Open the front door and pull the whole toner and drum unit out of printer. The toner locking lever is usually on the left hand side as you see it and is usually blue in colour. It needs compressing and at the same time lift the front of the toner cartridge out of the drum unit. Your new cartridge will simply lock into place. When you install the complete unit and close the door, the new toner cartridge will reset your printers counter.

Brother HL 5170DN Printer Toner error


Trick Brother HL 5170DN printer into think there is toner left. Rather than run out for a new toner cartridge use a small (.5 x .5 in.) piece of black electrical tape to cover the sensor hole on the non-gear side of the cartridge. By covering the hole the printer is fooled into thinking the hopper is full of toner.

HL 227ODW brother printer gives me "cover open" and "no toner" indicators when I try to replace the toner cartridge


The manual mentions two covers, one being the fuser cover on the back.. make sure both are closed. It reads to me that the toner isn't inserted correctly. You might look closer at how it's installed.

Had this same problem on the same printer. Here is the solution.
Open the front cover of the printer and press "Cancel" & "Secure". This will access a secret menu that will let you reset the toner counter. There are 12 settings in all (3 per color).
Two thumbs up going out to TonerHacker007 on the fixyourownprinter.com forums for this one.

How do i change the toner on m my HL 2040 brother printer


How to Change a Toner Cart in a Brother HL 2040

The Brother HL 2040 laser printer has a toner cartridge that supplies toner to the drum assembly so that the printer can print properly. When the LED on the front of the printer indicates you are low on toner, you will need to replace the toner cartridge to maintain good print quality. Fortunately, the toner cartridge can be replaced without any special tools.

Instructions
Things You'll Need:

* Replacement toner cartridge (part number TN350 or TN360)
* Paper towel or scrap paper



Grasp the front cover of the printer and pull it toward you to open the toner door. Reach into the printer and grab the combined toner cartridge/drum assembly. Lift up slightly and pull it out of the front of the printer.

Place the cartridge and drum on a paper towel, spare sheet of paper, rag or other surface that can get dirty. Loose toner particles may spill from the cartridge.

Press the blue locking lever on the cartridge/drum unit to unlock the toner cartridge from the drum. Lift the toner cartridge up and away from the drum unit. Dispose of the old toner cartridge in accordance with your local regulations. Seal it in a plastic bag to keep loose toner from spilling.



Gently shake your new toner cartridge back and forth a few times to distribute the toner evenly across the width of the cartridge. Remove the plastic protective cover from the bottom of the cartridge.


Place the new toner cartridge onto the drum unit and press it down gently until it locks into place. The blue locking lever will automatically click into place. Verify that the toner cartridge is securely connected to the drum.


Locate the corona wire cleaner tab at the front of the drum unit. Slide it back and forth several times to improve the print quality of the drum. Set the tab back in the home position when finished.


Slide the combined toner cartridge/drum unit back into the printer and close the front cover.


Hope it helps...

It is perfectly safe to cover the sensors on either side of the cartridge. What works best is to cover it with a piece of black electrical tape. The cartridge is set up so that when you put it in the printer, the printer shines a laser from one end of the cartridge to the other. This laser reads the toner level. If you cover both sides up with tape, it tricks the printer into thinking the cartridge is full of toner.

Hope this helps! :)

Brother Laser HL-5240 has a status light and toner light. Fuser was replaced but no help.


that error usually indicates that the toner has reached its end of life
or the drum is not properly installed.

i had one person who put the toner in but threw the drum cartridge away.
