by useing original brother carts instead of poor designed generic ones.
Or by answering the lcd-display question if you have changed the cart.
or by making sure that the plastic nose secures the cart which was placed well into the holder.
If that doesnt work, the circuit board might be defective.

This is a simple fix. This printer uses a LIGHT SENSOR to detect if the cartridge is installed properly. Numerous things can allow extra light to enter... your solution is this:
Get electrical tape (duct tape may be too thick) and cover the rear sides of your cartridge; along with the recessed square shaped area that is directly in the center of your cartridge. Cut the tape so that you can cover this area without impeding the shape of the cartridge (so it can still be inserted and removed easily) I have used this solution to repair this exact problem on MFC-665CW when installing a continuous ink supply (in place of the original cartridges) You can actually just tape the internal sensor and close the front cover if you want to test it without any cartridge at all (though its not a good idea to print like that as I"m not sure if it will damage the unit) Those of you wishing to only buy Black ink can attempt this if you dont care about voiding the warranty or possibly breaking the unit... just cover the other slots with electric tape.

The printer says that when you use other brands of ink other than recommended. I get it happening all the time. When it happens just press Stop/Exit and the printer will work fine.

On the front of the cartridge there is a sight tube for the ink, the fax shines a light through this tube to detect the ink.
I wraped a piece of paper around the tube to block the light beam on all the cartridges.
I dont need a processer to tell me if the machine is out of ink, I can work thay out when it stops printing!!
Now tell me you are out of ink you peice of electronic ****.
