    Same thing here... I've even changed the drum, cleaned the corona wire, unplugged, re-started, pulled-out and pushed-back-in the cartridge and drum, shaken from side to side, checked the printer's network page, and STILL it says my BRAND NEW toner cartridge is empty after only 200 pages of just text.

I took the printer back to staples and returned it. exchanged it for a new printer.

when I brought it home, the new cartridges worked just fine. It was not the cartridges, it was the printer's problem. Thenk goodness i bought and extended warranty on the printer.

The cartridges were brand new and name brand so it didn't make sense that it could be that all 4 brand new cartridges were having a problem!

Brother MFC-9440CN Laser Printer is saying toner life end and I just put a new cartridge in.


If you want to reset your Brother MFC 9440N machine so you no longer have the error message: Toner End of Life, do the following:

1. Open the front cover of the 7820N, that is, the cover that allows you to pull out the toner and drum, but don't pull out the drum/toner.
2. Push the button: Options (located on the left of the control pad).
3. Type: *00 on the keypad.

The Brother MFC 9440N should be reset and the Toner End of Life message should disappear. Warning, this may void your warranty and ultimately damage your machine if you are reusing or refilling your cartridges, but you should already know that. Hope this helps.

I replaced the toner for MFC 7840W and I am still gettin the toner life end message, I can not print. Please help


As noted from a previous poster, this one works!

I have a brother mfc 7840w

I first used the electrical tape trick and that worked for a while. Then got the toner low message again. I then tried the *00 trick, which works as follows:

1. lift lid and open front cover
2. press clear/back. "Replace Drum?" will appear on the screen.
3. Press "*00" it will then read accepted and the toner low error (End of Toner Life) should go away.
4. close it all up and your done.

Thanks for all your help guys.

Toner Life End message on DCP-7040


If your cartridge has a lever on the left side near the rear, it needs to be reset, and there's a lever inside on the left that can stick and cause that error. You need to wiggle and pull that lever until it moves freely again.

Dcp 7020 and 7040 toner life end message premature, need override


When the Toner Life End LED flips on, requires you to replace the cartridge, even when there's still toner left in the cartridge. The machine detects end of life by shining a light through from one side to the other.
To circumvent the detection mechanism, remove the cartridge and put a piece of masking tape over or jam a little bit of paper into the clear opening/circle on the right side of the toner cartridge, and then pop the cartridge back in. Eventually, you'll start seeing streaks, and then you'll know that the cartridge is truly empty.
