Question about Brother IntelliFAX 4100 Laser Fax
I have a brother 4100e that prints faded prints, much like the ones that occur when you run out of toner, except that I've replaced 3 toners(new OEM) and 2 drums(also OEM) the prints are exactly the same with all 3 toners. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance for your help.

On the side of the toner in a white lever. With a flat blade screw driver push the lever back to the other side of it location. This will give the machine a perception of a new toner. Be careful of the gears when pushing it back! Not a 100% on what causes this issue but thats my manual reset of the toner for when it does.
In falling this the reset actuator inside the machine has probem (Spring missing or is sticky)

with machine on, open front cover, press the "options" button, you should see "replace drum?" press the "start" key then 1 then 0. display should show accepted for a couple of secs. then show cover open. close front cover and message should be gone. if not, you will have to contact Brother.

try opening front door, press "options" then "start" then "1" and "0". if screen shows accepted, you're good to go. close front cover.

Drum counter is reset by installing a new drum which contains a specifically designed "starter sheet" that is passed through the machine when it is installed, and triggers the paper sensors in a specific pattern, resetting the electronic counter.
If you have installed a new drum and the message remains......I suspect that it was a remanufactured unit that did not include the "starter sheet" Is that the case?

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.
