Question about Brother DCP-J140W
It may refer to the ink "overflow" box. When your printer cycles, it will dump a bit of ink which goes into a collection box. Most likely, that box is full and needs to be emptied, replaced, or whatever.

The usual obvious fix is to buy a new catridge, insert, power off
machine, then switch back on to reset any sensors. But if the circuitry
on the machine itself is faulty it wont fix it.
I used to own an MFC 260C. It had a perfectly good full ink catridge in it, that was working fine, until...it suddenly did not recognise the cartridge anymore.
I pulled the machine apart and found that 2 of the 4 sensors on the cct board at the back of the cartridge housing were loose. These sensors pass light through the exposed part of the cartridge to see if ink is there. So if these are faulty, you will never clear the "No Cartridge" or "Ink Empty..." or "Near Empty Ink ..." messages on the MFC260C and prbably other similar printers in the MFC range.
Why did they fail? Because the soldering on these sensors was poor quality.
I would never buy another Brother machine because of this, also because they design the machine to be totally useless unless all the ink ccartridges are full. Shame on you Brother, and kiss my *** for the $160 pile of junk I bought off you that was only on its second batch of cartridges (ie very little use)
