Question about Brother MFC-8860DN Printer
I replaced the toner in the MFC8860DN. It still displays a toner end life message and the machine will not work. I took the drum/toner assemble and placed it in another MFC8860DN and everything works, so the problem is in the original MFC, not in the drum/toner assembly. How do I reset the toner end life message so that the MFC knows it has a new toner in there? I am NOT talking about the drum.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
glad to help out

You can actually just remove the gear and spring. I posted this fix on another Brother printer. The good part of removing the gear and spring is you can print much longer too.
