    There does not appear to be a "clear" button

    The only instructions is to clean the drum unit wire using the slider key. The toner is genuin Brother and I have shaken the toner. There is no RESET and holding down the START did not work.

    I've heard of this problem before. maybe it's RESET OR START.



    I thought instructions came in the drum box.

Tip

Toner life end message


If printer displays "Toner Life End" after installing new cartridge, open front cover, press 'Option' button, then key *00 on the keypad. This resets the device so it knows it has had a new cartridge.

"Toner Life End" with new cartridge in place


take out the toner form the drum, on the left side of the toner there is a white tab sat in a half circle type cut out. it should be located at its far right position, carefully push it anti clockwise until it stops, may need a screwdriver to start it moving as its a bit stiff.
put it back in the drum and give it a try

Had toner life end message. Replaced toner and drum with oem,machine reset but now just making blank copies. Tried to print internal report that's blank too


To reset the sensor after installing a new toner cartridge follow these steps.
1. With unit powered On, open the front cover.
2. Press the "Options" key. Display will show "Replace Drum?"
3. Press "Start" key.
4. Press 1,0 .
5. Display will show "Accepted" for approximately 2 seconds. Then display will change to "Cover Open".
6. Close cover and see if Toner Life End error message has gone.
Please note that this must be done with a new cartridge so the unit will see that there is toner in the cartridge.

Brother Intellifax 2820 I keep getting a end toner life message after replacing cartridge


Make sure the machine is not in direct sunlight as the toner end sensor is photo-optic. If it's an after market toner or refill...good luck with that. Lastly remove the toner tap on top of it and shake it from side to side and reinstall. The toner may be caked up inside,

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.

Toner life end


There is no reset code the likely thing is that you have a faulty toner cartridge. Put another new one in and check the machine then.

Before you try the above shake the toner cartridge and tap it some more as it may also be the toner inside have become solid and needs breaking up.


Hope one of the above works for you
Thanks J
