Question about Brother MFC-7220 All-In-One Laser Printer
I have been successfully refilling Brother TN-2025 cartridges but now my MFC-7220 will not recognise the refilled cartridge. Cartridge has been refilled once only. Any suggestions? Email: [email protected] Thanks. John.
OK.. I agree that your problem is with the flag gear. However, there is a specific location in which it needs to be situated. The purpose of the flag gear is to trip a reset actuator on the left side of the printer. The correct position of the flag gear needs to be set so the reset actuator is depressed 3/4 of the way AND where the flag gear moves out of the way once this is done. If the flag gear is moved all the way forward, you run a risk of the gear mechanism inside not rotating it out of the way...which could leave you with a 'no cartridge installed' message. When the manufacturer of the toner cartridge made this unit, they decided to put a mark on the side to, evidently, let the assembly team know where to set the flag gear. Great for us :) On the outside plastic piece that you have to remove to get to the flag gear, you will see a diagonal line and a view window. When you rotate the flag gear, you will eventually see a portion of the white gear in that view window. Line up the white gear portion with the bottom of the diagonal line (typically two gear teeth), and you're done. Assemble and run!

You will need to reset the Flag gear. This is situated at the other end of the cartridge to the refill hopper. There are 3 screws that you must undo first, you will notice a small white flag gear, this needs to be turned back to the beginning of the curved section. After removing the screws, CAREFULLY remove the end plate and pull the flag gear out slightly and return it to the beginning position, which is the other end of the curved section. Put your cartridge back together again..Your printer will now accept this refilled cartridge
