    I may be dense - but I can't seem to find the toner level in the settings. I went to printers, selected properties for HL-5240, and then device settings - but don't see anything about toner level there or anywhere else in the tabs.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks in advance

SOURCE: how to check the toner level of Brother printer

It has no accurate measure of the toner left, it is reset when you put in a fresh toner and just counts prints. The Brother shines a light thru a little window from right to left and when the toner is empty the light shines thru and it says it's empty.

Check toner level on brother mfc9320cw machine


On the Brother MFC-9320CW you can check the toner settings through the printer directly. Go to your printer and press the "Menu" button (located in the center, slightly under & to the left of the screen). Then arrow down and click on "6. Print Reports." Select "Ok." Then arrow down and click on "5. User Settings". Select "Ok". Press "Start" to print the report. On the last printed page will be a list of toners and the bar will show you how much toner is left. Hope this helps.

Brother HL5140 won't print


Sadly this happens all the time - we have about 12 of these printers and 2 have the same problem at this moment and the only fix we have found previously is to replace the drum unit with a brand new one which is hardly economical - indeed the machines are all NHS funded and often the solution has been to throw the printers with this problem away and we have a few defunct ones piled in a corner because of this - if anyone knows why and how this happens ( the tech dept locally has no ideas but just wupply an new printer as they are cheap) I would be very interested also - changing the drum and cartride to a partly used one from a different machine does nothing at all either so it has to be something to do with the chip in the new drum resetting the machine but how and why is beyond us. In every case the printer prints perfectly before the fault and after the change to a new drum so I can only assume it is a way of generating more drum sales??
