SOURCE: drum error
With that error you need to remove the drum, run the little blue tab on top back and forth about 20 times, blow out the area below the blue tab, and re install and try printing again. If the error is drum life end you need to open the front door and press either menu or options, sometimes the clear/back button and tell it it's a new drum.

SOURCE: I have this problem too (
if you have consciously attempted the procedure suggested on the maintenance guide and you still have that error you may have to contemplate the possibility of replacing the drum.

If you look at the Brother website you will find a trouble shooting guide for your machine.
In the guide, for the error you quote Brothers guidance is to check for a stuck piece paper, however it also states that if the printhead is hard over to one side (righthand side if memory serves me correct), then to contact Brother. If you do so, Brother will tell you it needs to be serviced by a Brother agent, which will likely cost you more than a new one !
If it isnt a stuck piece of paper, the problem is due to the fact that Brother machines excessively self-clean. Each time they self-clean a small amount of ink is dumped in to a holding tank/sponge. When a predefined number of self-clean operations have been performed, the machine refuses to print and gives the error message you have stated. Brother state that the tank/sponge must be replaced before the counter is reset, again by a Brother agent.
However, there is a way of reseting the self-clean counter yourself - if you Google your model number and the error code somewhere in the results you'll find how to do it. The only risk of doing this without changing the tank/sponge is that it will eventually overflow and leak out the bottom, but I did my Brother all in one some time ago and have had no problems yet.
