This may be due to the fact that you have not removed correctly the small label that seals the air input to the cartridge. Normally on brother cartridges it's on the back or on the top of the colored label. Please check that. If no air is allowed in then your ink will not be provided thus generating your problem.
The color printer might not print in color due to dirt and other unwanted particles present in the printer. Due to this unwanted particles, the ink used for printing and other materials might become blocked inside the printer device and this might lead to some printing issues. In order to resolve this issue, regular cleaning of the printer is necessary.

1. Your scanner glass is dirty. Open the lid, use windex to clean the
flatbed. Look on the left side. You should see a strip of glass, with
the scanner sitting under it. This strip is used when the document feed
is being used. Make sure it is clean. Most common problem is getting a
little whiteout or the sticky residue from scotch tape on this glass,
which causes lines down your copies.
Clean it with alcohol which will dissolve the sticky stuff and the whiteout.
If this does not solve the problem, the CCD scanner in your machine might be going bad.
