If you are using a generic toner, replace it with cartridge from Brother. Many of these are caused by using a refilled cartridge or a generic cartridge. Use a cleaning sheet and run it though a couple of times, if this does not clear it up you need a new cartridge.
WHen the toner light comes on this means you need to replace the toner cartridge because its empty. The toner its the powder that is used to put on the paper, you will no longer be able to print until you replace it with a new one.
Try this... it reads the level of the toner and can become faulty. This clears it.
1: Turn off power and remove toner/drum 2: Tape the little spring loaded lever just inside the printer on the upper left hand side in the *DOWN* position! Do not replace drum yet and... 3: Turn power on to printer and let it cycle. Status/Toner lights will come on as usual. 4: Turn off printer, remove tape from lever, replace drum and turn back on.
Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem.Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges
This problem you are getting is to replace the toner cartridge. Have you recently changed the drum unit as well. If so exchange it back to the other one.
After installing new toner or full toner cartridge and removing the yellow plastic cover press the go button this should start the printer on a cycle and add the toner. If this doesn't work then the toner sensor has malfunctioned and will need replacing. This will in turn out way the cost of a new machine.
This works on several different Brother Printers to get rid of toner/drum empty errors:
1. Open the front cover and leave open while completing the following
steps. 2. Turn the printer off. 3. Hold the 'go' button while
turning the printer on. All panel lights should be on. 4. Release the
'go' button. 5. Press the 'go' button 2 times. 6. Pause. 7.
Press the 'go' button 5 times. 8. The toner light should be off. 9.
The paper light should be on or flashing [doesn't happen on all]. 10. Close cover. The ready
light should be the only light on.
