Unfortunately the DCP series are part of Brothers new POS technology range.
These often suffer two common problems.
1. Alignment issues.
The work a round is to turn off BiDirectional Printing.
2. The ink sensors fail.
The work around is to put tape over the bump in the ink cartridge.
This makes the printer think the cartridge is always full.
Be careful though not to let them run dry or you might clog the system or head.
Note: both issues can be repaired by a service center. But is this cheap unit really worth the cost? :(

Usually there is more than one cartridge empty when you receive this kind of problem. Try opening the top cover and check if the display changes - it should change to specify one (or more) of the color cartridges as empty. That one(s) should be changed too.

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.
