if your brother machine is within warranty, give the tech support a call. if not,replace the black cartridge with a new one. it may be a defective cartridge that you have or if you are using refilled cartridges, it will also give the same problem

You will receive messages like this if you are using remanufactured or compatible items. If the machine will not let you print, you most likely have a defective cartridge. Try to turn the machine off, restart, and do a print test. With low quality recycled cartridges, they sometimes don't have proper chipping (the microchip that tells your printer what the ink level is) and it can cause this error as well. Most of the time you should still be able to print. If restarting the machine doesn't fix the problem, you should be able to contact your cartridge vendor and have them send you a replacement.

I use generic cartridges all the time in my brother printers with no problem. better to pay $2 per cartridge than whatever the brother brand ones cost!

Your black printhead is blocked.
The printhead is deep inside the printer and has to be taken out by the expert and cleaned with the help of 'steam' and hot water. This is because not using the printer for a long time. or using low grade refill inks.
Please select new cartridge only if you are inserting a new cartridge or fully refilled cartridge. Otherwise use old cartridge option. Brother printer has a mechanical sensor and not the electronic chip in the ink cartridges.
After inserting the old used cartridge if you choose 'new cart' option it will show the "Full" ink. You can still print from the exhausted ink cart after covering the sensor in the middle by a piece of paper in emergency.

The nozzle may be blocked. So take out the colour cartridge and place its nozzle in a bit of water for about 10 mins. Bring it out and dab the nozzle with folded paper. If the tissue is blotted with the three colour it means you have unblocked the nozzle. Try now to print after returning the colour cartridge. You may need to repeat to get good results.
