How to change laser printhead

Laser printers do not use a printhead.
When the toner runs out you need to get a new toner cartridge which includes the print drum.
You lift up the cover to reveal the toner cartridge, grab the cartridge and pull it out towards the front of the printer.
Reverse this procedure to insert the new toner cartridge.

"No Paper: error on Brother 8870DW

Hi ccswjk,

I have encountered this error before.
Printers have a sensor on the trays to detect the level of the paper in the tray. First try fanning the paper that you have in there. At time when the printer try to feed a paper and it has a hard time picking the paper up, it may display the no paper error message. Fanning makes the sheets of paper separate from each other making the paper pickup and feed process easier for the printer. And if there are adjustable levers around the paper in the tray, make sure they are snug around it. This helps the printer identify the paper size that's in the tray.

I hope that this solution I have provided you is as simple as what I have encountered. If not, the following link is the user's manual for the printer that you have.

Page 19 contains the No error message troubleshooting, aside from what I already have provided above.

Resetting "Replace PF Kit 1" message

Same with me on my MFC 8870DW. The procedure worked perfectly:

1) Turn off printer
2) Press and hold menu button and turn on. Keep holding button until you see maintenance on display.
3) Press 88. This brings up parts replacement menu.
4) Press Up arrow until you see the part you replaced (laser, fuser, pf kit1, pf kit mp).
5) Press the OK button.
6) Power off and restart printer.

But how do I know whether or not I really NEED to replace a PF Kit1? I guess I'll find out if it recurs soon.
