You will need to reset the Flag gear. This is situated at the other end of the cartridge to the refill hopper. There are 3 screws that you must undo first, you will notice a small white flag gear, this needs to be turned back to the beginning of the curved section. After removing the screws, CAREFULLY remove the end plate and pull the flag gear out slightly and return it to the beginning position, which is the other end of the curved section. Put your cartridge back together again..Your printer will now accept this refilled cartridge

Q: Brother printer toner refill.?
A: yes and no. it is easy to fill the toner but if it is the original toner which came with the printer, they deliberately leave out a $4 starter gear which is needed to regulate the amount of charge going to the drum. Without this gear, the copies will come out too light and be nearly useless. I threw out two of these printers until I came across Northbay Toner who explained this to me and provided what I needed. I now have two Brother lasers working well on $5 refills. For more info, see http://ccs-digital.com/northbay.html

When it says "Empty Toner - Stop" Click the right arrow at the circle and it should say "Empty Toner - Continue" hit ok and you should be good. You will have to do this each time that you turn the printer on or pull a cartridge out.
