Question about Brother MFC-8440 All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Hi i have a Brother Mfc8440. for a while there was a sign that said toner empty. So i got a new toner cartridge rebuild kit. I tried to take all the ink out and to my surprise there was quite a bit that was still left in there. REgardless I put the new one in there and tried to test it. The same sign snowed up Toner Empty. So i tried the tape trick and it worked. But when I try to print there is barely any ink that is shown. Can you please help me. It doesnt really print with the ink.

Okay, you are not going to like this but using the rebuild kit is the failure.

Go get a factory new cartridge and see what happens.

Brother 1510 replace toner problem


Assuming you have tried to replace an empty toner with a new or refilled toner cartridge. Some of these machine simply fail to recognise the reset activation lever on the side of the cartridge. You could try removing the end cap at the geared end. You will find a half moon shaped gear which needs to be lifted out slightly and rotated a quarter turn clockwise. replace any other gears and refit the cover. This resets the toner cartridge to "new" state. If you printer doesn't recognise this, you will need to get a manual reset keycode from brother. Please note - some folk reset used cartridges this way and re-use them. Used toner will contaminate the drum and give poor print. Any residual contaminated toner on the drum can contaminate a new cartridge and so-on. Refilled cartridges are fine if the cartridge is completely cleaned out first.

Toner light stays on after I changed cartridge


These are defects of Brother cartridges, even you put a new cartridge the toner empty still not reset. What we are doing is re-positioning the toner end cam on the side of the cartridge. You have to be knowledgeable with the machine to to that.

I have a Brother Laser Printer HL-5350DN. I refill toner myself but the toner light will not go out. How do I reset it so it goes off?


There is a reset gear in the cartridge that needs to be "reset" or replaced. I've included a link to a PDF file that goes over the procedure to properly refill and reset the toner cartridge. This is a document that is used by a company that does a complete rebuild, so you probably won't need most of the information, just the part on resetting the reset gear.

Brother Toner Refills


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:

www.tonerrefillstore.com

www.lasertekservices.com

They also have great customer service. I hope this helps!

Low toner/toner empty


Toner cartridges have more then just "toner ink" they also have developer and sometimes a chip that says how many times the cartridge has been used. 
Also some refill places can be a bit dodgy so I know it might not seem like the best thing right now but try buying a real replacement cartridge and if that doesn't do it beg and plead to return it saying it was the wrong model.
If it does fix it then you might have a bad cartridge that either has the "chip" or the cartridge itself is simply worn out and in need of developer as well.

Brother mfc8440 clicking sounds while printing


I had the same problem when I used a refurb toner cartridge, had to replace cartridge with oem for it to print. After a while started making same noise, had to take it in to have parts replaced. Now I don't take any chances on non-oem parts, it's not worth it.
