When the toner cartridge is exhausted or empty then theprinter will not be able to print further documents or the prints will be veryfaint.You may be able to print a few more pages by removing thetoner cartridge and shaking the toner cartridge in a horizontal position a fewtimes and then placing it back into the printer.This will give you an opportunity to print a few more pages and giveyou time to purchase a new toner cartridge for your printer. A cheaperalternative is to purchase a re-manufactured toner cartridge for your modelprinter.A re-manufactured printer cartridge also replaces worn partsas well as refilling with toner powder.

Brother MFC 7820N, I am getting "Toner End Life"


I fail to see why you are covering up the toner sensor led's when you have a new cartridge fitted?
Also if you are using a recycled toner from a very well known uk shop that refills toners and ink then you may well have broken the drive gear that stirs the toner. i have seen this six times and their toners do this.
It could well be one of the pitfuls of recycled toners.

Brother MFC-9440CN Laser Printer is saying toner life end and I just put a new cartridge in.


If you want to reset your Brother MFC 9440N machine so you no longer have the error message: Toner End of Life, do the following:

1. Open the front cover of the 7820N, that is, the cover that allows you to pull out the toner and drum, but don't pull out the drum/toner.
2. Push the button: Options (located on the left of the control pad).
3. Type: *00 on the keypad.

The Brother MFC 9440N should be reset and the Toner End of Life message should disappear. Warning, this may void your warranty and ultimately damage your machine if you are reusing or refilling your cartridges, but you should already know that. Hope this helps.

I replaced the toner for MFC 7840W and I am still gettin the toner life end message, I can not print. Please help


As noted from a previous poster, this one works!

I have a brother mfc 7840w

I first used the electrical tape trick and that worked for a while. Then got the toner low message again. I then tried the *00 trick, which works as follows:

1. lift lid and open front cover
2. press clear/back. "Replace Drum?" will appear on the screen.
3. Press "*00" it will then read accepted and the toner low error (End of Toner Life) should go away.
4. close it all up and your done.

Thanks for all your help guys.

BROTHER MFC 7820N MACHINE PUT IN NEW DRUM, CHANGE DRUM MESSAGE COMES ON. PUT IN NEW TONER, TONER END OF LIFE MESSAGE COMES ON.


To manually reset the counters, do the following:
  • Open front cover, press "option".
  • Answer Yes (by pressing 1) to the question in the display.
  • Your drum counter is now reseted. Press "option" again.
  • This time, press *, 0, 0.
  • Your toner counter is now reseted too.
(If nothing happens when pressing option, try using the back/clear button instead.)

My printer is telling me 'Toner Life End' after I've replaced it.


I was having the same problem with my MFC7820N.  To be honest, I think I got a little lucky poking around with a screwdriver, because the problem seemingly dissapeared.  However, I don't recommend it unless you know what your doing.
I did come across this solution on the internet afterwards though:
Open the front cover of the machine (open the compartment where you insert the toner cartridge)  Wait for "front cover open" to show on the screen.  Press the "Options" button, then press *00 and wait a few seconds, then close the front cover.
This resets something or other, I imagine it will work for you.  Hopefully it does, and if so you're welcome :)
Now, if you can just tell me exactly what is causing my MFC7820N to only have a tiny amount of toner stick to the top right of the page, we'll call it even.

TONER LIFE ENDED


While you have the door open, you have to press some buttons on the menu which will reset the counter. Sorry, I forget what they are right now (it's been a while since I've done it), but you can google and I'm sure you will find it.
