I just had this problem and fixed it. The original toner cartridge that comes with the printer cannot be reset. You have to buy at least one new cartridge. The reason is that the original cartridge that comes with the printer doesn't have a reset flag. You can, however, refill/reset a cartridge that you buy separately. Pull out the drum and lift the cartridge out of the drum. Hold the handle and look on the left end. You should see a crescent shaped hole with a white flag/lever. To reset this, move the white flag all the way to the left (I had to use something to push it). Put it back into the printer and voila - it fixes itself. Then, after the printer has been reset, you can use the original cartridge again, if you want. The flag part won't matter once the printer has been reset. I hope this is clear. I know it worked for me, and I had the exact same problem.

    I pushed the flag back but the same thing happened on a new toner that I bought from staples so not a refilled one????

    Thank you! Original "starter" cartridge has no reset flag, yeah. But it is not necessary to buy normal cartridge to reset the printer. You can simulate "new cartridge installation" with three levers on printer itself with cartridge removed. Just release left black lever (A) from the front door (by pressing on it latches to push off the hole) and move inside the printer (unlocking the laser and activating drum gear), fix pressed thin white right lever (B) inside ("front cover closed" detector), press on white lever on the left inside the printer (where cartridge placed normally) - simulate the acting of "reset flag" of new full cartridge. Then turn printer ON, wait until it rotates the drum gears ("Please wait..." message on LCD) then release the lever in few seconds(simulating crescent flag turn, marking cartridge "used"). If you hold it too long printer think it cant reset the "new" cartridge and show the error (you can repeat with turning power off/on). If you done this correctly, printer behave like it has a new cartridge - turn it OFF, put all levers in original state (left bar fixed on door and right lever released). Then place the cartridge as usual and try to print.

If printer displays "Toner Life End" after installing new cartridge, open front cover, press 'Option' button, then key *00 on the keypad. This resets the device so it knows it has had a new cartridge.

this will reset toner counter on a lot of brother printers good luck

Brother 7030 printer drum end soon problem


that's not a problem, the printer warns you when your toner is soon to end. Get a new cartridge to replace it when it is all used up. Tip: Toner warning comes on early, you can get more pages out by taking the drum out and shaking it carefully.

Toner Problem.


Is this a remanufactured/ compatible unit? I suspect that the toner reset lever on the cartridge has either not been installed or not properly set. return for another one
