Hi from Sydney, Australia,
I am planning to refill a laser toner cartridge, and I am wondering how risky it is to not disassemble and clean out the cartridge -- maybe just vacuum out what one can through the refill hole.

Did you insert a brand new toner cartridge or refill only, if you insert a brand new they read your toner cartridge, if you insert a refill toner cartridge, first you need to reset the toner cartridge, i think in the right side, or left please switch and back to normal position.
Toner Blinking yellow LED indicates that the toner cartridge is nearly empty. Buy a new toner cartridge or refill the cartridge. Refilling the TN cartridges is quite simple and you can do it yourself. It is a very simple process. Please refer to this video.
Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Good Luck! Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help! CreativeTECH
I do not recommending refilling a laser cartridge, the toner powder is very fine and you don't want to breath in this powder. I suggest you purchase a recharged or re-manufactured toner cartridge for your model printer, these are much cheaper than the genuine new toner cartridges.
You don't. I own and operate a printer cartridge refilling shop and we don't offer refills for new Brother color lasers becuase there is not a quality toner available, even to us! Besides that hindrance, the way Brother cartridges work they need (should) be cleaned of used toner before refilling. These cartridges "recycle" their waste toner which can degrade print quality if not removed. It is possible to vacuum the toner, but keep in mind it can be explosive when aerosolized. If you do choose to vacuum at home be sure your vacuum has HEPA filtration BEFORE THE MOTOR. The spark from the brushes in the motor can ignite the toner.
Yeah you can refill your cartridge. It is really easy and consists of removing the plug on the side of the cartridge, dumping out any old toner and dumping in the new toner. Its very easy. I have purchased refill kits from both of these sites in the past and its worked great:
They also have great customer service. I hope this helps!
all brother printers and mfc products. if you are using generic tonere or refills, brother products will not recognize the toner cartridge as the refillers do not know how to reset the toner cart. this is priority info. therefor u must use brother oem toner.brother service rep
The magic word is "refilled." Not all refilled cartridges work correctly. Try another cartridge (a new one to be absolutely sure) to verify the printer is working properly. But my money would be on "defective refill."
