It looks like this is a crazy sensor problem that brother has never fixed- I've seen a lot of reports about it. Here's a forum related to this printer, and the Q & A cover a lot of issues:

I haven't used my printer in a while so when I try to print something the pages come out blank, but my ink cartridges are full. What could the problem be?


Have you tried putting it through the cleaning cycle found in the list of options on the screen? Also, does the page come out blank for copies as well as printing?

Brother MFC Printers Ink Problems


<span>Your printer does not print certain colors or does not print completely. Well, this is a common problem with people who purchase Brother printers, but do not always use Brother Ink Cartridges. Brother has a cleaning agent in the print cartridge and the compatibles do not.<br /><br />"If you have a lack of one (or more) color do the following:<br /><br />Make sure all carts are full, placed well and are secured. Insert a new ORIGINAL BROTHER CART for the one that shows no color.<br /><br />Press menu then start bk-copy then four times arrow up quick after another. machine will switch into maintenance mode and all lights will flash. Press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk-copy. machine will initialize the carts and refresh ink within tubes and print head. After that it does some power cleaning. When finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk-copy. machine will run a power purge. when finished press 9 then 9 to leave the maintenance mode. do run a quality test print.<br /><br />This should clean the lines out and clear up your issue.</span>

I would suspect your inkjets are blocked Black and blue =purple so the other colors are blocked up Use the nozzle cleaning function to try and remove the clog Run nozzle check after cleaning mode till all colors print correctly

Wont print


what are you trying to print in black? the best way to test out a black ink is to open word pad and type some thing random and print it and see if that works. if you have a all in one printer u might have 2 inks one color and one black in the printer
