My Brother printer has stopped showing when my ink is out.

Customer Question

My Brother printer has stopped showing when my ink is out. How do I reset this?
JA: What's the model of your printer?
Customer: mfc9970cdw
JA: Are you getting any error messages? Are you able to open the lid that covers the cartridges on your printer?
Customer: No error message, yes I can open lid The printer just stopped working so Im assuming it I'm assuming it's the ink that's out
JA: Anything else you want the printer expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: This happened yesterday when the blue ink ran out; but I just happened to choose the right cartridge to change. That's why I'm assuming it's the ink cartridge that is out; but I would like to have the message that's usually across the top of my read panel to tell me what color I need to change out.
