Not sure you can try, it may be that it reads the color of the waste container ( there is a sensor that tells it time to replace)
so if has any dark residue it may not read it.

try see what happens

How do I remove and replace the ink absorber pad/tank on my Brother MFC - 820 CW


Have a look at http://www.hstt.net/refill-faq/inside.html#Brother_mfc215c which is specificlly for the MFC-210c - no sure how similar the 820CW is.

It's in German but google does a reasonable translation.
After receiving a "UNABLE TO CLEAN" message, I've just cleaned the pads on my MFC-425CN (washed in cold water) and re-set the purge counter - all working fine now.

Brother MFC 210C printer unable to clean print head. How can I clean it manually? The inkjet cartridges are full but the printer does not print. Error message on display: unable to clean.


If your printer is like the 420CN Model, do not forget to disconnect the printer for resetting purposes and connect it again and it may clean properly and run fine. Good luck! hopes it work. It did for me. My printer is working fine and I like it. It does the work.

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.

Unable to clean?


Heres the mauel for the MFC-210C printer.

http://www.brother-usa.com/manuals/default.aspx?PRODUCTID=MFC210C&ProductGroupID=5

You can clean the outside of the printer and the paper handling mechanisms with a mild cleaning solution and a lint free cloth. To clean the insdie of the printer, use a HEPA vacuem and follow the manuels recommendations.
