The machine detects the ink by shining a light through the rib in one edge of the ink cartridge. Apparently yellow is close enough to nothing at all, that the sensors get a little out of whack. Here's how to reset the sensors:
There may be another problem causing this. The ink may really be low, or the sensor board may be off its mounts in the machine. But the routine above is quick & easy, and it fixes the problem more than half the time. You can't run without any of the colors, because that means air bubbles are getting into the ink tubes, and that can lead to dried ink blocking the nozzles.
This is unrelated, but when you peel the sealing tape from the bottom of the ink ctg., do it slowly. Brother has found that sometimes, when you strip the tape off too fast, a little glue remains stuck in the nozzle, blocking it. If that happens, dig the glue out carefully with a pin & it will be fine.

SOURCE: Black Ink Cartridge
The problem with this printer is that the Printhead is buried deep in the printer and is very difficult to get to. One trick that someone tried is to purchase print head cleaning solution from a website such as www.fillserv.com and fill an empty cartridge with the solution. Then constantly do head cleaning until the cartridge is empty and then try printing. You need to be good at refilling brother LC41-BK cartridge which is very difficult in the first place. I don't recommend it because it may cause more damage. When my Brother printer head got clogged I just threw it away. Its just not worth it in my opinion but at least you have an option.

Thanks for reading
Hope this Helps!

SOURCE: New ink cartridges not printing
there are 4 possibilities here.
1) the ink cartridge although appearing OK may have dried out or be faulty. If you have just purchased the cartridge take it back to the place of purchase for an exchange/refund.
2) not all the packaging has been completely removed. To check this remove the cartridge from the printer & make sure that ther is no plastic wrapping still on the cartridge.
3) the print nozzle is blocked. to check this go to control panel: printers & faxes right click on your printer then select properties. select the maintanence tab then do a nozzle check test. If the black does not print try selecting the clean & then deep clean items, If this still does not work remove the cartridges from the print head & see if using a soft lint free cloth you can remove any ink build up fom both the print side & the cartridge side of the print head. If this still does not work number 4 will apply.
4) your print head has failed. If u have warranty means better replace it..

The print heads don't appreciate being out of ink so the Brother printer has sensors to prevent that but the tape defeated that prevention. Maybe more cleanings or maybe a cartridge with printhead cleaning solution will help. Otherwise, I fear a new printer.
