Question about Brother MFC 7840W Printer
Tried the tape, marker and open screw rewind methods. Nothing works. Ordered new drum cause I either have drum error or toner life end...even put tape over the lamp inside toner walls ...any more suggestions? Can't get the 00 going - mine will only ask replace drum 1. or 2. if I press 1 it sates accepted but that doesn't help...how do you get to the 00?

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.

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.

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.

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.

I just got through this problem, The customer had a "refilled cartridge.
The Flag on the left side near the gearset of the Toner cartridge was not
brought back to the proper position, just undo the three srews and reset the flag.
works like a champ,. your welcome.
