and stand on it to squeeze any water out. Place the material aside for a couple of days in a warm dry place to completely dry out. Put the material back in the respective waste ink locations as shown above. Then reassemble the machine and test.

Failure to complete the cleaning process I stress again WILL result in the overflowing of the Waste Ink Tank. Proceed at your own risk.

Where is the waste cartridge located on the MFC-210C printer

This machine doesn't have a "waste cartridge" as such.

The waste ink created when the machine cleans, flushes and purges the print head and ink supply mechanism, is dumped in to two separte recepticles - the Flushing Box and the Ink Absorber Box.

Both of these boxes are located deep inside the machine and require substantial disassembly of the machine in order to reach them.

In Brother's terms, they are not "user replaceable items" and are only supposed to be replaced by Brother technicians and/or a Brother service centre.

They are available from specialist suppliers BUT are very expensive, so expensive that more often than not, it's cheaper to buy a new machine.

However, if the reason for asking is because you have an error something along the lines of "unable to clean", this maybe that the Flushing/Purge counters have reached the limit set by Brother. These limits are very, very conservative (if too much ink is dumped into the Boxes it could overflow), so many peolpe (including me) just reset them back to zero. If you search Google or YouTube, you'll ome across many articles showing you how to do this.

Sometimes it takes several flushes to remove even a small amount of waste. Other times water spurts out of the toilet bowl when we flush. This is a brand new toilet and we are quite...

For now, just hold the handle down until everything goes down, common problem with low water use toilets, You may want to take this unit back and get another one.

When I put the game in it clicks twice and then it won't read the game.

the clicking is the lazer head bouncing back after trying to read the disc put a lazer disc cleaner through the unit several times to clean the laser head and you should be right if this does not work then get the head cleaned by a pro

Brother mfc 420cn, machine error 46

Your waste ink absorber box has reached its limit. You have to replace the box (which is cheap, get one from your local brother service centre).
After replacing it you have to reset the purge counter and flushing counter.

This is not easy to do and I don't recommend it for anyone who is not technically inclined. You have to remove the front control panel, open the covers on the top cover assembly under the scanner. Unplug all the cables. Disconnect the ground wire (if any), remove the prop, remove the scanner assy by opening 90 degrees and sliding rearward. Put scanner aside. Remove four screws holding top case on, pry out the bosses at the front and remove the top cover.
At the rear you will see the flushing box or waste ink box. Lift it up a little. You should see two tubes attached. Remove the tubes and pull the box out. Dispose of old box. Attach the tubes to the new box and install it where the old one was. Reassemble in reverse order. Don't forget to plug in all the cables under the control panel.

Plug the unit in while holding down the Menu button. Keep holding until all the lights are flashing. Welcome to maintenance mode.
Press 8 and then 0. Press the Black Start key several times until you see Purge or Purge Count on the display. Now press 2, 7, 8, 3 to clear the count. Press Stop. Press 8, 0 again and the Black Start key several times until you see Flush or Flushing count. Again press 2, 7, 8, 3 to reset the flush count. Press Stop. Press 9 and 9 to exit maintenance mode. Job done.

Waste toner box

The waste toner box did you happen maybe break the a small black piece off the waste toner box there is slot for the clear section on the back of the old toner box and you can tell by looking at the machine where the sensor is for that in middle. there should be to the right lower of the machine inside where the toner box goes two slots one handles sensor that tell the copier the box is installed and another for half full box. Have NEW one install it. make sure your toner box has those parts that stick out to accurate those sensors.

Have an eson stylus cx9400F

Every time you do a nozzle clean routine in an inkjet printer, like the Epson CX9400Fax, ink is wasted. When it is $20.00 for a quarter ounce, that is wasteful to your wallet too. The nozzle head cleaning routine flushes your ink from the cartridge through a tube to the nozzle, where it mostens the nearly microscopic holes and flushes hardened ink residue away.

The wasted ink from machines often goes through a rubber gasket or wiper, and into a large, thick felt pad, maybe an inch thick, hidden deep inside, near the bottom of the printer, where it eventually soaks in and dries. In some machines, this happens every time you start the printer, so it makes sense to keep it plugged in. Each cartridge uses some ink, even if you only use it for black and white, so you pay a lot for something you don't even use.

Unfortunately, HP and Epson abuse the trust that users put in them. Word is that HP makes more money on cartridges than it does in printers and plotters. This leads to poor printer design that makes it impossible to refill cartridges, get 3rd party cartridges, or use a printer for black and white and not waste color ink.
