SOURCE: Is there a way to reset counter on my Brother

Actually, there is...here are the steps to reset your toner cartridges.

1. Open the front cover of the printer and leave open during steps.
2. Press and hold the "cancel" button and press the "Reprint" button also.
(You can now release both buttons, as you are now in the reset menu)
3. Now it is just a matter of scrolling through the menu (using the + or - keys) to the appropriate cartridge. Once you're at the cartridge you want to reset, just push, "OK" twice, to reset it.
4. Continue scrolling through and reset any cartridges you want.

please rate me :)

SOURCE: brother 8460n - toner error

Hi, This worked for us:

The message "Toner Error" is usually caused by the drum and/or toner
cartridge not being installed properly or if the machine does not
recognize the toner. To clear this message, follow the steps listed
below:

1. Verify you are using Genuine Brother Cartridges. Brother strongly
recommends that you do not refill the toner cartridges provided with
your machine. We also strongly recommend that you continue to use only
Genuine Brother Brand replacement toner cartridges. Use or attempted use
of potentially incompatible tone cartridges in the Brother machine may cause damage to the machine and/or may result in
unsatisfactory print quality. Our warranty coverage does not apply to
any problem that is caused by the use of unauthorized third party toner
and/or cartridges. To protect your investment and obtain premium
performance from the Brother machine, we strongly recommend the use of
Genuine Brother Supplies.

2. Make sure that you are using the correct drum and toner cartridge(s)
for your machine. The part numbers for your model are as follows:
NOTE: Some cartridges can look EXACTLY the same among different models
and will fit the machine even if they are not designed for use in that
model. Verify the part number before using the cartridge(s).

TN550: Toner cartridge (standard)
TN580: Toner cartridge (high yield)
DR520 = Drum unitt.

3. Make sure that the cartridge is not damaged. Remove the toner
cartridge by following the steps listed below:

a. Press the cover release button and then open the front cover.

b. Remove the old drum unit and toner cartridge assembly. Place it on a
drop cloth or disposable paper to avoid scattering toner.
NOTE: Be careful not to spill the toner. If toner gets on your
clothes or hands, wipe or wash it off immediately with cold water.

c. Hold down the blue lock lever on the right and pull the toner
cartridge out of the drum unit.

d. Look at the toner cartridge and see if any parts or pieces appear to
be broken or missing, if so, the cartridge may be defective and should
be replaced.

4. If the toner cartridge is not damaged, reinstall it into the drum
unit. If it was damaged, use a new toner cartridge and reinstall it into
the drum unit.

5. Reset the drum/toner unit into the machine.

6. Close the front cover.

7. If the message "Toner Error' continues to appear on the display
unplug the machine from the wall outlet.

8. Open the front cover and remove the drum and toner assembly.

9. Look inside where the drum was. On the left side wall, look for a
small, black plastic lever/actuator. A flashlight may help see it.

10. Using the palm of your hand, slide it along the left wall in and
out a few times as this may free up the actuator/lever in case it is
stuck. The actuator/lever is spring loaded and needs to move back and
spring forward to operate correctly.

If the lever does not move, spring back or is missing and your machine
is within warranty, you can locate a Brother Authorized Service Center
(ASC) in your area or contact Brother Customer Service by calling
1-877-Brother (1-877-276-8437) Monday through Friday, excluding
holidays. If the machine is out of warranty, you can locate a Brother
Authorized Service Center using the information listed above.

If the lever moves freely and springs back to its original position
continue to Step 11.

11. Reinstall the drum and toner assembly, close the front cover and
plug the machine in.

SOURCE: I have a Brother fax and copy machine and have

You didn't include the model, but here are instructions for the Fax-2820; it should work for any of the models that use the TN-350 toner:

  1. With the power on, open the front cover.
  2. Press the Options key. The display will read "Change Drum?"
  3. Press Start.
  4. Press 1 0.
  5. The display reads "Accepted" for about 2 seconds, then change to "Cover Open."
  6. Close cover. The "Replace toner" message should be cleared.
Normally, inserting a new cartridge (with the power on) will reset the toner counter, and you won't have to do any of this.

My brother HL-2040 Printer is not giving licking sound during startup as well as it also not reading the toner/paper why?


Not sure what you mean by "licking sound during startup"

As for the Toner not reading most often this is caused by the toner cartridge being empty. Try replacing your toner cartridge. If you have recently changed the cartridge it may not have triggered the Toner Reset microswitch. The reset gears on the side of the cartridge will need to be changed back to the ready position. If it is an OEM cartridge then take it back to the place you bought it from and they can replace it and send it back to brother. If it is a remanufactured cartridge then take it back to where you got it from and they can reposition the gears for you.

Not reading the paper can be because there is no paper in the machine or the paper feed system is worn and needs to be replaced.

BROTHER DCP7055 PRINTER SHOWS REPLACE TONER EROR


When replacing the toner cartridge, you MUST install a brand new, unused genuine Brother toner cartridge in order to reset the toner status. Swapping toner cartridges from one machine to another or installing a partially used toner cartridge may cause this problem. Brother machines control their image quality for the most suitable print quality by monitoring toner consumption. If you install a partially used toner cartridge, your Brother machine is unable to recognize toner consumption correctly which will cause this problem. Therefore, when you replace the toner cartridge, please use a brand new toner cartridge, not a partially used toner cartridge from another machine.

My printer has been working just fine, but now the Toner light is on?? I just bought it yesterday!!


I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink or toner cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled (the absolute worst possible choice) or third party cartridges (2nd. Worst possible choice) that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks or toner causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead or photo conductors.
If you are using factory new ink or toner cartridges, then please call the manufacturer’s Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Brother HL5250DN toner light will not go off unable to even print test page, new toner installed and still nothing. Any suggestions? I've tried turning unit off to let it reset, nothing is changing, new...


Is the printer still asking for a new toner..?

If it is the there is a gear that can be reset on the toner cartridge to tell the machine its a new toner cartridge. This is normally done by an engineer, but is quite easy to do if you know how. And I do :0

''TONER LIFE END'' MESSAGE


Toner probably isn't empty, but the machine shuts down at a specifc count on the cartridge regardless of actual consumption...don't you love it?
Your replacement cartridge was probably a remanufactured one and didn't have the toner reset lever properly set.

Toner light is still on


If you put new toner in your used cartridge and you still have the Toner light, you need to reset the "reset gears". Take the cover off of the gear side of the cartridge. The reset gears are actually attached to the inside of the cover. Move the gear with the lever to the opposite side of the current position.
