Sorry, this sounds outside my experience.  The only trigger for the 'illegal toner' message that I know is that the cartridge has the wrong plug on it.  A 'proper' Brother cartridge will have the same plug as the rest and be very easy to check.  
I have both refilled empty cartridges and used commercially refilled ones. As I said, the only time I have seen this message was with the wrong plug.  When I used non-spec toner I got 'ghosting' as the toner stayed too long on the transfer belt.  No error message, just poor quality printing.
OPC belts appear to need changing fairly often - I am on my third.  Take it out and have a look (note that it is light sensitive, do it quickly in dim light).  If it is not a clear shiny green it may not be up to spec.  As a quick fix you can reset the 'replace OPC belt' message, but they do wear out.  It is used to transfer toner from the cartridge to the paper - so failure means poor quality printing rather than a refusal to print.
Sorry I cannot help further.

OPC belt has 78% left -cant rid the problem


Look at the OPC belt edges, there's a shiny spot that passes thru a sensor, a can of air should blow out the sensor, carefully! When the sensor can't see the timing spot you get that error. You may have to replace the OPC since companies are imbedding a chip that tells the machine when they're used up.

Replace belt CG


Set Belt CG The OPC belt cartridge needs replacement.

Replacing the Optical Photoconductor (OPC)
Belt Cartridge
Replace the OPC belt cartridge at least once every 12 months, or when
the control panel display indicates that replacement is necessary. The life
of the OPC belt cartridge for the T8106 is about 60,000 images (15,000
color pages), at a 5% toner coverage rate on letter-size paper.
1. Turn the power switch off.
2. Unlock the lever to open the front
cover. This releases the pressure on the
toner cartridges.
3. Unlock the lever to open the top cover
fully.
4. Pull the green OPC belt cartridge lock
levers up until they unlock.

5. Pull the used OPC belt cartridge
upward and out of the printer carefully
to avoid spilling toner.
6. Discard the used OPC belt cartridge
Caution! Do not touch or wipe off any powder that is on the OPC belt, nor expose
the OPC belt to light.
7. Remove the two shipping pins from the
new OPC belt cartridge.
8. Remove the protective sheet that covers
the photosensitive belt.
9. Slide the new OPC belt cartridge downward
into both green lock-lever guides
and into the printer carefully.
10. Push the green OPC belt cartridge lock
levers down until they lock.
11. Close the top and front covers carefully
until they both lock.

NO OPC BELT on MFC-9420cn


The opc sensor is not sensing the belt. Open the front cover and remove all the toner trays. You will see the green OPC and the sensor is located in the left upper corner. Also open the top cover and remove the OPC. Clean the sensor with a soft bristle brush. Also make sure the OPC left side is free of toner deposits. This may incorrectly trigger the OPC position sensor. Hope this helps.

What is opc belt 2700 CN printer


the opc belt is the optical photo conductor belt in your printer. It is the bright green shiney belt you see when you remove a cartridge. You can access it through the top of your unit. You will see a cover where the paper comes out. Inside there are two green clips that push outward. These release the opc belt.
You can purchase a replacement opc belt from most good stationary and consumable suppliers, however, be ready for a shock. the price of the opc belt is almost as much as the unit is worth.

Error EE9 on Brother HL-2700CN


This is a sensor error (belt marker). Could be a piece of paper or such stuck in there from a previous jam futzing up the sensor. Are you comfortable poking around inside your printer?
