There may be a problem with the printer's mechanism, electronics, or even the software. You should probably contact the company, and explain the situation. Presuming you have an internet connection, they may be able to correct the software via your computer, over the internet. You'll just have to allow the company access to your machine.

I often have the same problem - The inks being put into the printer are seated very sensitively. The lever holding them in may be also acting as a pressure sensitive switch because when I wiggle it a little, the printer usually starts working again! Make sure the cartridges are pressed STRAIGHT DOWN, wiggle them and wiggle the plastic pressure lever. (I do not know what else to call it!) and I hope yours works again. It is a great little printer, but this is really annoying! Good luck!
BTW, if your inks are RE-FILLED, that may be your problem. It seems they are made to NOT be refilled. To avoid this problem, do not wait till they are empty to refill them. Check them monthly (depends on usage) and when they get 1/2 way, refill then. Do NOT put the hypodermic refilling tube in deeper than necessary to refill. I use a heated nail to make my hole in the plastic, going ONLY in as far as necessary to make the hole, and then I cover it with scotch tape. Then I wash off my hands with Lava soap! (Haven't mastered the knack of not getting the ink on myself, yet!)

This could be several things, some of which may mean your machine will have to be repaired by a Brother agent (probably cost you more than a new one), and/or it's time to bin it.
However, sometimes it's just because the print head, or the pipes that connect the ink tanks to the print head, have become blocked with dried out ink.
If you search on YouTube, you will find a few videos that show how to clear such blockages - you may not find your exact model number, but many Brother machines use almost identical components to many others so the basic technique will be the same. Also search on Ebay for printer cleaning/head blockage kits - quite a few printers (not just Brother) suffer similar problems and a few businesses have sprung up on EBay that sell kits to help you sort this. They sometimes have links to a video they have produced showing how to use the kit which can give you ideas. Again, your exact model number or even make might not come up but these kits might be adaptable to your machine. Got to be worth a tenner or so before binning it ! Good luck
