Try removing all the Brother software, rebooting the computer and then reinstalling the printer driver. if this doesn't help, it may be an issue with the operating system of the computer, which usually is only solved by reinstalling the OS.

Change the USB cable. The cable you are using isn't sending data BACK to the computer that tells the computer that the printer is ready, and you have to reset, Change the USB cable for a NEW one, and then your computer will talk to your printer and vice-versa.
