This can sometimes happen when a cartridge becomes completely empty (but this shouldn't happen with original Brother ink carts).
Are you using Originals or compatable/refills etc?

If the ink carts all seem ok:

Take out all the ink carts and close cover.
Switch off power and wait a few seconds.
Switch power back on.
Machine will prompt you to install each cart.
Do this individually untill all carts are back in machine.

If this does not solve the problem (and you are 100% the ink carts are not faulty) the machine requires engineer to repair.

Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command , can be an issue with ink drying , can also be poor ink cartridge contacts, tighten the cartriges onto the slots.

Fax keeps saying out of ink


You can also put the machine in serves mode by unplugging the power from the machine, press both the the copy/help and the stop buttons at the same time, hold them and plug back the power until you see TF662B service mode.This also works well with refill cartridges. YJ
