If it is the there is a gear that can be reset on the toner cartridge to tell the machine its a new toner cartridge. This is normally done by an engineer, but is quite easy to do if you know how. And I do :0

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.
There is a reset gear in the cartridge that needs to be "reset" or replaced. I've included a link to a PDF file that goes over the procedure to properly refill and reset the toner cartridge. This is a document that is used by a company that does a complete rebuild, so you probably won't need most of the information, just the part on resetting the reset gear.
Toner Blinking yellow LED indicates that the toner cartridge is nearly empty. Buy a new toner cartridge or refill the cartridge. Refilling the TN cartridges is quite simple and you can do it yourself. It is a very simple process. Please refer to this video.
Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Good Luck! Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help! CreativeTECH
You don't. I own and operate a printer cartridge refilling shop and we don't offer refills for new Brother color lasers becuase there is not a quality toner available, even to us! Besides that hindrance, the way Brother cartridges work they need (should) be cleaned of used toner before refilling. These cartridges "recycle" their waste toner which can degrade print quality if not removed. It is possible to vacuum the toner, but keep in mind it can be explosive when aerosolized. If you do choose to vacuum at home be sure your vacuum has HEPA filtration BEFORE THE MOTOR. The spark from the brushes in the motor can ignite the toner.
Yeah you can refill your cartridge. It is really easy and consists of removing the plug on the side of the cartridge, dumping out any old toner and dumping in the new toner. Its very easy. I have purchased refill kits from both of these sites in the past and its worked great:
They also have great customer service. I hope this helps!
The toner sensor where the cartridge is loaded is fouled or you refilled this cartridge and the printer does not reconise the toner inside and thinks its empty ether or sensor or refilled cartridge the printer thiks there is no toner.
1. Did you refill the toner?
2. Brand new cartridge > take it back to the retailer if that does not work the printer will need repair.

If you just want to REPLACE the toner cartridge, open the front door and jiggle the combined toner & drum units out. push down on a blue tab on the side to release the TN-350 toner cartridge and lift it out of the DR-350 drum cartridge.
If you have the toner cartridge out and want to refill it you7rself, DON'T. You can buy toner with about the right size grains, but Brother uses toner with grains that are much smoother and rounder than that aftermarket stuff. The toner is constantly stirred during the print process, and the rough-grained aftermarket toner puts up so much resistance that it often breaks a gear in the body of your MFC. Brother usually doesn't cover that one in their warranty.
Your not resetting the toner reset lever. It's on the left end (not the fill cap side) of the cartridge. If you have a resettable cartridge on the left end you will see to white pieces. One round and one like a lever in a half moon slot. We will be addressing the lever in the half moon slot only. The lever on a used cartridge will be at the 3 O'clock position. Remove the two screws from the end cap and then move the gear to the 11 O'clock position. Put the end cap and screwss back on. Put it back in the printer and close the door. When the printer powers up it will sweep the lever across the sensor and reset the toner level to full.
Hope that helps you.
When refilling, make sure you dump out and clean ALL OF THE OLD TONER from the cartridge before refilling. Brother reuses it's old toner putting it back into the fresh toner supply (along with debri) and slowly contaminates it's supply with paper dust and talc from the paper.
If you don't clean out the supply hopper well before refilling, it will quickly mix your new toner with the old toner and more quickly contaminate the entire supply. USE GOOD PAPER, NOT CHEAP PAPER and your supplies and refills will last much longer.
