For Brother MFC-7340:
Open the toner cartridge door, press the "Clear/Back" button on the keypad, then on the number pad press *00 and close the cartridge door.
This worked for me.
For another Brother model the solution was to open the door, go to "Options" under the "Copy" menu, then press *00 and close the door.

MY PROBLEM IS SO SIMPLE THE SCREEEN SAYS (TONER LIFE END)--->REPLACE (Y) AND (M) :SSSSSS


Remove the "end-of-life" toner-cartridge, and responsibly recycle it.
Insert a new toner-cartridge.
Click 'Y' for "yes".

I am changing the ink cartridge i put the new one in and it keeps saying End of life and it has a new cartridge what do i do


Here is the solution that will reset the count and allow your fully functional toner cartridge (the one the printer tells you is empty) to continue to work.

Open the front cover.
Press options button.
Press the start button.
Press + or up arrow button 10 times.
Press set button.

You have to do this with a long pause or the system will reset and you will have to start over.

Good luck.

Toner Life End message on DCP-7040


If your cartridge has a lever on the left side near the rear, it needs to be reset, and there's a lever inside on the left that can stick and cause that error. You need to wiggle and pull that lever until it moves freely again.

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.

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 ends


There are two units in the machine, a toner cartridge and a drum unit. The toner clips into the drum and then is inserted in the machine. If you changed the toner and you still get this message, you may have a bad or damaged toner detection sensor.

Change of toner


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.
