How to resent toner counter of Brother HL-2040 printer

These instructions show two ways to reset the toner count ( to install a used toner in printer or get more life out of a cartridge the printer says is empty)

please note that using refilled toner cartridges, non genuine toners and using the 'extra' 10% all have been shown to reduce drum life and prematurely degrade print quality.

you may need these techniques though if you have tried a new toner in a machine to diagnose and then want to install it in another machine.

The first method is to reset the mechanical flag on the left hand end of the toner cartridge. when you first install a toner the printer turns the toner drive gear which moves this flag from the back to the forward position (towards the toner roller).
the flag is the white rectangular bit pointed out by the yellow arrow in the photo
In this photo the position of the flag shows that this cartridge has been previously installed in a printer.
you can undo three screws (red arrows in photo) and reposition the flag in the start position.
be careful to observe the way the gears are installed.
one technician I know just used a flat blade screwdriver to force the flag back to its home position ( to the right) without undoing the screws. seemed to work for him.

the second method is to
1. open the toner door
2. turn printer off
3. hold down go button
4. turn on power while holding go
5. hold down go button for 4-5 seconds untill all lights come on and one goes out
6. press go twice then wait 2 seconds
press go 5 times

printer should power cycle and show itself as ready

I had a jam, upon clearing the jam, the printer will hang with the motor turning, and the display saing 'adding toner'. I changed the (new) toner, for a brand new one. Still message will not go away.

Leave the machine working to see the next message of Adding Toner. Usually the next message of "Adding Toner" is "Ready to Copy".
If the next message is "Add Toner", i suggest you to pull the new toner kit out and push it a little bit harder and check again.
If you power the machine off and on again, can you see what the message about toner is, Original or Unknown Toner is installed?

AP still showing

"AP" stands for Agitation in Process", it appears in the copy quantity display when toner is being replenished inside of the copier. Wait a few minutes..this happens after continuously copying for long periods, or copying dense things like photos. Sometimes it will occur after running the machine when it is out of toner. replace toner and turn on/off a few times to "agitate toner. Don't worry about the scan lamp being lit while this is happening, it will go out.
