The brother machines require ink in all the cartridges as it is always flushing ink through the heads to "clean" it. This means you must have ink in all cartridges at all times unfortunately or the brother will not work. Even if you could somehow get it to work it could damage your printhead anyway.
Please rate my advice, good or bad.

Theres a simple trick to cheat the machine.
you will definitly destroy the printhead when doing so for a longer periode!
You have to put some black adhesive tape around the middle part where you can see this black palstic flag inside the cart. This flag signals the printer that the cart is insert and later on when the ink is down to give the waring: near empty.
I do give you the advice to do another but saver cheating:
You can refill the cart with a mixture of 8 ml destill water and 3ml 85%-Glycerol (e. g. Glycerin alc. which can be bought at a drugstore for a few cents). Shake the mixture well (within the syringe) before refilling the cart.
See pics here how to do so (LC1000):

(brother has changed the construction of the carts! If you can see a plastic quad in the middle of the cart, you have to drill the hole just behind the air valve (white plastic looking out of the cart)

Something that has worked for some Brother owners to get cartridges recognised.
1. With your MFC powered up, open it up and remove the cartridge you are having a problem with, then close the MFC, leaving it powered up. It should report that there is no cartridge in the machine.
Still with the MFC powered up, open it up and reinsert the ink cartridge, then close the MFC. It should either ask if you have replaced a cartridge or go into its cleaning mode.
Answer "yes" to "have you replaced cartridge?" and it should either "print" or "clean" and then "print".

Tips for a great answer:
If the LCD displays "No Cartridge", there is a possibility that ink cartridges other than ones you replaced are empty. Follow steps below to check the ink volume. If there are empty ink cartridges, please replace them.
If the message "No Cartridge" does not disappear, unplug the machine from the AC power outlet and wait approximately 10 seconds, and then plug it back in. If the date and time appear on the display, the issue is resolved.
