You probably need to take it in for service. Thread guide pulse motor (TG-PM) is jammed with thread. There is a new shield that that can install to keep this from happening again.
You can gently try to move it with the machine on and see if that works, it is the little shuttle that goes up and down on the front of the machine, it is probably stuck where you can see it.
good luck!

    It worked! I called my local sewing machine company and the lady didnt know what the msg was. She suggested I bring it in to have it serviced which is $125 plus parts...I looked it up on internet instead and did what you said, looked for threads and gently moved it as I turned it on...works fine now! THANK YOU SO MUCH!

question is unclear. I had one of these super nice machines and it's one of the most advanced "auto-thread" mechanisms in any machine.
Go to an authorized Brother Repair shop and have it tuned- up and get more advice on how you might be able to DIY???
