If the machine is an MFC3420c using the LC21/800 style cartridges, then the ink cartridges are sitting on it.

The toner reset is performed on the toner cartridge not the printer menu. If the toner has registered empty don't try to use it unless it has actually been refilled. These cartridges actually do run almost completely empty unlike earlier models. If the cartridge has been filled you can reset the flag gear on the right hand end but correct positioning is crucial.

The waste ink chamber is probably full. You could disassemble the machine to remove clean and replace the waste ink pads then reassemble the machine and perform the purge count reset procedure (check google) or save yourself some grief and a heck of a mess and replace the machine.

Make sure all connections are as they should be, then make sure your ink cartridge are installed correctly and aligned properly- you can do the aligning process through the menu on your computer. Best of Luck!

On most color machines emptying the waste toner cartridge isn't an issue because the auger system dumps it into the waste toner. The brother machines before this a different way and have a cleaning blade in them. This blade wears out over time and needs to be replaced. Those waste toners last forever in that machine so your better off just replacing it. Other wise you probably are going to make a huge mess just to have problems once you get it back together.

If it says there is a jam, then there is. Open all the doors, remove the paper trays and use a flashlight to look for a small torn piece of paper. It is in there. Number one tip, pull paper jams evenly and if the paper tears, make sure you do the jigsaw puzzle and make sure you have the lot.
