I just solved my own problem. Try it for yours. I had been using several compatible toners for the MFC-8460N with no problems until today, as I posted earlier. On a hunch, I went to the local office supply store and purchased one original Brothers TN550 toner and put it into the printer and closed the cover. Everything clicked. Toner End Life message gone. I then took that Brother toner out and put the compatible one back in and still everything was fine. Am keeping the original Brother toner as a "kickstarter" if it happens again.

The problem with a new toner cartridge that will not signal the printer that it has been changed has to do with a gear positioned wrong on the new or rebuilt cartridge... we had 3 factory brand new toners that would not clear the replace the toner message... I finally found the following link that came from a toner company that sells refills that tells how to reposition the gear to let the machine know a new cartridge has been installed. I did the proceedure on pages 5 & 6 having to reposition the gear and all cartidges then worked flawless... it works.

Try resetting the toner counter manually;
* Turn off the printer and open the front cover
* Press and hold the Go-button down
* Turn on the machine while still holding button down, when all three LEDs are lit, release Go-button
* Press the Go-button twice, and all three LEDs should be lit again.
* Press the Go-button five times (six times if you have the High Yield toner)
* Close the front cover and the toner counter should be resetted.

You could try resetting the toner cartridge settings. OPen the machines front door where you would replace the cartridges. On the top panel you will see a "clear/back" button. Press it and on the display you will see a reset menu come up. Arrow to each one and hit the OK button. Press "1" to reset. Once you have gone through all close the front door of the machine and press stop to bring the display back to normal.
Hope this helps.

press Clear/Back key
Do not choose anything for drum replacement. when drum replacement menu comes up, just press the * and then 00, then just press OK.
that should clear the error message, the printer has a toner life counter that needs to be reset.
