Remove the toner cartridge. Lift up the chrome piece that hold the toner sensor...it's a small black button.

Put a strip of 1/4" X 2" weatherstripping foam underneath.

The sensor is not close enough to the toner cartridge.

Brother printer MFC 7440 N says to replace toner and I already did


Did you insert a brand new toner cartridge or refill only, if you insert a brand new they read your toner cartridge, if you insert a refill toner cartridge, first you need to reset the toner cartridge, i think in the right side, or left please switch and back to normal position.

Screen reads no cartridge when there is a full cartridge in the printer


This is a pretty common item, usually for HP printers however I've also seen this with non-HP printers. They REALLY want you to use genuine HP or Dell ink/toner in their printers since they make lots of money on consumables. That being the case, there is a chip on most original (OEM) toner cartridges that tells the printer that its a genuine cartridge. If you purchase aftermarket/remanufactured/3rd party toner to save a few dollars, they frequently don't have these chips, however other than that they work just fine.
If you have purchased a Staples/Office Max or some other non Dell branded toner, that's likely what happened. My suggestion is to live with this minor annoyance and just wait until the print begins to get lighter in color. THAT will be your indication that its about time to change the toner.
If you get this same issue with a new Dell branded toner, then you may want to try to find this chip and use a pencil eraser to carefully clean the electrical contacts on the toner cartridge. That may help the printer read the cartridge chip easier.
Hope this helps! Best of luck!

I am trying to reset my toner. i am getting a toner replace message after i have replaced the cartridge with a brand new one from brother.i've tried opening the cover, hitting clear and then *00 and...


You dont say what model it is but in 90% of cases with the brother printer, it is the fault of the toner cartridge. I am presuming that the toner cartridge you put in was a generic brand. On the left hand side of the toner cartridge there is a counter reset lever that needs to be in the correct position to reset the printer. You can either return the toner cartridge and request another or try to reposition the lever & gearing by taking off the left cover.

ERROR CODE 041 ON PANAFAX


There is a fix for this. But only a Panasonic tech has access to the parts for the fix. The toner sensor underneath must be moved closer to the cartridge, you are not low on toner.

Our dx-800 reads OUT OF TONER INFO CODE = 041. We have replaced the toner several times. This was intermitant over the last month. We would unplug and repower and it would go away for a while.


Toner sensor holder kit (The silver part in center, directly below the toner) needs to be replaced by an authorized Panasonic repair center. Call Panasonic for one in your area.

The part should cost no more than $30-50. takes 5-10 minutes to replace. Most service places charge minimum 1 hour fee and possibly travel fees. so you are looking at $125-250 repair bill.

If the unit is out of warranty, Panasonic won't do it for free.

I have replaced the sensor kits on numerous DX-800 and it basically avoids displaying the toner errors, and you replace when print becomes light...the good old fashioned way.

Wrong cartridge 093-982 cyan toner unsupported


are you using a dell-branded toner cartridge? if yes, then you should replace the toner cartridge sensor and machine control unit (MCU). if no, you can enable the non-dell toner mode on your printer's operator panel. how? press menu, down until "configure" & press select; down until "maintenance" & press select; down until "non-dell toner" & press select; down until "on" & press select.

There is no setting on the 1710 printer to clear the error of a non Dell branded toner being inserted. Some higher end Dell printers do have a setting for Non-Dell branded toner. Not all Dell printers have this setting. Resetting the drum count will have no effect on a non dell branded toner error.

I have a brother HL 2040 laser printer. The toner and drum light were lit, so I replaced both the drum and the toner cartridge, but the toner light remains on. I have tried everything, but the toner...


Two things I could suggest you check. First, make sure you have removed all packing from the drum and toner. Sometimes there is a plastic strip on the toner that has to be removed before installation. Also, make sure you are using a Brother brand toner. Some generic brands do not replace the chip in the cartridge and they will not work,

Pages full of toner / toner streaking


First off, this is a comment from a random person who may or may not know ALOT about these printers and toner/printer design in general. All toners are not designed to the same specification. Toner is a combination of plastic "pigment" and iron like shavings to make it magentically attracted to the electrical charges within the unit. Different toners conform to different grades and mainly size of the particles within the blend. The manufacturer doesnt only recommend that you use their toner to make them money, yes of course it makes money, but its because when the unit is designed it is designed to use a certain grade of toner, trust me if you put the non-branded toner vs the branded toner under a microscope you would see quite a difference. Often the non-branded toner is much larger in particle size (obviousely because its cheaper to make at this spec). This causes a variety of issues from excess toner not being cleaned off of developer rollers, IDT rollers, or clogging of toner dispenser tubes in the unit and the micro filters contained at the toner dispenser assy and developer assys. Also as for the issue not changing when switching to dell branded toner - the dispenser tubes within this unit contain up to 500-1000 pages worth of toner, making no change in toner you make immediately visible. Also depending on the damage caused by the previous toner, it may not be able to be fixed until all the components in between the toner and final delivery (drum cart) are replaced. In this case more than likely the toner dispenser assy, all developer assy's, and drum cartridge need to be replaced, and than be sure to stick with factory branded toner :)
