Question about Brother Office Equipment & Supplies

I have a Brother 8860DN. The LCD displays Toner end Life. I replace the toner and the message persists. I have taken the entire drum/toner assemble into another MFC 8860DN and it works fine. What is wrong?

There is a small flag on the left side of the cartridge that must be reset in order to trip a lever inside the printer to let it know that the cartridge has been replaced. You can defeat the door interlock switch and manually reset the lever inside the machine or start using a quality re manufactured toner cartridge from a reliable re filler.

Brother mfc 8860dn, what is the difference between drum and toner.


On this machine the toner cartridge is installed into the drum unit so they are separate units. After opening the front door you can lift and then pull out the toner cartridge/drum unit assembly. There is a blue release lever thet is used to release the toner cartridge from the drum unit. As far as the difference? Well the toner cartridge contains the toner, and the drum unit contains the drum as well as other parts that make up the print "process". The toner is good for about 5,000 pages while the drum unit is good for about 18,000 pages. The drum unit life indicator can be reset to get additional life from the drum unit. To do this, open the front door and leave it open. The press the clear/stop key, then press 1
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

I have the MCF 7340. I am getting a message - End of Drum Soon. So, I bought a new drum ($120) and installed it. Now it says Drum end. and won't print. Ive turned the machine on and off several times,...


If you open the front cover of your printer where you install the toner cartridge and press the "Clear/Back" button with it open, an option comes up on your LCD Display that says "Replace Drum?" press 1 to reset it. That should fix your problem!

Drum life near end


Depends on the usage of the machine. If hardly used, you should get a years worth. But here's what you can do:

Open front cover

Remove drum unit and toner cartridge assembly

Put drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back in machine, but do no close front cover.

Press Clear/Back
You will get a message "Replace Drum?"
Select Yes to confirm

Brother MFC 8860DN Toner End Life Error


Open the door where the toner goes. Press the 'back' button. Press *00. Do not respond to the query about the drum. Close the door. Other models may have to press the 'Options' button located near 'Copy'. This should work.

Toner end life message


i solved the brother mfc8860 toner life end problem
hi guys my name is reedwaan. Im new at this site so please listen up 
my brother toner i refilled with toner and inserted it. It said toner life end then i patched the windows close on the sides and still the same problem, then i removed the toner and loosened the two screws on the left by the gears then removed the cover of the gears. 
Right at the back there is a funny looking gear with a spring behind it. All you have to do is pull the spring a little bit clockwise and push the gear back on hooking the spring into it so that the gear is spring loaded. close it up then test it, It took me a while to figure it out but i got it right. 
NB*  The gear that you push on, is the toner reset gear and when you push it on make sure the teeth dont interlock with the second gear on the left of it. If you have any queries mail me on reedwaan@yahoo.com 
glad to help out

Change of toner


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.

Refill toner Brother MFC 7420


open front cover, press OPTION button, on the LCD will appear a message "NEW DRUM?" ....DO NOT RESPOND....just type on the keyboard "*00" and there will appear a message "Accepted" and use it in your pleasure.

PS. in any case i blocked with paper labels the viewing windows from transparent plastic on the toner itself....

Mr. Brother, do not try to be smarter than your customer
