If you have installed something since yesterday you might want to use system restore. the program might be causing the flaw. If not dont worry. You will need to uninstall the printer from your printer page and reinstall it. depending if it is a networked printer or a usb connected. If networked all you have to do is follow the install wizard. but if it is a usb you will have to go to the company's website and download a printer driver. after that it should work. dont forget to restart your computer. sometimes that can help too.

Did you try onboard print test by pressing INK LEVEL button. I am having similar problem but color prints but black does not. The printer has built in diagnostics that walks you thru some troubleshooting steps. It has you repeat cleaning 5 times and then asks you to replace cartridges if test fails...than repeat tests and call customer support if that does not work. Which I may do soon.

Does the Brother have a print utility, verifying cartridge levels?
You said you printed 40 pages?
Was there a lot of coverage per page?
You know that ALL printers only ship with STARTER cartridges, might want to check that first.
Does it not print black or color also?

You may not see a paper jam.
This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.
First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.
If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.
And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
