No the gear should not be replaced. It just has be reset to it's starting position or the printer will not detect the cartridge as replaced.

I have a LBP 2900 B Canon printer. pl. give me a idea of this tonner refilling. step by step procss of refillng tonner, show in details drawing.


I recommend you do not try refilling toner cartridges, the toner powder is very fine and you do not want to breath in this toner powder.
You can purchase a new toner cartridge or a cheaper alternative is a re-manufactured toner cartridge.

Brother 2140 toner light keep flashing and i just replace it with new toner


You need to look at the toner cartrage if it was a new or compatible cartrage bought to replace the old one the problem would not exist unless the printer is broken.(Or if the replacement has a missing or broken or miss postioned counting gear.)


Thier is a counting gear on the left side and on new or replacement cartarages it is in the 11 oclock postion when it is new. When the toner is all used it moves to the 3 oclock postion. What you need to do if you refilled the toner from a refill kit is to manually move the gear.

I believe thier is two ways to do this one buy a reset gear tool.

The other way that I do is to remove the three screws carefully that holds all the gears in place. Dont worry as it is just the cover and you can not really break the cartarage unless you strip the screws.
Once opened manually using your hand push firmly on the counting gear until you move it back to the 11 oclock postion. Then carefully reassemble the cover.
Once you place the cartrage back in the light will go off on its own and the toner counter will be reset.

3 don'ts
Do not try to only move the counter without refill you may get a few pages but this is bad for the printer
Do not leave any toner in the cartrage when refilling as this contaminates the toner and really shortens the refill life, try to get all the toner out as possible before refill.
Do not keep reshaking the cartrage and place it back in the printer, everytime you insert the cartarage the it can snag or be inserted a tiny bit wrong and break the gears in the printer. Do so in emergencys only, the rest of the time just refill the toner. $10 with delivery on ebay

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

Gear making a grinding noise


Not too good news I'm afraid. It sound like the fuser gear has failed. Generally the fuser unit (hot section or hot rollers in the back) need to be replaced. Usually when the gear has worn or failed the fuser rollers are also worn and need to be replaced. The gear can be replaced seperately but is a very risky operation and usually results in parts in the fuser unit falling appart due to age and wear, so it is best done as a unit. If possible do not run the machine as it can cause damage to gears around the fuser unit. The best option is to find out how much a fuser unit and labour to fit would be at your local service centre.

Resetting Toner count onprint settings PRINT SETTINGS report


I don't suggest refilling cartridges as I work on printers every day but seems to me that you have done everything correctly the only thing I think you have done is either filled with incorrect toner thus giving a incorrect reading or when moving gear you have dislodged the pin that activates the reset procedure.

Thanks J
