SOURCE: Cartridge not detected
Change ink! It has a sensor that stops operation to ensure ink lines remain with ink in them
There should always be ink left in cartridge otherwise the printer would suck in air and air would turn in to bubbles in the ink line which become blank areas on your printing.

Run the Brother Control Center. Click Device settings. Click where it says Inklevel.
A simpler way is Start-->All Programs-->Brother--> ...-->Status Monitor.
An icon will lodge itself on the tray (a printer). When icon is clicked on, the inklevels will show.
Hope it helps.

Not all printers have this option, but i think this one should.
you may need to download and install the software, you can do that from here:
Try the HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers and the HP Printing Diagnostic Utility
give that a go. Hope this helps

Tips for a great answer:
NOTE: Ink level warnings and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When an indicator shows low ink levels, consider having a replacement ink cartridge available to avoid possible printing delays. You do not need to replace ink cartridges until you are prompted to.Many HP printers display ink and toner cartridge levels on the control panel. Look for an ink drop or cartridge icon or an Ink Levels menu to check the status of each cartridge.
