Brother 9460 reset toner

Low toner warning comes on when lots of toner left. How can I either reset or completely defeat this feature? Obviously I will know when toner is low or out when copies end up being too light.

Like most laser printers, the toner light comes on early. This gives you time to order new toner. I find it best, since it does not stop the printer from printing, just to have a toner on hand and when your toner is empty replace it. Since this is a mesurement inside the toner cartridge its self, there is no way to reset the warning (other than replace the cartridge).

SOURCE: Brothers MFC 7420 It says Toner Life End on my LDC

The MFC7420 has sensors that sense when the toner is low. It lets you know in time to purchase another cartridge before you totally run out. If you can get one same day I wouldn't purchase one until the printer pages start fading.

Brother MFC 9440CN Toner Life End Message... The Final Solution


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Having gratefully read elsewhere about how to defeat the toner sensor window with black electrical tape, I went to work.
Sadly, I was crushed to discover that performing this operation did not solve the problem for my accursed unit.
[Do it anyway as it will save you from these annoyingly premature warnings in future!]

Reading further, I became convinced that a reset process similar to that used to solve this problem for the Brother 2040 and 7420 models was also required here.

With nothing more to go on than responses to my emails from the good people (knuckleheads) at Brother telling me only how to install a new cartridge, I began poking around on my own 'till, after much swearing and gnashing of teeth, I figured it out:

1. With power on, open the toner access main door (You will get a "door open" message in the LCD.)
2. Hit the "Clear/Back" button and... ta-dah!!! you go right to the “Toner Reset Menu” (cue Vienna Boy's choir sounds here).
3. Using the up á Down â "Search" arrow buttons you can then scroll through reset options for each of the printer's [4] toner cartridges!
Code: B. = black; C. = cyan; M. = magenta and Y. = yellow
4. For each for these cartridges is the option to reset for low yield = S (small?) or High Yield - H
5. Using the number keypad, select option #1 (to reset each to the size you have installed.
6. Hit the "Clear/Back" button to get out of the menu, close door ad the problem is FINALLY solved.

Additional tip: you might want to try turning on the Toner Save Mode to stretch out your cartridge replacements.
Open Printers > go to the MFC 9440 icon >>> Printing Preferences...> Advanced Settings > Printer Functions > Toner Save Mode >> turn on.
Looks fine to me, though not suggested for grayscale or photo printing,.

Cheers!

Brother MFC 7820N Toner life end with new toner


I found the following post on another site. It appears to work. If you want to reset your Brother MFC 7820N 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 7820N 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 have a Brother MFC-7440N machine. On 7/22/10


The toner cartridges have a small port on the side that the printer uses to check the toner level. Our 7440N tells us it will soon need a new toner cartridge and will then print another 400 copies. Search YouTube for Brother Toner Cartridge and it will show you how to modify the cartridge by covering up the portholes with tape. Since there is obviously some kind of sensor, you might need to get a can of air and clean out any extra toner. Lastly, the Brother cartridges have "reset gears" which are replaced when the cartridges are refilled. You might have a cartridge which the gears were not replaced on.

Low Toner Warning


Turn the unit off. Remove the cartridge and shake it back and forth. Ten place it and turn the unit back on. Also you can reset the counter on the cartridge, go to UNI KIT and look under Brother TN 110 refill support. These people sell refills. The ink you get with he printer is minimal. Also turning the printer off and back on will help with resetting. I found that there is plenty of toner left when the warning comes on.

Low toner/toner empty


Toner cartridges have more then just "toner ink" they also have developer and sometimes a chip that says how many times the cartridge has been used. 
Also some refill places can be a bit dodgy so I know it might not seem like the best thing right now but try buying a real replacement cartridge and if that doesn't do it beg and plead to return it saying it was the wrong model.
If it does fix it then you might have a bad cartridge that either has the "chip" or the cartridge itself is simply worn out and in need of developer as well.

Brother 5240 laser printer changed toner still wont work.


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.
6. Pause.
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.

Low toner warning


Is this an after market toner cartridge? I've had bad ones straight out of the box. Have you replaced one before on this printer? Ray
