SOURCE: MFC 8460N giving Toner Life End message

I just solved my own problem. Try it for yours. I had been using several compatible toners for the MFC-8460N with no problems until today, as I posted earlier. On a hunch, I went to the local office supply store and purchased one original Brothers TN550 toner and put it into the printer and closed the cover. Everything clicked. Toner End Life message gone. I then took that Brother toner out and put the compatible one back in and still everything was fine. Am keeping the original Brother toner as a "kickstarter" if it happens again.

SOURCE: Brother Printer won't accept mostly full toner cartridge

On the side of the cartridge (TN2000) there is a white reset flag, this need to set to twevle 'o' clock, thats towards the black roller. If that hasn't been reset the cartridge will register as low.

SOURCE: Brother 4070 Printer will not recognize new toner cartridge

Hi

Just cover the eyes (on both sides) that you can see in the bottom of the machine after removing the imaging cartrige with a small piece of electrical tape.

With printer switched on push the switch which is located inside the upper left side of printer (it is a small white switch) and then release it. 


Also try resetting the gear, take the cartridge out. On the gear side take off 2 screws, the black gear on top right side, with a small spring underneath. Just take it off and reset it (rotate clockwise) so it is not at the stopping point.

Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

SOURCE: how to get ride of Toner life end message

You could try resetting the toner cartridge settings. OPen the machines front door where you would replace the cartridges. On the top panel you will see a "clear/back" button. Press it and on the display you will see a reset menu come up. Arrow to each one and hit the OK button. Press "1" to reset. Once you have gone through all close the front door of the machine and press stop to bring the display back to normal.

Hope this helps.

Error message "put the black toner cartridge back in"


I got this same error message on a newly acquired Brother DCP-7040 that I purchased used off of ebay.

As I was troubleshooting this unit (that I bought untested off of ebay - hey gambling has paid off handsomely for me many times before!), this error message kept popping up.

I checked the COUNTERS (page & Drum life) and found out that the DRUM had 0% life left. BUT, the reason it showed ZERO was because this unit did not have any drum! The toner cartridge (TN-360) needs to sit WITHIN the drum (DR-360) on this DCP-7040 unit, as well as in models DCP-7030, MFC-7340, MFC-7345C, and MFC-7440N.

So perhaps some of these "put the black toner cartridge back in" problems could be related to the DRUM (or lack thereof). A possible tipoff (since the toner cartridge actually does slide into the unit much like other units that do not use Brother's DRUM carrier) seems to be the relative ease with which the toner cartridge slides into the DCP-7040 and really doesn't seem to "lock" into position real firmly.

How to extend the life of a TN-330 drum kit for MFC-7840W Wireless Printer


If you have received any of the following messages on your Brother MFC-7840W wireless multifunction printer while utilizing the TN-330 drum kit then you may not have to replace your drum, at least not yet.

Drum End Soon
Drum Error
Toner Life End
Toner Low

I had this issue happen to me about 150 pages ago (some text, some pictures) and I still haven't replaced my drum after I executed this little trick.

Take your drum kit out of your printer (make sure you turn off and unplug any cables first)

Take some black electrical tape and cut a inch by inch square off.

Place the black tape over the optical port as shown in the picture below.

Then put the drum back into the printer, cable everything back up and turn the power on.

Your drum should last a long time beyond what was supposed to be a low toner.

Hopes this saves you some money.

BROTHER-MFC7430 Toner life end


actually, you dont' really need to replace your drum, your drum actually is good for 5-6 years.
you just need to clean up the drum with duster and put that back into the machine.
when reset the drum, you just need to open the front cover and press Clear buttom then 1.
after that the whole thing will be reset and ready to go for it.

MFC-7840w keeps saying "toner life end"


After I figured this out, it was quite easy to resolve. Remove the toner cartridge from the drum cartridge. Remove the black plastic cover on the left side of the toner cartridge (3 Phillips screws). There is a "flag", which is a small plastic tab on the outer side set to the right at about 2 o'clock. Turn the gears until you fully reset the tab going counterclockwise to the 10 o'clock position (fully to the left). Reinstall the small black cover and the three phillips screws. And the idea to install black electrical tape over the small clear plastic windows on both sides is also a good idea to prevent the early and false message that the cartridge is empty. Make sure you do not allow that tape to get into the gears.

Brother MCF-7340 first time toner replacement


If this model comes with the drum separately of the cartridge, only replace the cartridge. There's no need to change it every time. until prints start to get lines or dots. Don't expose the drum to light too much.

We replaced the toner and it is still saying "toner life end replace toner cartridge." and we can't get it to print or fax or copy


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.

Dcp 7020 and 7040 toner life end message premature, need override


When the Toner Life End LED flips on, requires you to replace the cartridge, even when there's still toner left in the cartridge. The machine detects end of life by shining a light through from one side to the other.
To circumvent the detection mechanism, remove the cartridge and put a piece of masking tape over or jam a little bit of paper into the clear opening/circle on the right side of the toner cartridge, and then pop the cartridge back in. Eventually, you'll start seeing streaks, and then you'll know that the cartridge is truly empty.

Toner life end


Try this:

Open the cover, leaving everything inside. Press Options, then *00 to reset the fax.

If that doesn't work:

Open the front cover and remove the cartridge and drum. Turn off the fax. On the right-hand side of the cartridge, there is a round hole that is covered with a clear plastic or glass. Cover that hole up with tape, put the cartridge back in the drum, and put them back into the fax, and turn it back on.

Make sure that you are not using generic supplies. Using generic supplies or supplies that have been refilled will cause the unit to give false errors. There is white piece of plastic inside the semi circular opening, if you do not see a white semi circular opening it is either a generic toner or starter toner and you will need to replace the toner with a authentic toner. You may try this also: 1. Remove the drum and toner, separate the drum and toner and then rock the toner from side to side. 2 Put the drum and toner back together and clean the corona wire ten times. 3 Put the drum and toner back inside the machine and close the cover, if you still have toner life end try this: a Open the front cover b press the options key, the LCD will say "replace drum?" c press the start key. and then press 10 on your dial pad. the display should say accepted for about 2 seconds and then say cover open. d close the cover, if the display still has toner life end, you will need to replace the toner
