SOURCE: Toner end life message

i solved the brother mfc8860 toner life end problem
hi guys my name is reedwaan. Im new at this site so please listen up 
my brother toner i refilled with toner and inserted it. It said toner life end then i patched the windows close on the sides and still the same problem, then i removed the toner and loosened the two screws on the left by the gears then removed the cover of the gears. 
Right at the back there is a funny looking gear with a spring behind it. All you have to do is pull the spring a little bit clockwise and push the gear back on hooking the spring into it so that the gear is spring loaded. close it up then test it, It took me a while to figure it out but i got it right. 
NB*  The gear that you push on, is the toner reset gear and when you push it on make sure the teeth dont interlock with the second gear on the left of it. If you have any queries mail me on reedwaan@yahoo.com 
glad to help out

SOURCE: NG: Poor Line Condition / Out Of Memory

This problem could be Phone line problem, or hardware failure or receiver's (the machine of the person whom you are sending the fax) machine problem and so on. First, let's check the line, if you have another Phone line, please dial from the number to your number, also, connect the currently connected line to a receiver and call a Land-line number, if the outgoing or incoming is ok, the proceed forward, otherwise, you telephone operator should check the line.

Sometimes, sending fax to a particular number doesn't work, to make sure, try sending a fax to another number.

If the line which is connected to the machine is extended from another machine such as Receiver, Switch, etc... unplug them and connect the fax machine directly to the Line.

It's also important to adjust the compatibility mode, to do this, follow the steps below:

  • Press Menu.
  • Press the up or down arrow key to select Fax.
  • Press OK.
  • Press the up or down arrow key to select Miscellaneous.
  • Press OK.
  • Press the up or down arrow key to select Compatibility.
  • Press the left or right arrow key to select Basic (for VoIP).
  • Press OK.
  • Press Stop/Exit.

If you place the scanning document/file on the auto-sheet feeder, you can help it pulling inside the passage or you can use the glass (flatbed) instead. Sometimes, this small mistakes with the sheet-feeder creates this problem. You can also clean the rollers inside the ADF (auto document feeder) passage.


If all of the above measure don't help, I would suggest you to call brother and seek their help. The rest is with mechanical or we can say hardware or firmware related issue. (use this form to contact Brother)

I wish you good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Reset brother toner counter mfC 7360N


If you are using refilled products then your re-manufacturer needs to reset the cartridge. For these there is a particular gear placement to allow the toner sensor to reset. If you are using Brother Original products then the brother helpdesk should talk you through this.
If you are filling your own cartridges well any issues you have with this reset process are at your own risk.
Once you have completed the reset process go to the brother website and download the latest firmware update for your machine as this will alleviate most of the issues with cartridges not being correctly set.

/* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-style-parent:""; font-:10.0pt;"Times New Roman";}
  1. Open Front Cover.
  2. Display reads "Front Cover Open"
  3. Press the 'Clear' button
  4. Display reads "Replace Drum"
  5. DO NOT RESPOND TO THIS MESSAGE. Press '*, 0, 0' on the keypad.
  6. Press 'OK'
  7. Close Front Cover.
your machine should now be ready to print.

I have a Brother fax and copy machine and have just replaced toner with a brother TN 350 cartridge and still getting message that toner is low


You didn't include the model, but here are instructions for the Fax-2820; it should work for any of the models that use the TN-350 toner:
  1. With the power on, open the front cover.
  2. Press the Options key. The display will read "Change Drum?"
  3. Press Start.
  4. Press 1 0.
  5. The display reads "Accepted" for about 2 seconds, then change to "Cover Open."
  6. Close cover. The "Replace toner" message should be cleared.
Normally, inserting a new cartridge (with the power on) will reset the toner counter, and you won't have to do any of this.

Changed the Toner in Fax Machine and Still reads "Low Toner"


First, the obvious
  • Did you gently rock the toner cartridge from side to side to evenly distribute the toner?
  • Did the cartridge "click" into place?(did lock lever pop up when it was inserted)
  • Did you replace the protective cover securely?
Another thing to check is cleaning the Corona wire inside by sliding the Blue tab back and forth several times. Important to return the Blue tab back to the "Home" position afterward.
If you've done ALL of these steps correctly, and the low toner message is still there, a service call is in order. Best of luck with your machine!

Brother MFC 8860DN Toner End Life Error


Open the door where the toner goes. Press the 'back' button. Press *00. Do not respond to the query about the drum. Close the door. Other models may have to press the 'Options' button located near 'Copy'. This should work.

No what u have is that you need to also replace the Drum. That is why the light is reading low toner still.
