that error usually indicates that the toner has reached its end of life
or the drum is not properly installed.
i had one person who put the toner in but threw the drum cartridge away.

This works on several different Brother Printers to get rid of toner/drum empty errors:
1. Open the front cover and leave open while completing the following steps.
2. Turn the printer off.
3. Hold the 'go' button while turning the printer on. All panel lights should be on.
4. Release the 'go' button.
5. Press the 'go' button 2 times.
7. Press the 'go' button 5 times.
8. The toner light should be off.
9. The paper light should be on or flashing [doesn't happen on all].
10. Close cover. The ready light should be the only light on.
