Question about Brother IntelliFax-2820 Laser Fax
I just replaced the drum unit with a new one, and now, everytime I turn it on, the toner life end message comes out. I just replaced the toner with a new one, and the message's still there
I spoke with Brother and one of the options was to open the cover, push options, push start, and then 1, then 1 again. If accept comes up, select. Then close cover and try again.

On the side of the toner in a white lever. With a flat blade screw driver push the lever back to the other side of it location. This will give the machine a perception of a new toner. Be careful of the gears when pushing it back! Not a 100% on what causes this issue but thats my manual reset of the toner for when it does.
In falling this the reset actuator inside the machine has probem (Spring missing or is sticky)

Well based on what I just did, Open cover> it immediately prompted question - Replace Drum Unit:
1. Yes 2. No
I hit 1.
It says Accepted
It said please wait when I closed the cover.
I then checked the drum unit life = 100% woot

CONNIE@RSHTRUCK.COM REATTACH THE SPRING INSIDE THE MACHINE ITSELF ON THE LEFT TO THE WHITE PLASTIC ARM IN FRONT OF IT. I USED A VERY SMALL SCREW DRIVER THAT FIT ON THE END OF THE SPRING. ALLS WELL NOW. PLEASE LET ALL OTHERS KNOW.
