Reset counter brother printer hl-6180dw

By 'Counter' do you mean Toner Counter or Drum Counter?

For Toner Counter - This is done by the gear on the side of the cartridge. The gear when looking at it travels counter clockwise lifting outwards as it passes over a mount in the fill cap. Starter Cartridges do not have the gear in place and this needs to be put in when refilling the cartridge.

For Drum Counter - Have the front of the machine open (As if changing the cartridge) and press the Go button on the machine till the display reads Drum Changed or Drum Accepted.
If it requires you to press the back button then it will have a message "Change Drum" with an up arrow and down arrow for yes and no.

Show that ink is finished , but it's not .

Printer "read" ink level counter, not ink level actually. Refillable ink tank read as empty ink. Two methods to resolve this. Reset ink level counter using software. Or disable ink level counter reading.

Error 990

sc990 is a general software error and could be caused by a number of things.

Is the copier very dirty, or are the PM (preventive maintenance) parts past their recommended counters? The copier may just need some new process parts (drum, charge roller, developer, etc.) and a good cleaning.

Does the 990 happen when you are printing or scanning? It could be an error with how the machine interfaces with your network.

Or, it may be a system firmware issue and the firmware needs to be updated or flashed.

I changed the drum but it still reads drum error and i am not receiving faxes. There is a ring so the connections are working. I cant get in to the area where it reads drum set.

Need to know Make and model to be sure.
However, many new machines reset the drum counter by blowing a fuse in the drum cartridge or by recoginition of a new chip in the cartridge. Some require a "Service code" access to reset counter after the drum has been replaced. Need specifics to be more help.

Printer not printing. Error message reads see your documentation may need service

Counter reach its preconfigured limit it is just, you have to reset the counter back to zero count. This feature could be attributed not to overflow the waste bin.

In your web browser search bar, key in " epson reset software" the uppermost link is the one. Read the tutorial before doing so.

Hope you get it easily.

How to read the meter on Cannon Copier

Yes, that is the correct counter of the copier. If you are doubting it, you can look at the bottom right of that display and confirm that the serial number is the same as on the back cover of the copier and also, it well tell you the model of the copier aswell. It is kind of hard to fake the meter or change it to a lower amount. To do it you need to change 3 PCB's from another copier & it is more work to bother with.

The mfc9440cn i have is continuly saying that the belt unit and the drum need to be changed even though they have both been changed recently. Is this a problem with the printer or the belt unit/drum?

You probably need to reset the counter on the parts life. Depending on the machine you have - you can do a parts life check - but it will always read 0 part life left, if you haven't reset the counter...
