I got exactly the same problem and the "reset" didn't do anything.
I fixed it by putting a piece of duck tape on magic eye on the cartridge.
Fallow those step to do the same thing as me:

On the brother printers, the fuser is often attached to the toner (they come out as one piece). If you look at the old toner, you will probably notice that it is longer than the new one. The extra piece that makes is longer needs to be taken off of the old toner and attached to the new one.

I found this solution on the web-- Hope it helps.
The HL-2070N gets stuck in a toner end-of-life error condition. Perform the following to clear :
With paper loaded, new toner in,
Open front door
Turn off printer
While holding down the GO button, turn printer back on
When all four LEDs light up release GO button. All LEDs will turn off
Press the GO button 2 times. The 3 LEDs (toner, drum, paper) will light up solid
Press the GO button 5 times
Paper light will be blinking
At this point the toner end-of-life condition has been reset. Close front door.
BTW, I got this from Brother Support. Also, just a reminder, timing is important here so don't pause between button presses.
