Question about Brother MFC-8440 All-In-One Laser Printer
I've had this printer for several years with no problem. I've been using re-fills for some time as well. Recently, I got the toner empty message. I inserted a new re-filled cartridge. Now I still get the toner empty message. I've taken the cartridge back to the refill place to verify it has toner in it. The only solution that I can come up with is to remove the cartridge & drum unit for some time. When I insert back in, it will work but has the low toner warning on the screen.
I kept getting the dreaded Empty Toner warning which essentially locks up and makes your machine unusable. I used a little logic and applied the tape from previous Brother cartridges that is over the fill hole and it worked like a charm. I'm pretty sure any tape would work as I cannot see a magnetic device in the tape they use. It's obviously a proprietary technique to keep people following the above advice and but more Brother Cartridges. Buy refill kits and tape the plug holes my friends!

Toner cartridges have more then just "toner ink" they also have developer and sometimes a chip that says how many times the cartridge has been used.
Also some refill places can be a bit dodgy so I know it might not seem like the best thing right now but try buying a real replacement cartridge and if that doesn't do it beg and plead to return it saying it was the wrong model.
If it does fix it then you might have a bad cartridge that either has the "chip" or the cartridge itself is simply worn out and in need of developer as well.
