If your cartridge has a lever on the left side near the rear, it needs to be reset, and there's a lever inside on the left that can stick and cause that error. You need to wiggle and pull that lever until it moves freely again.

It has no accurate measure of the toner left, it is reset when you put in a fresh toner and just counts prints. The Brother shines a light thru a little window from right to left and when the toner is empty the light shines thru and it says it's empty.

Testimonial: "Right to the point. Thank you."
Two likely possibilities:
1. The drum is scratched by particles caught under the drum cleaning blade. Every copier or printer that has a drum leaves a little bit of toner on the drum that didn't get transferred to the paper. A soft plastic blade scrapes off that excess. If a chunk of fused toner or something gets caught under it, it can scrape a groove around the drum, resulting in a black line. Take a close look at the drum for scratches matching the lines you get. The cure is a new drum unit.
2. The fuser roller is scratched. Open up the back of the printer. The fuser is the assembly with labels warning about how hot it is. The final stage of the print process is to press the page between those two hot rollers, melting the toner into the paper. The hot roller is coated with Teflon to prevent pulling toner off the page and laying it back down where it doesn't belong, but like the drum, it can be scratched. You might be able to look for scratches on the hot roller with the help of a strong flashlight and magnifier. If it's scratched, you need a new hot roller or a complete new fuser.

SOURCE: Brother Toner Refills
Yeah you can refill your cartridge. It is really easy and consists of removing the plug on the side of the cartridge, dumping out any old toner and dumping in the new toner. Its very easy. I have purchased refill kits from both of these sites in the past and its worked great:
They also have great customer service. I hope this helps!
