It should clear automatically, unless the toner's reset gear was misplaced from the time of purchase or the Reset Lever inside the machine is not working, or the Toner is empty !! I can do it remotely through Team viewer with Special Software

someone cheaped out and got the el cheapo paper.
The low quality paper has paper dust on every page....
when the printer feeds this cheap paper thru the machine it drops the dust onto the tonor cartridge rollers and causes the roller to accumulate toner on the roller... this in turn is transfered to the pages being printed.
check your machines operation manual. There may be a clean cycle you can try to run to clean the rollers...
I had to buy a new toner cartridge for mine when this happened.

Brother printer is one of the best printer names in their respective category. Brother printers are very economically for public users.
Usually, it works great but sometimes it won't print. I read an article about brother printer issues and its solution at why is my brother printer printing blank pages - Ask Prob. There can be many reasons and their solutions are different for every reason.

Some reasons are given below-
·Printer installation issues
·Printer detection issues
·Compatibility problems
·Configuration issues
·Slow printing speed
·Paper gets jammed
·A low printing ink or toner issues
·Spooler errors
·Printer tune-up and optimization
·Unable to print from Printer
·Driver installation error
·Miscellaneous error messages
·Poor printing quality
·Unable to use Printer over the wifi network
You can try below steps to fix your Brother printer won't print issue-
1.Open the right side of the printer
2.On the motherboard simply reseat the 2 white cables.
3.Disconnected the USB cord if it is plugged into the computer.
4.Remove the cartridges from the printer as well.
5.If the power still on, unplug the power cable from the back of the printer, as well as the wall. Now, wait about 60 seconds.
6.Plug it back into the wall first, then the printer, allowing it to boot up.
7.If it gives you a message similar to "The following ink cartridges appear to be missing or damaged" you may reinstall them at that time when prompted.
8.If you are getting the same error message and you have a number pad on the printer, do the same steps but before plugging it back in, hold the (#) button with the number "3", and plug in the power cord back into the printer while holding the buttons down.
9.Once the printer starts showing that it's coming back up, you can let go of the buttons, and allow it to come back up.
10.If you still continue to get the message, then do the same thing except hold the "#" button and the number "6" on your keypad and allow it to come back up.
11.If you still get the message after all of the above steps are done, contact brother for a replacement if your printer is still in warranty.
Apart from that, you can Check the cartridges. Sometimes cartridge may be damaged.
I would like to recommend you either go the link mention above or brother support site. I am saying it because if you are not tech friendly, not able to solve it by your self.
