1. Turn your Brother off

2. Open the front cover of the printer

3. Press and hold Go and turn power on. Do not let the button go.

4. When all 3 lights light up, release the Go button.

5. Press the Go button twice (You will see the Ready light blink green every time you press the Go button)

6. All of the lights will light up

7. With all of the lights on, press and release the Go button 5 times (You will see the Ready light blink green every time you press the Go button)

8. The Error light will start blinking (Don't be alarmed. This is expected.)

9. Close door and wait. The printer will cycle through and make the sound it makes when you initially cut it on. After that sound stops, your green Ready light will be on and solid.

10. You are now ready to print.

Hope It's resolve all Your Printer Problem,

SOURCE: Error reading on Toner not correct

Probably just like other Brother printers. It is an optical device, sending light through a window in the toner cassette and sensing the amount of light that gets through. High light throughput in this circuit = toner low.

this message normally indicates a physical problem somewhere on the machine, try turning it off for a couple of minutes then back on. if it keeps giving you this message it should at least give you the error number as well

SOURCE: MFC-9440 CN Laser Printer is producing vertical color line streak

Colored vertical streaks - looks like a transfer belt problem, and it's not user fixable. You may need a new belt unit - you can find it for around US$ 80-120, but you may want to have a technician inspect the unit first, since it could arguably be the drum instead, and you don't want to fork around US$ 100 and replace the wrong part.
You can try showing a printer sample at a print shop; by looking at the streaks it is possible to diagnose drum, fuser or belt problems.
Here you find a much more detailed page, for another printer model, but the issues are mainly the same for most color printers:

SOURCE: Brother MFC 7820N, I am getting "Toner End Life"

I fail to see why you are covering up the toner sensor led's when you have a new cartridge fitted?
Also if you are using a recycled toner from a very well known uk shop that refills toners and ink then you may well have broken the drive gear that stirs the toner. i have seen this six times and their toners do this.
It could well be one of the pitfuls of recycled toners.

I have a Brother Laser Printer HL-5350DN. I refill toner myself but the toner light will not go out. How do I reset it so it goes off?


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.

Can i refill tonner on MFC- 9440 CN laser printer


You can, but it a dirty job. I would not recommend it as the toner powder is very fine and you don't want to breath in this toner powder.
If you don't want to purchase a new toner cartridge, then I recommend you buy a re-manufactured toner cartridge for your model printer. They cheaper than the new Brother toner cartridges and usually contain more toner and the drum cartridge components have been refurbished.

Black dots on printed page from Brother 9440 color laser printer


The problem lies with the black toner cartridge. This is a common problem in these machines due to poor design by Brother. Best solution is to replace the offending color toner cartridge.

Toner life end


Try this:

Open the cover, leaving everything inside. Press Options, then *00 to reset the fax.

If that doesn't work:

Open the front cover and remove the cartridge and drum. Turn off the fax. On the right-hand side of the cartridge, there is a round hole that is covered with a clear plastic or glass. Cover that hole up with tape, put the cartridge back in the drum, and put them back into the fax, and turn it back on.
