With the full ink installed you might try plugging in power while you hold the stop key, sometimes the error is just locked and not cleared until you power up this way.

Clean the contacts inside the ink carriage. I mean the metal plate inside the slot where you put the black cartridge, clean using isopropyl alcohol or circuit cleaner solution.
Try again. Brother printers may give some trouble with ink detection, if problem persists you may need to turn off both printer and computer. Then disconnect power cord from printer and PC (power drain may help). Restart the whole system and try again.
If still no luck, then the chip in the cartridge may be defective (quite common if cartridge is not original or refurbished).
If the above did not fix the problem, and the cartridge is NEVER detected, even after trying different cartridge, then the wiring to printhead located at the back of ink carriage is broken. Testing is done reading Ohms between the plate contacts inside the ink carriage and the wires at the back of ink carriage.
